Good morning, gang!   It’s your official sports reporter Davey Mac here with a Wednesday Report for ya!   NBA Playoffs have begun!   NFL on YouTube!   And MORE!   But first!

Did you hear about the incredibly fast-moving MLB games this year?   Game times are down almost a half hour (from three hours to around 2 hours, 30 minutes).   And everyone is happy!   The fans in the stadium, the viewers at home, even the players and coaches!   But there’s one thing that some owners are finding problematic…less time to sell beer!

Well, fear not, beer-drinkers!   Four teams (the Diamondbacks, Rangers, Twins, and…of course…the Brewers) have decided to extend beer sales into the 8th inning as opposed to cutting off sales in the 7th.   And more teams are expected to follow suit and allow to be sold later in the game.

Hey…I ain’t complaining!   This is a much better solution than raising prices…so I’m all for it!   Now if they can just cut their prices on hot dogs and pretzels and we’d be all set!   I’m Davey Mac…that’s my Sports Two Cents!
