I am supposed to be working on some school projects. So instead, I chose to write this e-mail (and 2 variations) to the t.v. stations.
Dear [t.v. programming person];
I was very disappointed that KTUU chose to show children's programming this morning instead of the Ohio State vs. Wisconsin football game. As you may or may not know, Ohio State is currently ranked number 1 in the nation and was playing another Big Ten school. Both schools have a large following, even here in Anchorage, so I am sure I'm not the only person who was disappointed. Furthermore, I am shocked that you chose to show Notre Dame vs. Navy later on in the afternoon. Neither team is particularly good this year, and Anchorage does not have a large naval base, so why this game is more important than other games including top ten teams is beyond me.
In the past, I'm sure college football has not had a large following in Anchorage, given the fact that there are no college football teams in Alaska. However, with more and more transplants moving to Anchorage from the Lower 48, college football is becoming increasingly popular. I think it would behoove you to consider your audience and choose your programming a little more wisely.
I probably wouldn't have bothered writing, except for the fact that I really really do not want to do my reports. OSU won by the way.
