JACKSON CREER, Richland
I think one serious problem with our society is we feel compelled to hook advertising to every athletic event. It annoys me when during the slightest break in a football or basketball game, the station gives us a string of annoying, preachy, and nonsensical advertisments that I really don't have the slightest amount of interest in.
Nowadays, we find a way to link any sporting event to some advertiser and have that overshadow the event itself. If we don't watch ourselves, we will soon have each college bowl game being less than half football and mostly advertising.
