Watching the Fiesta Bowel last night finally had me realize why I hate ESPN so much. I give credit to Greg McElroy and the other announcers because they actually did a decent job and because they were decent, I could properly focus on my hatred.
So during the segment when ESPN focused on the autistic brother of PSU's WR, they kept showing the brother eating popcorn (FREE PUB to WSU Popcorn guy) or the player on the bench while talking about what an inspirational story the guy is fucking blah blah blah. After showing these 2 guys for way too long, ESPN cameras finally go back to showing the field. Most of the time, the team is already at the line of scrimmage and about to snap the ball.
During the fluffer story time, I'm missing the huddle, substitutions and alignment. I'm watching the game because I want to watch the fucking game and not an autistic guy eating popcorn. If I want to see that, I'll look for it on YouTube.
I don't give a shit about the fluff story either but I get it, it's how ESPN shows how they care about people fucking blah blah blah. Go ahead, tell the fucking story but put the fucking cameras back on the field. After a 3 second shot, I know what the autistic brother looks like eating popcorn. I can also imagine what he looks like not eating popcorn so you don't need to show me that either.
