Today's game between the Pirates and Cardinals at Busch Stadium lasted 3:27 and was won by the Bucs 10 - 5. This was 3 hours and 27 minutes of bad baseball. This was 3 hours and 27 minutes of good television. There were many cries of dismay from the TV crew during this game. There were many positive comments from the TV crew as we captured the "Mother's Day" theme of our telecast. The soundbites about "mom" from players and coaches alike worked well and live shots of mothers in the crowd were nice. A bad game but a good telecast. Sometimes it works out that way. Not often, but today it did.
