Today's Kansas-Missouri Border War clash was one of the day's most anticipated games, and though it wasn't a particularly great game, it was definitely one of the more interesting college basketball matchups. So pre-empting the game in one of the fiefdoms of our nation full of both Jayhawks fans and Tigers supporters was not a good idea, even if the explanation given by Kansas City's KCTV5 was, um, bright:â†µ
KCTV and CBS would like to apologize for the pre-empting of the Border Showdown. CBS Sports experienced Satellite isses due to Sun Spots.
That explanation's already drawn cynicism, refutation, and mirth on Twitter, but it's about the best we've got so far. And I, for one, wish I had thought of blaming sunspots for lost homework in high school.â†µ
As for the game? Kansas won, 70-66, earning the Big 12's regular season championship. Viewers may remember that as the second-most important detail of this game.
