I love watching sports. On the weekend, I'll watch almost anything that is on TV. I live for the playoffs... baseball, hockey, and especially football. My 6 year old son is a car racing fan... and I'm becoming one. But, I have yet to see a 16:9 set that was watchable for 4:3 non-HD broadcast sports. The various full screen modes are just not satisfactory for sports. The stretch modes make a running back running accross the screen look fat, then OK, then fat again. The zoom mode chops off the stats and scores which appear at the top and bottom of the screen. It seems that most sports for the coming years will continue to be in plain old non-HD format. Does that doom me to doing most of my weekend viewing on my 16:9 set in a 4:3 box with borders??? Unless, CBS somehow wins the bidding on all sports, I fear we are doomed to many more years of mostly non-HD sports. What do you think??? ------------------ Take Care, merc ---------------- DFAST, 5C, DVI, HDCP, SafeAudio, Macrovision and Lewinski!!!
