Imagine you're in Colorado watching your team in the AFC Championship game. The game is still in the first quarter, but tensions and nerves are running high as your Denver Broncos are tied at zero with the New England Patriots.
Now imagine you lose the CBS feed for the game for approximately five minutes. This is the exact nightmare which unfolded for numerous Broncos fans in Colorado Springs Sunday as the Broncos rolled to a 26-16 victory. As if the feed to the game going out wasn't bad enough, the screen reportedly froze on an image of Tom Brady. Lovely.
The feed was repaired and the CBS affiliate KKTV 11 apologized, but let's all be thankful the residents of Colorado Springs weren't rioting in the streets after this little incident.
