PHONE'S RINGING -- IT'S URBAN ON THE LINE
What kind of OSU fan leaves to go to the store in the fourth quarter of that game?
Valid reasonable point. Commercial makers don't expect you to question what you see. Just to go buy whatever they're telling you to. And for the love of everything holy, don't put down your phone. For anyreason. Ever.
just hate commercials :)
I know there's a game saturday, and my ass will be there.
Wow, that commercial sucks
the worst part about it is that eSECpn will not allow you to buy on demand games from them directly over the internet. The X-Box 360 is set up to do this, but in order for it to happen, you must have cable or satellite provider. Now, I'm not home for most games because I work on weekends, but I would love to be able to pay eSECpn about $3-$5 to watch the game for a period of 24 to 48 hrs. Same with the BTN. I really want a la carte cable.
Has anybody else noticed that since the courts ruled in favor of tOSU with the ESPN lawsuit... that the WWL has been doing everything in it's power to kiss the Buckeye's ass? No, you say? It's got to be just a coincidence, right?
Well let's review...
1.) On the day the the court made their ruling, ESPN launched BuckeyeNation on their college web page.
2.) ESPN consistently broadcast the EA Sports commercial of the Ohio State dad throwing his sons TV out the window because he added D. Howard to the Buckeyes roster. (Lmao... that was a funny ass commercial)
3.) ESPN decides to do the Buckeyes on the All Access Series.
4.) Now we have this ESPN download app ad featuring our beloved Buckeyes!
Maybe ESPN finally realized that old adage... If you can't beat'em, join'em!
Though I think Ramzy probably said it best... this is definitely the strangest make up sex ever!!!
Now..if they'd just fire Mark May...and the rest of the haters...I'd know they weren't just using us for our huge (fanbase).
I think it has more to do with Meyer than any lawsuit. ESPN has always loved Meyer. They loved him when he was at Utah and became the first BCS buster. The really loved him at Florida. And of course they loved him so much that they hired him once he was done there. It's been too long of a love affair to suddenly break up now.
So I've been meaning to ask this question for a while now. Are we happy to be back in ESPN's good graces and getting all this great press or is it just too patronizing now considering how relentless and biased they were against us less than a year ago? Anyone have any thoughts?
Sorry Wisconsin... It's not a great day to be a Badger
A little love for Ohio band Devo.
I wish they did the actual call from that game instead of whatever they made up. I've always said ESPN can kiss my ass, so I'm glad that they are.
Class of 2010.
Regardless of the reason, (Legal, Urban Meyer, etc) we've been getting lots of ESPN love lately. Fine by me.
At this point I think they keep Mark May around to be the in-house #Troll.
It would be awesome if that app actually worked that fast. Its garbage. After 15 seconds, the screen goes black. This after taking several minutes to load.
And ESPiN could show OSU love for the rest of my life, and I will still hate them. ESPiN is a major reason why cable prices are getting sky high, b/c they have basically monopolized the sports media industry, and ESPiN is no longer a premium channel. Meaning everyone has to pay for it even if they don't watch it on their basic cable packages.
