I don't see anybody in the country watching this one except in Chicago. I can also see the ratings being higher in the Twin Cities than they are in Detroit. Sunday night football certainly does not have to worry about their ratings being compromised

We're supposed to worry about ESPN's ratings now?

Believe it or not, some people still prefer baseball to football.

I'm loving all the national attention lately. Not only because of the spotlight on our team, but because being out of state allows me to watch a decent amount of games without getting MLBtv.

Hope we clean up the Kitties like we did last time on National TV.

I'm "out of state" and I get to watch All of the White Sox games! I even happen to have Full Season Tickets!

I guess it helps though that being "Out of State" for Me means Indiana and when I say Indiana, I mean Northwest Indiana and when I say Northwest Indiana, I mean Schererville and when I say Schererville I mean 25-30 minutes from the Park! :redneck

Who gives a crap about Sunday Night Football and its ratings? If the weather is OK Sunday, I'll probably go to the Sox game. In which case, the ratings for the Sox game will be even lower since I'll be watching in person instead of on TV.

Football is not nearly as interesting as baseball, IMO.

Go Sox!

Football season doesn't truly start for me until baseball ends. When the Bears go to camp, I'm not that thrilled. When the Sox go to spring training, life suddenly gets a helluva lot better.

Yeah, it does have to do with English. I'm an English major....I think my grammar is good enough to attain that significance.

Great... between the Sunday night game, and rain Sunday from midwest to east coast, they'll be getting into NY about 4-5 am. That bodes well for a White Sox winner on Monday.

I'm thinking of that next season and dumping MLB.TV, whats the cost on that?I almost forgot to answer your question. It cost me $139 for the entire season. I'm sure it varies a little from one cable or satellite provider to another.

The MLB package cost me $159 on Comcast this season, but it's well worth it. On days when the Sox aren't playing or already have played, you can watch as much baseball as you'd like. Damn cool.

Interesting comment. Many think baseball is boring. More (younger generations) will think that way unless Bud promotes another steroid era. (Which I thought was the most boring baseball ever.)

Baseball is great on the radio or at the park. Football is best on the TV. A couple of weeks ago I was looking for a pocket radio so I could go outside on nice summer evenings and listen to games. They don't exist anymore. Baseball gives you the opportunity to do other things while listening to a game. Football is fine when you can't enjoy the outdoors.

When does the NFL start its reguar season, anyway? Not that I care, but I've seen a couple of Raiders promos, and it would be nice to avoid the Sunday BART congestion that the football season curses me with.

I can't believer that anyone, certainly any Sox fan, would want to watch an out-of-market football game on a Sunday night when they could watch Sox baseball.

Last weekend was the opening weekend for the NFL season. All that matters is that Da Bears are 1-0 right now.
