This is our first Superbowl Sunday as hockey bloggers, and we’re sort of at loose ends about what we’re supposed to do. Do we try diarizing the Big Game? Nah. That’s just stupid. Do we try talking about football at all? Nah, because all we have to say about the Pats/Giants matchup is that we don’t really care who wins. Do we try to think of something cohesive to say about the Devils? Dear God no, not with the way they’ve been playing lately. So… we’ve got nothing. In place of an interesting post, here’s a running list of reasons why hockey is better than the Superbowl.
– Hockey doesn’t have Joe Buck. Sure, it’s got Pierre McGuire, but believe it or not, we’d take McGuire over Buck any day of the week. In fact, we really liked whichever beer ad campaign it is that has the guy saying “Dude” in all kinds of settings up until they made one with Joe Buck. Joe Buck ruins everything he touches.
– Hockey doesn’t require an understanding of Roman numerals.
– Hockey doesn’t get us all excited for the thrills and chills of the Greatest Commercials Evah, only to leave us disappointed and ashamed for paying attention to putridly awful, stupidly self-congratulatory commercials that we would normally ignore. Or worse than that, putridly awful, stupidly self-congratulatory commercials that include Joe Buck.
