Final Four-Final Thoughts

This has been an unusual production and working for CBS, held few surprises. Things went together well and very few issues were seen. I have enjoyed my times working on these shows and they have had their frustrations as well, but it is time that I move on and away from this work. I have informed CBS that I will no longer be involved with AFC Championships and Final Four doing the pre/post game show. One more end of era.

Both Brian and I were glad we were here and we did have an enjoyable time doing this show together. I am sure Brian will be back to do more but I will be home watching.

Final Four Monday

When you do shows this size, there is always something that comes up that will be discussed for years. What happened here will be discussed for a while as it was really a dumb thing to happen. The CBS personnel that ordered the mobile trailers that we build edit suites and graphics thought they were getting a big room to allow us to have one continual bench for each operation. The problem was the trailer rental people didn't understand our needs so shipped a bunch of trailers with large bathrooms. Of course, we don't need bathrooms so these rooms are wasted space.....except we need the room. Therefore, "resourceful" now kicks in.......

This is an edit bay built in the bathroom

This kinda says it all
