Pat Sajak guardian Angel?

Anyone else happen to notice a familiar face behind home plate at Angel Stadium in Anaheim this week? A certain host of a certain game show having to do with a Wheel and Fortune?

I am, of course, referring to Pat Sajak, host of Wheel of Fortune, who has been a prominent presence looming in the background of the ALCS out in Anaheim, California, where the New York Yankees are battling the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (aka the Halos) for a spot in the World Series.

Wonder if any Angels have asked Pat if they could buy a run (and if Vanna's working the scoreboard).

[O/T: Anyone else SICK of those BlackBerry commercials featuring the Beatles "All You Need Is Love" that Fox seems to air at EVERY commercial break? I used to like that song....]

UPDATED 10/21/09: So why is Pat Sajak there behind home plate? His buddy, and sports agent to the stars, Scott Boras got him those primo seats (no doubt as an early birthday present), per Dan Patrick. Btw, the Angels could have used to buy a few runs last night (and/or bought the umpires some glasses), losing to the Yankees 10-1. No word if Sajak will again be sitting shiva (even though he's Christian) behind home plate Thursday night.

On the commercials: Last year was Miller Lite's Drinkability and Chevy Chase's pool scene from Vacation for Direct TV. This year on TBS (NLCS) we have Fergie http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=US8ovqcIGS0 for Direct TV.
Yes- These playoffs are being defined by the overplayed ads.

The makers and marketers of Bud Light are hanging their heads at that comment. (Hate to admit this but we kinda like the Tailgate Tested! Tailgate Approved! ads and think the Bud Light grooler and foozie are BRILLIANT.) As for those DirectTV ads with the Black Eyed Peas, it has RUINED the Peas for me. :-(
