Rich Eisen, host of the NFL Network's NFL Total Access will be at the Borders Books and Music in Preston Royal tonight at 7, signing copies of his new book titled, um, Total Access: A Journey to the Center of the NFL Universe. And he's bringing with him his little buddy, Deion Sanders, currently serving as analyst on NFL Game Day -- which is like, tomorrow, right?
Speaking of, locals worried they won't be able to see the Cowboys-Packers game due to the league's slugfest with cable companies over the NFL Network's pricing need not worry. The NFL Network feed will be carried on KDFI-Channel 27, which promises a high-def broadcast. And for those who wanna turn down the TV and turn up the radio broadcast with Babe Laufenberg and Brad Sham, here's how you do it: Satellite and HD viewers should dial up KTCK-AM (The Ticket, 1310), while cable and broadcast-TV watchers are advised to tune into KKZN-FM (The Bone, 93.3). Or, says The Ticket's site, if neither sync up, "Here's a hint, use your DVR to match it perfectly."
