Saks Fifth Avenue turned on its Christmas lights overnight. You might also notice Christmas ads today while watching college football. Tis the season. Can’t even let the Halloween day-after puke dry before trying to suck money out of us. You people keep feeding the corporate machine, they’re going to give you commercials on November 1. I’m mixing it up this year. I’m buying all my gifts off QVC. Not kidding. I’m also going to buy Christmas dinner from the channel. I’m talking ham and whatever sides I can come up with.
CBS Is F**ked
Remember when Georgia-Florida meant something? So CBS was caught in a bad situation this weekend. They have to show this game at 3:30. It’s required of the channel. Then, at 8, CBS has Notre Dame against Navy. That’s a game they HAVE to show. So here comes ESPN gladly scooping up #3 Auburn against #4 Ole Miss and it’ll start at 7 and crush Notre Dame-Navy. Say all you want that ESPN has an SEC bias, but don’t forget that CBS made a business decision to purchase the rights to Notre Dame-Navy (when it’s not an Irish home game). Also, remember when ABC had decent Big Ten games to show against the SEC on ESPN? Tonight at 8…the game you’ve been waiting for…Illinois at Ohio State. At what point do Ohio State fans get tired of 8 p.m. kicks against shit opponents? This year has been incredibly brutal.
Numbers from @:
Auburn is 26-5 against Ole Miss since 1971.
