(ETA 12:06 pm No Pre-Game Tribute or mention of Parks or the band yet. Disappointing.)

Just called Comcast to see what it would take to get the Big Ten Network for the day for today's UMass vs UMich game. They are supposed to have a tribute to UMass Band Director George N Parks in the wake of his sudden passing, a live shot of the band and a moment of silence. I'm hoping there may even be some half-time coverage since they ended up continuing out for the game.

In Salem, MA it's part of their Sports & Entertainment package which costs $7.95/mo.

It costs $1.99 to add to the account. It costs $1.99 to take off the account.

When you remove it, it's prorated to how long you had it for the month. $7.95/30 days is ~$0.26 per day.

So to get the game for the day provided YOU CANCEL THE PACKAGE AFTER THE GAME should be about $4.26.

I am Tivoing it and adding 10min before and 1hr after it.

Comcast customer support is 1-800-266-2278

Here's additional info on where it's being broadcast.

Apparently Kodak is now discontinuing manufacturing and distribution of Kodachrome film. A sad day but a nice tribute.

Courtesy of a post by [livejournal.com profile] derspatchel from last week, my own quick, random cold-induced tribute to the famous Paul Simon song "Kodachrome" - we still have our Cameraphonochromes:

Cameraphonochrome
[to the tune of "Kodachrome" by Paul Simon1]

They give us those annoying T-talkers
They give us the freaky hands-free seeming-stalkers
Makes you think all the world's a crazy place, Oh yeah
I got a iPhone gadget
But love to take a photograph
So mama don't take my cameraphone away
So mama don't take my cameraphone away
So mama don't take my cameraphone away
