Tonawanda News — Annually in football, quadrennially in snow-covered events, sport delivers its best to us, and it brings with it the best commercials, the best in television technology, the best in chauvinist bombast.
So observe what it offers, next week and beyond, especially if you’re not a sports fan and wonder why you pay for a dozen or more cable channels you do not regularly watch.
I remember soccer’s World Cup when it was contested in the United States in 1994. It began with a recital by opera’s Three Tenors (Pavarotti, Domingo, Carreras), which I watched on television mostly to see if an opera program could be pulled off in a baseball stadium (Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles). It was pulled off marvelously. I have no idea how the soccer matches turned out.Ed Adamczyk is a Kenmore resident whose column appears Fridays in the Tonawanda News.
