Monday Linkage or It's a Baseball Monday

Yesterday’s baseball action involving the Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins along with the New York Mets and the Milwaukee Brewers was absolutely compelling television. If you had the MLB Extra Innings package on cable or satellite or the MLB.TV package on the internet, you could flip back and forth between the games. I do […]

League Division Series

With the Mets choking for the second year in a row, we have an interesting look for the National League Division Series which begin on Wednesday. I have to say switching between FSN Wisconsin and SNY between 4:10 p.m. and 5:10 p.m. was quite interesting, especially when Ryan Braun hit a two run home run […]

Saturday Links

As I’m getting ready to watch College Gameday on ESPN, I have the NFL Network on and for the second straight week, I happen to catch a new program called “Starting 11” which combines NFL Films footage with segments hosted by the extremely lovely Michelle Beisner who is an early candidate for Five Women Who […]

The 24 "Redemption" Trailer

The last season of 24 was absolutely horrible and as big a fan as I am of The Amazing Race, I was even more so of 24 until Season 6. I was a huge fan of the show on the border of obsession, but Season 6 almost ruined my faith in the series. However, this […]

Fox Sports Announcing Assignments for MLB, 09/27/08

Fox has coverage of four games on Saturday. The main game will be the Cubs at Milwaukee. While NESN’s Jerry Remy will work with former Red Sox TV play-by-play man Dick Stockton on the Yankees-Red Sox, I think Mets-Marlins would have been the better choice. Red Sox are in the playoffs and unless the Tampa […]
