There were some impressive moments on TV yesterday worth noting.
First, Bob Griese let fly with this during the Minnesota-Ohio State game.
If that was stupidly tasteless, then Lee Corso’s comment about Arkansas on ESPN Gameday was tastelessly stupid.
But my favorite comment from yesterday was simply stupid. It came towards the end of the first quarter in the otherwise forgettable Houston-SMU game, when the Houston defense sacked the SMU quarterback and forced a fumble on the SMU one yard line. That sequence of events inspired this remark of genius from color commentator Akbar Gbaja-Biamila, who obviously wanted to show off that degree of his from San Diego State:
“In a capitalist society, you want to capitalize on something like this.”
That is chock full of teh awesome.
