UPDATE: The game finally got on the air at 8:28pm ET with the Rays up 1-0. The game hit the airwaves just before a double-play in the bottom of the first meaning fans missed almost an entire inning, including Coco Crisp being tagged out on a move from the pitchers mound to first, Shields striking out Pedroia and Ortiz and B.J. Upton's homerun off Josh Beckett to make the game Rays 1-0 at the time.

For those that are tuning into TBS to catch Game 6 of the ALCS, you had to be asking yourself why you were seeing Dick Clark’s Bloopers or The Steve Harvey Show. Apparently, TBS had technical difficulties in Atlanta getting the game on the air.

As of 8:15 pm ET, TBS had yet to get the game on the air and by 8:25, the broadcaster has begun running a ticker that "the game is in progress."

Frustrated? Bored? Tell us what you think in our comments, and look for a detailed article on the game from a television perspective this weekend. Somehow we think baseball fans are not seeing TBS as "Very Funny".
