An anonymous reader who is a fan of the Round Rock Express (Class AAA affiliate of the Houston Astros) sent the following e-mail: "I just got back from an 11-inning yawner that went over four-and-a-half hours. The teams sucks and is pretty hard to watch. The only good thing about tonight was that Jennie Finch was in attendance. She's married to one of the pitchers on the team, Casey Daigle.

It was a 30-second tribute to Carmelo by the "Carmelo Fans in Utah" club. Someone bought 30 seconds of prime time TV to tribute Carmelo from his Utah fans!!!!! Please dig!"

So, it appears this is a viral ad.
