GameChat – Phillies @ Giants NLCS #5, FOX, 6:30

Interesting how both leagues Championship Series went to 3-1?  Last night’s game was very interesting but.. very long.  In fact, BOTH games yesterday were torturously long for 9 inning games.  NOW, I know why MLB has been trying to institute measures to “speed up games”.  Too bad they aren’t enforcing them on a) teams that are actually causing the problems and b) TV networks that drag out games with additional commercial breaks.  That definitely is going to drive away viewers, not draw them which I am pretty sure is the general point of television broadcasts.

I hope tonight doesn’t keep me up later than the laundry I have to do…  Of course, given the piles of laundry, let’s hope I am done with that before the World Series starts.

And the NLCS goes to game 6 as well… seems like they don’t want to let the other league out-do them.
