So, it turns out CSN DID air the rally, but started with Sox Highlights...ok, I could see that, but still - just bad programming. I did set a timer for it, so it did record and I was able to see the montage, kinda. CSN had a wide view of the crowd for most of it, not sure why, but hey, I'm not a director.
So I guess in the end, no harm done, but really folks - let's get out poop together next time eh? Like the World Series montage better be scheduled correctly...:)
