Spring training — the political version

February 22, 2008 at 8:44 pm 2 comments

Hey there, all you snowbound New Englanders. Want something to take your mind off winter? Your Boston Red Sox are in spring training in Florida. Want something else to take your mind off winter? Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton are duelling it out in another warm-weather locale — Texas, site of Thursday’s debate. Bob and Susannah discuss these two different kinds of spring training — baseball vs. political — in a vacation-themed “Running Gags”!

Merci to my muse for the idea.

    Martin, where are you?

    This idea has a wonderful subtle message. Sports and Politics, we feed on excitement and “the rush”. Issues and solving problems, boring don’t you think? Or put another way, ” The medium is the message” Guess who said that and you may win a significant prize. Enjoy the rush while it lasts.

    Marshall McLuhan coined the phrase ”The medium is the message” approx 50 years ago. Guess who Marshall McLuhan was and Rob might possibly award you a prize. [Give up? check out http://www.leaderu.com/orgs/probe/docs/mcluhan.html ]
