I wouldn't read too much hoopla into this; it's basically what they've been doing on and off for the last couple years anyway, similar to Wednesday night, and it's non-exclusive so the local teams will still have their broadcasts, unlike on Sundays when it's Disney-only.
The big news here is bad news: no more Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day telecasts. Phooey on them.
Or perhaps, completely? Or, as the New York Post so charmingly puts it: Mo No! (espn.go.com) Torn ACL shagging flies during pregame. If that's how it ends, it is amazingly unfortunate for the best closer of all time.
