There’s no doubt Red Sox fans had their prayers answered late last night.
After four hours of nail-biting excitement, capped off by a Jonny Gomes 3-run homer, and an all hands on deck pitching performance, the climax of the 2013 World Series game 4 was something we all deserved to witness.
But we didn’t.
In a very ironic way, the night before, when the Boston 9 lost on a weird obstruction call, which none of the players saw, only the fans, thanks to replay…this was an ending that only the players saw, not the TV viewers.
Sure, about 40,000 red-shirted patrons saw it too, but considering the amount of money Fox Sports pays to broadcast the World Series, world-wide, I’m willing to bet there’s a producer with more than a bit of egg on his face right now.
If you stayed up well past your bed time, like I did, you too missed the greatest and first ever game-ending pick-off in World Series history.
What you did get to see were two young ladies modeling a Cardinals hat and blanket.
As long as the MLB is going to review the obstruction rule, I vote they also reconsider some broadcasting protocol.
How about this one…when it’s the bottom of the 9th in any game, and timeout has not been called, when showing attractive women in the stands, it can only be done by split screen…that way we get it all.
What’s my moral/spiritual point today?
Then Jesus told him, “Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
