America's Favorite Game

"No one will delay the World Series game with an infomercial when I'm president," so said John McCain. Of course, how a president has the power to decide when a baseball game starts I have no clue. But once again, McCain is just trying to score cheap political points. Joe Coppola, the Fox executive who negotiated the deal, has said that Obama's purchase of TV time is not pushing the start of the game back. Instead, all it's doing is replacing the pre-game show. "We didn’t push back the game at all," he said.

If McCain really wants to be mad at someone, he should be mad at Fox. "We’re just missing the pregame, which isn’t a big deal for us. It was a business decision." That's right, Fox puts its profits above America's favorite past time.

Joe Coppola is the FOX exec. Joe Buck is the play-by-play commentator for the World Series. But he sucks just as much, as does FOX baseball's pre-game show.

Thanks for pointing out my mistake. I have fixed it. I guess that's what happen when you spend hours on end reading political news on the Internet. Your eyes just go.
