Waited my whole life to see the CUBS win at Wrigley and at the LAST OUT- it cut to a COMMERCIAL!!!! Never saw the end. When it came back the game was OVER!!! WHO DID THAT!!! Was watching with my 92 YR. OLD father. RUINED that moment for life. A once in 71 year moment...RUINED. I want answers!
The network feed would have had gaps set to accommodate ads by all the affiliates. It was the initial broadcast team at the playing field who made the ad break, not the local station - they just inserted their ad at the appointed time.
If seeing the final out of a World Series game while the Cubs were playing to be the sole peak of a 71 year life span, I truly feel sorry for you. I would consider many achievements as my children or grandchildren grow, personal achievements, and the graceful and healthy aging of my parents as far greater milestones. You can see the catch in replays and highlights. The family stuff may be recorded only in your memory.
