I heard on the radio today that the audience for the World Series was very low this year (11 points off from last year according to Nielsen). I don’t know why the excitement has waned for me, but it certainly has. Maybe it’s because of the fact that the Braves aren’t the perennial powerhouse they once were. Or maybe it’s because College Football is so engaging and exciting that baseball seems that much slower and boring. Whatever it is…this year, for the first time I can remember, I didn’t even know that the World Series was on. And when I did, I didn’t really care.
The other thing is that it’s the Phillys and the Rays. Who cares about those guys?
