My condolences to your family - I spent many a night listening to John Ferguson and Walter Hill broadcast LSU games. I once literally drove to the top of a mountain in southern Colorado so I could pick up WWL and listen to a game.
Ferguson would always start the game by saying..."thanks Walter and...

Heard him give a speech once in Houston and he was bragging about how much money he gives to his alma mater, OSU. He said as a kid he wanted to go to A&M but they wouldn't give him a scholarship so he went to OSU, so they get his money. He was really sticking it to A&M and the Aggies in the audience...

The idea is a great one but w/o massive government subsidies, the cost to ride would not make it economical.
