While sitting on the crapper reading ESPN The Magazine, I came across a great Snickers ad that pokes fun at broadcasters’ clichés, which any dedicated reader of The Nittany Turkey knows is right up my alley. They missed a few, like “untracked”, “athleticism”, and “physicality”, but no BINGO board would be big enough to hold them all! (They did get “it is what it is”.) I’m still wondering what the big prize is. Snickers deserves a free plug here for its ad agency’s creativity. Click on the thumbnail at right for a laugh.
Another humorous bit was brought to me by RD. It seems that Spider and wife will be removing those names from all the PSU jerseys sometime soon. Here’s why.
The Onion provides a tragic comment on ESPN’s programming choices.
“How many times do I have to tell you guys?” After the Jets rookie quarterback stunk up the game Saturday night, Coach Rex Ryan inserted potential probable possible maybe perhaps starter Mark Sanchez, who promptly not only stunk up the game further but also fucked up his shoulder, jeopardizing a Jets season that doesn’t have a Chinaman’s chance, anyway. Rex does his best Joe Paterno act (“You guys don’t know what the hell you’re talking about!”) at the post-game media conference when questioned about the wisdom of his coaching maneuver.
