A MLB representative issued this statement:
“We’ve determined that a playoff series between the White Sox and Astros is not in the best interests of baseball. We have declared a “do over” and everyone will once again vie for the championship beginning on Monday. In addition, we will be adding Pedro Martinez to the Red Sox, and Roger Clemens and Andy Petitte to the Yankees.”Insiders say that poor attendance records are the main reason for MLB making this unprecedented move. The Astros and White Sox had the worst numbers among those teams eligible for the playoffs. The White Sox in particular stood out, ranking in the bottom half of the league for attendance despite having the best record for most of the season. This compounded by a roster full of players no one could distinguish from a kid on a milk carton had MLB executives wanting to change their sox, and pull off the biggest baseball scandal since 1919.
If the World Series went as scheduled, ratings in the major markets of New York and Los Angeles were expected to be totally nonexistent.
A scientific poll of males 18-34 in NYC revealed that 0% of that prized demographic was actually planning to watch the World Series.
38% of them were planning to spend that time watching Laguna Beach with their girlfriend.
21% planned to catch up on the latest gossip on Gawker and Blogebrity with their girlfriend.
16% said they would masturbate like they normally do from 8pm to 11pm
10% said they were going to get drunk and commit hate crimes against blacks and jews.
8% said they would freshen up on the growing archive of hotness at The Assimilated Negro.
4% said they were going to kick someone’s ass just cause it would be an old-school New York thing to do.
2% said they plan to kick their parent’s ass because they were raised in a perfect family and now lack passion in their lives.
1% said they planned to give AIDS a try.
One guy who thinks too much said he’ll be damned if he’s just another statistic.
One paraplegic deaf mute signed that he knew he was also capable of genius because TAN told him so.
Indeed I did, indeed I did
