antidisestablishmentarianism: Will the Drew grace us with his presence?


If Drew comes here, I am leaving ... actually probably getting outta here anyhow since I can barely stand to watch the next game. I don't want to care too much, and if things go bad, I don't want to hear my wife's pain.... Maybe it's time to rewatch Deep Space Nine tonight.


/Go Bucky.

Earguy: DrBenway: This "Teamcast" business blows.

What is it exactly?


In addition to the "normal" national broadcast, they've also got team-centric versions telecast on TNT and Tru TV. I had a feed of the Gator Teamcast, and I'm not even sure if a Florida fan would have preferred that.

I watched TNT not knowing it was elsewhere, and I didn't hear a whole lot of Florida homers with it, other than interviewing every famous Gator fan in the stands.

I was considering going down to Water tonight, but trying to drive out of that mess afterward seems like a bad, bad idea.

As usual, it's actually better in Canada. We have only had to stream one game.

BTW Thanks  Earguy. This cool kid is all stressed out!!

Nice. I remember being in high school and it was pretty incredible, even though none of my friends really cared. It was a great run.

When did they sign that deal? Didn't Doug Gottlieb leave ESPN for CBS so he could do tournament games? (allegedly anyway) Pretty funny if it's turned out he's shut out of the Final Four.

"In 1995, the association and CBS began a contract extension for $1.725 billion through the 2002 tournament, followed by an 11-year, $6 billion deal. In 2010, Turner Broadcasting System joined CBS on a 14-year, $10.8 billion agreement packaging TV, Internet and multimedia rights"

Yeah, looks that way. I've watched just enough to be confused by all the incestiness, but it's finally making sense to me.

Well, except for the parts where it doesn't.

Listening to Westwood One's audio now. Is there no human interest angle that can't be flogged until it's a grotesque pulp? Sheesh, enough with Coach Ryan's dad, how 'bout it?

I like the notion of a Kentucky-centric broadcast of the UK/Wisconsin game, but I don't know if I can take 2 1/2 hours of Rob Bromley and Rex Chapman.
 
2014-04-05 09:04:33 PM  
OK, I did the dishes, they are done. I am free to watch this game. What is this horrible retrospective with the horrid music we are watching??

Oh, nevermind, now we are doing the "History of the Buzzer Beater". *sigh*

They won't even stream that. I am looking at a black TV, watching the wife play fable on the other one, and piling random remotes and shiat on a sleeping cat to see how much it takes to wake him up. I mean for farking real why can't they even stream the pregame show?
