The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
I'm happy with ESPN doing them.
And I'm happy its moving away from Fox. They had no idea how to do college football.
This is the day of the expanding man...
So is this ESPN on ABC or ESPN on cable?
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
ESPN on cable, I believe.
That's the way sports, save the Super Bowl and March Madness, appear to be headed.

The Fox production of the last two BCS title games has been awful. The camera fixed on the band, the repetitive commercials, poor camera angles, and Thom Brennamen. Add it all up and it is painful.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
An untrained monkey and a parrot could have done a better job then FOX, glad to see ESPN get it.
And yet, on cable, it means those of us without cable are SOL. Great way to build the base, but then again, I'm sure I'm in the minority at this point.

Honestly, I don't think companies are that upset about missing out on the advertising dollars represented by the demographic that doesn't have basic cable. Overall, the buying power of that demographic is just not that strong.
Baseball is not necessarily an obsessive-compulsive disorder, like washing your hands 100 times a day, but it's beginning to seem that way. We're reaching the point where you can be a truly dedicated, state-of-the-art fan or you can have a life. Take your pick. ~Thomas Boswell
Having a life is overrated.
