Holy Crap!

Tuesday, January 02, 2007

Just preparing you for the game that people will be talking about for quite some time. But it was the most amazing game I've seen.....well probably ever. And I'm not kidding.

Boise State stuns the Nation and defies the odds to take out Oklahoma. I can't even describe the end of the thing because it would be unfair to those who haven't seen it.

What you do....is wait for it to be played on ESPN Classic.....grab some popcorn......and enjoy. Do your best to not read or watch the final play, and try to watch the whole 4th quarter and OT. Just amazing.

Just do me that one favor....please. You'll thank me in the end.

Respek! Boise State. RESPEK!!!

UPDATE!!!! Ian Johnson even proposes to his GF (of course the head cheerleader) after the game.

More on this and Brent Musburger calling out blogs tomorrow. I don't know if I'll be able to sleep.

Chris Myers can go eat a big fat cock for wrecking the surprise proposal.

Lame move, dude.

Oh, I forgot -- best four and a half hours I ever spent glued to a bowl game. Actually more scintillating to me than SC-Texas last year, and I'm an SC fan.

I should have taken a nap, as I'm between a split shift, but I regret nothing.

I saw that reaction to Johnson's proposal, and could only think one thing:

This man is either incredibly stupid (proposing marriage at around the age of twenty) or incredibly smart (guaranteeing himself a night of hot lovin' with a hot cheerleader).

I'm tempted to write the Boise State AD and submit an interview request just so I can ask if the proposal was worth it.

Great game, but an even better finish.

That was an incredible, incredible game. My jaw just kept dropping lower and lower.

And Musberger sucks too.

Before the game, Spencer Tillman called this the "Affirmative Action Bowl." What a horse's ass.

Ian Johnson, the pride of San Dimas, CA. "San Dimas High School football rules!!!"

I wish my high school team had a head cheerleader. We only had a "will totally hump you if you get her some Zima" cheerleader.

I loved the Boise State QB Jared Zabransky's post game interview. He was so fired up it's like he didn't take a breath giving answers, it was allonebiglongrun-onsentence. I especially liked the dig he got in about the media, the way they hyped OU and didn't give BSU a chance.

What balls to go for the two at that point, as well.

What a great game? The best I have ever seen? Maybe. Not better than last year's Rose Bowl.

Hook 'Em, Horns!

The announcing was terrible and the camera work was awful. Was the game an indication of how Fox will cover the MNC?

Barry Alverez was good, even very good. Spencer Tillman needs to shut the fuck up, now! He contributes absolutely nothing other than to allow Alverez to rest.

On the BSU touchdown pass in overtime, Alverez notes that Ian Johnson is on the sidelines because he is not a good receiver. Great point by Alverez.

On the two point conversion, no one mentions that Johnson is standing in the backfield.

How shitty is Tillman? As the teams line up on BSU's two point conversion, Tillman is still pontificating that BSU should put Zbransky in a run/pass option.

Really, Tillman? Because that is the same thing you said that OU should do with Thompson just before he threw a strike to his third option receiver.

Spencer, you, and not Boise State are a perfect example of affirmative action.

Michael, You are 100% right. Tillman would not shut the hell up. I'm going to package a review of Fox at the end of all the bowl games.

Except it wasn't Spencer Tillman. It was Charles Davis.

Someone from the CBS crew thought this was so funny, and I agree, I had to write you guys.

We all are intitled to our opinion and I respect that 100%. Your evaluations on Charles Davis, AKA Spencer Tillman is absolutely ignorant. Charles is a first rate announcer. You may not like what he says but he is as prepared as anyone broadcasting today. Again, you may prefer another broadcaster but to suggest that he brings nothing to the broadcast is just uninformed. By the time you figured out that it wasn't Spencer Tillman I could ease up a little. Not only are you ignorant, you're blind.

Spencer Tillman

Yup. I will take credit for mistaking Spencer Tillman with Charles Davis. My fault. And, Spencer, if you are reading this post, I apologize to you.

Charles Davis? No way. I will stand by my comments.

I am flattered that CBS passed around my little comment. This represents a frightening turn of events because my dog is the only one who listens to me. My wife tuned me out long ago especially when ranting about announcers who detract from the broadcast with inane commentary.

Humor aside, as a member of the audience, I abso-fuckin-lutely will determine the value of an announcer's broadcast. If enough audience members find no value from an announcer's broadcast, then the audience will tune out. Ask Dennis Miller what happens to announcers when the audience tunes out. I think you can find him kickin' around Fox News on the second quarter block during the overnight rotation.

Remember, customers (AKA your audience) will ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, determine the product’s value. Charles Davis has no value.
