About that informercial
He’s right. They’re re-starting tonight’s suspended Game 5 of the World Series at 8:37 p.m. That’s because the Democrat running for president has purchased a half-hour of time for a political infomercial, starting at 8.
I don’t know if Obama realized he’d be interrupting World Series mania, especially here in the land of unchecked Phillies Phever, but that’s what will happen tonight.
So if you flip on the TV at 8 expecting to see the Fox pre-game show, don’t bother, unless of course you’re interested in what Obama has to say.
He’ll be on all the networks but one. ABC is going with its normal programming.
The truth of the matter is the only thing Obama is interrupting is the pre-game show. Do you really think that Fox would start this game any earlier even if they could? Not for a second.
They would have given us the full half-hour buildup, then gotten around to picking up the game, which will start with the Phils batting in the bottom of the sixth, sometime around 8:30.
Still, point taken. Add Obama to the list of things that are wrong with playing the World Series at these outrageous times, and in these miserable conditions.
