We Hold This Lock of the Week to Be Self-Evident

Florida-Alabama did not turn out to be quite as good as game as had been advertised, so I did a bit of remote-clicking last night.

By my count, there were six different FBS college football games on the Verizon Fios cable system of Lexington, Mass. at 8:30 p.m, including such surefire ratings dynamite in the New England market as Texas Tech-Iowa State. Next week's Nielsen book will show its usual low-to-so-low-as-to-be-unmeasurable ratings for all of those games.

Hang the ratings! Journalism is service, no matter who you're serving. Each autumn Saturday reminds us there's never been a better time for compulsive gamblers in our nation's history.
