I would have really liked to stay up and watch the entire World Series Game 6 last night but since the game clearly wasnt going to be over before midnight I decided to go to bed at 11 and miss what turned out to be a great ending. With Baseballs decline in popularity over the years you would think they would have caught on by now that these late night game endings are not helping them out at all(especially this series with its record low ratings). My kids are both fans of baseball but theres no way im letting them stay up that late on a school night just to watch the games.

So tonights game is at 8:05, wouldnt it be better if they just had it on Saturday during the Day? Yes I know theres college football on at that time but at least you will pick up a few extra viewers from people flipping Channels back and forth and kids will be up and able to watch the entire game. Oh well, maybe Im wrong.

Oh and one more thing, Joe Buck is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Get rid of that monotone douchenozzle please.

When the Cards tied it up in the 9th, I turned it off and went to bed. Even that was staying up a little late for me. I agree, start them earlier.

Well, i for one could care less how long a game takes. I love baseball, even the everlasting games that occur like last night. (great finish by the way) What they could do is start the games earlier, like say, 7 pm instead. But this series is also a bit of an anomaly. Both teams' starting pitching blows so both managers use the ever loving shit out of their pens which gives us an extra 10 mins each time a new pitcher is trotted out onto the mound. With a total of 10 pitching changes you're looking at 1 1/2 of games time right there. And why no replay on obviously blown calls. I might be able to understand durig the regular season, but this is the series...we've already had 3 seriously bad calls (all of them favoring the cards) and they could all have been fixed by watching having an umpire in a booth call down and say blown call. and yes, Joe Buck is a tool who got his job because of his dad, who was actually very good. And I hate McCarver as well. Guy is only right about what he says 50% of the time and the other 50% he's full of himself. Deion Sanders had it right when he dunked him.
