World Series to Accomodate Obama

As reported this morning in the Hollywood Reporter:
"To accommodate a half-hour Obama time buy on Fox on Oct. 29, Major League Baseball has agreed to move the start time of World Series Game 6 by about 15 minutes. That would move the start of the game from 8:20 p.m. ET or so to 8:35 p.m.

'Fox will accommodate Senator Obama's desire to communicate with voters in this longform format,' Fox Sports said in a statement. 'We are pleased that Major League Baseball has agreed to delay the first pitch of World Series Game 6 for a few minutes in order for Fox to carry his program on Oct. 29. If requested, the network would be willing to make similar time available to Senator McCain's campaign.'"
Classy move, baseball. Way to accomodate President Obama, which I have decided to take to calling him.

Not that I'm predicting a win or anything. It's just this cute nickname I have for him. We're friends.
