In Defense of Bad TV

January 9, 2013

This past Monday in the United States of America, something very normal yet non-sensical occured. The college football championship game was played. American college football is a system and a sport that never made any sense to me, but it must make sense to some as it is a huge annual event.

The game itself was a stinker as one team easily defeated the other.

When a televised game is dull and pretty much done from the get-go, the broadcasters have to find a way to keep people tuned in. One sure-fire way is some good ol’ fashioned USA certified TNA. Hence the invention of the cheerleader.

Sometimes, the camera scans the audience until somebody even prettier is found. And sometimes the starting quarterback of the winning team is dating a looker. That looker must be in the audience. Oh wait a second… He is dating a looker. A crowned looker. He’s dating Miss Alabama. And folks, there she is!

So the camera showed all of America Miss Alabama sitting in the stands.

With the camera focused on the pretty lady, veteran broadcaster Brent Musburger refered to this woman as a “lovely lady” and a “beautiful woman.”

The next day, Mr. Musburger was being criticized for his words.

He’s an old man. Old men are allowed to say things like that. In fact, they’re allowed to say a heck of a lot worse. What’s the point of being an old man if you can’t say dirty old man things?

To anybody who thinks Mr. Musburger did anything wrong, shut up. You’re either jealous or a dickless douchebag. In either case, shut up.

You see, there are two kinds of people who think Musburger was wrong in what he said: 1) women jealous that they’re not being called beautiful by dirty old men; and 2) men with no balls who feel the need to apologize to women for men being men.

    Gotta agree. I read the story and you’d think he said that he was going to get all 50 Shades of Gray on her.


    And speaking of shades, how come women buy porn from a display in front of a book store while men have to buy porn in disguise?

    I also didn’t understand what the big deal was.


    Ugly women and douchebags with too much free time

    This is the internet and we love faux outrage. Still this is as stupid as the game was boring.


    So much faux outrage over this yet none over the shield costing ryback the title, again.

    It would have been hilarious if he went 50 Shades of Grey on her!


    Or if he went all Twilight on her. “I’ve dreamt my whole life of spending eternity with a tortured soul like hers.”

    I’m usually up in arms about everything and this doesn’t bother me one bit!


    That’s because you’re not a jealous ugmo.

    Maybe for balance they need to find some really ugly people in the audience and talk about them too?


    I’ve seen enough sports to know that silly looking people making fools of themselves get the spotlight too. Like the guy in Houston who ducked a foul at a baseball game and the ball struck his soon-to-be ex girlfriend.

    That was so silly. She IS a beautiful woman! And there’s not a thing in the world wrong with saying that. It’s like saying a flower smells lovely, or a painting is beautiful. Some people are lucky enough to be living art.
