What must I confess to you, my OBNUG confreres? As many of you know, the older one gets, the more precious becomes life's true gift: time. Sooooo, I wasted 15 perfectly good minutes of my life watching two stuttering morons ruminate on BSU and their possible bowl game and opponents last night after the NFL game.
As you all know, KTVB is the NBC affiliate in the Treasure Valley and Sunday Night Football is aired on the very same channel. So far, so good, right? Steelers beat the Chiefs, no surprise (although KC made it a lot closer than I expected). OK, so the game is over about 9:45PM and Channel Seven turns it over to their local "sports guys," and the ensuing 15 minutes might be the single most awful "broadcast" I've ever witnessed. Obviously, Tust and Larrondo were working with very sparse scripts, but, yeagods man, I--with absolutely no broadcast training whatsoever--could have pulled off something more coherent than that.
Alright, so far nothing too earth shattering since most of you have been subjected to the know-nothing nattering of these knobs at one time or another. But here's the exchange, roughly paraphrased, regarding a potential Las Vegas Bowl vs. Arizona St. that made me wish for the sweet release of complete deafness:
Tust: " It would be an interesting matchup with Erickson coaching the Sun Devils..."
Larrondo [near sputtering apoplexy]: "But with Erickson coaching, would Vandals even cheer for the Broncos?"
