How New Default Consensus Realities Instantiate

Perhaps the Biggest Non-Event of the New Millennium

WSJ.Com shocked the world today with this earth-shaking announcement that means everything in the world of sport is now – as never before – exactly the same, only different. What a phantasmagorical non-content noisemaker this stands to become.<blockquote>Two staples of television football – Monday Night Football on ABC and the Sunday night game on ESPN – are no more.</blockquote>Oooo …. are no more … this is sooo hewwwge!<blockquote>Monday night’s National Football League game will now appear on ESPN, and the Sunday night game moves to NBC. Both networks need to re-create their football identities and persuade legions of fans to change deeply ingrained TV-viewing habits.</blockquote>Yeah, man … REALLY, REALLY, DEEPLY INGRAINED habits of clicking on channel 3 instead of 47. What a tremendous, world-tilting SHIFT this will be; punching TWO NUMBERS on the remote instead of just one! “Oh NFL and TV networks, you’re SO BRAVE; I luuv yew!”
