Five Quick Ways to Get on TV at the NCAAs

So, you’ve made it all the way to Anaheim, Calif., and you want everyone to know it. What better way to do that than be on television, right? The footage lasts a lifetime, everyone can see it — especially if you record it — and it’s much easier than calling, writing and telling everyone you know.
But getting on TV is easier said than done. So here are five ways for you to make it happen:

No. 5: Be really good at basketball, and lead your team to the NCAA Tournament. This one’s too hard, so I’ll move on.
No. 4: Wear Something Ridiculous / Don’t Wear Clothing Such as a track jersey, or a sports bra, or face paint. [Pictures coming after the game]
No.3: Be a Cheerleader, Band Member or The Media Or just be Harrison and jump up when somebody dunks, while you’re on Press Row. That was the first and last time that happened, trust me. But it probably worked.
Really though, if you want to get on TV, develop a sudden talent for an instrument or a love for cheering/preforming/etc. (Maybe you’ll be able to sneak in … ?) Speaking of being sly …
No. 2: Fake It ’Till You Make It Be really intense; really really intense. Cheer. Cry. Wave your arms all over the place and jump up-and-down. Whatever you do, do it with fervor and as much passion and intensity as you can, because TV loves to show the emotions being evoked for everyone to see. So, even if you’re faking it, you’ll make it on TV.
No. 1: Make a Catchy Sign CBS. Cornell Beats Stanford? We’ll see soon enough …

We know, we know, these aren’t so great. If you have better ones, post them below!
