If you watched the telecast of the 49ers-Packers game last Sunday, did you notice that when Greg Jennings scored on a 64-yard TD pass in the second quarter, the camera operator and director were anticipating a Lambeau Leap?

Surprise! Instead of heading immediately for the fans in the stands, Jennings took a moment and knelt on one knee in the end zone. Might he been praying? Don’t know, because the director dumped out of that shot in a hurry. After the commercial break, the network showed the replay of his delayed leap.

The Lambeau Leap is exciting to watch, but there’s a poignancy when a player kneels and possibly prays after a big play — a poignancy that should be incorporated into the telecasts by the producers. Unfortunately, the closest they get to allowing religion into the telecasts is the “Hail Mary pass” cliche.
Speaking of misdirected media, have you listened to Milwaukee’s two “Christmas music” FM radio stations — 95.7 and 99.1? Less variety in their music than in the cereal aisle at Aldi’s. During random listening in less than a week, I heard “Jingle Bell Rock” by the late Bobby Helms seven times.  A nice enough song, but might it not be better for listeners and advertisers who covet those listeners if the stations used different music services so that the rotation of songs and artists would be greater?
