What is this? 1996?

I will admit I do occasionally watch NFL football games on TV. If there's nothing else on, or if I'm too lazy to look for something, or I just don't have the energy to be overly invested in what I'm watching, they pass the time. And if the announcers are Al Michaels and John Madden, I can feel a bit of nostalgia for the days of my youth when the Bears were good and I watched them on TV every week.

So last night, I put the game on NBC while I'm eating my dinner, and it's halftime. And guess who's anchoring the highlight section: Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick! It' like reliving the hay days of Sporstcenter back in the mid to late 90's. You know, back when Sportscenter was actually good. Before it became the CSI of highlights shows: all sizzle and no steak.

How did I miss this was happening? They announced it just days before I posted about how Sportscenter had gone downhill and then foisted some classic Sportscenter promos on you. I mean, I looked at a lot of wikipedia pages putting that post together and not one of them had been updated yet to reflect such a stunning turn of events. It's almost enough to make me want to watch NBC's Sunday night game every week.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
