ESPN Classic Gets You Primed for "the Battle on the Bayou"
Drew Carey said it best when he declared the Super Bowl "a sham". Even after 2-weeks of ceaseless buildup, punditry & pageantry I was still underwhelmed -and my local team won! Since that over-hyped nonsense is over we can now fully concentrate on the big game this week...US-Mexico. Sorry Anglophiles but England-Switzerland isn't even in the running.
Prior to Wednesday evening's most unfriendly of friendlies, ESPN Classic is providing you with a little video-Viagra to help you get it up for the main event; they'll be dusting off last year's classic from Arizona for 12noon EST airing. If you haven't already thought about taking the day off, start developing a really juicy, hacking cough right about now.
And if you're not too familiar with the intensity of this rivalry, please review the following video to find out just how dirty (Mexico) & heated (the U.S.) these games tend to be.
