Row 44 Bringing Live MLB Games To Southwest

Southwest Airlines customers will soon be able to watch their favorite baseball team 30,000 feet in the air.

Row 44 Inc., Southwest’s in-flight broadband Internet provider, signed a deal with Major League Baseball that will allow the airline giant to stream audio and video broadcasts to passengers’ Wi-Fi enabled devices.

“Major League Baseball is such a part of the fabric of America — and has always been more than a professional sports organization,” said Howard Lefkowitz, Row 44′s chief commercial officer. “It is an honor that they’ve chosen to undertake this innovation with Row 44 — becoming the first sports league to offer in-flight live streaming video of its games. This partnership is the first in a series that underscore Row 44′s commitment to creating a unique broadband entertainment experience for our airline partners and their customers.”

Southwest is slated to have their entire fleet wired by 2013.

Barstool Editor Banned From WEEI After Posting Naked Pictures of Brady's 2-year-old Son

Barstool Sports editor David Portnoy was a regular guest on The Dennis and Callahan Show on WEEI — until yesterday, when Portnoy posted pictures of Tom Brady’s naked two-year-old son beneath the wisecracking headline, “Check out the howitzer on Brady’s kid.” Brady’s son was frolicking on the beach along with Brady’s wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen.Portnoy didn’t take the pictures, but his decision to post them and make cracks about a two-year-old’s endowment was enough to earn the ire of WEEI producer Jason Wolfe, who wrote on Twitter, “For those who have been tweeting at me…No we will not have Portnoy on again. What he did was completely irresponsible. It’s not about whether he was allowed to do it or not. It’s about common decency. And he showed none.”

Portnoy in a video defended himself against the onslaught of negative press, mainly saying that it’s not pornographic since the kid is so young. If you want to see the video, go to Barstool Sports. We’re not linking to it or the pictures. I disagree that his actions weren’t over the line. As soon as you start making reference to a child’s sex organs (with photos), you’ve gone to creepytown. The post attempts to make light of how Peyton Manning’s kids would be so lucky to be so well-endowed, but the humor is grossly outweighed by the inappropriateness of the source material.
