“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Fox Sports may be ruining football for me

Fox Sports announced that it will start using situation-appropriate bumper music inbetween plays and during replays, kind of like a soundtrack to a movie.

I don't need to have my mood manipulated by music in order to be more emotionally involved in the game. If you are watching the game, you understand the situation and the addition of music would only be a distraction and a cheap trick to enhance the NFL experience. It's stupid and I predict it will last about as long as the no-announcer games 30 years ago....exactly one game. Why does the NFL need to mess with something that is working? Are there not enough viewers? Why make every game be like NFL Films? It's stupid!

You're right, Ed.

I wish the annoucers would just pay attention to the game, play it straight, and quit trying to impress everyone with their vast knowledge.
