The commercial concluded by noting that the Seattle-Portland game would be on Fox Sports 1--who would have thought that professional (term used loosely) American soccer would bring together competing sports networks?


It happens from time to time if the league mandates it. ESPN promotes NBA games on TNT and vice versa at the behest of the league.

I'm in lust. I yearn for that Zoli's rendition.

I saw a promoted tweet about that last week. Not sure it can top the greatness that is DoubleDave's Chili Dog Pizza, which should be back on the schedule in a few days (I believe they do it in July).

A Bud Light ad/The Office knockoff set to Ice-T's "Colors"--I think I stared at my TV for the entire commercial in disbelief. I'm willing to bet if you had suggested this to him 30 years ago, he might have considered shooting you. Whether it's him or not, whoever owns the rights to this song should be ashamed (to say nothing of the Bud Light Marketing Department)...

I see this commercial a lot lately and maybe it's just because so many others are so much worse to me that I don't hate it (I think they show the same 5 commercials every half-inning during the Astros games, for example, and I despise them all). I actually laugh every time the nerdy looking guy spazzes out (0:15 second mark).

To each his own, right? Ha.
