I find judicious use of the mute button improves my World Series viewing experience considerably.
If someone asked me Friday if I’d seen the game the previous night, I would have given them an earful: Yeah, I saw the game - some of it anyway, when Fox Sports wasn’t apparently bored with other things and actually covered it.
The rest of the time, I saw Sergio Romo being interviewed in the dugout for several minutes in the middle of the game, and I saw more sides of Detroit Tiger Prince Fielder than the guy’s proctologist, thanks to unending replays of that critical second-inning home plate tag by Buster Posey. Is there some rule that every one of the 40 Fox Sports cameras set up around AT&T Park has to be represented in an eternal postmortem? I got it, guys - really: Fielder was out. Even if I were a Tigers fan, I could see it. I saw it in the first replay, it was confirmed in the second, it was getting a little old by the third, and by the fourth ... well I won’t quote the actual words I was shouting at the TV screen, but suffice it to say they were all monosyllabic.
