Mack In, Reds Out In Bottom Of 9th

Barring an unforeseen catastrophe, Chris Mack will be the next head basketball coach at Xavier. With A.D. Mike Bobinski set to make the recommendation to the university president, the rest is a formality. The president and the board have to abide by Bobinski's pick, or the university will be looking for a new basketball coach and a new A.D. If they don't rubber-stamp the A.D.'s pick, then why have an A.D.? Bobinski is highly regarded inside and outside the Xavier community, and he's earned the sterling reputation. Mack has earned a shot at the Xavier job, and now he'll get it.

So the Reds are trying to finish off the Brewers in the bottom of the 9th inning of an exciting 1 run game. All of a sudden the game switches to the "Best Locker Room Outbursts" on FSN. NOT AGAIN!!! The same thing happened back in December in the waning seconds of regulation in U.C.'s overtime win in basketball against Eastern Kentucky. We missed a thrilling alley-oop dunk by Yancy Gates to send the game to overtime. We also missed the entire overtime. Back then they blamed some automated switching system. I don't know the particulars of how it happened this time, I just know it's aggravating. We all make mistakes in this business but I need to vent. First of all it should never happen, second of all it was a one run game in the bottom of the 9th, and thirdly we get the "Best Locker Room Outbursts"! That thing has aired more than reruns of M*A*S*H. If FSN wants a new, improved, fresh outburst to add to that show, videotape me the next time FSN switches away from the end of an exciting game!
