One story that doesn't matter to us

Here's one story that has no place on our Web site or newspaper,
though I placed it there anyway just to show how the half -- or
really, 95 percent -- live.
It is an Associated Press piece on the price of NFL playoff football
tickets, going down actually. Playoff tickets will be about 10
percent cheaper, and though the Super Bowl now features $1,000
tickets, some tickets are going to be cheaper to the big game. This
marks the first time any Super Bowl tickets have seen price cuts, as
1,000 tickets in Tampa will cost between $200 and $500.
But of course, we in the Detroit area still get the playoffs for free
because the only way we watch is if we turn on the TV, because the
Lions aren't anywhere near the playoffs.
Reminds me of the Jim Mora's rant.... "PLAYOFFS?"
