Money Grubbers

The UA basketball team is ranked as high as 5th in the pre-season polls.

The first game is on Friday, November 8 against Cal Poly.

And neither I nor most of my friends nor many of the poor and working people in Tucson will watch or be able to afford to watch.

It will be available only on PAC 12 TV.

Regular cable won’t do it.

In fact a poor guy like me might get only about a third of the games this year on TV.

That is because thanks to the UA and the PAC 12, I would have to plunk down $34.99 a month more to COX in order to get PAC 12 TV.

Who in the barrio has an extra $35.00 a month to get PAC 12 TV?

In this, the sixth poorest city in the country.

This is a big kick in the teeth to the average Tucsonan, who is accustomed to be able to watch the Wildcat basketball team.

Is nothing sacred?

El equipo de baloncesto de la Universidad de Arizona ha ranqueado como el 5to mejor, en sondeos de la pre-temporada.

El primer juego es el viernes 8 de noviembre en contra de Cal Poly.

Y ni yo ni la mayoría de mis amigos ni muchos de los pobres o la gente trabajadora en Tucson lo veremos o podremos darnos el lujo de pagar para verlo.

Estará disponible solo por PAC 12 TV.

El cable normal no es suficiente.

De hecho, una persona pobre como yo tal vez solo podrá ver un tercio de los partidos este año en la TV.

Gracias a la Universidad de Arizona y el PAC 12, yo tendría que pagar $34.99 dólares más al mes a COX para poder obtener PAC 12 TV.

¿Quién en el barrio tiene $35.00 dólares extras al mes para obtener PAC 12 TV?
