"Mass Effect 3": Initial Impressions
Let's Have Some Fun With ESPN's NBA Trade Machine

Damn, This Is Kind Of Mean

By 03.06.12

Well, we started the day with some fun Chicago Cubs news and my semi-feigned disappointment that Nick “Ron Swanson” Offerman is a lifelong Cubs fan, so why not pile on with some more North Side news? Because this one might sting a little.

Sony released a new commercial for MLB 12: The Show today, and while the theme is admittedly clever and surprisingly beautiful, I just can’t help but think that it’s like pushing a burn victim into a sand pit. The video – that you can view after the jump in case you’re impatient and don’t feel like reading one of my patented build-ups – sets the scene of the Cubs winning a World Series for the first time in a bazillion, jillion, zillion 104 years, and I’d be lying if I said that it didn’t make this Cardinals fan a little misty just thinking about what could be.

Then I felt warm so I tapped Alfonso Soriano on the shoulder and he started swinging his bat to cool me off. Hooray for baseball season!

Not a single flaming police car? That’s clearly fiction.
