Bested By The Cleveland NBC Affiliate, The Tie Is In Question

* Fie on you, Cleveland NBC affiliate! Again you thwart me by pre-empting The Nightly News with an Indians Baseball Pregame Show! I am forced to assess BW's tie as a pixellated imperfection and wrestle with the subtleties of color, texture, and knot. As a result, I am perplexed, flummoxed, and befuddled. Is this a Debut Tie of deep navy with rose stripes, or is it the hideous Tribute to Dora the Explorer Tie of dark violet and fuschia? To compound my misery, the Indians lost 6-2 to the Boston Red Sox in an alarming display of impotent starting pitching.
