The protests have been one thing, but moving on to the rebroadcast and redistribution of the pictures, accounts and descriptions of these games without the express written consent of Major League Baseball shows that the Occupy Wall Street is about nothing but anarchy!
Occupy St. Louis invited baseball fans on Tuesday to watch the World Series for free on a big screen at its campsite, and said it would stream its message against economic inequality between innings. The group, part of the nationwide Occupy Wall Street movement, said it would show the opening game of the series, which starts on Wednesday at Busch Stadium, at its Kiener Plaza campsite.
“Come watch the game with the 99 percent,” the group’s Facebook posting said. “Show the world that there isn’t a need for corporate sponsors to enjoy baseball.” “We will be projecting the game on our big screen, but without corporate sponsors. Commercials will be replaced with other Occupy groups’ livestream,” it said.
All I’ll say is thank God that it’s Fox and not TBS with the World Series. Because otherwise these people would never know when “The Big Bang Theory” was going to be on!
