LSU got beat today. Not that I got to see it, or anything.
I missed the first half of the game because my mom had a little meltdown right as the game was about to kickoff, and I had to run out to The Glen and calm her down. It's ten miles there and ten back, so it took me a little bit.
I finally settled in to watch the third quarter and had a couple more minor interruptions. I got back in front of the TV with about five minutes left in the third quarter and it started to rain in east Texas.
About 150 miles from here, it started to rain and a storm warning was issued. So guess what? The KSLA weather dude interrupts the game to tell us about the storms in east Texas and Arkansas. MILES and MILES from here. Sunny and warm here. No rain. No storm warning. Nothing. Nada.
No game, either.
He talked and talked and talked and talked. I finally pulled out the laptop and watched the last part of the fourth quarter on the CBS website. Incredible. Now, I'm not begrudging those people in the path of potentially dangerous weather access to news information or bulletins about impending peril nor do I mean to make light of weather danger.
But, seriously, I mean, could they not scroll the warning information for those affected and put a watch box in the corner? Noooo....... of course not. The guy talked all through the fourth quarter.
I'm glad I wasn't on the switchboard at KSLA this afternoon. There's some ticked off Tiger fans around town now.
Oh well. At least the Rangers won last night!
