I had to say this early, because I was listening to sports radio again. One of the guys says “ratings for this Masters were down 10 percent”.
Who cares? Why even mention it?
Besides a bunch of network flunkies and bean counters, who really cares about ratings?
Do you watch sports because of the ratings an event may have? If you do, you’re a weirdo. Last I heard, it’s harder than ever to get a ticket to the Masters. In fact, a different sports radio guy said getting a ticket to the Masters is harder than getting one for any other sporting event. Bar none.
Please, sports media guy: I’ve learned the number of people watching an event has nothing to do with the quality of the event. Otherwise, Jerry Springer and Maury Povich would have nothing to do.
