Fighter jets roar overhead during World Series game #1 opener, Fox TV Network ignores them

Regarding World Series opening game #1, did anyone notice that the FOX11 TV network COMPLETELY IGNORED the 'fighter jet flyover' as Mary J. Blige sang our National Anthem? I could HEAR THE JETS but no attempt was made by FoxTV to show them as they roared overhead!

Was this a slap in the face to our troops, or what? This really P*SSED ME OFF!!!


TOPICS: Chit/Chat; Sports
KEYWORDS: anthem; flyover; mlb; series; world
This should NOT go unnoticed. Shame on you, FoxTV!

God Bless our troops.

Well, I don't hate the players... Now, the fans? Let's just say I am wholeheartedly rooting for the Cardinals and that's coming from a Cubs fan.

Pilots have to make their monthly requirements. Might as we’ll be doing something fun. 5 hours of flight time is 5 hours of flight time.

That was quite a catch by the Cards at 2nd base for the double-play.. NOT! LOL! Nice job, umpires.

Well, Mary didn’t turn our National Anthem into a Southern church revival like I expected. Fair job. She didn’t butcher it too badly. She was a bit rattled by the roar of the jets towards the end, but perfectly timed during a pause after “laaaaaaand of the freeeeeee...(jets roar), and the hooooome of the braaaaaaaaave.”

I’m neutral on this game, but right now the Sox are embarrassing the Cards, 3-0.

Blige stopped singing when they flew over.

Her “version” of the anthem sucked, BTW.

You probably couldn’t hear it because Tim McCarver won’t shut up long enough to hear anything else!

Hiring celebutards to sing the national anthem is a waste of money too.

Have the crowd sing it.

It appears that liberal moles are dragging Fox over to the dark side.

I agree... I was livid!

Why the camera kept focusing on Mary J. Blige during most of the National Anthem was beyond me. Grr!!!

As someone who spends every Sunday morning behind a camera or directing cameras, I can say authoritatively that it’s difficult to catch unexpected one-off events on camera. And I’ve had fighter jets flying directly overhead without being able to catch them with my own 2 eyes, let alone a camera. So maybe your criticism is poorly placed until you try it yourself.

Every pilot must log in so much air time to remain current. Every active aircraft must be flown to keep airworthy. I imagine that this fly over each pilot and craft is logged in to meet the requirement anyway so why not.

Not for nothing,(as our country is falling apart) mainstream media can focus on jets at a ballgame but remain silent on Benghazi - and you’re upset with Fox?

Mary J. Blige

Is that someone everyone is supposed to know? Never heard of that person!

I did catch the “God Bless America” sung by a retired Marine Sgt. in dress uniform. He was excellent!

I've worked broadcast quality cameras. I understand what you're saying, BUT THIS WAS AN EXPECTED OCCURRENCE and there's no excuse to not prep a camera, zoomed out (long shot) to at least catch the glow of the afterburners as the jets roar by. It's been done before and works if camera is stationery.

But it's not just not showing the jets that bugged me, THE ANNOUNCERS NEVER MENTIONED THE FLYOVER OR GAVE THOSE PILOTS ANY RECOGNITION. NO EXCUSE FOR THAT DURING A GAME THAT WAS SUPPOSEDLY DEDICATED TO OUR TROOPS.

They didn’t mention the jets because FOX messed up royaly. Their supposed to fly at the end of the anthem and they flew over while she was singing. Yinz know nothin about TV production. They didn’t mention the planes because FOX sucks and Joe Buck sucks and the planes rock.

***Sounds as if the event wasn’t as well planned out as you are presuming.
