Television Alternatives For the Broken-Bracketed

It’s Saturday morning, Ducks fans!  There is reason to rejoice as our beloveds are still alive in the NCAA Tournament.  Later today, the Ducks take on the Wisconsin Badgers in a second-round match-up that Wisconsin fans have been awaiting ever since a certain Rose Bowl.  Badger fans are FIRED UP for this, baby!

Ma and Pa Kettle in line early for tickets.

But what happens if we *gulp* lose?  What if our season is over, and our bracket is broken into a million pieces?  It was still a very fine season, and the envy of our Northwest rivals, but you might just want to watch something that isn’t The Tournament this weekend.  But what?

Is there anything to watch?

Is there anything to watch?

That’s why you have me around.  To find the hidden gems in television broadcasting.  So here are a few ideas for this weekend:

The Lorenzo Romar Story:  Reggie Jackson was Mr. October.  Jerry West was Mr. Clutch.  Pat Morita was Mr. Miyagi.  Watch at 6:30 p.m. Pacific Time as Ion TV presents the story of the 2013-14 Washington Huskies.

"Lo"

“Lo?  Is that you?”

Hoop Glory:  It may be barely basketball, but the story of Oregon State’s Phoenix-like rise from the vanquished and humiliated Duck Chow, to participants in the AFL/CIO (or whatever it was called) is worth examining through the eyes of legendary producer John Waters.

See the rapt expressions on the faces of OSU fans as they packed the Charlie Sitton Bleachers near Ralph Miller Court in the bowels of Gill Coliseum to watch their team in a battle of the ages against . . . Radford?  Lifetime Movie Network presents at 11 a.m. PT.

"For the love of God, More Chainsaw"

“For the love of God, more chainsaw.”

The FishDuck Chronicles:  Is it time for football yet?  As a matter of fact, it is.  National Geographic has reached into the archives of our football tutorials to answer the question, “What makes Oregon’s offense so good?”

Is it luck, like Steve ‘the-drubbing-we-took-isn’t-indicative-of-the-difference-between-these-teams’ Sarkisian would have us believe?

Nope.

Is it because we cheat, as Oregon State dearly hoped would be the case?

Negative, captain.

So what is it then?

Yeah baby!

Yeah, baby!

Go Ducks!  Belt the Badgers!
