Baseball playoffs haven’t exactly been getting the best ratings… Fox even buried Game 3 of the ALCS in the afternoon for X Factor before a two-hour rain delay ruined the plan, so the MLB’s latest promo featured the St. Louis Cardnials Rally Squirrel. A squirrel ran across the field in Games 4 and 5 of the NLDS between the St. Louis Cardinals and Philadelphia Phillies. In Game 4, the play as interrupted when the Rally Squirrel ran across home plate as Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt was delivering a pitch to Skip Schumaker. The pitch was called a ball much to Oswalt and Phillies manager Charlie Manuel’s dismay. The Cardinals went on to win the series causing many to attribute the win to the Rally Squirrel.

ESPN sideline reporter Samantha Steele is engaged to Minnesota Viking QB Christian Ponder earning her the honor of December 2012 Jersey Chaser of the Month.Steele and Ponder began dating at the begining of the NFL season and both had breakout years. Ponder claimed the starting job for the Vikings, while Steele was crowned ESPN’s new darling with the departure of Erin Andrews. The couple met on the College Game Day set. When asked about the relationship, Ponder said: “The cool thing is that obviously, we’re both at the same time, so we don’t get to see each other that much. But at least one person isn’t feeling guilty about not making the effort to do it or whatever. Then we kind of have the same schedule in the off season, so that’ll be good.” Share It
