Hello from San Sebastian, Spain where vacation continues. It’s an overcast morning here, but I welcome it, as I can use a break from the sun. Plus it gives me literal cover to sit inside (still looking at the beach!) and write.
Obviously, I didn’t watch the fight because it was on in the middle of the night here. Plus I wasn’t about to pay $100 for it (if I even could overseas) on cable. That’s another relic of the television era that will undoubtedly be shifting
as well. Presumably, these types of events will go more directly to fans. Of course, only if they can get their systems working – apparently the entire fight was delayed
due to the PPV system being down. 🤕🥊
Meanwhile, many folks watched it just fine, for free, on Periscope
. Clearly, this wasn’t legal but content – especially overpriced, hard to access content – uh, finds a way
