TV Timeout: Everybody Loves Papi

Red Sox DH David Ortiz continued his media tour on "Live with Kelly & Michael" this morning, carrying the World Series trophy on-stage. Co-host Kelly Ripa said, "You are one of these fellows that it doesn't matter what team you follow, everybody loves you." Ortiz said the biggest difference this year was "having a new manager." Ortiz: "Last year, we had a lot of issues with players going back-and-forth in various situations with the manager. ... This year was different. This year all we had to focus on was just play. The manager took all the bullets for us" ("Live with Kelly & Michael," 11/5).

HIT IT LONG AND STRAIGHT: Golf Channel's Tripp Isenhour, on the PGA Tour China Series: "This was a brilliant business decision by the PGA Tour. It's a cost effective way for them to dip their foot into an emerging market." Isenhour noted it is "a way to continue to cultivate that talent coming to the PGA Tour." He added if the Tour had waited a few years to implement this, "it would have cost them a lot more" and they "might have been beaten out by OneAsia or the European Tour" (“Golf Central,” Golf Channel, 11/4).

NFL CELLAR DWELLERS: CBS Sports' Gregg Doyel, on the Jaguars: "That's a poorly run team, a poorly coached team, a poorly owned team, poorly supported team and that's a market that deserves 0-16" (“Rome,” CBSSN, 11/4). 

MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC: Monday's edition of "CBS This Morning" examined the similarities between N.Y. Philharmonic Music Dir & Conductor Alan Gilbert and Patriots QB Tom Brady, with CBS News cultural correspondent Wynton Marsalis saying, "A great football game is like a great orchestral performance: It's a show of tempo, finesse and rhythm and in both there's one person at the helm directing, dictating and controlling the field of play." Marsalis: "A well-balanced football team in motion plays like a symphony orchestra performing a great masterpiece. ... But all of those forces have to be deployed in a delicate balance under the leadership of just one" ("CBS This Morning," CBS, 11/4).
