They needed an easy-to-read team name

Here’s some baseball-related nostalgia…

That’s from “The Electric Company,” original air date April 15, 1977. No, I have no idea what’s wrong with the mouths — perhaps that’s why they didn’t give one to Spider-Man in his

“Electric Company” iteration. Anyway, the villain in this episode is The Wall, who, disguised as a piece of the outfield wall at Shea Stadium, runs forward at a crucial point in the game, giving the other team a home run. Why, yes, that does sound like something from the “Major League Supercrimebusters” segments of “The Complacents.”

(You know who the head writer of “The Electric Company” was for most of its run? Joss Whedon’s father.)

My first game of 2006

Yes, Dodger Stadium has new seats this season, in lovely pastel colors which really do look like they’re from 1962. They also renumbered the seats, so that instead of having aisle numbers, with seats starting at “1” on one side and “101” on the other side, the reserved level now has section numbers like a normal stadium. (Things were even weirder on the field and loge levels, with one row letter covering two rows, one with seat numbers increasing and the other with seat numbers decreasing — presumably,

that situation has been dealt with as well.)

Yes, quite a few Chicagoites will show up at Dodger Stadium when the Cubs are in town, wearing the world’s cutest baseball cap…

Someone near us had a radio, so I know that Vin Scully described 6-foot-7 Cubs pitcher Sean Marshall as “a tall drink of water”…

This game had something for everyone, from bone-jarring collisions to wildly errant throws. Best of all, though, is the fact that the Dodger Stadium music selection committee has provided the world with a new, particularly appropriate song to play for bases on balls: Tegan and Sara’s “Walking with a Ghost,” in the form of the White Stripes’ cover version. Why is it particularly appropriate? Because walks haunt.

Keeping track of ex-major leaguers on game show panels

In the 1970s, Joe Garagiola was on “To Tell the Truth” with class acts like Kitty Carlisle and Tom Poston (and served as host for one season, as seen in the film “Catch Me If You Can“).

30 years later, Billy Bean has to sit next to a man wearing a bright pink jacket.

This is GSN’s revival of “I’ve Got a Secret,” which premiered tonight — and which is actually pretty good.

This is a great week for "Peanuts" reruns

Very easy way to update this “Peanuts” for 2006: for “Casey Stengel, sick ” read “Ozzie Guillen.”

(Hmm, medical maybe once the “Complete Peanuts” series is finished 20 years from now, Fantagraphics can move on to “The Annotated Complete Peanuts.”)

These "Peanuts" reruns should come with annotations

This strip originally ran in 1959. That’s two years before the Senators moved to Minnesota and became the Twins, so the reference is to the Minneapolis Millers of the minor-league American Association.

In 1959, the Yankees finished in third place in the American League, and the Millers finished in first place in the AA (but lost the Junior World Series to the Havana Sugar Kings of the International League). They probably could have taken the Yankees.

Do not adjust your set

Levi was at the Cardinals-Cubs game today. I watched the Comcast SportsNet broadcast from home.

Levi had to watch the Cardinals not score any runs in the top of the 9th inning and lose 3-2, but I saw something else instead of the last two outs…

I remember being impressed back in 1989 that ABC had a slide specifically reading “World Series” at the ready to throw up on screen when they lost their feed from San Francisco. As you can see, Comcast SportsNet is not as classy as ABC. (And no wonder they’re experiencing technical difficulties — their cnntrol room looks blurry and smeared.)

Opening Day: Coda

Not to be confused with the photographs-of-a-television-screen that have been used here in the past, these are literal screenshots — each a single frame of broadcast television video, provided through the courtesy of my recently hacked TiVo.
