If you don’t like the Kentucky Derby, well, you best high-tail it out of Louisville for the next few weeks. This reader knows what I’m talking about:
Hey, hope there’s a story in tomorrow’s paper about the state of Uncle Mo’s stool. Yes it’s that time of year, when you morons overwhelm us with horse racing minutiae that only … well, maybe someone cares about it. Certainly not the average reader or subscriber.
Do we get excited about Derby? Of course. It’s awesome and fun and great for our city. But we don’t get excited about having the sports pages turn into the horse pages.
Can’t wait for more pictures of horses being walked around! Or of horses galloping! And really can’t wait for all the workout crap. And for 10 more stories about Uncle Mo and what his trainer and owner think his chances are!
Finally, someone has the real scoop on why Ken Griffey Jr. left Seattle for Cincinnati 10 years ago, and why he retired in the middle of this season with the Mariners.
Thought this would be an appropriate time to post this in light of tonight’s hype-tastic LeBron James circus on ESPN. This reader actually has it right: He’s just a human being, folks.
Attention, PR folks: If you want a media outlet to give you some pub, try using spellcheck. And Learn how to Use Capitalization properly. And become familiar with the English language. That is all.
EDITOR: Please help us get a write up on PLAYER A our Record breaking QB for for Three years now, he used to play for the PRO TEAM. Please give us a write up on our game on the 26th of June 2010 at 6pm at XXXXXX HS Stadium. We need to fill the stands on this night!..It will be a Military Appreciation Day Game, the DAV,NABVETS, and VFW will be speial invites, as you too. I have already sent you Press Tickets. EDITOR, does the XXXXX and XXXXXX area have a a day for their News. I have talked to alot of XXXXX in both areas-and they wonder why CITY Sports does not give their XXXXX & XXXXX area AAA Minor League Teams any coverage. Please help us get our Winning games pubhlished in your Sports Column. Unlike the PRO TEAM A and PRO TEAM B We Win, and we don’t play for $$$, our Tickets prices are low, We Play for the love of the game, Kinda like the COLLEGE TEAM A, But we have No scholarships, But need FANS, please help us. Times are tough, But we can help you sell Newspapers over this Online Garage. Please get in touch.
A little background: COACH leaves UNIVERSITY A for UNIVERSITY B. Newspaper covering UNIVERSITY A sometimes publishes stories about COACH’s goings-on at UNIVERSITY B. This, of course, is wholly unacceptable.
Please stop writing stories about COACH. I could care less. I dont know if one of your writers has a boner for UNIVERSITY B or COACH, but its annoying. How about more stories on the UNIVERSITY A football team and UNIVERSITY A’S COACH.
High school all-star teams bring out the best in everyone involved. A real feel-good feature in the paper, don’t you think?
Congrats to all the athletes for their very successful seasons. Special kudos to all those HIGH SCHOOL NAME athletes mentioned.
I can’t believe the XXXXXXX had the nerve to leave the rest of the HIGH SCHOOL NAME kids off the honor roll, what a farce.
Not sure what “gynmastics” is, but it sounds kinda dirty.
Boy’s do have Gynmastics and it is an NCAA sport. Too bad the NEWSPAPER refuses to cover the fact that we have over 10 Nationally ranked Boys headed to Indy in May to represent the State of XXXXX. And these kids have muscles and are in the weight room as much as the football players. And they are friends kids and NOT mine! Can we please have a make-over of the sports section which only covers HS sports similar to the OTHER NEWSPAPER? PLEASE. Best Sports coverage I have EVER seen. Boys and Girls are covered equally.
Telling your readers that there is a football game at STADIUM this saturday - great. Is it so hard to tell your readers how much tickets are and where to buy them? Poor job.
After years of research and this reader’s response, it has been decided that the word “sour” is, in fact, the most awful, negative, degrading word in the English language.
I spent the last 24 hours deciding whether or not I should write this…..obviously, I have chosen to……
I feel it is important to note my disappointment with the choice of words used in the Headline following our loss in the Girl’s Regional Semi-Final Game; “TEAM A, TEAM B End on Sour Note”.
What an extremely poor choice of words to use to describe the end of our season. From beginning to end, these young ladies accomplished what no one in the city (myself included) thought they would- 21 wins, a Conference Championship and a District Championship. Their success should be celebrated- not degraded with negative headlines.
I certainly realize that you guys are not the ones who write the Headlines, however, I do believe that you have the ability to influence those that do……
Since the article was published, as AD, I have been dealing with angry parents saying a headline like that would never have been written about a OTHER LEAGUE team. I am not in a position to argue for or against that- each person can draw their own conclusions…… However, I did review Headlines from the past Month and nowhere is there Headline with such a negative tone (including when the #1 team lost in Sectionals- there are words like Upset, Snapping Droughts, Spoiler, and more….all appropriate based upon the game at hand.
From the looks of the article, it does not appear that either coach said that the end of their season was “Sour”. If they had, REPORTER would have quoted it (and rightfully so)……I don’t think that anyone would consider losing to the #1 team in CITY, who also has 21 wins, an Upset or Sour.
I simply don’t understand why the two teams who went farther in the Tournament than anyone else in the City (public or private) needed to be portrayed in such a negative light by our own local media- these are high school kids- they deserve better!!
This might be a first in the history of newspapers: A reader admits he was wrong. Let’s bronze it for posterity.
I recently sent in a complaint about your coverage of 2 TEAM HS state champs. I withdraw my complaint. i did not know that there was a late edition that came out. thank you very much for coming out with the late edition and giving attentiont to a much deserved state champ WRESTLER A.
Everyone is entitled to a bad week once in a while, right?
I thought you guys did a decent job at covering high school football… until this week.
Weird. I didn’t even know there were still ads in newspapers.
