It's summer, and it's time for all sorts of tournaments. The World Cup is gaining publicity, but still needs some extra reminders and explanations for those of us who don't follow soccer (football, to some readers) and don't have a player in the family. I keep seeing and hearing those explanations, and it helps my interest.
But I've had it with stories about "The U.S. Open" that just go on and say who won, who lost, and don't even mention what sport they are playing. Radio's especially at fault, but not alone.
Sports journalists may find this hard to believe, but there are those out here who don't follow either tennis or golf. (That includes yours truly.)
The courtesy of mentioning the actual sport would be very much appreciated. Make that Seriously appreciated.
