Imagination Sufficed (again)
Due to unforeseen circumstances, I caught the 4th quarter of Super Bowl XLV on AM radio driving home from a party which had had a wide screen HD TV. After my initial hesitance, I found the radio sportscasting actually exciting, and realized that the art of creating excitement and buzz at a live event was not lost. Of course my kids were clueless about this appreciation because they simply could not visualize a game, even with the help of a good radio sportscaster. For them, such things must be as explicit as possible.
How appropriate to hear a live radio sportscaster on the centenary of Ronald Reagan's birth. Reagan was a natural talent able to narrate a period of history. He was not the first nor the last to have this talent.
Oh, Congratulations to the Green Bay Packers!!!!
