Glenn Younes: A Changing Time
It’s funny how important time is, the real thing we can’t get enough of. We all share in that feeling don’t we, that we don’t have enough time?
Sharing tasks with another is a necessity called multitasking and it’s essential.
But it’s an impossibility in major pro sports. It’s hard to share when you’re trying to hoard billions. It’s what the NFL & MLB are doing and it’s why Thursday Sept 5th, in the 7pm eastern hour, is such a coveted piece of time.
Orioles’ game 130 something vs the Ravens’ prime time, national television first game of the regular season following a Super Bowl, celebration!
Seems about the same level of entertainment. I’ll hashtag #sarcasm so you understand the joke. It’s a joke to think MLB can try to compete with the NFL. Certainly not in Baltimore where the Orioles are rebuilding things. Sports are about entertainment and as much as I love what the O’s are working towards, the Ravens are the ticket and with a new Super Bowl win I think they need to be taken care of.
It’s not a radical request. The big dog gets what they what. It’s how things work. Right now the Ravens are in charge. It’s their town and that’s that. Move the Orioles / White Sox game to noon that Thursday or a weekend double header pending Chicago, MLB and MLBPA approval, cash the check the Ravens have offered and everybody will be happy enough.
Money can fix a lot but it can never buy more time, just a nicer watch.
