NewsOK needed to keep up with basketball this week
I can watch a lot of basketball in one day. Give me two televisions and a remote control, and I’ll sit in front of the television and keep an eye on …. let’s say 20, maybe 25 games tops.
I can do it. I don’t have proof, but I’m pretty sure I can do it.
Years ago, when we were in our Web infancy on NewsOK (then it was TheOklahoman.com), I sat at State Fair Arena from Thursday through Saturday for more than 12 hours each day to cover the high school state tournaments as they happened.
That was in 2001.
But I don’t get a medal for working hard for three days eight years ago. It was nothing compared to what the sports staff will be doing this week.
They will be covering 48 games on Thursday. They will be posting stories as they finish. They will be blogging, analyzing and shooting video.
That’s 48 basketball games in complete detail.
Now let’s go back up and review how many games I think I can watch in a day …. 20-25 right? That’s on my best day with limited interruptions and a full night’s rest stored away.
