Atlanta Falcons Lose Out To Awful Jaws Sequel
by Dave the Falconer on Aug 22, 2008 11:09 AM EDT

Through no fault of their own, the Atlanta Falcons keep finding new lows to plummet through, kinda like a rhino through a pagoda.

This time it's the NFL's typically arcane policy on games that don't sell out. Specifically, the rule says that if a pre-season game doesn't put enough butts in the seat, local television stations can show it on tape delay or ruin themselves financially by buying all remaining unsold tickets and broadcasting the game live.

So as a result, MyNetworkTV affiliate WATL is showing the game at 10 p.m. EST, with the Falcons now suffering the embarrassment of running after Jaws: The Revenge, which is an affront to decent, movie-loving Americans everywhere. Further proof that for all the wonderful things it does for fans, the NFL's TV policies could use a huge overhaul.

On the plus side, after following one of the bigger bombs in movie history, the Falcons should look pretty terrific Friday night.

Maverick at the Movies is now Sounds of Cinema

Starting this weekend, Maverick at the Movies becomes Sounds of Cinema!

Since its inception in May 2004, this show was recorded and broadcast from 89.7 KMSU FM 'The Maverick' in Mankato, Minnesota. As of now, the program will be recorded at 89.5 KQAL FM in Winona and broadcast from both stations, so a name change was in order. Aside from a few aesthetic changes to the show, the format will remain the same.

Sounds of Cinema can be heard every Sunday at 11am (CST) on 89.7 KMSU FM in south central Minnesota and across the world at KMSU's website. The show can be heard Sunday 4:05pm (CST) on 89.5 KQAL FM in southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin and across the world on KQAL's website. A new website will be on the way in the near future, but for now full text reviews, play lists, and other supplementary information can be found at .
