  • Fox TV ends playoff coverage

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Fox Sports announced Tuesday that it had decided not to telecast the American and National League championship series, citing lack of national interest.

    "Once the Yankees got beat, that was it for us," said Fox Sports President Peter Griffin. "We told Major League Baseball from the start, if neither New York or Boston is in it, we're not showing it."

    Fox sold the rights of the game to the Food Network, which will show the games at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning, right after the late Julia Child's class on chicken choking.

    Instead of this year's games, Fox will re-broadcast last year's American League Championship Series between the Yankees and the Red Sox.

    Griffin said fans of St. Louis, Houston, Chicago and Anaheim will probably protest, "but our decision is final. The other night, when the Cardinals game against the Padres started at 10 a.m. central time, ESPN proved you can screw over the fans and get away with it."

    MLB Chairman Bud Selig could not be reached for comment. An aide said he was meeting with Yankee and Red Sox executives on what steps could be taken to get those teams back into the World Series.

                      I posted it at Orange WhoopAss. Somebody said, "Is this what we get for making it to the NLCS?" I wrote back, Just think of all the surprises that await you should you finally make the World Series.

                      They banned me again. Good. Those people don't understand cutting-edge Internet comedy.

                      Biggest bunch of weenies ever.
