In addition, ratings for baseball on FOX have either declined or remained flat in ten consecutive seasons.
Somebody posts this in every such thread, I know. It's just that MLB is swimming in money and publicity, and worrying about how many people are watching big manual scoreboards fed by telegraph in Herald Square is not really relevant.
I wonder how the NFL non-local games do relative to the MLB GotW.
I was in the Luxor sports book Sunday night. They did not even have the Yanks-Orioles game on anywhere in the book (or casino) until midway through. Playoff baseball, not showing in the sports book.
Here's the baseball wasteland I live in. Every Sunday, we go to a sports bar on the beach. It's where everyone goes to watch football on Sundays. I'm not a huge football fan, and neither is my wife, but we have a great time. It's on the beach, they have a pool, sometimes we go by boat, we see and hang with friends drink beer, eat wings...It's a great time. Anyhoo, they have 9 TV's. Last Sunday there were only six 1:00 games. TV #7 had a repeat of the Steelers-Eagles game. TV#8 had NASCAR. TV#9 had an infomercial. Last year during the playoffs, when I asked the manager if he could shift from NASCAR to the ALCS, he scoffed at me. On Sunday, I asked him if he could put the baseball game on instead of the infomercial. He sighed and said "I'll see what I can do." The channel was never changed.
10 - I've had similar experiences, but feel it has more to do with the bartender being too lazy to want to go find a remote and then find the channel. It got to the point where I was enough of a repeat customer that I was entrusted the remote to find whatever I wanted. I've also noticed that gender has been a factor in whether a game is on. The vast majority of college-age girls who get employed by bars do not know when and what channel the games are on, and thus just leave it at ESPN.
Where is this god forsaken land?
I would have ####### talked to the owner at that point, and even if it did no good, tell him I would be pointing out the shittiness of his staff wherever I could online. Yes, I can be petty.
It must have other attributes, Duck. I wouldn't go back. Too many other fine things to do where you live and I mix a decent enough drink on my own.
