    Frank,
    You lucky b*****d! [​IMG] Too bad they won't be expanding it to the DirecTV broadcast of the game, as well.
    *is drooling* just thinking about what it would be like to see a *possible* Slammin' Sammy Sosa HR blast out on to Waveland (and Cubs win) in HD and all its, crystal clear image quality, glory. Wonder what the Ivy will look like in HD? Wow... the possibilities.
    Frank, and other Chicagoland HDTV (and Cubs!) enthusiasts better give us some reviews and comments of the game afterwards! Will be looking forward most definately to that game recap!
    Thanks.
    Jeremy M

    This is great news. Hopefully WGN will get enough positive feedback that they will spring for their own HD equipment rather than using Mark Cuban's.
