I'm watching the early early pregame festivities. The CBS digital feed is alive, but it's all upconverted 4:3 and windowboxed with blue graphics on the sides. And then the "Phil Simms All Iron Team" show comes on at 1pm EST. Almost all of this preproduced program is 16:9, then letterboxed to fit 4:3, then upconverted and windowboxed back to 16:9. And if you're watching it on a 4:3 set as I am, it's letterboxed one more time. I've got black bars stacked on top of black bars and blue bars. Joe Fullscreen, watching it on his analog TV, has to put up with the black bars he hates so much. Ironically, if Joe Fullscreen buys a widescreen HDTV set to get "the big picture" without black bars, he ends up with a postage stamp sized picture with bars on all four sides. I don't think it can get more stupider than that.
