I know this has nothing to do with college football, the SEC, Tennessee, or anything like that, but the only big sporting event of the weekend is the All-Star weekend emanating from sunny Las Vegas, Nevada.
That being said, and my need for sports not being completely satiated by the NFL Replay of Super Bowl XLI, I decided to tune in to the network that so cleverly named itself after trinitrotoluene, an explosive chemical compound. Good play Ted.
But Ted’s brain must be about to explode (haha, see what i did there? that’s super clever) at the coverage of the event. I don’t know what TNT’s operating budget is, but I would imagine it would be more than the people who are submitting videos of the event via their cell phone cameras to YouTube. The reason I bring up YouTube? Well, the quality of the video on the popular video site is at least 20 times better than the quality of the crap they’re spewing out from Vegas.
There are glitches, skips, burps, and other technical terms for terrible video feeds going on a dime a dozen from the All-Star weekend. Every time the camera angles switch, it seems that the feed gets worse.
My take on the situation is that perhaps the cameramen pawned their original cameras to pay for their
hookers gambling, and had to pick up something that was not quite, HD. As it turns out, cameras bought from the back of a Chinese Dry Cleaners van don’t quite have the same quality as those bought in Japan. Sure, they might both read “SONY” but as it turns out, the “S” in a legitimate Sony product isn’t actually a “five (5).”
Thanks Ted, ya rich bastard.
