A FOX producer was either in a marching band or plugged up a band member with a clarinet
Our friends at Awful Announcing told you all about how ridiculous FOX's coverage of the Orange Bowl was last week. According to AA, FOX cameras found a band member from either team 110 times, which is about 108 times too many.
Things weren't much better for Monday's National Championship. Those fucking bands were on TV more than the teams. We didn't count the shots, but it was probably about two hundred thousand. Bloody hell.
American Pie told you all the goodies that happen at band camp, so we were crossing our fingers we'd get a shot of a trumpet player getting sodomized with a trombone or a shot of the sultry saxophonist getting a facial from the drum line.
Meanwhile, after about 900 looks at the Ohio State band, we've fully decided they are dressed more appropriately for war than for football. They look like the French fucking army. Those berets are a combination of hideous and horrendous.
But hey, Thom Brennaman was fucking great. The same enthusiasm you'd hear for a preseason game. Thanks, Thom.
