BEARS AND 'FINS MAY MOVE TO MONDAY IF MARLINS GO ALL THE WAY
Published October 9, 1997
The Dolphins are scheduled to host the Bears at Pro Player Stadium on Sunday, October 26 -- the same day the Marlins could host "the deciding seventh game of baseball's World Series," according to Michael Hirsley of the CHICAGO TRIBUNE. An NFL spokesperson said that if the Marlins do reach the World Series, and it goes seven games, the Bears- Dolphins game will be moved to Monday night, and there would be two "MNF" games on ABC. The Bears-Dolphins game would be shown in the Chicago market, pre-empting the regularly scheduled Packers-Patriots "MNF" game. The Miami market would get the Bears-Dolphins game only if it is a sellout. Hirsley notes that this has happened once before, in '87 when the Cardinals-Twins Game Seven moved the Broncos- Vikings game to Monday. ABC's regular broadcasting team of Al Michaels, Frank Gifford and Dan Dierdorf will be in New England on October 27, and a backup team would be assigned to the Bears-Dolphins game (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 10/9).
