Football and CBS Network Television

  One thing that ticks us off is that every weekend we sit down to watch our favorite TV show on CBS,
"The Amazing Race," and the damned football game before it (and before 60 minutes) always runs over one hour, delaying the program. Getting up at 4:30am for work is a lot harder when your favorite TV show ends at 10pm instead of 9pm.
   Here's what we don't understand: With 100 PLUS channels devoted to sports, don't you think that football could be aired on one of those, to keep programming on a regular schedule for all the non-football fans?
I can understand it if there were just 3 channels as there were in the 1960s when we were kids- not today.
  Just because we don't watch football, and don't care for it doesn't have anything to do with this point- Like our dogs, we like sticking to a schedule. When something upsets it, we get irritated.
  So, to CBS, ABC and NBC networks- Let the sports channels air football, baseball, basketball, hockey, etc. THAT'S why they're there, right?

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
