This week's sign that the Apocalypse is upon us

Found this article via the Corner. Apparently, the ads on the backstop are insufficient to meet demands. Now they'll be placed directly on the BASES as well. Excerpt:

Spider-Man is coming to a base near you.

In the latest example of a sponsor's stamp on the sports world, ads for the movie "Spider-Man 2" will be placed atop bases at 15 major league ballparks during games from June 11-13.

Update: The Yankees have balked at the idea.

My respect for the Yankees has grown immeasurably for this. Other than that, I still hate them. :)

It's good to hate the Yankees. :-)
