    Yeah I’m a little surprised football bet the World Series. But witht he cool weather I think football not baseball.
    I like having reruns I miss Chicago Fire on Wednesdays so I get it Saturdays.

    I have to admit that I didn’t realize that the World Series wouldn’t be very popular. It just shows how amazing a job the NFL has done to build up its fan base.
