Best Damn Rehash Ever

Tonight's question: Who's dominated by group think more -- TV producers or hedge fund managers?

Don't these sports shows always drive you crazy with how conservative these guys always are with their picks. Tonight I happened to flip to the Best Damn Sports Show Ever and for the first time damn time ever, I actually made it through more than like 30 seconds of the pointless banter since they were doing a Top 50 Best Finishes Countdown. After they got to the top five, I could pretty much name each of what was going come up.

And #1? Yeah, REAL shocker that "The Play" kickoff return from Cal v Stanford was. Not that it's not an absolutely thrilling play, but come on. It's not like there was some championship on the line or something. If you're going to put a show together like this, how about shaking it up a little bit? To copy the same list as every other greatest finishes ever is pretty much pointless.

PS. How bad are these "Who's #1" shows on ESPN Classic? The concept is great, but those stupid jazzy raps are so cheesy it's insulting. And the only footage they ever show is of interviewed people and photographs of whatever they're talking about. Hey, producer -- you do realize we watch TV to see video footage? Thank goodness the content revolution will put these incompetent producers out to pasture once and for all. Too bad that's still years away.

I know what you mean with those "Who's #1" shows not showing the videos, but i think that the NFL would not let them use the footage or something, because i noticed they would show certain clips from certain sports, but not others.

Interesting. But then we have to wonder, who gave the greenlight for a show about a sport that they couldn't even get the rights to show.
