Stadium and Main: No Sparties Allowed in the 15th Congressional District

No Sparties Allowed in the 15th Congressional District

You know it's the middle of the summer when there are 17 Michigan bloggers all posting about a cable TV channel. Representative John Dingell apparently doesn't want to be left out. And at first glance, I thought he kinda snubbed MSU in this passage:
"I have been approached by numerous constituents, all of whom share the same complaint," Dingell says in the letter. "They are concerned about the local availability of University of Michigan football games since none of the Michigan cable systems carry the Big Ten Network (BTN). While I understand the motivation on the part of the Big Ten Conference and its member schools to create a new all-Big Ten cable channel, I am increasingly concerned about the migration of previously free, over the air content to a pay television tier."
But, really, the 15th District is Wolverine country, so props to Dingell (can you say his name without chuckling?) for representing his constituents. This whole fiasco is better than a soap opera, but just as pointless. 2 more months...
