There have been many attempts to put a comedic or satirical look at sports on TV (“Best Damn Sports Show Period”; “Sports Soup”), and so far none have been able to put together anything smarter or funnier than a SportsCenter commercial or one of Rex Ryan’s speeches from “Hard Knocks.”
That may change in January, when Comedy Central begins airing “Onion SportsDome.” This video making fun of Rodney Harrison’s barbarism shows a lot of promise — a couple of the Photoshops in the video made me laugh. Also, it features Ronde Barber as a guest analyst. Could Ronde become a funny version of Tiki? I dunno, I’d have to see what his mistress looks like.
