For almost a week now, I’ve had access to the Big Ten Network on my cable system.
Saturday night, had I chosen, I could have watched Indiana play Murray State in football. I instead chose to watch something else, I don’t remember what. Probably a college football game with two Division I-A teams instead of one.
It’s 11:15 p.m. Monday as I type this, and what’s on the BTN but a replay of a men’s soccer game between Penn State and Bucknell. OH MY! SOMEONE JUST STOLE THE BALL AND ALMOST HAD A SHOT ON GOAL!
Bucknell is ahead 1-0 with 26:34 left in the second half and I can’t take the suspense. I’m going to find the final score on the Internet.
OH NO! BUCKNELL WON, 2-0!
Wisconsin Campus Programming is on at 3 a.m. But I’ll be asleep by then, even if it requires hitting myself in the head several times with a ball-peen hammer to get it done.
