Forget about Democratic sellouts, Republican obstructionists, and anyone else you might be angry at right now, and start figuring out how to take revenge against the worst people in the world: Whoever has been in charge at CBS Sports this weekend.
Yesterday I watched almost every minute of Washington blowing out New Mexico - a welcome sight, to be sure, but rather dull - while Northern Iowa was pulling off a spectacular upset of Kansas. CBS showed a grand total of about three minutes of the Northern Iowa-Kansas second half. At one point, CBS switched to that game in time for us to see Johnny Moran's three-pointer that put NI ahead 59-53 with 4:07 left, then went BACK to the blowout, only returning in the final minute!
Today, CBS showed exactly ZERO seconds of the second half of 12th-seeded Cornell stunning upset of 4th-seeded Wisconsin. Granted, it was a blowout - but the FACT that it was a blowout was amazing. They bounced around between three other games; they couldn't even give us a TASTE of what my kid brother described as the Battle of the Frozen Liberal College Towns? CORNELL, for goodness' sake! In the SWEET SIXTEEN!
Corporate greed is bad enough; corporate incompetence of this magnitude is inexcusable. Fans of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but Greg Gumbel!
