Now is the time for Pool on TV - 07-21-2016, 04:58 AM

Seriously.

What else is there to watch? Baseball? Only the diehards care enough to watch at this point in the season.


July-September is the best time to have pool on TV.

Someone get on the horn with ESPN and tell them to get on the bus to Qatar.

I was out in the back yard the other day, watching the grass grow, and it reminded me of a game between the Cubs and the Cardinals, albeit somewhat quieter. Luckily, I was drunk by the seventh inning.
We need, at least, a TV channel that would air old YouTube videos of pool play.
Notice I said air, as in over-the-air. Pay for cable, or satellite. Never.

I don't know. I was so drunk from all that wine (it was wine day at the old imaginary ball park) that I passed out.
All I can remember is my neighbor looking down at me saying, "What the hell! Get your drunk ass out of my flower bed!"
I looked up at him and asked, "How'd the game turn out?"
He said, "Five to three, Cubs."
I said, "Imagine that."

Go Cubs go! Haha

I posted the same sentiments yesterday:
•Only baseball on TV right now
•20+ sports only channels
•pool tourneys would be relatively cheap to produce
•If arm wrestling is on ESPN2 on Tuesday night, by God some pool should be on
•Have ESPN add a bit of money, you'll get the best names there. If there are a million+ amateur league members, there is a market for TV, you just have to put it on. F'in poker is still on TV every time I turn on the tube.
•get the major pool tourneys scheduled from end of June through end of August and find your niche market
Tramp, had the same experience, only is was a rain delay at wrigley and I drank too much old style! Fun day.

There are many pool matches (old and newer) to be found on YouTube. If you don't have a smart TV, get a streaming box that has the YouTube box and watch on demand.

For fitness types, the Crossfit Games are going on now.

For fitness types/sports types/patriatic types, the Olympics are in a couple of weeks.

Can't even fill the field of 64 for a so called US Open and it's time for pool on TV,

Maybe it can't be filed because it's not on TV?

Let's see...I'm going to fly a production crew to Qatar and back, plus all their gear, plus hotels and food, and MAYBE a couple thousand people will view it?

And BTW, I can't stop the game for a commercial break because I'm not allowed to break the players' rhythm.

It's the easiest decision a television programmer will ever make.

Whenever people talk about our local franchises my favorite saying is " The Brewers can leave town and take the Bucks with them" As long as we have the Packers for fall/winter and racing in the summer Im good.

With the names on the list so far I don't think it would matter if there were 464. Pool is on my TV all the time, Google Chromecast. lol. But I think pool is deserving of cable air time, absolutely.
