Sports Shouting on 30 Rock: The Fake News Scroll
I know this was 2 weeks ago, but I’m just catching up on 30 Rock. Which, btw, remains one of the funniest, if not the funniest, shows on TV.
I had heard about the “Sports Shouting” bit on Twitter, but didn’t know when it would appear or in what episode (I was several weeks behind – don’t ask). Finally, it showed up in the middle of Liz’s lunch meeting with her agent.
Not only is the concept hilarious (picture “Around the Horn” but with even more yelling), the scrolls of fake sports news along the bottom of each shouter’s square were priceless. For more on the spoof, click here.
Thanks to the magic of TiVo, here are the fake news scrolls:
Jacksonville residents “no longer aware” of Jaguars
KC Royals accidentally left of 2010 MLB schedule
Unfrozen, immortal Ted Williams signs 100-year extension, eats only rotten [cuts off]
Brawl between Globetrotters and Generals leaves three dead
Extreme MLB to feature real bulls in bullpen
WC Qual: SWE 0-DEN 0/GER 0 POL 0/POR 0 SPA 0
Pitino: “I’m over here at the bar, if any of you [cuts off]”
And something about a very fat NHL goalie
Again, further evidence of 30 Rock’s genius and why it’s on my Season Pass. If you’re not watching this show, what’s wrong with you?
