When Pigs wear skirts....

On ESPN's Sunday Night Football, when talking about the new Illegal Contact*, one of ESPN's crack-squad commentators, Paul Maguire, mentioned that with more and more penalties protecting people permitting less vicious hits (which I am all for), that it only leads to more and more skirts. To which Mike Patrick came back with, as long as it does not make its way into the television booth. ESPN, I am sure, is paying Mr Maguire a large sum of cash to tell us that more penalities to protect its players are effectively putting more and more skirts on these players. That, and probably steroids. God, I love football and football annoucers. What other sport will you find an announcer profess that on National TV?

Definitely not on Fox, ever since Thom Brennamen made two mentions of one of a Fox affiliate, Fox Sports', The Best Damn Sports Show on TV, and was fined by the FCC. To which, Fox changed the shows name to the Best Sports Show on TV, that and was reimbursed by the Bush campaign.

*the illegal contact rule is a rule that beyond 5 yards from the line of scrimmage in football, defensive players cannot make contact to an offensive player until that player actually receives the ball. If you want to know more, look up the rules.

  • I don't know from sports but I do know from plagiarism - being in school, you get it hammered into your head all the time that it will get you expelled.

    I hope Lloyd gets expelled.
