R.I.P. ‘Back in the Game’

bitg1Goodbye to the TV show, Back in the Game. We hardly knew you. That fact, however, is no fault of our own. The higher ups at the flailing American Broadcasting Company made the decision to cancel this great show after airing only ten episodes. As of this time, there are no plans to air the remaining three. Really? Why not just let the show runs it’s course with all thirteen episodes shown, and make a decision from there. If the genius’ that brought us Three’s Company and Mork & Mindy were still running things at ABC, I’m sure Back in the Game would have been picked up for at least another season. For those who have yet to enjoy this show, it’s about a single mom who moves back in with her dad (a former professional baseball player), and coaches her son’s Little League team. After playing baseball and softball all her life, she makes a great coach, and a better mother. I have to admit, though, it’s easy to become smitten by Maggie Lawson‘s character, Terry, Jr. She’s seriously cute, and her character is simply a great person. James Caan plays Terry’s dad, The Cannon, and steals the scenes when he’s on like Ricky Henderson taking second base. It’s a great show about family, with baseball as the backdrop. Although compared to the Bad News Bears, the Angles (miss-spelled from Angels) are a unique bunch. This weeks episode even featured our own former Fox Sports Detroit Girl, Allison as a guest star. If you haven’t had a chance to see the show yet, you can check it out on ABC.com or Hulu-Plus. If you like what you see, please sign the petition to save this show HERE.

Farewell to Allison

Allison2

Yesterday was Allison’s last official day as a Fox Sports Detroit Girl. She’s out in California now, and no doubt she will be successful in everything she does. We here a M.I.B. wanted to say ‘thank you’, and wish her all the best. She and Lauren have done a great job representing Detroit sports and the state of Michigan. Allison was also one of the few Fox Sport girls chosen to attend last year’s MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City. She’s already had an un-credited cameo in Iron Man 2, and rumor mill has it she’s dating Captain America himself, Chris Evans. As a Marvel fan when I was a kid, I think this is pretty awesome. I believe that she had a hand in choosing her successor, though her and Lauren set some pretty high standards. All the best, Allison!

Observing Baseball

I grew up a Yankee fan, I favor Pitchers whenever possible, I am a stathead, and my dream job is to be a GM for an MLB franchise. In the summer, I go to MLB games and catch baseballs. In the winter, I write about what teams are doing to get better or worse. I try to be positive and unbiased in my writing, but that isn't always possible when evaluating teams truthfully.
