Yes, I saw the Kevin Ware injury on live television. Yes, I noticed the injury as it happened and as Ware was laying in front of the Louisville bench with his leg popping out of his skin. Yes, I’ve seen the replay more than once because CBS ran it more than once, making a family Easter gathering very queasy.
CBS Sports Chairman Sean McManus said that because of the graphic nature of the injury, the network decided not to show it after the original replays. People could quickly find replays on YouTube, anyway.
“We did not zoom in on the injury when he was taken off,” McManus said. “We did not try to highlight it. I think we did the right thing.”
Uh, they couldn’t zoom in on the injury as he was taken off the court because medics had his leg in some some of giant sleeve.

As for the women’s NCAA tournament, here is Baylor coach Kim Mulkey reacting to a charging call that probably cost her team a trip to the Elite 8 and ended Brittney Griner’s college career. In case you missed it, Kim’s postgame presser was a real treat.
In baseball news, happy Opening Day! Umps called this a catch last night during Opening Night, featuring the first place Astros and Rangers.
Looks like a catch to me.
Good work, NHL MILF.
Um, call us.
Finally, after a brutal winter for most of us and a Louisville basketball player breaking his leg in half, bring on like 14 hours of baseball.
