America's Past (bed) Time

Sorry it took so long to add more comments. I've been up late watching World Series games. Seriously, what were the baseball people thinking starting games at 8:30 at night? Who but a few die-hard baseball fans and people in the competing cities are up watching that late. Game 3, which went 12 innings, didn't get over until 1:30 a.m. Deciding Game 4 didn't end until 12:30 a.m., and that was for a game where both teams scored a total of one run. We understand they want to get the most prime-time advertising revenue. But they'll make more money in the long run by building their fan base. And the best way to do that is to show the championship games when kids -- or for that matter, adults -- can actually stay awake to watch them.
