The official 87-minute 2008 World Series DVD premiered last night and is available today at your local retailer, with the Blu-ray version hitting stores Dec. 16.
In keeping with the holiday spirit, Beerleaguer sets aside some real estate for the good folks at baseball’s business relations office, who overnighted a copy of the Phillies World Series DVD that arrived on my doorstep yesterday. The disc is getting raves and I can’t wait to watch it. It’s hard to believe that on Friday it’s one month since it all happened. A lot has changed since then: an election; a sharp economic downturn; the government committing close to $7 trillion, total, in economic bailouts, including another $800 billion rescue plan announced today to buy up bad mortgages, making it roughly $1 trillion in government commitments since Brad Lidge struck out Eric Hinske. A lot of people are getting burned by this, but at least there’s baseball. At least there’s a pennant. We can all take comfort in that.
