ESPN REALLY SUCKS
The much maligned sports network managed to ruin watch parties across the country when they accidentally revealed almost the entirety of the Women’s bracket four hours ahead of schedule. ESPN cancelled their bracket reveal show, further showing their lack of respect for Women’s basketball. Oregon’s Sabrina Ionescu took the opportunity to poke some fun at the blooper.
So @ESPNU is gonna leak the bracket and then proceed to ruin everyone’s selection show party by changing the time. Go ducks am I right— Sabrina Ionescu (@sabrina_i20) March 18, 2019
