[Brought 2 U By] I'm Listening to Soviet Radio (Apologies to Stan Ridgway)

[ The one thing you can bet the farm on is adverting and sports have a symbiotic relationship. EVERY square inch of viewable space is covered in logos and posters. The talking heads who help us follow the game or race or activity spew Brought 2 U By on nearly every camera redirect.

I don't mind this kind of sponsorship, it's useful, until it sounds like a never ending interruption to, in this case, Sebring 12 Hour race. The veteran sports car guys on FOX's coverage are good guys that I have listened to for years. Today they sound like someone gave them a radio format from space; I could say "Alien Muddy Channel". I am picking on the suits not the on air talent. Got that?
