Forget ESPN, let’s help the Montanans get to Gameday in Missoula

A Montana lawmaker is working on a bill to try to bring ESPN’s “GameDay” to Montana. Cool. But shouldn’t our Montana legislators be working to make it easier for Montanans to get to GameDay?

That was my reaction when I heard the news that a Missoula lawmaker was working on legislation that would encourage ESPN to come to Missoula for GameDay. Before the Cat-Griz game in Missoula last year, the idea had a lot of support on social media. The two US senators from Montana, a Democrat and a Republican, have also jumped on the bandwagon.

Let’s see if we can bring ESPN to Bozeman for Cat-Griz this year, or to Missoula for Cat-Griz next year. Great. But here’s my problem: how many Montanans, who don’t live in Bozeman or Missoula, would like to go to either college town for a game, but can’t afford it because of the high prices of the game? gasoline and inflation? Let’s be honest, the price of everything is out of control. No wonder people doing the college games these days are starting to chant “Let’s Go Brandon.”

Want to bring GameDay to Montana? So bring your A-game on Tuesday, November 8, and vote for the candidates who will work to keep more of YOUR money in YOUR pocket. Vote for candidates who will lower gas prices with Made in America and Made in Montana energy.

Here’s video from last year as Republican and Democratic state senators teamed up to try to recruit ESPN in Montana.
