A reader sent me this link and it took me a few seconds to figure out what it was, but this is a post from Brendan O'Reilly (left) who is part of a two-man Sports team on WBNG-TV in Binghamton, New York. Brendan had a copy of Cornell winning the Ivy League and apparently ESPN was relentless in it's pursuit of the clip for Sports Center. Brendan isn't exactly happy with ESPN the day after.....
Yes, we are happy to share the video from Cornell clinching their Ivy League title. Hope you don't mind if we go ahead and worry about our show first though.For the rest of the post click the link below...it's very entertaining. Trust me.
I know everyone loves the Sportscenter, with the zany commercials and all, but we're going to go ahead and edit our stuff first.
We're selfish that way.
Second, after I send you the video roughly 15 minutes after we get the tape back from Ithaca, feel free to call again and ask me to resend it because "the video quality isn't the best." No sweat. It's not like I mentioned we're a staff of 2 putting together a 30 minute show.
I'll keep your number for when I want a different angle on all the stuff you send to WBNG.
Third, when you run our video on all your shows, please find a font size roughly one pixel in height to show that it was shot by WBNG. We want people that have 60 inch monitors to have to squint to read it. That's the goal.
Dear ESPN, (WBNG Sports)
