Fox s__ks! Last night Commentary rooted against my second favorite team - the Yankees - cause I thought the TV schedulers would give the Astros more prime time exposure without the Yankees in the American League Championship Series. Nope. Instead, the Angels-White Sox series gets all of their games on prime time. The Astros-Cards play day games on Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday, if necessary. I guess it's the ratings, stupid. The LA -Chicago markets are a bit bigger than St.Louis-Houston.
Well, Saturday is OK, that evening, Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas has their annual black tie gala - a real cool event that Commentary regularly attends. Planned Parenthood is the best non-profit in America period.
The Astros are the top baseball story in America this morning. Too bad Fox/Major League Baseball are not putting out the best product on prime time.
Speaking of prime time, next Sunday evening, the Houston Texans are playing against Seattle. The game is on ESPN. However, since it's on cable, Channel 2 (the local NBC affiliate) will also cover the game - which means that "The West Wing" will be preempted. Nothing against the Texans, but at 0 and 4 and going nowhere, is that really necessary? Gotta find out if Channel 2 plans to air "The West Wing" at a later time.
