Even Eli Manning will think this is dumb

February 4, 2008

Like every major sporting event, there was bound to be a barrage of crap following last night’s game. However, this one takes the cake in terms of total uselessness. Who in their right mind was sitting around last night watching the game and thinking, “You know what I want to remember this game? A Waterford crystal in the shape of a football. With the Giants logo on it.” Awesome.

The dumbest thing ever
Who are they marketing this to? Clearly they have not picked the correct target market because I came home from watching the game to find this in my inbox. What are the odds that I will be running to Macy’s after work to pick one of these up? What a waste of money.

Also crazy? Apparently just about as many people are excited about tomorrow’s Super Tuesday presidential primaries as were excited for the Super Bowl. What is this world coming to? The biggest sporting event of the year is now roughly as exciting as watching people vote. I wonder if ad prices on Tuesday night will be millions of dollars for each thirty second spot.

    Macy’s website doesn’t even list how big the crystal football is. For $185, I can almost guarantee it is not the size of a regulation football. Most likely falls more inline with a paperweight. No doubt there are lots of people who are going to buy this… probably in the New Jersey area. Same folks who buy alligator heads and three t-shirts for $10.00.

    Everyone is invited over to my place tomorrow night the Super Tuesday Kegger!

    I wonder if Waterford has some Patriots crystal footballs lying around that will be sent to Sierra Leone with all the Patriots Super Bowl Champs t-shirts?
