Sam is absolutly right. I think that ESPN has forced the NFL upon us. They have set the adgenda and decided that football was giong to be America's passion.
NFL live is on every day with a cherry time slot. If ESPN cared about other sports they would have Shoot-Around or Baseball Tonight on all the time. Even now, with baseball in full swing, Baseball Tonight airs at MIDNIGHT!
Apparently there is nothing sexy about football. And it is true that Stink Schlerth is a dream boat (much better looking than Timmy or Peter). But I promise you this, if ESPN devoted as much time to Baseball as it does to football, including college and high school games, I know that baseball would be king.
For now, we have to deal with the morons who think that football is the best thing in the world. Granted everyone knows that hitting a round ball with a round bat coming at you at 95 mph from 60 feet 6 inches away is the hardest thing in sports; much harder than running a route or blocking a man.
Thank you ESPN . . . or should we call you ESPNFL!
