Your Saturday Baseball Open Thread


On Saturday mornings like this one not too long ago, I was watching cartoons. Muppet babies, and Pee Wee Herman, and Gummy Bears, and I forget the other ones I was really into. It was a star-studded lineup. Saturday was also the day for WWF to put on their wrestling for the week – and I never missed it.

Now, I sit around like a mope waiting for the lineups to come out. Saturday is the best day of the week to watch baseball, unless the game you want to see for the week isn’t televised on FOX at 7:00. Or unless your wife has her mind set on going on a date and actually doing something with the best day of the week. That’s how I know I’m getting old: I’m content just to watch a game during primetime on Saturday evening.

The only thing missing is This Week in Baseball and that little claymation Mel Allen who hosted the show after the real Mel passed.

You listen to that, and suddenly it takes you back in time doesn’t it? Enjoy your Saturday everyone!
