Convention Timing

Who was the genius who scheduled the opening night of the Republican National Convention against the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football? I mean, sure, I can TiVo John McCain and Rudy Giuliani but will most people be willing to bother?

    Nope, not me. I hadn’t planned on watching the convention anyway. Especially up against the ‘Boys.

  2. Jeff says:

    So John McCain against a bunch of backups in a preseason game?

    Tough choice…. as in tough deciding if I want to put myself through either of those – especially since it’s the Cowgirls.

    I guess that means Law & Order reruns on TNT. Raw might be more exciting sports entertainment than the 4th preseason game involving any teams.

    It’s just Vinny Testaverde, after all. And a broken-down Eddie George.

    So my “swap” button will get a workout. Heck I live in Dallas. The traffic is going to be so much fun. NOT.
