Meteorologist Is Offended You Savages Would Rather Watch Sports Instead Of Weather

The FOX affiliate in the Twin Cities was forced to field a bunch of angry calls on Sunday after they chose to show the second half of the Champion’s League final in a tiny box without sound. The reason they minimized one of the more important sporting events in the world? A rainstorm.

Yep, it was raining a lot in farmlands south of the cities, so FOX 9 showed Man U/Barca in a soundless picture-in-picture display. Predictably, they had to deal with a bunch of mad soccer fans who were wondering why they were getting thrown under the bus during the biggest game of the year. This reaction did not sit well with weatherman Tim Blotz.

You’re going to watch the double box, and you’re gonna like it!

    Boy’s just lucky it wasn’t NASCAR finals or he would’ve gotten death threats.

    So he took his ball and went home.  Yes weather is important but it aint everything.  The Station made a mistake.

    This is an all-too-typical attitude among the elitist media types. Any program can be interrupted even if they have scrolls, radars and beeping warnings about “storms” a hundred miles from the main viewing site. There is the Weather Channel, NOAA Weather Radio and the Internet, although you would never know it listening to these hollywood wanna-bes. But the Minute a Commercial comes on, Just hope there won’t be a severe storm in your area for the next several minutes because the scrolls, radars and the rest disappear pronto.
