.....besides Micky York/John Keating is the commercials. They are just....the worst. Spartan grocery stores, Miller Lite, all of those stupid dealership commercials. It seems like they show the same commercials on every break. It's like a nightmare for me.




F-U local sponsors.

Nothing wrong with local sponsors, IMO.

Those Miller Lite commercials are nationwide, too.

Welcome to the world of television. Sponsors pay for spots, they play them. Local commercials everywhere are horrible. If you have Center Ice you know what I mean. At any rate, it sure beats listening to Olczyk and Pierre on NBC any day. I tend to enjoy Keating's awkwardly quirky remarks.

The best part about getting the other teams feed is watching that region's local commercials. You can usually tell right away what feed you're going to get by what commercial is playing.

I figured this would be about the FSD intro music. I'm so sick of it.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I really wish the Fillet o Fish commercial was back.

Also the new Rahmani commercial isn't as good since there is no wings soundbite.

And also... I already know a pick-up truck is a better hockey player than Franzen, and I'm cool with it. Just stop telling me.

Franzen and a 3rd round pick for the pick up truck?

And then one day, you find yourself living a thousand miles away from where you grew up and wishing that there was a Belle Tire down here because none of the local tire stores come close to the same price/service standards. I find myself digging most of the FSD commercials out of childhood nostalgia and wishing they'd bring back the Kowalski Kowality Moment.
