"There's Only One October"

Postby bigh0rt » Mon Jul 09, 2007 7:21 pm

Major League Baseball’s postseason marketing campaign will include a Web site that allows fans to create their own compilations of past playoff highlights. MLB will launch the “There’s Only One October” campaign, featuring comedian Dane Cook, during the broadcast of Tuesday’s All-Star game on Fox.

The Web site,, will give fans access to an expansive archive of MLB footage, including more than 60 clips of historical postseason plays such as Willie Mays’ catch in the 1954 World Series and Kirk Gibson’s 1988 home run.

Actors Kate Mara, William Petersen and Ellen Pompeo have agreed to provide their own compilations of highlights on the site, with other celebrities expected to be added.

Why would they call the website "actober"? It seems like MLB has the scratch to buy the domain name if is already taken, or at least come up with something that is available and more fitting. Actober?

Also, I'm wary of anything that Dane Cook is prominently involved in. If there's going to be a bunch of commercials featuring him, I may have to boycott the all-star game...which will be pretty easy to do, since I wasn't planning on watching it anyway.
