real issues, like a presidency run amok, a quagmire in the middle east or somewhere around a million Iraqi's dead today because of their monkey and on and on. ball players, good luck is all I can say

1. I'm afraid you're right. The coverage will be obsessive and
relentless, and will suck the air right out of the airwaves right through Chrismas & New Year's.

4. ESPN covered it all night, and even Keith made it THE major story
though I certainly don't think they should be naming names without evidence they wouldn't want to take into court.

7. Some good may come of this.
I'm sure that they will make the point that they shouldn't be put at the front of the line for lying to Congress. There's been plenty of that going on in the last year or so. Hell, they're only baseball players. Nobody died.
