Buried in this AP story about Game 5’s postponement and bad weather:
More rain and possible snow showers were expected Tuesday, so commissioner Bud Selig said Game 5 was tentatively set to resume at 8:37 p.m. Wednesday night — after Democratic president candidate Barack Obama’s 30-minute ad on Fox and other networks. Major League Baseball and Fox agreed two weeks ago to push back Wednesday’s first pitch — originally for Game 6 — by about 10 minutes.
“No one will delay a World Series game with an infomercial when I’m president,” Republican candidate John McCain said to loud applause at a Tuesday rally in Pennsylvania.
Certainly, Democrats and Republicans can both agree: Game 5 2/3 of the World Series is far more important than the upcoming election. Though, isn’t the latter getting better ratings?
