That title is coming across a little harsher than I wanted it to, but it's up there so we're going with it. NBC released their commercial promoting the Winter Classic (you know the outdoor Hockey game on New Years Day), and not only is there a cheap Harry Caray knock off, but a voice-over cameo from Bob Costas! Here's the commercial from Fanhouse via Scarlett Ice....
Again, the title was a little bit much because I did actually enjoy it, and the game itself is awesome. Hopefully it will be snowing again this year, because last year's action in the flakes was just too much fun.
Update: Okay so forget everything I said about that person imitating Harry Caray. Apparently Caray doesn't do that good of an impression of himself. Oh and....my bad....
