Good news, everyone! Fox Sports announced its broadcast schedule for Big East lacrosse!
Bad news, everyone! It's . . . limited:
FOX Sports, the official broadcast partner of the BIG EAST, announced on Thursday that it will broadcast four BIG EAST Championship contests in the spring in men’s lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, softball and baseball.
If that doesn't look good to you, you have mastered basic reading comprehension and are now eligible for any no-show government job. Congratulations. Here's the somewhat disappointing details as to Fox Sports' lacrosse concern in 2014:
|Saturday, March 29th||6:00 P.M.||St. John's at Providence||Fox Sports 1|
|Saturday, May 3rd||1:00 P.M.||Big East Tournament Championship||Fox Sports 1|
That's it. There's no more. Fox Sports -- which forked over many multiples of millions in a 12-year rights fee deal with the conference -- is airing two -- two! -- men's lacrosse games this season. This almost puts Big East lacrosse on par with Big East softball, which is getting three games on either Fox Sports 1 or Fox Sports 2.
I guess Fox doesn't foresee lacrosse bringing in monster Perfect Bacon Bowl advertising dollars.
