World Series Game 1… can the Backstreet Boys save the ratings?

Over the past 24 hours, tonight’s Game 1 of the Rays-Phillies World Series was the most popular topic, with bloggers wondering about the Backstreet Boys being selected to sing the national anthem and whether the match-up will draw good ratings. Also popular was discussion about ESPN not reporting  on the story that former Packers QB Brett Favre allegedly discussed the Packers’ schemes with the Detroit Lions. Many believed that ESPN was not discussing the story because it was broken first by FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer. The demise of Elite XC continued to be highly discussed and remained in the third spot of the Top 5. The one game suspension of Browns TE Kellen Winslow after his disparaging comments towards the team’s management sparked conversation among bloggers. The non-suspension of ESPN college football analyst Lou Holtz remained in the Top 5. Bloggers are now reacting to a statement from ESPN’s Jemele Hill, who was suspended recently for a Hitler reference, that she is focusing on her own career and is not going to worry about what happens to Holtz.
