America's Pastime Is Past Its Prime Time

It's the World Series for crying out loud. Baseball's ultimate event. The (Tampa) Bay Rays are there for the first time. So let's check the Dallas Morning News SportsDay for coverage. Pagone is the beginning of two stories on the Dallas Cowboys and another on Texas high school football. Page 2 is briefs and boxers on the NBA with an article on the Mavericks exhibition game. Yes, exhibition game. Page 3 is all Cowboys except for a small ad titled, "Great Sex Forever." Page 4 is NFL/golf/motor sports. Page 5 is college football and women's college basketball. Yes, women's college basketball. Page 6 is Rangers baseball, a big ad for whiskey and, wait, there it is, a full half-page article on Game 1 of the Big Show. Complete with the box score and scheduled games.

The Rodney Dangerfield of sports can't even decide when to throw the first pitch. Some games begin at 7:29 while others begin at 7:35. Perhaps it depends on if Wheel of Fortune goes into overtime.
