Why do I need cable?

People have been telling me I need cable. When I ask why, I get two responses:

1) The Daily Show and Colbert Report
2) ESPN

With regards to point 1, Comedy Central puts the entire episodes of Stewart and Colbert online in clip format, so you don’t even have to watch commercials.

With regards to point 2, what exactly am I missing without ESPN? Sportscenter and Baseball Tonight are unwatchable. ESPN shows very few actual sporting events these days, and people employed to describe the action are unbearable. Joe Morgan, the network’s top baseball analyst, has inspired an entire website devoted to pointing out how little he knows about baseball. ESPN does show a good number of college football games, but you might hear something like this in a game in overtime. Is that really worth the $50 per month?
