The traffic seemed a bit subdued Sunday, but you can't blame the marching jazz band that brought showgoers onto the floor. That trumpet player was terrific. You also had to love seeing Turner booth personnel tossing attendees peanuts and beer (yes, we said beer) to tout its baseball coverage. And wasn't RFD TV's mechanical bull manned by some excellent-looking ranch hands, in skintight chaps and boots. More booth ladies were present at The Sportsman Channel's venue, as a pair of beauties herded folks in to play Fish and Chips. High tech was Weather Channel's Weather Wall, which let folks broadcast their own weather report with visuals in the background and then have it downloaded to the Internet. On the slower side, BlueHighways TV had its picket fence, lemonade and founder Stan Hitchcock serenading on guitar. Perhaps the best floor sight was Ralph Roberts walking the boards, and looking great.
