Welcome to BIG BORED MONDAY, where every week we'll present the weird, wild, and wacky of the football weekend. Why BIG BORED MONDAY? It's a take on the "Big Board Friday" graphics & sound package that made up Friday night high school football highlight shows on local affiliates in the early 90's, complete with the cheesy graphics and music we've tried to replicate here.
Back in rural Ohio, "Big Board Friday" was must-see TV every autumn. I hope we can make BIG BORED MONDAY must-see...eventually...TV for you. Not to worry, NFL fans -- your highlights will be included next week.
The theme song is the original BIG BORED MONDAY theme I recorded in 1996 for my Monday morning sports show on the high school TV station. It was done in DOS on a 486 computer using Scream Tracker III. You may recognize it as a take on the opening sequence to the 1980's action drama Airwolf, which by nature of incorporating Ernest Borgnine and blowing stuff up made it one of that decade's most influential programs and no we don't know why they made an A-Team remake and not an Airwolf one and it's probably for the best that they didn't anyway.
