Sports by Brooks reports that a pizza place in Denver is offering “free pizza for the world” if the Rays win the World Series.

Both the Cubs and White Sox use United Airlines charters for their travel needs, and United always assigns them the same flight numbers: 9904 for the Sox, 9907 for the Cubs.
And therefore, it’s possible to track their flights: 9904 and 9907. Because it’s a charter service, you’ll see some airports that aren’t normally served by United but that are closer to the hotel or stadium: Wheeler Downtown Airport in Kansas City to meet the Royals, for example, or St. Petersburg/Clearwater International for Rays games.
FSN has a new series called “Baseball’s Golden Age,” along the same lines (and produced by the same people) as the HBO “When It Was a Game” documentaries of a few years back. This means it’s full of old film from the ’30s to the ’60s, mostly home movies, much of it in color. It’s airing Sunday evenings (here in L.A., at both 5:00 and 8:00
on FSN West). Caution: may contain interviews with Larry King.
After sweeping the Red Sox, the Rays are in first place in the AL East by 3-1/2 games and have the best record in baseball (52-32).
