They've Got Us Nailed
By Dan O'Donnell
Bud Light has released quite possibly its funniest-ever "Real Men of Genius" ad, this time saluting "Mr. Unathletic Sports Talk Radio Guy."
"You talk sports for 8 hours a day," the voice guy booms. "Which is 7 hours and 15 minutes longer than anyone listens." It's like he's known Wisconsin Sports Weekend all his life!
So funny because it's so true, the spot perfectly sends up all of us armchair athletes, fantasy football superstars, and self-professed "coach killers" who spend far more time doing 12 ounce curls than on the treadmill.
That said, Falconio and I are both former high school jocks. I played soccer, basketball, and tennis, and he played a lot of Madden. Seriously, though, he played football, but both of our athletic glory days are long behind us.
But we still do plenty of 12 ounce curls.
