Back When The Air Was Clean
And The Athletes Were Returnable

Don't you remember the good ol' days? I sure do.

I remember the days before NFL coverage was touchdown-commercial-kickoff-commercial. I remember when the games didn't seem so long. I remember Keith Jackson and Don Meredith in the booth. I remember when Chris Berman actually had hair on all sides of his head. And I remember when all of the players used to be animated beer bottles.




Man, those were the days.

Why ask why? Start Bud Dry!

MDG said...

remember when they brought in the fridge?

I remember being squarely on the side of bud light even though I was 10 at the time.

MDG -- concur. This is what made up my prepubescent mind that beer awesome.

Bud Dry = Doug Williams. One great game, then he passed into obscurity.

Bud's QB has a glass arm, an invisible glass arm

I have fond memories of gambling on the outcome of the Bud Bowl.

Those Bud Bowls were fixed, IMO.

Now if only the real super bowl were going to be that entertaining.....

I remember those days. ahhhh. I didnt' drink beer then, I was too young. However, I always wanted BUDWEISER to win because I liked the color red. Little did I know that I'd end up liking them even more when I did start to drink beer at the age of 14, and that I'd hate Bud Light. It's still shit.

Bud Ice always started strong, then cooled off in the second half.

Are you implying that Puppy Bowl is somehow less than Bud Bowl? I'd elaborate on this, but as I was typing that, my balls fell off and rolled under the desk. Damn, they're way back there too. Gonna have to get a clotheshanger or something.

Damn I miss the Bud Bowl.

McFad said...

Forget Lingeries Bowls, Puppy Bowls, Finger Bowls, MTV halftimes, just show me a Bud Bowl in its entirety at the half.

J Money said...

It's fun to see pontificating fat-ass Berman being a sellout. Somewhat less so to see Keith Jackson doing the same thing.

If nothing else it was well-designed, keeping you watching their commercials each quarter.

Forget Lingeries Bowls, Puppy Bowls, Finger Bowls,

Could we try a Finger the Lingerie Model Bowl? No puppies, please.

P.S. I am not a crank.

What the fuck ever happened to dry beer?

And more importantly, I'm pretty sure you can't wield a bottle opener on the field.

Hey Homer, didn't you say that if Duff Dry wins, your daughter loves you?

Not Duff Dry, Washington!

Okay, okay...they're both great teams.
