If I told you one of TBS' studio crew farted live on the air, then proudly admitted it to his viewing audience, would it have taken you long to guess which one?
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and the blogosphere to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
We know: You thought the end of the postseason on TBS meant that the promotional blitz for "Frank TV" had ended. You figured, jeez, we can just hope we remember whenever that show was supposed to start. (Sometime in November. We think.) But nope! They're just getting warmed up!
It's a sad day, folks: This is the end of our Frank TV advertisements. The NLCS ended too quickly; we felt like we were just getting to know young Frank Caliendo.
All told, we've been pretty impressed with TBS's playoffs coverage so far. Cal Ripken is shockingly candid, that lead-from-first graphic is kind of neat and they're generally restrained about matters. (Other than Dick Stockton's hair, that is.)
In about two-and-a-half hours, the 2007 Major League Baseball postseason will begin. As you know, all games will be on TBS, which is why we have strange start times like 3 p.m. ET and 6:30 p.m. ET. We thought this would be a problem. But TBS is off to a good start.
