The Drama Jocks’ SportsCast #51: A Giant Lack of Focus

The World Series is happening right now, and while both Josh and I can find it compelling for a variety of reasons, the truth of the matter is: it will probably go down as the lowest-TV-rated Series ever.  By the time the calendar turns to November (as it will, before the “October Classic” is concluded), our national focus has, without a doubt, shifted to the NFL.

… Wait, the NBA tipped off their season, too?  How ’bout that.

Back to baseball, though, a little commentary before we commence: why the lack of interest?  Is it the plethora of viewing options that modern cable and satellite systems have to offer?  The dwindling public interest in our national pasttime?  Does the season drag on too long, and we simply can’t be expected to pay attention for 8 full months of the year?  It’s probably a combination of these things, but all indications are, the fans in San Francisco and Texas are both loving it.  And good for them.  Neither state has an NFL team that’s worth a damn at this point.

Which brings us back to the picks!  Enjoy them, as always, and here’s hoping you are riveted by a show that lasts an hour-and-a-quarter this week…
