    Only if they play for a team I despise.

    You "despise" the White Sox?

    Do you heckle cripples?

    How can anybody have any strong feelings about anybody in the AL Central? Talk about the bland leading the bland.

    Looks like it’ll end up being the highest rated regular season game since 2005.

    As a local TownBall account posted on twitter, "The printed vinyl wrap hay bales really brought me back to my Iowa childhood."

    I think that definitely played a part of it for me.

    As likely the only Sox fan on the board, I'll just say I felt a wide range of emotions during the 9th. Agree the high degree of melodrama made the broadcast insufferable at times but personally I'll take Joe Buck over Jim Nantz every day and twice on Sunday.

    And the Cubs still suck.
    There are two of us =)

    I didn't see it so I have no comment.

    Glad to see the brand holding up, tho.

    And here's why that surprised even me.

    I love kitsch. Target field is full of it and it's great.

    this game has been insufferably corporatized awful. I couldn't get into it. Part of the problem was Joe Buck. You need to get the oldest, best story teller on the radio to do this game. Cut the crowds by 80%. Get rid of all the boom boom gotta keep the kids attention nonsense.


    Actually, you know what would make this literally perfect? Do it every year, but no TV. You gotta go to see it.

    Everything I've seen from this game has been awful. Especially the fireworks at the end.

    MLB and Fox couldn’t have scripted a better game than that. Yankees score four in the 9th to take an 8-7 lead before Tim Anderson walks it off with a two run bomb and circled the bases with a backdrop of cornfields and fireworks.
