Hey ESPN! Where Are The Indians Game Highlights?
As I hope you know, yesterday the Cleveland Indians moved on to the 2016 World Series by eliminating the Toronto Blue Jays four games to one. Kind of a big deal, a big sports story.
So at 9 this morning I turned on ESPN's SportsCenter to see some game highlights and coverage of the Tribe's ALCS victory. The 9:00 a.m. live edition of SportsCenter is (or used to be) the official start-of-the-day telecast for ESPN, and the Indians had to be the lead story.
Or not. ESPN opened with highlights of the Cubs win over the Dodgers to even the NLCS at 2 games each. Next was a discussion of what's wrong with Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers, followed a piece on a New York Giants wife-beating asshole. Then a segment on Alabama football. Jeez!
What's going on? Did ESPN change the rules and forget to tell me? I switched the channel to the MLB Network. Better. All baseball, all the time. Shoulda started there in the first place.
Go Tribe! Party at Napoli's!
