The World Series

I'm very mad about this. I am probably going to write more about this for FanHouse later, but doesn't it sicken you that the way baseball is presented and, by extension, played in the playoffs doesn't even resemble the regular season sport? Playing baseball at the end of October is like watching an X-Files episode without Mulder and Scully. It's technically the same idea as the regular season, but nothing's the same. Bud Selig allows the season to go far beyond its natural end, and FOX's presentation of the games just pisses all over everything else.

Hey! Game 5 is delayed again! I bet that decision has nothing to do with FOX wanting to show House at 8 PM tonight instead of baseball. Nope. Nothing at all.
