Comcast Sports is holding a 90-minute long, season-opening preview tonight at 7:00 p.m., and my brother and I were lucky enough to be invited. “The Basketball Show,” as Comcast is calling it, combines a television show and online chat.
Here’s Comcast’s description of the event:
Our entire broadcast team and online team join forces to take your calls for 90-minutes on the eve of the highly anticipated season opener with the Heat. Fans can call into the show and ask the panel questions, or join us right here on CSNNE.com for a Live Chat.
My brother and I will be part of the online live chat (sadly, our television debuts will have to wait), so click this link at 7:00 to ask us questions.
P.S. – I actually was on TV once before, when a local broadcasting station televised one of my high school basketball games. I scored 18 points and was proud to be the game’s second-leading scorer, even though we lost to Charlestown High School. I was a star, I thought.
A year or so later, my cousin recommended me a book: The Assist. It was written about the Charlestown team we’d lost to be three points that day, the day I’d scored 18 hard-earned points and transformed myself into a TV star. The book called one player on my team (my friend TJ) a beast, and lumped me and the rest of my teammates into one sentence. I think I can remember it word for word, but I might be a little off.
“The rest of the team was characteristic of the slow, methodical white players common in the western part of the state [Massachusetts].”
So much for being a TV star, huh?
