Praising the Good.
There's enough negativity in the world. (I realize this statement is itself somewhat negative.)
So, I am launching an occasional series where I will praise the good I see.
Last Friday night, I watched the end of the Los Angeles Lakers' game against the Portland Trailblazers.
Kobe Bryant exploded for 65 points, but that was not the best part.
Fox Sports West-Prime Ticket innovations in its telecast were. First, the camera angles projected the game as if the viewer were sitting courtside in one of those multi-thousand dollar seats. Second, there were no announcers. Third, there were no commercials. I don't know how Fox did it, or how it might sustain it in the future. For example, Fox also simultaneously showed a conventional broadcast, but who would prefer to watch the commercials or through distant camera angles?
If Fox employs this technique again, I commend it to anyone who has access.
