"As the scores came in via steampunk internet (a.k.a. the telegraph) five guys playing Oz would pull the wires and flip the switches and reproduce the game with only a slight time delay, so that the crowd could still enjoy each and every moment, from the joy of a last inning grand slam to the heartbreak of losing to those clowns on the other side of town that just need a good smack in the eye to take 'em down a peg. Why, the machine would probably still be running today, if it weren't for that riot at Comiskey Park's "Flapper Victrola Re-constitution Night" in the late thirties. And what a loss it was."
