Thanks, KSN!

Posted Saturday, August 16, 2008, at 3:45 PM

A shout out goes to the fine folks at KSN as they broadcast NBC's coverage of the Olympic Games.

I would like to thank KSN for putting on those big, honking ads that cover the bottom one-fifth of the screen every once in a while that always seem to appear right on top of a graphic that has important information!

This is why I've been watching KSHB since about day two. But I can always tell when I didn't pay attention as I was flipping through and stopped on KSN because at the top and bottom of every hour, they're sure to remind me by popping another space-eating ad over another important NBC silce of information.

This is unfortunate because NBC has been doing a great job, to the point that I've been watching the entire repeat show until about 3 or 4 in the morning on the nights after I work -- and now you know why I'm not in the office in the morning right now =)

But this is one case where it's good that we also get Kansas City stations on cable. I'm watching KSHB and it's giant-annoying-ad-free Olympics.

Mr.Nuzum... Is there going to be an article in the newspaper on the 2008 Babe Ruth Classic Baseball game that Fort Scott hosted Saturday and Sunday August 16th and 17th 2008? I was disappointed that there were no articles this summer on any Babe Ruth or American Legion games??? This game ( the Babe Ruth 15 year old Classic)this past weekend at FSCC was a very big deal to the 15 and 16 year old boys who played and their friends and familys.The two teams( the East and the West) were 36 of the best 15 year old boys from the state of Kansas that were picked to play in the double hitter game on Sunday August 17th with 2 Fort Scott High School boys representing Fort Scott. I was just wondering? thank you.
