An Insomniac Thought at 2AM
I loved the first day of the MLB Network. I watched that '56 World Series game twice. However, since then I have watched about a half hour of Hot Stove and flipped away all other times. Is anyone else as repelled by the 2008 World Series Replay as I am? Is it because I just watched the thing live a couple of months ago? Is it because I don't have a dog in that hunt? Is it because of Buck & McCarver? Is it because I was so floored by that old kinetoscope with Mel Allen and Vin Scully announcing that I'm spoiled? More programming is going to pop up this week, so there will be something cool to watch, but am I alone in the desire to see more old games at least 10-15 years old? I don't care if they're even a historic game... I'd love to see a normal regular season game of the Orioles and the A's from 1971 or the Phillies and Reds from 1983. Hell, I'll even take Expos vs. Pirates from 1997. Who else wants more old games? Or at bare minimum a This Week In Baseball Marathon? How bout that?
