    The High Light Zone at GABP

    The Reds have made a big deal out of the fact that they now have a highlight zone at the ballpark where they have a bunch of nice TVs and they can show all sorts of other major league games live via the Extra Innings package from Time Warner Cable.

    Well this is only a good idea if they set them to the right channels. They had a few of the TVs set to ESPN and a bunch of others were set to Extra Inning channels that had no games currently showing. I almost wanted to look for the remote and change the channels. There were a ton of games on EI tonight but precious few were shown at the ballpark.

    What's the use in having something like this if you don't make an effort to set them to channels showing games in progress?

    I would call the Reds management and I bet this will be the last time anyone encounters this problem.

    You've been brainwashed by those DirecTV commercials!

    (you are right, btw, I just really believe those DTV commercials employ hypnotism of some sort)

    Good point. I've sent them an e-mail describing the issue on Reds.com. I'll post here if I get a response.

    That's one of the best things about Bob C., he really seems extremely intent on customer satisfaction. Especially if it is something that is supposed to be done a certain way but is actually being done someway different.

    Where are they? On Opening Day we didn't get around at all except to our seats.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Hmmm...what time where you watching the TVs? I was there last night and they had the Boston/Toronto, Pittsburgh/Florida, Kansas City/Minnesota, Seattle/Baltimore, Washington/St. Louis, and a couple NBA games - of course, this was about 9:00pm when some of the games were still going on the eastern/central time zones. I didn't go back that way again - so I didn't know if they were showing the west coast games.

    I'll look at this for today's game. There should be 6 games going on (besides the Reds) after 1pm.

    Re: The High Light Zone at GABP

    The example I gave the Reds in my e-mail was about 11pm and there were no other games on. There should have been at least Anaheim-Texas (Josh Hamilton), Cleveland-Oakland (Ohio team) or Dodgers-Padres.

    Re: The High Light Zone at GABP

    I did get a response from the Reds today and here it is:

    Thank you for your note. We are in the process of training some of our seasonal ballpark staff to monitor the TVs in the Highlight Zone for the rest of the season. As with many new features to the ballpark, it takes just a little “seasoning” for us to get the process down to perfection. But, we will certainly get there!

    Zach's a good guy - I usually get a pretty good response (even if it's the company line) from him.
