What do people think of Joe Buck and Tim McCarver? Most Giants fans I know hate them both... Maybe that could be a cause for low ratings?

Somehow, I doubt that Minnesota or Atlanta in the World Series would have improved ratings...

Thanks for the info Huge Bean.

I figured ratings were low, but I didn't know they were that low. I guess last year's series had pretty crappy ratings too, but last year's series was the most exciting one in years, IMHO.

Since the game comes on today at 7:30 PM ET and is the last game of the series, maybe it'll get decent ratings. Maybe. I have a feeling people are going to be tuning into Sunday Night Football and "Alias", though, so this game probably won't get great ratings, either.

(Edited to say: maybe not "Alias" so much since I'm not sure that "Alias" gets great ratings either...)

Joe Buck is great. I think he handles the improbable and ignorant McCarver beautifully sometimes.

Joe's a great announcer though, I have a lot of respect for him, especially after such a tough year.

Did any of you guys catch Joe Buck on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno"? That guy has absolutely no sense of humor.

Go Giants!

I'm hoping that SF has the bullpen warming up in the first inning just to be safe.

Holy carp!

Is is just me, or does Melissa Ethridge look like she could unhinge her jaw and begin eating bystanders any moment?

Yeah ... even if her voice sounds like a chainsaw, at least she sang it right and did her best.

Lest I be judged for not showing up after the ribbing I gave Blake, I'm letting you know now that I might not be around tonight. Depends how my homework goes.
