A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

College football's amateur broadcasts: The major networks usually do a passably good job. ESPN and Fox Sports can be hit-or-miss. But the third-level sports networks can really stink it up. I just got done watching the decidedly ugly football game that was San Diego State vs. New Mexico. If the play on the field wasn't bad enough, the broadcast itself was worse.

Case in point, from SportsWest:

1. New Mexico blocked a SDSU punt in the first quarter. Unfortunately, no one watching the broadcast got to see it.

2. Instead of watching a play later in the game, we got to see the attendance graphic for a full 15 seconds -- informing us that roughly 28,000 people were there. The most frustrating thing was that you could sorta see the play going in the background.

3. Several times we missed the snap, and on short running plays there isn't much after that. To add insult to injury, the commentators would then encourge viewers to: "Let's watch that again" when the replay was shown.

I hope that SportsWest executives go over the game tape again -- because been years since I've seen such an amateurish broadcast.
