Fridays With Uncle Fred 6/07/2013

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 04:13 PM CDT

We spent the morning talking about what Austin is talking about on Twitter and Facebook:


At the top of the list is the NBA Finals and specifically "our" San Antonio Spurs.  Folks in Austin love to claim the Spurs as our own especially when they're winning.  The series returns to San Antonio next week with available tickets going for $250-$750 face value.


We also noted the caustic comments on Facebook after reports that the National Security Agency has been poking into what everyday Americans say on Facebook, Twitter, etc.  Most said they have nothing to hide, but it's the principal of the thing.


And lastly, we mentioned Broadway's Tony Awards which will be broadcast by CBS and KEYE TV this Sunday, June 9, at 7:00 p.m.  The awards show caps what has been a down season on broadway.  Attendance was down 6%.  Some of that may have to do with ticket prices.  Top shows commanded $150-$200 or more per seat.
