Earlier this afternoon I was talking to a friend of mine about being able to watch the Yankees on Cablevision this coming season. I said, "Even though everything looks good, I can't get excited yet. I won't believe it until I see it."
Sure enough, things aren't looking so good for about 3 million Cablevision subscribers, as talks have broken off between YES, and Cablevision.
Excuse me if I wearily shrug my shoulders and say, "I told you so."
The collapse of the talks came less than a month after the two sides vowed to work out their differences on behalf of the fans. The Yankees start their season Monday.
"Unfortunately, at the moment, Cablevision and the YES Network are unable to agree on the details of the previously announced agreement to have Yankees games carried on the Cablevision cable systems,'' Mayor Michael Bloomberg said in a statement.
