Whatever happened to newspapers?

Remember when we used to get our sports from a newspaper, do they still exist?

    They sure do but on a much less scale, my local paper only prints Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

    I remember the best day for the paper was Monday with all the stats from Sunday football

    I have an opinion on your question DD, but it has nothing to do with the sports world and I'll keep it at that.

    Back in the day I used to buy my local newspaper a lot, but with the the rise of internet there's really no point these days. I can just about do everything online, shop, get sports news, play video games, listen to music. I used to go to the movies a lot but now I just wait for the movie to be streamed, it's crazy how the internet has taken over.

    Newspapers are dying fast like the dodo bird.. The price is up to $2 weekdays and $3 for Sunday. There is only day old news in them anymore. My subscription to the Albuquerque journal runs out this month and I will not be renewing it.

    No, I'm sorry but I can't do that, I must stay at home and keep myself plugged in to the latest developments on a certain NFL quarterback. This is where I'm most comfortable, this is where I belong.

    My cellphone is my newspaper

    As much as I loved grabbing a coffee and unfolding the Paper I have to say that the cellphone is so much more enjoyable, you can't beat it

    Just as "Video killed the Radio Star" the internet has spelled the eventual demise of Newsprint. I still get the occasional phone call from the local paper offering a subscription but like everyone else I read online if there's something I need to know. I had a paper route as a teenager and the biggest days were always Sunday and Wednesday with Thursday being the most advertisements included. After my Father retired he took a part time job to stay active as a Tour Guide for the largest area paper, interesting work since they had recently automated a new plant.

    I much prefer looking at the Sports section laid out on a table or holding it in my hands but there is a certain convenience to looking online.

    Back in 1996 I was working for a demolition company, I was in a school taking out the ceiling and I busted through a ceiling tile and got to the top.of my ladder and poked my head through and within arms reach there was a paper cup, a crushed out cigarette butt and a newspaper from 1960, it was pretty cool, I imagine a construction worker was taking a break and just didn't bother cleaning up after and just left it there and put the ceiling up

    #LetsGoSwitzerlandThe Man Who Does Not Read Has No Advantage Over the Man Who Cannot Read. The biggest obstacle to progress is a habit of “buying what we want and begging for what we need.”You get the Freedom you fight for and get the Oppression you deserve.
