RAIN DELAY

WE'RE IN A RAIN DELAY in St. Louis, so instead of seeing baseball on FOX, we're getting fun rain-delay programming. Right now it's another repeat of The War at Home. Rats.

Actually, rain delays can be pretty good. This is what baseball is all about- you sit back and watch rain-delay programming like This Week in Baseball, or last year's World Series highlights, and other stuff from the vault. Or they would have the announcers fill time with banter, and on the radio they'd have the talk show host come in and take phone calls until the rain delay is over. But this is network, so instead these fools show sitcom rerun programming with a blurb at the bottom of the screen that says "World Series Game 4 - Tigers vs Cardinals is in a Rain Delay. Please Stay Tuned for Updates."

Well, we'll get baseball later. Actually, I'm surprised they're showing The War at Home, you would have thought they would have shown House again. Like they normally do.

Joe Buck is back on saying the rain delay is still on, but don't worry, there's going to be a game soon. And in the meantime, here we go again with a second repeat in a row of The War at Home. FOX is really getting killed tonight.
