Out of the Blue

The tackle football playoffs begin today, which is good news. I do have to repeat a complaint about evening playoff games, though, as the late game kicks off at 8:00 pm today, something I'm not very wild about. At least the NFL hasn't gone the way of Major League Baseball, where a vast majority of the post-season is now played at night. I understand that TV ratings play into this, but I feel it's a mistake to do anything that limits a sports' exposure to young fans. Oh well, that can be another campaign pledge for when I run for emperor of the world: All playoff games will be during the day.

I sure know I'm glad that I live on the west coast when it comes to being a sports fan. If I did live on the east coast I probably would have to do the DVR thing (I don't even own one now) but then I'd also have to insulate myself from the world so as not to find out who won, because once I know that I lose a lot of interest in watching the actual game.
