Softball: Sublimating the Ayem Ratings Wars

Moving their to-the-death battle to a typically non-casualty venue, Today and Good Morning America faced off on the softball field this afternoon, at Heckscher Field in Central Park.

While specific details are still sketchy, we're informed that, inverting their standings on that big, on-air Nielsen diamond, GMA topped Today by a hair, winning 5-4.

We kind of hope Diane Sawyer then shoved Katie Couric into the dirt and said something appropriately bitchy. But, of course, that's not her style. She probably just smiled, nodded, turned, and walked away. Which is way less fun.

Actual — as opposed to imagined — details TK soon.
