The NFL and Major League Baseball have had a gentlemen's agreement over the years that, during World Series Week, the NFL would not schedule a Sunday Night Game. This year, the NFL not only scheduled one, but it was a pretty enticing matchup -- New Orleans and Pittsburgh, the past two Super Bowl champions.
Personally, I don't have a problem with it; I've always been a football first, baseball second, followed by basketball and hockey type of guy. It is interesting though. I'm sure Bud Selig isn't thrilled about it, especially since Texas-San Francisco isn't exactly a marquee matchup for the World Series (not that the NFL could predict that in April when they put the schedule together).
Of course, this is Bud Selig we're talking about, the commissioner who does everything wrong. He'll get hgis revenge. Next year he'll probably schedule exhibition baseball games the night of the Super Bowl. That'll bring the NFL to its knees!
