One Of Those Days
The Pirates beat the Cardinals 4 - 3 in 2:38 today in Pitssburgh. Don't get me wrong, I love what I do for a living. Who in their right mind wouldn't want to watch St. Louis Cardinals baseball for a living? Yes, there is more to it than that but today was one of those days where I just couldn't get completely into it. This happens to every TV baseball producer and director in the business. If a producer or director denies this charge then he or she is lying. This was one of those days for me. Don't get me wrong, I still cut the game to the best of my ability but for whatever reason, the passion wasn't there. The St. Louis Cardinals viewers in St. Louis were not cheated in any way from the coverage of the game. It is just that my passion for the game of baseball wasn't at it's ideal peak during the telecast. I didn't miss anything during the game/telecast and the viewer wasn't cheated. It was just one of those days.
