The dumbest thing I've ever read (excluding my posts)

    From LJB's favorite BLOG!!!! ProFootballTalk.com:


    The Green Bay Fox affiliate WLUK says it will not air Seinfeld in its regular Saturday afternoon time slot because it's Eli Manning's favorite show and the station doesn't want Manning to feel welcome when his Giants visit the Packers.

    "Why give comfort to the enemy?" said FOX 11 Vice President and General Manager Jay Zollar. "Green Bay Packers fans do not want any of the New York Giants to get a good night's sleep and FOX 11 will do its part."

    But if the station really wants to get in Manning's head, why doesn't it take a page from the All-Seinfeld Team and show the episode where Jerry gets the bad haircut?

    Uhh, jackass? There's this thing called a DVD. I can imagine if watching a Seinfeld the day before a game is that important to Eli, he's bought the DVDs and a portable player so that he can watch the show for several hours. He's not going to crawl into the fetal position because you pulled a half-hour episode.

    Attention-seeking douchebag. Of course I only assisted in that right here. Blast!

    Maybe they'll show The Client instead.

    Nah. They don't want to send the Pack into mourning, too.

    Shit, I thought you'd gone and pulled some of my long-ago columns.
    Carry on.

    Normally I'd think the station boss would get a big atta boy from Fox HQ, but considering the HQ is in NYC, probably not so much.

    I rather expected to see the cover of the five people you meet in heaven.

    At the risk of becoming a board pariah, I'll admit that I liked "The Five People..."

    I didn't think it was possible that you could read through your posts and still hit the 'post' button when you were finished...

    Eli's like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- he can't win in the cold weather.

    But a better thread title would have been "TV station tells Eli 'No Seinfeld for you!'"
