I'm watching the replay of the Saturday Bears/49ers game right now on NFL Network. I spent most of Sunday with my head in the sand so that I could watch this one fresh on the re-broadcast (including strategically placing masking tape on the HDTV screen to cover the spoiler crawl).
I'm not sure I'll have the patience to wait during the regular season, but (for now) I'm digging it... except...
I was watching the NBC 5 Chicago re-broadcast with Ditka and then at halftime it magically switched over to the San Francisco CBS affiliate broadcast. Fuck that. San Francisco network television looks like a freaking Sarajevo public-access channel.
Frankly, it's embarrassing. It's like the NFL network slipped a fucking cheese-cloth over the lens, decided to unload to 80's era graphics, and lobotomized the commentating crew. Trade Ditka telling humorous anecdotes about Dick Butkus for some mealy-mouthed prick endlessly bitching about the "dampness" of the field and some empty-headed Cali-skank asking Alex Smith (SF QB) how much he can bench. Why not?
Because it fucking sucks.
NFL Network should fucking know it. Stick with the big-boys station.
Plus, if I see that "Viva Viagra" commercial one more fucking time, I'm gonna Elvis my TV with my .45.
Every single fucking commercial break.
I'm glad you gentlemen got your rotten limp pricks back up with the help of Pfizer Pharmaceuticals, but I really don't need to hear you sing about it every five fucking minutes. Yeesh.
On a semi-related subject (to football, not boner-pills); If Da Bears can win their first and last games of this season, they should go undefeated and make those '72 fish-pricks shut the fuck up.
