The Doubleheader: Bewitching Ads, Perfect Games, Political Hoop Dreams

BY Hari Sreenivasan  October 8, 2010 at 8:12 PM EST

The sport of politics and the politics of sport is what we are all about in our Friday night check-ins with Mark Shields and David Brooks. On this webisode of The Doubleheader we start the conversation with the new advertisements this political season. Check out some of the videos embedded into this Morning Line post from earlier in the week. We also meandered into the West Virginia Senate race and a poor casting call decision that may factor into the race.

On the politics of sport, we talk about a rare post-season no-hitter and you’ll see Shields and Brooks like you’ve never seen them before — competing alongside political and basketball superstars in the newest edition of the classic arcade game “NBA JAM”, just released by EA Sports.
