TBS’s NCAA Tournament Selection Show Was An Abomination

I never care too much about March Madness. My old college is keeping up its over-decade-long streak of not being picked on selection Sunday. Nope, my alma mater hasn’t reached the promised land since 2006. There definitely were a few seasons we got snubbed, but this year we just sucked.

So here I am this past Sunday. It’s a lazy Sunday and I’m enjoying the cinematic masterpiece Get Hard with America’s favorite actors Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart on TBS. When the movie ended I was too lazy to change the channel and the NCAA Selection Sunday TV Special came on. Even in the probably three minutes I watched it before turning it off, I noticed something was wrong with the broadcast, and I wasn’t the only one.

What happened? Well, watch, and more importantly listen, for yourself:

At first, I thought it was just the shitty cable connection at my parents’ house, but the audio for the show was just horribly out of sync with the rest of the show. It was like watching one of those really, really old Godzilla movies. You know, the ones where the audio got dubbed over and never matched up with the actors’ lips. Except this time instead of seeing a dinosaur destroy Tokyo, we saw a live studio audience pretend to be excited Kansas received an automatic bid.

That TV special was most irrelevant and unnecessary TV special of all time. Doesn’t the NCAA have enough money that they could have lived without this boring ass, over-glorified TV charade?

Before games that actually matter start, fix your audio and visual problems, TBS. The geeks from my old high school AV club that are stuck in perpetual virginity could have done a better job than you.

Previously known for being the 4th best improv comedian in the state of New Jersey, he enjoyed a brief career in politics by serving on his fraternity's eboard until a scandal not as bad as the Lewinsky scandal, but more memorable than Whitewater lead to his resignation. Now, he spends his time making God awful jokes in chapter meetings, rooting for a shitty New Jersey hockey team, and serving on the congressional committee set to determine whether Oprah Winfrey should be classified as a cult or a religion.
