Very very poor sports coverage by the star. Horrible.
Great stories by Yahoo, Chiefs’ Kingdom, Boston Globe, and countless others.
They employ old geezers that are so out of touch that if you were one inch away you wouldn’t be able to see them.
Old old old writers and picture camera people.
Fact is- this should be a hyped event and they make it look like Bingo on a Saturday at an old folks home.
Support panty hose! (Because the local rag is old)
