KANSAS CITY, Mo. - What's more American than football? Baseball or democracy might take the cake. On Monday night, all types of Americana will fight for attention in prime-time.
It’s an all-out battle of the airwaves.
TV viewers all over the country will choose between Monday Night Football, the game that will decide which baseball team plays in the World Series and the final presidential debate.
People all over the country will wrestle with the channel choices. The variety of Americana could pit brothers against sisters, and husband against wives. Control of the remote will be highly coveted.
Needless to say, 41 Action News didn't have to look too far to find folks right here in Kansas City who will take part in Monday’s battle of the airwaves.
"I'll turn my TV to split screen, half and half, so I can watch both and then put the presidential debate up here because I need to know what’s going on in the world,” Daniel Starr described as he built a pizza at Santora’s Pizza.
"I've been a Cardinal fan all my life and want to see them go to the World Series two years in a row,” said Mechanic Roy Campbell, explaining why he would be sticking to Game 7 of the National League Championship Series on Monday night.
"I'll probably be the one going into the other room to watch sports. My wife is all about political debates,” said Greg Wald, owner of All Nationals Flag Company.
As you can imagine, Wald’s flag company is, by nature, patriotic. But on Monday, there is nothing more American for Wald than football and baseball on the same night.
“That's what makes the jump button on your remote so great. You can use that between commercials, and when one TV doesn't have the game on, you can go flip it to the other," he said laughing.
As you head home for the day to watch some Monday night television, know there are plenty of viewers out there who will be channel surfing just like you.
