Monday, April 28, 2008 Salutes

Let's move on from old business about how Ubie totally loves me more than Jiggs, because she totally does and what's the point of rubbing it in Jiggs's face, a face that is less loved than mine, and hurting his feelings? Let's salute something!

I was flipping by ESPN this Saturday to see what was going on in the NFL Draft. To give you an idea of how badly football owns this country, ESPN devotes two days to televising teams pick players. This is not a fast process - the first round allots ten minutes to each team to make a pick. On TV, you spend five minutes listening to experts talk about who the last team picked, then they spend five minutes talking about who the next team should pick, then you have ten seconds of real news when the team makes the selection, and then the experts go back to babbling. Obviously, I could tolerate about twenty minutes of this before I had to turn the channel.

But the thing that struck me was the convention center is packed with fans. They don't even get to hear the talking heads babble, so for them it's ten minutes of nothing and ten seconds of action for an entire day. God bless those poor bastards, because there wasn't even a woman in sight to ogle.

I mean, say what you will about the Renaissance Faire, at least there's cleavage.

I went to the NFL draft once and there was a lot of interactive stuff for the fans there to listen to.

No tits though. Sadly.

Earl: So they had things to listen to besides Jets fans booing picks? Probably a good marketing move.

Tasty: Something tells me the demographic is all wrong for that.

Ubie: Thank you. I'm a possession receiver good for underneath routes. However, I am deceptively slow.

Amera: I only get ESPN and the Deuce. No Classic, News, U, or 360 for me.

It's very sad.
