Honey, I zapped the Sox...

So I was watching Wakefield pitch knuckle balls in a scoreless game when I hit the cable TV wire with a dog toy while playing fetch. Sparks flew and the circuit blew...turns out that the junction box near the cable TV wires is held in by what might generously be described as metal clips (tinfoil seems more accurate) and the impact of the Kong flying ring with the cable TV wires next door bent a clip into a screw terminal, shorting the whole circuit.

Half an hour later, after finding the problem, unwelding the clip from the screw terminal and bending it back into place, we turned everything back on to discover Cleveland up 7. Apparently the clip wasn't the only thing that suffered a melt-down. :-(
