Obama Controls the World Series


Because the World Series doesn’t start late enough, Barack Obama has asked for, and received approval from MLB and Fox to start any potential game 6 of the World Series fifteen minutes later. That’s because he’s purchased a half hour of airtime from Fox so that he can air a longer commercial for his campaign.

“Fox will accommodate Senator Obama’s desire to communicate with voters in this longform format,” Fox Sports said in a statement. “We are pleased that Major League Baseball has agreed to delay the first pitch of World Series Game 6 for a few minutes in order for Fox to carry his program on Oct. 29. If requested, the network would be willing to make similar time available to Senator McCain’s campaign.”

I for one hope it is like the old Ross Perot ad buys where it is a half hour full of lots of charts and graphs. Now THAT’S exciting television!

    I will not be watching the World Series this year, due to MLB’s delay to
    compensate Obama.

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
