Fox TV to Ruin Baseball….Forever

with 5 comments

Thank goodness for Sportsnet, because I think I might have to punch someone if they turn on the Fox feed tonight.

This was just posted up on Deadspin, so I’ll assume that most of you have already seen it and threw up in your mouth a little. I recommend a quick swish of Listerine and an after dinner mint. You’ll be feelin’ fresh in no time.

Not trying to kickstart a debate or anything, but I think we all know by now this is a Canadian blog, and we’re a little more Liberal then our American counterparts. Some might say Gay Nader Fan’s for Peace Liberal. But are you serious? I think my favourite part was when Santa Claus came off the bench to hit the walk-off series winner and still managed to tackle Osama Bin Laden as he was rounding third. I could go on for hours.

Oh wait, I figured it out – it’s a Video Resume for George W. Bush’s run at the commissioners office. The apocalypse is near.

  1. I like how they managed to point out that people love baseball because it’s a diversion from politics and the problems of the world by featuring it in an extended montage alongside current politics and the problems of the world.

  3. On the Jays’ website, Rolen is quoted about lowering his hands when he swings. Watching straight on video clips didn’t show anything because the frames were too slow. Can anyone verify what Rolen is claiming?

    I think that’s my favourite comment in the history of the internet.
