 @BenKoo  Thanks for asking, and yeah, life has gotten significantly less crazy in the recent months. We're settled in and happy with our new place. Always heading out to A's games, and the wife and I are treating a big group of friends to a luxury suite game later this month. If anything makes A's games better, it's a private bathroom, air conditioning, and a fridge full of beer.

Hey Ben, nice write up all around. On the "Turner Broadcasting" vs "Turner Sports" thing, this is just semantics. Turner Broadcasting made the acquisition because Turner Sports isn't empowered to do so.

 

B/R is under the TS umbrella. TS is, along with TNT, TBS, TruTV, and CNN, under the TB umbrella, which is one of the 4 autonomous units (along with HBO, Time Inc. (who owns/controls SI), and Warner Bros) that makes up Time Warner.

 

So while I can't comment (because I don't know) about future plans for Turner's networks, I can confirm that B/R is part of the Turner Sports family.
