    Since the World Series will be over by Sun.. I hope its a sweep, since although not a big baseball fan, I could tell that the Rockies will not win a game if it goes back to Fenway... Then by wed or thurs EEI could talk about what really matters and what the biggest sporting event will be until late jan early feb... PATS VS COLTS....:rocker:

    It is the World Series after all, but I hear ya.

    They'll probably be into wall-to-wall hot stove talk on EEI by November 1.

    I can't wait! When do pitchers and catchers report?

    Chill out, it is the WORLD SERIES...tune into patriots.com for crying out loud. The main focus should be on the CHAMPIONSHIP afterall....go figure. But they've still done a bit of football talk too...more then I would have thought. IT's all good.

    Some of guy's are classic. Boston is a HUGE baseball town. Baseball was king until the pats started winning sb's. They are about even now I guess. To question baseball coverage in Boston when the sox are playing in the world series at Fenway is so dumb it's comical.

    IMO its a little silly to complain that a local media outlet is covering a championship team. Even if you aren't a baseball fan you have to understand that a championship is more important than the regular season. Pats SB SHOULD take precidence over C's regular season and so forth.

    Hockey was king until the Celtics started winning championships. Then the Celtics were king until Bird retired. Then the Red Sox got popular. Yes, baseball was always the #2 sport in Boston, but it wasn't until the past 5 years or so that its vaulted to a #1 of hysterical proportions. The big three, for the longest time, were the Bruins, Sox, and Celtics, in varying orders. Then the Patriots bumped the Bruins and Celtics out, and now you have the Celtics slinking back in. The Sox are the one constant, but baseball is horrifically boring, and while many were excited in 2004 now its just ho-hum. I'd rather see the Cubs win, to be honest. Many older Bostonians grew up Braves fans, and don't have the childhood connection to the Red Sox, too.

    There's one key element to Pats vs. Sox popularity that a lot of people fail to take note of: Many women embrace baseball because they understand it and shy away from football for the opposite reason. I hear this time and time again from women, "I'd like to get into football but I don't understand what's going on. It just looks like a bunch of players running into each other, falling down, getting up and doing it again."

    If more women understood football -- which is a more inherently exciting, colorful, emotional and action-packed sport -- I'd bet they'd choose football over baseball. The NFL, the Patriots organization and fans like us can and should do a better job of educating women about football. The best female football fans are those who grew up watching the game with fathers and brothers took the time to explain what's going on.

    I think this is true. Also of note is the generational difference. For the most part, Red Sox fans (and Patriots fans, now) tend to come from younger generations, while the Celtics and Bruins are really only embraced by those who remember them in their glory days of the 60s-80s (or those with a connection to the games of hockey/basketball). Before the Patriots' success in the new millenium, most of our team's fans were those who remembered the days of Grogan, or even further back, the AFL days. The Red Sox often played second, or even third or fourth fiddle for these people, and many of the even older generations grew up Boston Braves fans and only reluctantly embraced the Red Sox after the Braves left not just Boston, but also Milwaukee.

    But that was quite an impressive last-minute comeback by Matt Ryan.

    Are folks so mentally impaired that they can't maintain a conversation about more than one sport at a time? There's lots of exciting stuff happening in Boston these days. It's all worth talking about.

    I hear that even the local pro football team is doing well.

    I think you would also have to include uniforms into the equation (women in this forum excluded). Football has the padding and more importantly, the helmet. Could you imagine Tom Brady batting in the Sox lineup?

    i feel your pain. IMO baseball ranks right up there with watching grass grow or paint dry. If i ever want to take a nap, I turn on a baseball game.

    But you cant fault WEEI for sucking up to the legions of sox fans, it is thier revenue base. I'm curious to listen to brady, bruschi, wilfork and harrison on monday when they're sure to be flying below the local media radar at 8-0. My guess would be that they're perfectly happy to play second fiddle to the sox at this point in the season, just like '04.

    I swear people will always find something to complain about. Why not be happy for the city of Boston and New England in general for having a team in the World Series? That too difficult?

    Excellent point and I was thinking that last night. When they did they that 8th inning "sweet caroline", I wanted to barf. You see all the pink hats and more females in attendance. As fans, baseball has been feminized. I would be embarrassed as a guy with that song and doing that little clap during their chant.

    Certainly not the baseball type crowd that I grew up with.

    This is not a put down, just opinions based on what I saw.

    I know right. Half these fans think championships grow on tree's. Wait until the pats stink again. It will happen some day.

    Well this woman understands Football, Baseball and Basketball. I take exception to that comment. :snob:
    This isn't about baseball coverage. This IS ABOUT FOOTBALL SEASON. I'm done with baseball. As far as I'm concerned the Sox took to long to finish off Cleveland. They are up 2-0 over who? Oh yeah the Rockies. Please, I could see sweep in the name alone.:rolleyes: They have their foot on their knecks, NOW BREAK THEM AND LEAVE NO HOPE. They have no excuse for losing even one game to that team, IMHO. There is NO DOUBT in my mind who the 2007 World Series Champion is. It's only a matter of time. :rocker:

    It was a great comeback, but Meterparel is insufferable when it comes to Eagles talk. He is completely negative for all things Pats or Sox but when it comes to Eagles, has nothing but phony homerisms. Fortunately, he wasn't in today.

    That "Sweet Caroline" thing is fundamentally symptomatic of the very strong female element in baseball. Can you imagine that and the little clap thingy, or anything like it, going on at a Pats game? Without the women at Fenway, those things just don't happen.

    That being said, I personally would LOVE to see more women getting into football and have it be less segregated, and we guys only have ourselves to blame for that not happening. One aspect of that is men using football Sunday as a reason to get away from the family/wife/girlfriend for "guy time" for a day. That's understandable to a degree, but I think we have more to lose than to gain by not encouraging them to share the passion of this sport along with us.

    I wish women like you were the rule and not the exception.

    I gotta be honest, I think more women watch football than baseball. Well, let me rephrase that and say I think more people watch football than baseball, and both are for the same reason. Football is a more exciting game to watch and only has 1/10th the amount of regular season games.

    It's the WORLD SERIES, I'm pretty sure "baseball season" still counts. You people whine so much about the Red Sox. You don't like baseball. We get it. You can't follow BOTH? You can't acknowledge that, like it or not, it's pretty awesome that the Red Sox are in the World Series???
