“Sochi’s Olympic Village: Where top tier athletes from around the world will spend the next two weeks sleeping, eating, fucking each other, training, and cumming.” Sometimes satire is closer to the truth than actual news. You have to see this…
Maybe the BCS isn’t the biggest problem facing college football, but people sure do hate it. That’s why The Onion posted this delightful story earlier today. “Debate over who ‘deserves’ the national championship will never die, unlike these tiny 2-day-old kittens I am crushing in my fists.” Brilliant. Also…would that make the BCS any less popular? [The Onion]
We’re big fans of “Get Out of My Face,” the Onion’s series of web-only sports spoofs that draw largely from shows like PTI and Around the Horn. Like we said before, the reason it works is because it’s short: it throws a lot of funny things at you very quickly, then leaves before any momentum is lost.
“Get Out of My Face,” The Onion’s satire of PTI (and every sports-shouty show ever), is everything their ill-fated Comedy Central show Onion SportsDome, and the similarly short-lived Sports Show with Norm MacDonald, should have been.
The prospect of making a show with The Onion’s name attached is daunting, just because of the level of quality that’s expected from that brand. Was Onion SportsDome’s premiere worthy?
It looks like the goofballs at The Onion have come up with another hit. The satirical sports show is set to debut on Comedy Central on January 11 at 10:30 p.m. EST. The Onion A.V. Club claims the show will “render all 25 ESPN channels irrelevant in the space of just 30 minutes.”
Ah, the classic Hank Williams Jr. “Are You Ready For Some Football?!?!?!?!” tune that’s brightened many a Monday night through the years. But the masterpiece of cheesiness is now also proven fodder for (very, very similar) jokes.
