Dear Fox Sports

You did the world a favor by introducing the little box in the corner of the screen with the score and other game info. However, it's now out of control. This stupid bar you have on top of my screen just makes my TV seem smaller. What was wrong with the box in the corner? All the other channels manage to convey the same info without hogging the screen. And, if you must have a bar, why not put it at the bottom where it is less conspicuous? This bar is worse than that stupid flaming puck. Mostly because it affects a good sport.

And, if you must have a bar...

...could you please stock it with some really stiff drinks because if your sports station is as bad as your news station, I'm going to need something to help me muddle through.

(Sorry couldn't resist. Not really a sports fan, but definitely not a Faux Sports/News fan.)

Fox Sports is far, far, far superior to Fox News, even with the score bar.

I totally agree, i perfer the little box in the bottom corner, Our local station that covers the Pistons, has that big box at the top and i hate it.

Lamest blog entry yet. This one is nothing more than an irate customer service letter -- not an actual editorial of any kind. Maybe you actually should have sent it to Fox Sports instead of inflicting it on us.

Next, you'll be complaining about airplane food and people talking too loudly on their cellphones.

Get your own blog. Who said I could only post about important things? Besides, if you actually watched football, this would bother you too.

The world is falling down around us, let's start talking about some important issues here. How about this article on Al "I invented the internets and now lecture you on pollution" Gore and his hypocritical consumption?
