ESPN's Bill Simmons lists some presents that should be given out for Christmas and I would like to echo #5:
5. Five HDTV trucks and accompanying camera equipment
Note: That's just for CBS.
(Seriously, CBS, you're a major television network. Move into the 21st century and show all of your football games in HDTV. It's almost 2007. Enough is enough. It's embarrassing. You should be embarrassed.)
He's right. I long ago got sick and tired of CBS only showing one or two games a week in high-def -- especially when neither of those games was the Chargers.
If CBS can't do it on their own, then the NFL should make sure that as part of the TV contracts next time around that all games will be broadcast in HD -- frankly, they should've done it last time.
Speaking of pro football, this is just sad: The NFC is guaranteed to send at least one, and possibly two .500 teams to the playoffs.
