Chad has written about sports on TV for both Sports Illustrated and the now-defunct National sports daily. He uses the same technique to skewer TV sports as Ross Perot uses on politicians: offer a little praise to let folks know you're objective, then slap the snot out of the suckers. The spread of cable has spawned a nation of TV sports junkies, but what they watch is, frankly, often crap. Sometimes the sports themselves are at fault-truck pulls and celebrity competitions, for example-and sometimes it's announcers.
