ESPN Biased Against Big Sky All-Stars?
Big Sky All-Stars have advanced to the U.S. Championship Game of the Little League World Series with a win in their semifinal game at Wednesday night. Slipping by West Region champions Oceanview All-Stars from California with a score of 1-0, the All-Stars will play the winner of Thursday night’s “loser’s bracket” game between California and hometown favorites Keystone All-Stars from Clinton County, Pennsylvania. The winner of Saturday’s game will face the winner of the international bracket in the World Series Championship on Sunday at 1 p.m.
Although the California team was the heavy favorite to win the game, The Flakes feel that the play by play announcing was a bit biased towards California. This is a little surprising, since announcer Brent Musburger was raised in Billings, MT. Listen to the discussion from the show this morning, where the Flakes also discuss whether or not it’s fair for Billings to be sent straight home if they lose their next game this Saturday.
What do you think? Was the play by play biased towards California, or did they cover both teams fairly?
