MLS Game Tape Delayed By Yu-Gi-Oh! TV Show

Yu Gi Oh MLS Game Tape Delayed By Yu Gi Oh! TV Show

Today’s MLS game between Toronto FC and Real Salt Lake isn’t going to be shown live on television in Utah because, wait for it, the local TV station is going to air an episode of the children’s cartoon Yu-Gi-Oh! instead.

Toronto against Real Salt Lake kicked off at 1pm ET and is being shown live on Canadian TV channel TSN. But if you live in Utah, the local TV station has to show three hours of continuous children’s programming (per the FCC), which means that the Real Salt Lake game will be shown on tape delay an hour after it kicks off.

You’ve got to “love” local programming!
