Wow, this was a topic for us 4 years ago when we first started Postgame show, but we can revisit.
- 1. It’s a television broadcast where people are inviting us into their homes, so we are expected to look nice.
- 2. Most other Postgame show hosts wear a coat and tie because it brings a bit of class to the broadcast. Personally the few that I’ve seen where they were wearing polo shirts looked schlocky (is that a word?).
- 3. The shows don’t only air in San Diego, but Las Vegas, Arizona, and now all the other cities that get the MLB package, so we are representing S.D. to the rest of the world, and want to look professional.
- 4. Our bosses tell us to!
Here are some comments form viewers who appreciate the effort:
“Big ups on tonight’s suit…looks sharp.” – Daniel
“Bob, really great to see you again this year and of course our Padres. You and Jenny look superb in your threads.” – Shirley
You’re not alone, Ed. Some people really like the look and appreciate the effort, some don’t. Either way, we truly appreciate you watching the show, and for caring enough to send me an email.
