Phils plan public viewing of Game 3 on Sunday

The Phillies are planning to give you another choice on where to watch Game 3 of their series against the Dodgers on Sunday night. Little information has been released as yet, but team officials are saying that they're planning a public viewing of the game at Penn's Landing starting at 8 on Sunday night.

Game time is 8:22 p.m. in Los Angeles.

Of course, last week the Eagles and Phillies played at the same time. Those with two TVs were in the best shape; otherwise it was an afternoon spent clicking the remote back and forth. This Sunday both teams will be on the West Coast. The Eagles will play the 49ers at 4:15 in the Bay Area, and almost certainly will be over before the first pitch is thrown at Dodger Stadium.

There was talk of arranging a public viewing of last Saturday's NLDS Game 3 at Milwaukee, but those plans were trashed when word of Bruce Springsteen's free concert on the Parkway for Barack Obama was announced.

ABOUT THIS BLOG:
Athletic contests were, for a long time, simply fun and games. Nowadays they’re just a small part of a sports entertainment industry that puts billions of dollars into play and a number of issues into motion. Moneyball indeed. You might be closer to the action than ever before, but that privilege comes at a price - and often it’s beyond what you can afford.

With that as the backdrop we’ll use this blog to dig out stories and swap advice about how the fan experience is changing and what it’s costing you now and in the future. Some of it will educate, some will let you vent. And in a sports panel format, it should allow for a consensus of opinion that can carry some weight.
