if I weren’t to be able to make this game, the two teams would still play and nobody would care.”
Buck made the seven-mile trek in around 35 minutes on a police-escorted motorized cable-car trolley in order to be in the broadcast booth in time.
There are at least three things I don't understand in this sentence.
“I feel fine,” Buck said as he waited for the elevator at AT&T Park to bring him to the broadcast booth. “I can’t act like I’m playing in any of these two games or anything. I’m just talking, and hey, I can talk all night.”
...“It’s fun, and I was looking forward to this game all day,” Buck said. “The focus is on these games, and if I weren’t to be able to make this game, the two teams would still play and nobody would care.”

I too have no idea what this is describing, unless there are now cable cars running through Bayview.
by making people feel as though they are having the cable-car experience without having to wait in cable-car lines.
I told you hustle was over-rated.
I thought Buck sounded very engaged and interested last night. Maybe because the Cardinals were playing?
Was there ever a football-baseball double header? The field would be in terrible shape and the lines would still be there, but that wouldn't necessarily have stopped anyone before about 1980.
For the 1990 NLCS I see Game Two played Friday night in Cincy, then they talk the whole weekend off and play Monday in Pittsburgh for Game Three. The Steelers played at home that Sunday, so I'm guessing they moved the Pirates game?
A Vikings game in 1987 was moved to MNF to make room Game Seven of the World Series.
The Chiefs hosted the Rams in Week 7 of the 1985 NFL Season, then that night the Royals hosted the Cardinals in Game 2 of the World Series across the parking lot. The Chiefs hosted the Broncos the following week, with Game Seven played that night.
I think typically the NFL tried to avoid home games with multi-use stadium teams during the MLB playoffs.
And yet they recently hired Gus Johnson, so who knows.
7 miles is what, like 10km? Some people can run that in 35 minutes.
I don't understand the cable car lines. Just don't get on at the first stop. 2 blocks down there is no line, and you just jump on. There is a stop 1/2 block from my house.
How the heck does Andy Reid still have a job?
