I’m sorry that my earlier thread (NASA TV: “Heidi Bowl 2”) attacks the agency that provides the most support for the FIRST program:o . NASA and NASA TV is not at fault for the circumstances that led to the final two matches and chairman’s award announcement not appearing on NASA TV. FIRST needs to get it’s act together when it comes to schedule during the Championships. Their schedule needs to have adequate margin to account for multiple “rubber game” matches, field problems, speeches that run longer than planned. This happened last year, so NASA TV extended it’s coverage and FIRST still couldn’t complete the event in the allotted time.
My regrets to all of those in NASA and NASA TV who I might have offended. You all do a terrific job in bringing FIRST to our students. Please accept my apology…and my thanks for what you all do.
