Those of us who subscribe to MLB.TV are blessed with not having to watch a season's worth of repetitive and mostly stupid commercials all season long. Instead, screens come up saying commercial break in progress.
Last year, we got sick of Tom Petty because the same clip of a song was on every single commercial break. This year, MLB.com decided at first to make a pong screen, but after one day of these horribly annoying pong blips, they switched to a screen that played a soft roaring crowd, which was fine, except after a bit, a clip of some country song "How do you like me now?" came on. After a week of that, it was old. Now, a Pacman screen comes up. The Pacman is a baseball, but I can't for the life of me tell what the heck the ghosts are supposed to be. And if someone played the way it shows on the screen, he'd never get past the first level!
