$10 Comp for Comcast Customers

Thursday, February 5th, 2009

Comcast has very generously agreed to compensate viewers in Tuscon who unwittingly viewed 30 seconds of a porn flick during the 4th quarter of Sunday’s Super Bowl with a $10 credit on their next bill.

10 lousy bucks. Are they serious???

Not that any dollar amount is going to make up for the awkwardness and horror that must have ensued in thousands of Tuscon homes that evening but the least the company could do is recognize their error with an appropriate response. 

I would expect that they would compensate customers with the price of their February bill, you’d think it’s the least they could do.

I’m curious though. How did Comcast decide on the amount of $10? Perhaps it’s $1 per inch of giant schlong that swayed across television screens that night.

Super Bore Turns Thriller In Fourth Quarter

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

56627285For the first 3 quarters the Super Bowl wasn’t exactly captivating competition at its best. The stats and the score both favored the Steelers and by the end of the third quarter it seemed a forgone conclusion that Pittsburgh would walk away as Super Bowl Champs without Arizona even trying to get in their way.

Then in the fourth quarter something miraculous happened. The Arizona Cardinals decided to show up and make a game out of it! 

For anyone watching, football fan or not, you have to admit that there is nothing quite as exciting, or as entertaining as a great football game.

I had no particular interest in who won the game but in those final minutes watching the clock tick down I was on the edge of my seat cheering the Cardinals on. Not because I am a Cardinals fan but because I’m a fan of great competetion, great athleticism and great football.

This Super Bowl delivered on all three fronts!

Super Bowl XXX

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

Super Bowl viewers in Tucson got more than they bargained for in the final minutes of last night’s thrilling fourth quarter. Just after Larry Fitzgerald’s 4th quarter touchdown reception Comcast viewers watching NBC affiliate KVOA got 10 seconds of XXX action when a porn clip interrupted their Super Bowl feed.

Surely, someone’s head will role over this one. A spokesperson from KVOA had this to say, “KVOA will continue to investigate what happened to our clean signal and make sure our viewers get answers.”

I can just about picture what happened here. Some audio/visual techno guy who could care less about the Super Bowl thought he pass some time at work Sunday evening checking out the feed from a PPV porn channel.  

Just when things were getting good he bumps the wrong button.  ”Oops!” 10 seconds later he realizes that he is broadcasting one of Jenna Jamison’s most well-endowed buddies to millions of Cardinals fans.

If you are so inclined to check it out for yourself, here it is. All I’ll say is this. It happens so quickly most people probably didn’t realize what they were seeing before it was too late. And if you’re wondering if it’s graphic, yes it is.

I usually tend to think people get a little too freaked out about these type of things. I thought the fallout from the Janet Jackson halftime show a few years back was over-the-top but in this case I can completely understand that there must be a lot of ticked-off people in Tucson today, especially those who were watching with their children.

Super Bowl Prep Work

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

In preperation for today’s big matchup between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers there is no sense wasting your time reviewing team stats and key matchups. You can watch the “experts” with their 12 hours of pre-game analysis on NBC, ESPN, the NFL Network or several others stations for that. 

I prefer si.com’s “Separated at Birth” rundown.

The Great Debate

Sunday, February 1st, 2009

An interesting question was posed on thebiglead.com

Based on past celeb girlfriends, which Super Bowl QB Ben Roethlisberger or Matt Leinart (backup) has the edge in the big game?

It’s pretty funny, check it out!

FYI my pick, Roethlisberger! With a golfer and a former Heroes actress on his roster you’ve got to give him the edge over Leinart’s two reality t.v. girly girls.

With that in mind, throw them all in a cage match vs. Kurt Warner’s military momma and she’d kick ass and take names!

NBC Still Trying To Sell Super Bowl Ad Space

Thursday, January 29th, 2009

Word is that NBC is still negotiating to fill valuable ad space during Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast. Super Bowl advertising regulars of the past such as General Motors and FedEx have opted out of purchasing any commercial spots. While Budweiser will be the big game’s top advertiser for the 9th year running. I guess it’s true, people do drink more when the economy is bad.

Maybe NBC should rethink their decision to reject an ad PETA created to be aired during the Super Bowl.

On second thought, maybe not. If the FCC freaked out about a quick flash of  Janet Jackson’s boob they’re likely to have a stroke over this!!

Super Bore Sunday

Tuesday, January 27th, 2009

I’m one of those people who believe in a the big 5 holidays- Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Fourth of July and Super Bowl Sunday. 

It shames me to admit that this year I just can’t seem to bring myself to get into the “Super Bowl Spirit”. Is it just me or is this year’s Super Bowl shaping up into a major snoozefest? 

There doesn’t seem to be any big debate on who will win the game, with Pittsburgh the hands down favorite. There is no buzz on Super Bowl commercial spots, probably because with the economy in the toilet corporations aren’t lining up to shell out the bucks for the ad space and production costs for a flashy, in your face Super Bowl Ad.

I am excited about Jennifer Hudson singing the National Anthem. And Springsteen will no doubt sound great, but I don’t hold out high hopes for him delivering a knockout halftime show.

So where does that leave me in in terms of the Super Bowl enjoyment scale? I’m putting all my eggs in one basket - the food. I’ve been on a strict meal plan since January 1st so bring on the chips, dips, wings and drinks!
