No Sunday Night Game...

I just don't see why ESPN chose to cater to Fox. If the World Series were on ABC, then sure, they all play for the same corporate entity. I thought the idea was to put on the thing that would draw the most people, and what draws more viewers on ESPN than Sunday Night Football? I mean, I know there are 5 people in the U.S. that haven't seen the World Series of Poker on TV yet, but couldn't that wait? :-C

It is probably a part of ESPN's baseball contract that they don't show NFL against the World Series. Pretty clever, actually.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Actually its an NFL deal. The NFL and NBA are the only 2 leagues that take into account other leagues. Its actually a good thing for the fans b/c the NFL doesn't do stupid thing like put the only 2 playoff games on at the damn time.

Sorry but I have to agree with no NFL game Sunday night. For me, it would be too hard to switch back and forth from my fantasy interests to my beloved Bronx Bombers.

The Red Sox are so annoying. I'm sick of looking at those goatees.
