I stopped in to talk to Bret this afternoon. His office is three doors down from mine and we daily spend a few minutes talking.
We talked about the VP debate that he is anchoring for Fox this Thursday. I pointed out to him that he (and the VP debate) are up against Thursday night football. He said (with a wishful voice) “there isn’t a game.” I said, “check it out…” As I sat there knowing the inevitable, Bret leaned over to his computer…checked it out…. and yes, there is a Thursday NFL game. He grimaced a bit.
I pointed out that now he knows how we at OTR at 10pm feel — we are up against Monday night NFL football AND Thursday night NFL football every week. I also added that in August we were up against the best events in the Olympics. No one wanted to miss Michael Phelps!
And as I left Bret’s office, I added one other thing….”oh yeah…you are also up against the MLB playoffs on Thursday.”
If you love politics, and we do….you want people to watch the debate. But…we also love sports! How lucky we are – DVR! So…on Thursday…make sure you DVR ALL THE GREAT programming!
