further adventures in Jed York being unsuited for his position
NONE of this compares to how bad the scoreboard animations are (or were, can't imagine someone kept their job) at Ohio Stadium. I went to a game down there a few years back and it looked like someone vomited glitter and cartoons onto a jumbotron. There were oddly colored cows with the OSU 'O' branded on them, effeminate referees skipping around and doing a flag throwing dance, and other horribly put together crap. It looked like the peppy ugly cheerleader from high school decided to take a few entry level design classes. She then somehow landed the job and decided that incorporating kittens, fruity refs, and for no reason at all a random rotating globe, was a good idea.
In retrospect, I've been to several Blue Jackets vs. Red Wings games. The first one I went to, when a Wing was whistled for a penalty, they showed a live action shot of him arguing with the ref. It deteriorated into him skating into the penalty box, throwing his stick, and then weeping into his gloves, at which point I realized that it was taped prior with actors. I had to give them props for that. It was pretty good...
Gimli has great pad level
Someone was probably paid to create that promo.
But probably not a second time.
The dude on the right's expression is priceless.
The guy on the right is watching "2 Girls 1 Cup."
The guy on the left is involved in the most intense croquet match in recorded history.
The coach is doing his best Marshall Applewhite impression. (Marshall Applewhite... can that be a coincidence?)
Marshall's coach has an expression that doesn't scream confidence. He seems concerned, possibly about the crazy hammer-wielding stump-jumper behind him?
Who are they again?
What's the story with the hammer? Why is there only one?
Why does the coach look like he's at a life insurance seminar?
This was a magnificent photoshop trainwreck.
is the most bizarre solicitation for ticket purchases i have ever seen. coach looks like Xenu, overlord of some bizarre MST3K movie, the guy on the left thinks he's intimidating and not at all a dead ringer for a trucker at an IHOP at 4 AM and the guy on the right is... oddly sweating and... in pain?
That's because Gimli on the left delivered an uppercut to his nuts with the hammer right before the photographer clicked the shutter.
Don't they ever have outside people review things before they commit to it? Focus groups can be your friend sometimes...
coach looks like James Caan

My wife and brother in law went to Marshall. I have been to a few games and my wife is pretty die hard. We have a Marshall sticker on our SUV with a UM one.
