I think its funny people were/are cracking on Person for breaking news from that concert the other night. The dude took his teenage daughter to a concert, probably got a text from someone he knows in the organization, and did his best to get out the information to everyone who craves it. I agree he could do more in-depth analysis of transactions/story lines, but whatever.

The best beat reporter in Charlotte is Rick Bonnell. He breaks some news, but always does his best to give his analysis about the team also.

Person-ally, I say, everyone should enjoy this tech to their hearts ccontent. If you are into it, go for it. If, like I and a few others, and don't want a clue, leave me out of it.

Never let anyone tell you your aren't cool. Ignore me so you can tell your 45,739 friends, there is a cute blond at the bar.

Back in the day, in the good ol' days...

Do you really understand barometric pressure and know what to do with that information?


To a certain extent, yes.

So, care to elaborate on why you and most people need to know barametric pressure?

My point is-- the graphics, the 3-D maps with special effects, the doplar radar, the dramatic meteorologists...and they still can't tell you if it is going to snow or not. It is more appearance than substance. In most all cases, people simply want to know what the weather will be like today and tomorrow, and they take up 10 minutes of time not getting to the point and then fly through 48 scores from 3 sports in 23 seconds.

In fact, TV sports and weather reporting is rather stupid because people can google and get updated results instantly. TV is funny because they try to keep you viewing through teases and misleading statements. "There is snow in the forcast--how much and where, at 6:00." I just grab my computer and see that they were actually referring to flurries in Boone.
