another reason to enjoy MLB network more than BBTN

Not sure if anyone else is watching both MLB Tonight on the MLBN and BBTN on ESPN, but I have to say MLB is much more entertaining and educational than BBTN.  I also enjoyed seeing Mitch Williams and HR today.

Case in point:  during the coverage of the Cubs-Reds game tonight, both broadcasts showed the cat running around the field.  What did MLB Tonight show?  They cut to Brenly's comments on WGN about remembering a game at the Kingdome and something similar happening.  Then they even showed the clip from that game in 1984!

What do our friends at BBTN show?  1969 and the black cat with Santo.  Then they immediately show the foul ball that Soriano chased near the Bartman seats, and of course cut to a certain clip of the 2003 NLCS..  ugh.  Who really wants to see these lame stereotypical Cubs highlights that aren't relevant?  They're almost worse than Joe Buck and FOX.  Almost.

Unrelated tidbit:  Vasgersian (sp?) mentioned that Harden's 26K's in 15 innings is the most to start a season since the turn of the century.
