Huckleberries: Football fans on losing team amid TV signal showdown

In the “If Looks Could Kill Department,” a middle-age good ol’ boy woulda/coulda/shoulda met his maker while standing in line at CdA’s Time Warner HQ. Sez he to a buddy: “Hey, did you see the BSU game last night? It was the best football game I have ever seen.” He continued on, according to Huckleberries Online (HBO) commenter MamaJD, oblivious to glares from cuss-tomers who’d been cheated from viewing the Mother of All Idaho Bowl Games between Boise State and Oklahoma due to Time Warner’s whizzing match with KAYU-TV. MamaJD, who owns a high-def TV and shells out $130 monthly for Time Warner service (their word, not Huckleberries’), and seven others were there for the free rabbit ears offered by Time Warner to capture the KAYU signal. Only MamaJD’s rabbit ears didn’t work. Now, as a result of the Greedy Grinches Who Stole The TV Signal, she and hubby are facing January without some playoff football.

“As you recall, Meghann Cuniff and her roommate were playing Monopoly when Bloody Woman (Wednesday Huckleberries) hammered on her apartment door. Inquiring minds want to know who won. Answer: Meghann’s roommate. Meghann sez she made some poor investments.

“HBO commenter Dan Gookin watched the premier broadcast of the new KVNI morning (sans Dick Haugen) Tuesday at the Iron Horse. But wasn’t allowed on the air. Dan said that was a wise move because he woulda “asked why the peppy new KVNI 1080 PT Cruiser had Washington tags.”
