It's like Nascar. It's raining and there's lightning so you can catch yourself couple hours of commercials!

Serious facepalm, I guess I spoke too soon. Yesterday would have been perfect, today is going to be a disaster

you wouldn't be seeing them if not for the ingenuity of boyd duckett and gary klein who started major league fishing and showed there was an audience for competitive fishing on TV....BASS had 30 plus years to grow the sport and never got past 30-35 half hour segments each year....MLF now has over 800 hours on 3 networks and their success has enabled BASS to finally get a few hours TV exposure of their tournaments....

care to explain why you think my comment was unnecessary?.....the original poster made a comment that he never thought he would see live TV coverage of a bass tounry and I posted the reason he is seeing live coverage....

I agree competition is good, BASS was lackadaisical for too many years because they had FLW beat, MLF kicked them into high gear.
