Broadcasters Piss Me Off
Someone on ESPN, during halftime of the Hornets/Spurs game:
...you know Manu Ginobli, with 16 points in the first half, recently voted the most popular person in Argentina, more than their president, that's where he's from.
I'm not sure what country this guy lives in that he even considers that the president might possibly be the most popular person in the country, but it's certainly not this one. How can anyone seriously sound surprised that a professional athlete is more popular than the president? I could list professional athletes for days before I got to one that was less popular than our current president. Hell, Manu Ginobli would probably make that list, too. And even assuming that other countries don't have presidents as crappy as ours, professional athletes are always going to be more popular.
If Obama wins the election (please!), I'm pretty sure he'll be a pretty popular president, but he's still not going to be as popular as Tiger Woods.
