just for shteins sake the 37.0 rating = around 2.5-3.0 million people. its a broad estimate, but there are 3 million tv households in philly....times that by the 2.5 person per household us average you get the 2.5 number.

of course every bar was jammed up, so maybe knock it closer to 3 mil. a game 7 against the yanks can easily pull in a 60 or 70 rating. but no, fox wants the dodgers. i believe that between 1.0 and 1.5 mil watch the game in LA. and LA has a tv audience two times the size of philly.

Pythagorean puns rule...

An Indian chief had three wives, each of whom was pregnant.  The first
gave birth to a boy.  The chief was so elated he built her a teepee made
of deer hide.  A few days later, the second gave birth, also to a boy.
The chief was very happy.  He built her a teepee made of antelope hide.
The third wife gave birth a few days later, but the chief kept the
details a secret.  He built this one a two story teepee, made out of a
hippopotamus hide.  The chief then challenged the tribe to guess what
had occurred.  Many tried, unsuccessfully. Finally, one young brave
declared that the third wife had given birth to twin boys.  "Correct,"
said the chief.  "How did you figure it out?" The warrior answered,
"It's elementary.  The value of the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal
to the sons of the squaws of the other two hides."

I think someone mentioned on here before, but the ESPN 30 for 30 shows are pretty damn good.

I don't know how many have been aired so far, but I recorded the one about the Baltimore Colts marching band and the USFL. Mike Tollin, from PHL, made the USFL one.

Sean Salisbury sues Deadspin
Posted by Mike Florio on October 24, 2009 11:35 PM ET
Last month, Sean Salisbury vowed to sue Deadpin for its history of reports regarding the man better known for his time at ESPN than for his blink-and-you-might-have-missed it tenure as an actual on-field NFL quarterback.

And now Salisbury has made good on this threat and/or promise.

The claim is for defamation, and Salisbury alleges that Deadspin has engaged in a "long-running smear campaign against him."  The factual focal point of the lawsuit -- and likely the only one that will survive the applicable statute of limitations -- is the recent claim from Deadpin that Salisbury was fired by a Dallas radio station for "sexting."  Salisbury has denied the allegation, and a report from at least one other media outlet has undermined the "sexting" claim.

"What we hope to prove is that blog sites like Deadspin are accountable," said Salisbury attorney Todd Harlow, according to the McKinney (Tex.) Courier-Gazette.  "They can't simply attack someone and make a concerted effort to destroy the lives and careers of people without any ramifications.  The difference between other news outlets and Deadspin is at least the other news outlets try to get it right.  We hope to make a statement that if sites are going to behave like this, there are consequences and they are long overdue for that."

But, as Roger Clemens previously learned to his undoubted dismay, the pursuit of a defamation case involves opening a heavy door that can swing back around and strike the plaintiff square in the ass.  Such cases arise from alleged damage to the plaintiff's reputation.  In order to assess the damage properly, the defendant has the right to poke around every closet in the house in search of bones.

Thus, the best pre-suit advice that the plaintiff's counsel can provide is this:  "Think of the most embarrassing thing about yourself, the one thing that you would not want anyone to know.  And then assume that if you file this lawsuit it will be known by anyone and everyone."

It's unknown whether Salisbury received such advice, or if so whether he heeded it.  But it's safe to say that Deadspin will use the legal process to search for as many embarrassing things as it can find regarding Salisbury -- and that at some point any and all skeletons Deadspin finds will be displayed like Halloween decorations at the headquarters of Gawker Media.

Did Griese just jump into hot water?
Posted by John Taylor on October 24, 2009 1:12 PM ET
So, I'm sitting here watching the Ohio State-Minnesota game, with the Buckeyes leading the Gophers 7-0 in the second quarter.

As ESPN comes back from one of their myriad commercial breaks, they did a promo for tomorrow's NASCAR race by showing the top five drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup.  What ensues is... well... I don't know.

You be the judge:

"Where's Juan Pablo Montoya?" asks Chris Spielman incredulously about the Colombian-born driver who is just out of the top five in the standings.

"He's out having a taco," Bob Griese answered.

The best pre-game show out there, FOX, has officially jumped the shark.

Michael Strahan is presenting a car to some woman who they gave it away to in a contest. He's going all car salesman on a Sunday morning pre-game show.

Ugh.
