The car companies are pretty big national buyers, too; as a regional
sports net you get the regional dearlers' associations, whereas the
networks and national cable get the automakers.  (And of course local
cable gets the single wacko dealer from 30 miles away who bought all
of eastern Mass. because it was cheap, never mind that nobody is going
to drive that far to buy from him.)

I was paying enough attention to the spots on the World Series this
year to note that all three megabrewers (Anheuser-Busch, SABMiller,
and Molson Coors) bought time.  Too bad they only made two spots each
-- after rather fewer than twelve games, one is thoroughly sick of all
of them.
