The World Series and Obama's Speech

I don't know how many of you are baseball fans, but doubtless even those of you who are not baseball fans know that the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays are facing off. Right now, the series is 3-1 in favor of the Philadelphia Phillies. They tried to play the game last night in a monsoon and finally called it off after the Tampa Bay Rays tied the game (2-2) in the top of the 6th inning. The game was supposed to be a go from the top of the sixth this evening. But the weather has not cooperated. It has been rescheduled for tomorrow evening, immediately following Barack Obama's half-hour speech.

Now, if the Phillies come out on top during the next three innings, they will win the World Series for 2008. I suspect that an investment of time in three innings that will decide the year's top team probably is of great interest to many Americans.

The universe has conspired to put those three innings immediately after Obama's speech. I can't imagine that the numbers in his audience are going to suffer any as the result of this accident.
