We have all had a few days to think about the big game and absorb the commercials that were present fully as well. Anyone have any thoughts about things? Well of course I do… Continue reading “Superbowl”
I have seen this problem a lot of late and I am not sure how come it is so recurring of an issue given the simple ability to fix it. The problem is using the same foreground colors as the background color, or at least colors that are close on the color palette.

Can someone please get the announcers under control? It is really minor, but they are supposed to be professionals and that is what makes it so annoying. Anyone listened to a broadcast lately and all the mistakes?
