Soak it up you junkie
Not having DirecTV is looking like a really bad idea right now. Mad props to Brett Hansen of Fox Sports Net for sending me the schedule of this weekend's delirious college football preview. For those of you in the Grand Canyon State, I am jealous. Per Hansen's email:
The 2007 college football season is close to beginning once again and this Saturday, Aug. 18, FSN Arizona gets its viewers set for kick-off by airing seven-and-half consecutive hours of programming devoted strictly to the Arizona State University and University of Arizona football programs.
It’s FSN Arizona’s first-ever “Rewind Marathon,” featuring replays of each of last season’s Qwest Wildcat Rewind and Qwest Sun Devil Rewind shows that showcased wins for the two teams. The half-hour shows will air in their entirety in back-to-back fashion and conclude with respective 2007 season preview shows. The Rewind programs are FSN Arizona’s popular productions that condense the team’s previous football game into a half-hour review with exclusive field level camera angles and locker room access while using the UA and ASU home radio calls.
...FSN Arizona has the same type of marathon planned for ASU football when it airs four consecutive hours of programming devoted to only the Sun Devils. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. the network will replay every Sun Devil Rewind show from 2006 that showcased a Devils wins, including triumphs over NAU, Nevada, Colorado, Stanford, Washington, Washington State and Arizona. The seven show marathon concludes with the 2007 Arizona State Sun Devils College Football Preview show that starts at 10 p.m.
I obviously cut the part about the UA programming because I don't want to promote anything of theirs. And not to nitpick or anything, but I wouldn't call very many of ASU's wins "triumphant." Actually I think Nevada (8-4 in 2006) was the best team that fell to ASU...were we really that bad last year?
