I remember back in the 1970s when for college football you only got one or maybe two games on ABC on Saturday (now you are inundated with them). You’d get this great colorful opening with bands, cheerleaders, teams running on the field, Chris Schenkel in his always cheerful voice. Then they’d break to their primary sponsor, an insurance commercial with some young man packing grocery shelves saying how Dad planned for him to go to college and get a degree and good job but Dad didn’t plan on dying and now he has to work this. Real downer
to what should be an enjoyable afternoon.
I prefer Flo. Or Yogi talking about that insurance that if your’re hurt and miss work, it doesn’t hurt to miss work because they pay you cash which is just as good as money.
