New York Congressman Anthony Weiner is the latest to call ESPN out for moving the Yankees-Red Sox game on September 27th from the afternoon until 8 o’clock that night. (ed: and it worked)
What’s the problem? Well, the night of September 27th is also Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish Calendar. It’s not like New York and Boston have huge Jewish populations, though. Oh wait, yes it is. And to prove he’s not a homer, Weiner points out that Kevin Youkilis won’t be able to play if the game starts after sundown.
(UPDATE: ESPN HAS AGREED TO MOVE THE GAME BACK TO 1PM, PERFORMING A TRUE MITZVAH FOR ALL BASEBALL FANS)
I’m going to bring this up during our tri-monthly meeting in which we discuss how we run the banks and the world’s money and Hollywood.
