I know we’re a day or so late on this, but this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen, even if it’s fake as shit. This is my greatest fear, the TV going out during a crucial moment in a big sporting event. As I’ve said before, this is one of the main reasons why I haven’t cut the cord. If my feed had gone out during the final seconds of the National Championship Game, I would’ve, no joke, suffered irreparable harm to my mental well-being. Cable, still, is most reliable, but there’s nothing we can do, as a society, to protect against this. You can take all safeguards – backup stream, sports bar, Sling TV emergency backup from a friend – but if your power goes out, a cell tower goes down, or the sports bar you’re at didn’t bother to pay its waiters tips and they revolt and rip the cord out at the big moment, you’re SOL. For real, imagine Brad Lidge delivering the 0-2 and then your TV cutting to color bars or some shit. What would you do? How would you go on knowing that you missed the clinching moment of the only sports championship in 30 years? Do you just shut it down as a sports fan after that? Heartbreak even in glory? I don’t know. I don’t want to think about it. So, I feel for the Turkish guy… even if he didn’t miss anything. Turkey lost to Croatia, 1-0.
