I caught a little bit of the Tour de France on OLN today during my lunch bread, and what do I see but a self-advertisement promoting their 8-ball Billiards finale on Sunday. Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but I seem to remember that most people play billiards indoors. Oh well, I can forgive them just this once…
And them moments later they air another self-promo for their fall lineup, which includes NHL hockey and it looked like Arena Football, both which are played indoors as well. Am I the only one who sees a problem with this.
If you're going to have a niche TV network, lets stick to that niche, or change the name of the network. Maybe they could just change it to OSN (The Other Sports Network). Then they could try to compete with ESPN for the weird sports shows, like VIKING: The Ultimate Obstacle Course, competitive eating contests, professional mini golf tournaments, and eventually the bumper pool national championships.
Hey, at worst it would be mildly amusing. And that's more than I can say for OLN right now.
