Dan Patrick is reuniting with Keith Olbermann on NBC’s Football Night In America. That’s the good news. The bad news?
Besides Patrick and Olbermann, “Football Night” features Bob Costas, Cris Collinsworth, Tiki Barber, Jerome Bettis and Peter King.
If you have Patrick and Olbermann, do you really need Bob Costas, Cris Collinsworth, Tiki Barber, Jerome Bettis and Peter King? I vote fuck and no. I saw Tiki Barber host the July 4th Macy’s fireworks show. If you like everything you watch to feel like a Proactiv infomercial, Tiki’s your boy.
More bad news: Patrick has spent over a decade now on a radio show that consists solely of him telling you what’s coming up next on his radio show. Oh, and Olbermann has gone completely fucking nuts and now believes himself to be Edward R. Murrow. Even Barbra Streisand thinks the fucker is obnoxious.
Also: NBC, making their nostalgia synergistic, will probably have Hootie and the Blowfish sing that stupid fucking Joan Jett song they use for the opener.
