All year long my alma mater, Wichita State University, has been promoting the twitter hashtag #WATCHUS. A great marketing idea and I believe it’s made the Shocker nation stronger this year. However, for the first time in my life I have actually listened to more Shocker games than I have watched.
Reason 1: In 2010 Kristen and I decided to cancel our cable subscription. A decision that was certainly tough at the beginning, but now it’s really not that big of a deal. We get our entertainment and news through the web, netflix, or hulu. Significantly cheaper and less time in front of the television than we did before. That decision only hurts when we can’t access the cable channel that shows the Wichita State games. I have dilligently tried to find good avenues through the internet and got stonewalled so many times that i gave up.
Reason 2: In 2010 Kristen and I decided to let our season tickets go. With a second child in the house both time and money kept us from making the games. Hurts every home game!
Reason 3: Have missed home game opportunities with friends due to work travel.
