I have and will always be a fan of football. The year’s been for zilch for sports until this week…heck, I barely remember seeing Arena Football anywhere on TV this year. It’s like the 8-man fad’s over.
But the return of football includes the return of ESPN retardation and rampant stupidity from the pressbox. How many forms of the term “athletic” do you think they’ll create this year? Athleticism? Athleticity? Athletical? And how many other bits of nonsensical sportscaster jargon will be popularized by season’s end?
The last football video game I got, NFL2K1 for Dreamcast (yeah, I’m not a fan of Madden and exclusive NFL contracts), allows you to change the sound volume by origin. This means you can turn up, down, or off the PA announcer, crowd noise, on-field SFX…and commentators. Why, oh, why can’t DirecTV have such a blessed feature?
