Haven't seen this referred to on the board, but the guys at The Onion have started a half hour TV sports news show which completely skewers ESPN style sports coverage, with made up stories such as this one, where Gary Bettman stages his own kidnapping as a way to get more coverage for "his hockey TV program." Hilarious, its on 10:30 p.m. every Tuesday on Comedy Central.
OT: "Gary Bettman Kidnapping" The Onion "Sportsdome"
I saw the one where they were tracking down escaped retirees from the NFL compound.
Also goot love "Who would you Kill?"
"Can't wait to come back and desecrate the corpses!"
Only '"Gary Bettman Kidnapping" The" showed up on my iPhone....you really had my hopes up.
Best that could happen to pro hockey.
The title of the post references The Onion on my screen, but I was still kinda hoping it was true as well and it fell to The Onion to report, because nobody likes him...
One of the two anchors, Matt Oberg, is a Michigan Man. He's also funny as hell.
