So lately I've been listening to sports radio. Don't ask me why, I guess because my Gamecocks are doing pretty well so far and I want to hear about them. I've noticed, however, that talking heads on sports shows like to supply a lot of superfluous information.
The Detroit Lions and the Indianapolis Colts are playing today. The Indianapolis Colts are a good football team. Peyton Manning does great things with the football. Tony Dungy is a great football coach.
Do they think we're too stupid know that we're listening to a show about football, and that we lack the basic NFL background knowledge that the Lions are from Detroit and the Colts are from Indianapolis? Casual listeners usually don't settle on 620AM when they're browsing through the dial.
