I don't even like basketball, but that was the shiz back in the 90's.

All I have to say about that is...I'm pretty sure it needs more cowbell.

Wow, that's one of the gayest commercials ever put on with a bunch of animated inanimate objects that I've ever seen. [I mean that in the literal sense -- lots of sharp pokey things!]

And can you imagine the millions of dollars in ad revenue NBC lost for its little "intermission" stunt? Were that to air now, it'd likely end with a Nike swoosh or a Chevrolet symbol. One whole minute of unsponsored airtime just won't do.

Also, on-air stuffing one's face with food and drink I'd expect from Madden, but Costas? That in and of itself seems fairly historic.
