Re: The Fall of National Review

Right on, Jack.  Watching baseball on TV is a horribly over-mediated experience.  A pitch isn’t a strike until there’s a sort of crime scene recreation with the juiced ball’s offending trajectory analyzed with phosphor traces, strike zone grids, sound effects, and whatnot.  One announcer prosecutes the umpire, the other steps in to defend him, while a third declares the whole series a travesty of justice.  Then there’s the second pitch of the five hour game…

I say a pox on the whole thing and call upon the History Channel to start broadcasting unadulterated games.
