Spare Us Human Interest, Let's Go Back to the Game

October 19, 1985

Does the watching of an important ball game on TV have to include the constant close-up camera shots of the players doing the following: (1) blowing bubble gum, (2) spitting non-stop, (3) cleaning their noses, and (4) making assorted gestures and facial contortions.

Most of these fellows are not exactly photogenic specimens. We can see much of the same at the San Diego zoo. Please, Mr. Director, spare us the "human interest" camera angles and give us back the game.
