Long, long ago, in a lifetime far, far away, I used to work in TV sports production. My husband still does, although he doesn’t work on live events any more. When we watch TV sports at home, we’re not just watching the action. We’re watching “the show.” In more recent years, I’ve become more aware of the storytelling thread running through live events, both the short stories and the larger plot arcs, as well as the “characters” involved.
Anyway, here are some of the things I liked in the TV coverage of the 2013 Kentucky Derby. Maybe you noticed some of them, too?
