Nicely Done

The Cardinals beat the Cubs 10 - 3 in 2:35 to take the series 2 games to 1. The Redbirds starting pitcher, Jake Westbrook, was spectacular. He went 7 innings allowing 4 hits, 1 earned run, 1 walk, and 2 strikeouts.
Nicely done Jake.
We had a very, very nice clean telecast. The crew was on top of their game. The camera operators captured the "moments", the audio was crisp and the tape room excelled.
But I believe the highest quality of work came from our graphics department. Keith and Danny were exceptional at the right moments. They offered concise and interesting notes throughout the telecast.
The best TV sports production teams are the ones that are able to adjust to the game action. Too many of these TV "teams" are stuck in their ways and air crap (graphics and video packages that have nothing to do with the game action) because they built them in pre-production and "damn it" they are going to make air.
Graphics may be the single most important tool for the TV team as they adjust to the game.
Keith and Danny nailed it today.
Nicely done!
