Welcome back to BracketRacket, the one-stop shopping place for all your NCAA needs.
Today, Patrick Carney of The Black Keys drops by to explain why the loss by his beloved Akron Zips won’t leave him a lonely boy, Rick Pitino’s horse fills out a bracket, and Harvard busts everyone else’s, though not necessarily in that order. We also brandish six-shooters _ cap pistols, actually _ and trot out the world’s longest dry-erase board to explain in detail why you never had a chance.
But, first, a brief public-service message.
DIDN’T I SEE YOU IN THE LAST EPISODE OF `SWAMP HUNTERS?’
If, like us, you can’t get by without your weekly fix of “Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura,” you already know where to find TruTV.
The rest of you Johnny-come-latelies scrambling to find it during the tournament?
CBS is spreading its NCAA games across four networks this year _ the mothership, plus TNT, TBS and TruTV. And while it will still provide live look-ins to games on the other networks, those will be shown only at halftime or between games. No more cutting back-and-forth to close contests. That’s what your remote is for.
So grab it, and courtesy of Deadspin.com, start your hunt for TruTV here: http://deadsp.in/16LTK2e.
In a previous incarnation, Tru used to be Court TV. Now, the network’s slogan is “Not Reality. Actuality.”
“This is our version of reality,” he added.
What a coincidence. That’s the NCAA’s motto, too.
