A Bone to Pick with NBC

Friday night, I watched the season premiere of Friday Night Lights on a big screen the way it was meant to be seen. I've already posted my thoughts on the show, which haven't changed, but I did have something to say about a dirty nasty trick NBC pulled during the broadcast.

At one point, there was an advertising bug along the bottom of the screen proclaiming in gigantic letters, "GET YOUR OWN TIM RIGGINS." Well, naturaly I was quite excited by this, since I would very much like to have my very own Tim Riggins. But in teeny tiny letters under that it said, "jersey at" So it's not your very own Tim Riggins. It's just a dumb shirt. This made me very sad.

Curse you, NBC.
