Sox are playing the Rays right now (Wed 4/7), 1:05 start.

An extra wrinkle is that the game is being broadcast on YouTube (not YouTubeTV, but regular ol' YouTube). It's not on NESN.

I AM WATCHING A GAME IN THE THREAD.

Amazing.

EDIT: Got rid of the ellipses since this is Rip's thread.

so do the "youngs" (as opposed to fellow "olds" not watch full-screen? I ask because i have the game on my second "monitor" at my desk (that second monitor is a 32 inch TV, but whatever) and I don't have full screen on. They keep popping up interactive polls and there's a chat whizzing by on the right hand side. I was curious and went full screen and, predictably, none of that shows up.
Seems odd that the optimal viewing experience doesn't include the "benefits" of having this on a digital platform

Probably because for the "youngs" the viewing experience is secondary to the "benefits" experience on a platform like this. The attraction is participating in all that extra stuff, not necessarily watching the game closely.

Why does it feel like we face this guy all the time? Happenstance?

Fake edit: this will be his 28th career start v. the Sox, most v. any team.

With as many day games as there have been so far, maybe we need a thread to remind us when they're playing at night instead?
