Spring Baseball TV Schedule

MASN has announced it's spring training slate, with a total of eleven games, which breaks down to eight Nationals games and seven Orioles games, because the teams play each other several times (Up from 4 Nats and 2 Orioles games covered by their respective channels in previous years). When the two teams play, the home team's announcers will be featured, except in their final contest, which will feature a split between MASN and MASN2 (the redubbed MASN Plus), with each channel carrying one team's announcers. Day games will re-air that evening in prime time, night games the following day.

The schedule listed on the MASN website is set up in an odd way, which the Washington Post mimicks, so I'm going to go ahead and present the schedule my own way, which I think is simpler to navigate, for your viewing pleasure:
  • Saturday, March 3, 1:05 pm - Orioles at Nationals, Viera, FL
  • Thursday, March 8, 1:05 pm - Astros at Nationals, Viera, FL
  • Friday, March 9, 1:05 pm - Nationals at Orioles, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
  • Monday, March 12, 1:05 pm - Mets at Nationals, Viera, FL
  • Sunday, March 18, 1:05 pm - Red Sox at Orioles, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
  • Wednesday, March 21, 7:05 pm - Braves at Nationals, Viera, FL
  • Saturday, March 24, 1:05 pm - Dodgers at Orioles, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
  • Tuesday, March 27, 7:05 pm - Mets at Nationals, Viera, FL **
  • Wednesday, March 28, 1:05 pm - Cardinals at Orioles, Ft. Lauderdale, FL **
  • Friday, March 30, 2:05 pm - Nationals at Orioles, Norfolk, VA
  • Saturday, March 31, 1:05 pm - Orioles at Nationals, Washington, DC ***
** Featuring Orioles or Nationals Xtra
*** Both teams' announcers on separate channels

The other bit of news we're getting from all this is that, during the regular season, Nats and O's games will share the main channel equally, alternately going to the alternate channel when games conflict.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.
