MLB.TVs’ “Breakout” commercial break

OK … I gotta give some props to MLB.TV.

This season, their between innings commercial break screen features a baseball floating around the screen.  When it reaches the edge of the screen, you hear a little Pong-like "blip" and then it floats to another corner, or towards the middle, where there is a MLB.TV "bumper".  If it heads towards the bottom of the screen, a "commercial break in progress" "paddle" slides over to keep the ball floating around the screen.

Its MLB.TV "Breakout" …. its cute and clever.

(amended …. it IS cute and clever … but it DOES get a bit tiresome after a few innings)
