TV Timeout: League Of Their Own

With Fox Sports acquiring TV rights for Germany's Bundesliga, FS1's Diego Gutierrez said the league could be regarded as the best soccer league in the world because they have "sound financial principles." They have been "very organized in the way they set up the league." Gutierrez: "The game experience is fantastic, they have one of the cheapest tickets in European soccer, which makes it affordable for people ... and I think they're second only to the NFL in attendance in any sport worldwide. They count on a tremendously balanced business model with marketing, game revenue experience and (teams receive about 25% each from) their media package. So it's very, very balanced. They don’t depend on just one thing" ("Fox Soccer Daily," FS1, 10/30).

"DUBBYA" FOR COMMISH? FS1’s Trevor Pryce, on George W. Bush succeeding Bud Selig: “He’s the best guy for the job because when he owned the Texas Rangers, he put a very little investment in it and by the time he left it was a very big payout. He knows how to grow a franchise. I think this is a fantastic idea" (“Crowd Goes Wild,” FS1, 10/30).

GOTTA BE THE SHOES: Fox’ AJ Pierzynski, on Red Sox OF Shane Victorino’s red, white and blue shoes: “I got to give Shane and the people at Nike credit, he had the coolest shoes. I was admiring those things before the game in the clubhouse. He had the coolest shoes on tonight I’ve ever seen” (“Fox Sports Live,” FS1, 10/30). Fox' Ken Rosenthal said the shoes "actually were designed by a friend of Victorino's in Philadelphia and Shane encouraged me to tweet out a photo of the shoes before the game and I was happy to oblige. And I must say, the fashionistas on Twitter approved" ("Cardinals-Red Sox," Fox, 10/30).
