Did You Like That Game Or Did You Just Say "Feh"?

To answer the question that Myron Cope so long ago posed in the theme song to "Cope's Cabana", I just said "feh."

Other things that contributed to yesterday's orneriness:

Can we possibly get Chris Collinsworth on more broadcasts? I'm just not getting enough of him. Sure, when I close my eyes, I see a ghost image of him because his face has been burned into my retinas and when it's really quiet, I can almost hear the dull whine of his voice, but isn't there a high school football broadcast somewhere that he's not a part of?

If I have to see one more commercial that features Peyton Manning looking like a bad porn star, Peyton Manning getting cantaloupes signed for Eli, or Peyton Manning clawing his way out of a football like Jim Carrey emerging from the birth canal of a rubber rhinoceros, someone will have to die. I think I've made myself clear.

Football on Fox. Now, I like robots as much as the next guy. The Cylons on the old Battlestar Galactica were the balls, with the little red light thingy they had for eyes that went back and forth. But, enough is enough. Between the machines, the clicking and whirring of the graphics and the inane comments of Troy Aikman (he actually said "Big plays are what's gonna help you score points" yesterday), Joe Buck is actually a bright spot. And by "bright spot" I mean "pretentious gas bag".

Shannon Sharpe is the loud one who looks like a horse.

Sharpe is the loud one with the tiny, tiny eyebrows that look like the squiggle over a Spanish "ñ".
