"We created the DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl four years ago on a small patch of South Beach as a way to celebrate our dominance in the sport and give something back to the fans and our customers. It's been amazing to see how both DIRECTV and this event have grown considerably in size and popularity since then, and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever."

Well that sux, I thought it would be a cool idea for D* to do to cover those with D* that don't have locals available to them.

I think the CBS affiliates and the NAB would have a stroke.

I watched a few minutes of the beach game thing last year, didn't find it real special and moved on.
