I'm not going back to the late '70s when we had one TV and I had to follow almost everything on radio! If by some miracle the Sox, Bruins and Celtics were back on free TV I would cut the cord tomorrow.

A hat-tip to radio: I am listening to the Red Sox on WDEV (96.1 Warren) 
right now (lose to the Phillies).  And that's become a "good habit" for 
me. I have found that with radio I can take the Sox game with me as I go 
about my evening to-do list while with TV I'd be locked down. It's a 
retro thing but it works.

It reminds me of Eddie Andelman in the 80s predicting the impossible 
that Boston's pro sports teams would be gone from "free TV".  It 
happened.  Most cable or satellite subscribers become oblivious to the 
$60-100 a month that's paid-out.

We do miss out on NASCAR once the "chase" kicks in and Fox loses the 
races to cable the remainder of the season.
