CRAP NIGHT IN AMERICA JUST GOT WORSE

You already know how much we hate Football Night in America.

Watching Bob Costas and Keith Olbermann giggle like school girls while trying to outwit each other with pithy dialogue is just misery. But apparently we're not being tortured enough, as NBC will be "going green" by (wait for it....) turning off the lights while on-air (note irony here about NBC being owned by General Electric).

Reports Michael Hiestand of USA Today:

"We're thinking of having Cris Collinsworth wear a miner's helmet with a light," says show producer Michael Weisman, seemingly serious. "And have candles. Or maybe Glow Sticks."

Weisman added that "We're opening ourselves up for ridicule and sarcasm."

You mean by turning your halftime show into a rave? Really, you think?

We have a better idea to go green: Turn off Football Night in America.

Man, we're geniuses.

Dear Sunday Football Night in America,

Did you notice the F'in huge PLASMA TV's that you failed to turn off? The only acceptable response is to blame it on Keith Olbermann's humor.

Love,

America

p.s. you guys suck
