East Coast tunes out the Bears

It was supposed to be the game of the year, perhaps even a preview of the Super Bowl. When I talked to my son Don who lives in northern Virginia and was watching the Bears-New England game, I was him (sarcasm) if he was enjoying it. 

He said he wasn't even watching it. Because CBS had switched in the middle from it to broadcasting the Dolphins-Jets game. Says it all.

  • Well, Dolphins-Jets was AFC East.

    The Northern Viginia area basically is interested only in NFC East, such as Redskins and Eagles.

    For that matter, I don't think anyone in this area is interested in any of the AFC, except perhaps Indianapolis, except when the NFC North plays them.

    Given that the Patriots-Bears game was pretty much over at half time, this was expected.
