Dbacks Put on Back Burner on Own Pregame Show

By Scott Allen

I just read Fox Sports Arizona is going to discuss Arizona Cardinals football during tonight’s pregame telecast prior to the Arizona DiamondbacksWashington Nationals game.  Wow!

Here I thought even Fox Sports AZ wouldn’t get tired of talking Dbacks, but apparently they have.  You know things aren’t going well when the topic of a team’s pregame show is another team – from another sport!  I’m not even sure what to say to that other than wow.  I get the Cardinals are the talk of the town as their training camp gets going, but there is a time and place to talk Cardinals.  I can tell you the Dbacks pregame is not one of them.  I’m a huge Cardinals fan and most of you know I blog for them too, but seriously, have we REALLY run out of things to talk about when it pertains to the Dbacks?  I guess so.

I realize the whole show is not dedicated to the Cardinals tonight, but to even bring them up and spend time on them is quite something.  Clearly even the media is growing tired of the Dbacks and needs to generate excitement somehow.  We know the Dbacks aren’t doing that.  This town is thirsty for some positive sports news.  Right now, the Cards are on the clock.
