skiing on the radio?

Am I missing something

Skiing...the Wiggles...it is all coming together for Sirius.
It is all about CONTENT!

Exactly what I was thinking.
Content is King! Content is King!

w00t w00t!!!! i get to hear the ringing cowbells of FIS racing!!!

now, sirius finally has something to compete with the birds chirping on XM's PGA Tour channel!!!

i wonder who's gonna win the bid for the 2008 World Chess Championships?

i'm kinda bummed that no one's picked up coverage of the annual Punkin Chunkin though...that'd be scintilating radio. maybe everyone's too busy on the merger this year...maybe next year?

save your money on Peek-a-boo Street and cowbells and spend it on getting content.
Like...i don't know...someone in talk radio that someone will listen to...say

Jim Rome

How is his show not simucast on one of the sat rad platforms?

Just tell me when Sirius signs the Canadian Curling League. ...

where's the Bode channel at? i mean, listening to Bode on a bender sniffing coke down the entire length his Head skiis or smoking budd out of a skiboot-turned-bong would be quality entertainment not to be missed.

c'mon Sirius...get with the program here. this is what people WANT.

I think this is awesome. Finally some good coverage for alpine skiiing!!!!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :-)

A bill such as the one proposed in Connecticut "allows you to control the people who are willing to be controlled" but is unlikely to make much of a difference otherwise, Pete Lindstrom, an analyst at Midvale, Utah- based Burton Group, told Vijayan." The notion of the predator is getting lost here. Are we trying to validate the kids who are underage trying to act overage, or the overage adults trying to act like they are underage?"
