Plenty in this NY Times story to get the ol' juices flowing: http://tinyurl.com/dbhwo. It's from their business/media section and basically represents the FOX spin on why this World Series might be watchable. Apart from the novelty of having a network pin its ratings hopes on our heroes, the story reaches a new low by calling the Cell a "Soviet-style edifice." :angry:

Still, there's reason to hope about the FOX coverage. Sort of:

"Whatever has kept the White Sox from winning the World Series since 1917 will not be dwelt upon. The Foxians insist that they will stay largely in the present and not reminisce about 1959, or the 1919 Black Sox scandal, but, as the Fox announcer Joe Buck suggested, the network could still make use of the cast of Eight Men Out."

That's right, cue John Cusack. :rolleyes:

Maybe he'd stop hitting up Reinsdorf for free tickets if he got them from Fox. :cool:
