Was that a prayer vigil or the World Series we watched last week? When it came to crowd shots at Shea and Yankee stadiums, Fox's 22 cameras favored fervid fans with hands pressed together in supplication. Whether they were petitioning for victory or a sub-four-hour game is anyone's guess.... Fox's pregame and postgame music videos for the World Series finale—respectively, Bruce Springsteen's Jungleland and the Andrea Bocelli-Sarah Brightman operatic duet Time to Say Goodbye—were inspired. We assume that had the Series gone to a Game 6, Elton John's Rocket Man would have led off.
