Seahawks vs. Patriots? Who cares? But the inflated media coverage of shrinking balls is hysterical. I have heard steroid use can cause that also. Could there be better fodder for late night TV and stand-up routines? "Man walked into a bar and ordered a stiff drink. The bartender brought him a pint of Hop Viagra with hint of citrus." Ba-boom. Must have been happy hour! Anybody can write these jokes. I charge 25 bucks a pop. It goes to PAYPAL.
The Oscars and the Super Bowl? Money, ego and hyperbole. I am getting confused as we speak. PSI of footballs is possibly a great example of shrinking weight of news coverage or do I mean the twenty-four-seven tide of meaningless content. Some of it connects to facts on the ground but it is up to the distracted consumer/viewer to garner importance of each tid-bit. Are they up to it? My personal strategy is to use news boycott. That is what Netflix is for. So let us retire the overused moron-gatedness. Sloppy slang is for losers.
