Thanks to the nephew I got a chance to see the first half of the ‘Pokes – Packers game (How can Time-Warner rationalize making the NFL Network a premium channel?). I’m lovin’ the Favre revival – he is still my favorite player in the league. Something strange happened along the way: I have started to appreciate Terrell Owens.
Don’t know how this happened, but I figured I’d better let everybody know. Still can’t stand the antics – what is the purpose of the popcorn act. (I know professional sports are entertainment; I just think the game is entertainment enough without the frivolous props and acts.) If T.O. could keep his trap shut, he could be as good as…as…Jerry Rice?
Another thing I need to come clean on – Deion Sanders as a sideline reporter? Wow! I have had zero patience for the groupies with mikes and a camera, but ‘Neon’ added something to the game. Yeah – that’s right the defensive player who would never dish out a hit or run to the sideline quicker than anyone when someone tried to hit him – I’m giving him props. His narration of the problems faced by the Packer secondary helped the broadcast.
I don’t know what is going on with me? T.O. and ‘Neon’ – never thought I’d write a post giving them props.
