There are three words you don’t necessarily want to hear: Gimino on TV.
Three more cringe-worthy words: In high definition.
But when Damian Alameda, the sports director of KOLD-TV Channel 13 asks nicely, how can you refuse? So, do tune in this weekend — twice! — and get ready for some football talk before and after the Arizona Wildcats’ big game Saturday night against the Iowa Hawkeyes.
First of all, we will be live from Arizona Stadium on Saturday’s 5:30 p.m. newscast to preview the game. And then, on the Sunday 10 p.m. newscast, I’m scheduled to be in studio with weekend sports anchor Dave Cooney to talk about all that went right for the Cats … or wrong.
(And just now did I realize that I will be missing a new episode of Mad Men on Sunday night. Oh well, that’s what the DVR is for.)
In the meantime, check here through the weekend for Arizona-Iowa stories from the TucsonCitizen.com Sports Network — including from me, Javier Morales, Steve Rivera, Brad Allis and Scott Terrell — and check out KOLD’s package of sports stories on the web, too.
