NBC Sports Thanks You

After the Steelers beat the Chiefs at home in a playoff game today, we heard: “NBC Sports thanks you for watching…”

They thank us for watching a football playoff game? Like nobody would watch it otherwise?

Maybe they should say, at the beginning of the game: “Oh, please, please watch this special NBC sports presentation! We’ll be your best friend if you do! We spent so much money on it! We don’t want to go broke like we do on the Olympics!”

I think they should have said: “We went out of our way to bring this game to you. Anyone who didn’t watch it is going to get their ass kicked! When you least expect it, expect it!”

Hey, this could be a whole new football ad campaign! Just show a huge football player ringing doorbells of people who do not watch football, and when they answer the door, the players tackle them. Then they say: “This is what happens to people who do not watch NFL football!”
