The Mountain West finally gets a TV deal...


Editor's note: the Mountain West still does not have a TV deal set in. This is a story based of this statement in a previous story:

In other words, we have natural beauty, not football, people want to see beauty, therefore we should find a contract with the Travel Channel.

"Hi there everyone, and welcome to COLLEGE FOOTBALL SATURDAY on the Travel Channel! Today, October 13th, 2012, we've traveled to Laramie, Wyoming to watch Air Force Academy Falcons, take on the University of Wyoming Cowboys. I'm your host Bert Kreischer and with me as always is Adam Richman. Samantha Brown will be joining us shortly."

"Before the kickoff, lets take a minute to look at this beautiful geography! Sam, why don't you tell us where you are."

"Well Bert, I haven't made it to the field yet. I've been looking at some great architecture as the nostalgia has brought me back to the Wild West. Just take a look at the downtown area!"

/PICTURE FOCUSES ON DOWNTOWN LARAMIE

"Wow, Sam, that is some great architecture and looks like we'll have to hit it after the game! Lets go back to the game action now. It appears Air Force has tried a running play, and...YES, they get a thing called a first down! What do you think Adam?"

"JUST LIKE HOW I LIKE TO TAKE MY SANDWICHES, BERT! STRAIGHT TO THE GUT WITH VERY LITTLE STOPPING ME! BY THE WAY, HAVE YOU TRIED THE ALTITUDE CHOPHOUSE AND BREWERY? THEIR 16 OUNCE PRIME RIB WAS AWESOME!"

"Interesting Adam, and back to game action...and YES, Air Force gets a touch...down. What's a Touchdown? For that we go to our football specialist Dhani Jones, Dhani?"

"Really? A touchdown is where the offense scores 6 points on the defense..."

"Thanks Dhani, with this 'touchdown' and OH WAIT, THEY GET AN EXTRA POINT TO SCORE! It is 7-0 Air Force. Dhani, can Wyoming make up this very large deficit?"

"That's it, I quit."

/Dhani Jones leaves the programming

"Well, it looks like we're having technical difficulties, Sam what else can you tell us about Laramie and the surrounding areas?"

"Well Bert, Laramie is located between the Snowy and Laramie ranges. It sits over 7000 feet above sea level, making War Memorial Stadium, where the Cowboys play, the highest place in the US to play football."

"Speaking of football, lets go back to the action and the first quarter has ended with the score being, Wyoming 14 and Air Force 14. That's a lot of scoring, isn't it Adam?"

"YOU KNOW IT IS BERT, AND THAT REMINDS ME OF THE SCORE I HAVE TO SETTLE LATER TONIGHT WITH THE PAUL BUNYAN BURGER OVER AT THE LIBRARY SPORTS GRILLE AND BREWERY. ONE FULL POUND BURGER WITH OTHER STUFF..."

"Hate to cut you off there, but we have an interesting thing going on down on the field. Apparently, the game has resumed. Well what do you know? I'm sorry folks, I'm not used to broadcasting for more than 22 minutes at a time, so this is just completely new for me. The Cowboys, (they're in yellow right?) have thrown the ball and it is CAUGHT! Well this is unbelievable: the player who caught the ball, is now running towards the end of the field, and HE MAKES ANOTHER TOUCHDOWN! Add that funny extra point rule again, and the score is now 21-14! Well this is pretty cool. Sam, you got a chance to interview Dan Christensen, what did he say?"

"That's Dave Christensen Bert, and he was extremely rude. When I asked him what he thought of downtown Laramie, he just said, 'we need to focus on the game right now, and later we can interview downtown.' It's like all he cares about right now is winning this football game."

"THAT'S A SHAME SAM AND BERT, BECAUSE THERE ARE SOME GREAT RESTAURANTS DOWNTOWN. I UNDERSTAND YOU HAVE TO FOCUS ON THE GAME, BUT WHO CAN DENY THE UNIQUENESS AND GREAT ATMOSPHERE THAT LARAMIE PROVIDES?"

"Gonna cut you off again Adam, it seems like we have a couple of games finishing. Nevada and UNLV just finished along with Fresno State and Boise State."

"I LOVE VEGAS BERT, BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE THAT SAME KIND OF HOMETOWN FEELING THAT BOISE DOES. BOISE ALSO HAD ONE OF THE MOST INTENSE CHALLENGES THAT I EVER DID ON MAN VS. FOOD. IT WAS A 5 POUND BURGER WITH CHILI ON TOP AL..."

"Hate to cut you off again, Adam, but it looks like the players and coaches are leaving the field. And now the band is coming on! I didn't expect to see this kind of culture at a football game. So with that, we'll cut to commercial break. When we come back we'll talk a little bit about Air Force's home town: Colorado Springs."

Let's hope this never happens.
