Who won the tourney?

February 20, 2013 - Chuck Hunt
Man, no wonder I?am not a big fan of television. Never mind the fact that on the rare evening I am home – and not covering a meeting or a ball game – there doesn’t seem to be a darn thing on worth watching. And, never mind that most of what is on is pure drivel and geared to an audience demographic that is certainly not me. Now when I do start watching a program, it gets cut. Case in point. On Sunday, sitting at home suffering from a bout with bronchitis, I started watching golf. I know what you are thinking. Golf. How boring. But this was pretty exciting, with the lead changing left and right, and several golfers in contention to win it. In fact, near the end of the tourney, four golfers could have tied. But, only two actually did tie. They went into sudden death play. On the first hole of sudden death, they tied again. Then, as they were walking to the second playoff hole, the announcers suddenly said they were switching the coverage to the golf channel. So that 60 Minutes could start right then on CBS at 6 p.m. Now, I like 60 Minutes. But I also wanted to see the end of the golf tournament. I had a good two hours of my life invested in this. But, I don’t get the golf channel. I mean, I couldn’t find it on my limited lineup of channels I do get. Call it basic cable. Eventually I found out online who won the tourney. But I mean, really, what are these TV execs thinking? It would be one thing if Tiger Woods was 12 strokes ahead of the rest of the field and who cares about him anyway. But this had built up in excitement for quite some time and then, BAM! Right at the exciting end, they cut away. Unbelievable.
