Two Bee or Not Two Bee

Two Bee or Not Two Bee

It was refreshing to see the Scripps National Spelling Bee receive so much attention this week.  Between that and Roland Garros, will have watched more ESPN in two weeks than the rest of the year.

Something else didn’t happen this week.  After leading the network news broadcasts, a report that more than 500 former NFL players were suing the league for promoting a drug culture all but disappeared.  I should have been surprised that even made news for a day; anyone would have to be willfully blind not to have realized that is going on.  It was interesting to note that day neither CNN (CNN-SI) nor FOX News (I believe Fox has some sort of affiliation with pro football?) featured the item on their web pages.

Perhaps this, combined with the concussion settlement and whatever comes next, will at least force reconsideration of  priorities.  Probably  not.
