There were two bowl games yesterday. One was the Super Bowl, which I had great expectations of but became very boring after a 36-0 score, which forced me to find other entertainment. I also didn’t watch Obama Bowl with Team O’Bama and Team O’Reilly, two famous Irish guys, going head to head. I did read the transcript and watch some video, which you can see here . I didn’t miss anything because my expectations were at the bottom of my sock drawer.
Bill O’Reilly says he is tough and fair. Bill is a man all about himself. He asked hard questions but never pushed the limit to get a direct answer. Part of the reason was because of limited time and having to get through the script. If it were me, I would have wasted the whole show just to get Obama to commit. He didn’t and neither did Obama. Also the ground rules were set: no criticizing “My Belle”, the kids, mentioning his middle name or his ears, Democrats or the dogs. Plus, I think that what you couldn’t see off camera were numerous Secret Service agents pointing semi-autos and MP5s at O’Reilly’s head. I mean, just a little besmirchment on O’Reilly’s part would have had Bill swimming with the fishes, had it been The Godfather he were talking to. Fortunately, Borack has not ascended to that plateau yet.
Now the game was fraught with fumbles and interceptions. O’Reilly would get to the red zone and just turn the ball over. O’Bama couldn’t make a single play without fumbling the ball. It was uglier to watch than the other bowl game. The only saving grace for the viewer was when Team O’Bama called the game due to lousy weather-aka Fox News-before the first quarter was even finished. Nothing could have been better save not having the interview to begin with. What a lousy day for bowl games.
