(Jan. 27 issue) Rhonda’s Remarks-Sports ruin television for me as well as other non-fans like me
I can certainly understand why so many sports channels have been added to local cable.
What I don’t get is why network telelvision shows are pre-empted so they can show even more ballgames.
Wednesday night there were games on the three sports channels and Channel 27 was showing a Southeastern Conference game. They showed a “taped delay” of Criminal Minds and Paula Abdul’s dance show. They both came on so late that working people couldn’t watch them.
I know this is just my problem, everybody else in Kentucky thinks basketball is wonderful. I always loved going to high school basketball games especially when my children were in pep band. That is also the only reason I went to football games…to watch the marching band.
I guess I am just more interested in music and literature than I am sports. My son did play basketball, and little league baseball, but he was better at playing trumpet.
My older brother, Larry, was the only one of my siblings that played sports. He was a pretty good baseball player. My brother, Joey, well he plays guitar. My sister, Cleta, was the high school newspaper editor and my sister, Betty, was all about music…band and chorus.
I guess I will just have to catch the reruns this summer of the shows that are pre-empted for sports. And since I can’t do anything to change it, I will stop complaining about it.
Well…maybe I will just grumble to myself.
Everybody who is tired of snow, raise your hand.
Yep. Me too.
I have always enjoyed weather, all kinds of it.
I like it when it rains as long as it only rains for one day.
I love the sunshine and that I could handle every day.
I like snow as long as I don’t have to drive in it and as long as it only snows every once in a while.
I can handle cold, a little bit at a time, but not days and days of it.
Many years ago when I worked at Hardy Brothers, Ray Hardy said he loved weather as long as it keeps changing.
That’s the way I am. You have to love changing weather if you are going to live in Kentucky.
So “Let it rain, let it snow, let that cold north wind blow…” but only for a litte while please.
