Air DCI World Finals on TV

To whom it may concern,

Marching bands are icons in various parades, ceremonies, and highschool/college football games across the nation. However more often than not halftime during football games the bands are ignored by sportscasters, and programming turns away from the show the marching band is performing. After recent twitter remark by Jim Rome,  a CBS Sports employee, it threw the marching band and drum corps community into a riot. Calling band kids "dorks" and insulting them to over 1.3 million follwers is not how we would expect a grown man to act. In response, we would like a chance for Drum Corps International's World Championship Finals to be aired on CBS this fall. We believe that helping promote the marching arts is a step forward in the right direction, with both sports and the arts being supported.
