The Goldmine: Johnny NFL Sunday Ticket?

December 14, 2014 City College News 0

Nothing beats watching exciting football in the winter. I have noticed multiple advertisements promoting NFL Sunday Ticket during my recent viewing sessions. This enticing television package enables the viewer to escape regional boundaries. I wasn’t previously intrigued by this opportunity. A life alerting announcement was recently released by popular television channel Fox sports.

Johnny Manziel will make his first career NFL start Sunday in Ohio on Fox. This groundbreaking event alerted the game’s television coverage. Announcers originally tasked with covering the Packers/Bills were given the opportunity to visit Ohio instead. The league’s regional coverage will prevent Midwesterners from experiencing the same luxury. Spending large sums of money on services you will only use once isn’t smart. There are exceptions to the rule. If you’re from Ohio, have an affiliation to Texas A&M or cheer for the Browns, I recommend purchasing NFL Sunday Ticket.

Professional sports were once viewed as an affordable form of entertainment. Kids had the opportunity to witness local heroes perform in the same uniform every night. Every morning civilians scanned newspaper box scores. I recall witnessing balanced teams duke it out every night. These activities have become a scarcity in the modern world. I believe professional sports are going through a global warming crisis. The difference is it isn’t preventable.
