Much to my surprise, in January the Lexington Herald-Leader published a 700-word op-ed that I wrote that was harshly critical of the advertising industry.
My op-ed was basically a rant about how much I dislike the new electronic “ribbon board” advertising display inside Commonwealth Stadium. For those who have not yet seen this high-tech monstrosity, it is a lighted LED billboard around the fascia of the upper deck of the stadium. This space was previously used to honor famous UK football players and coaches such as Bear Bryant, Art Still, Tim Couch and George Blanda. It was called the “Ring of Honor.”
