So it's Monday and, as promised, I'm putting up a poll to work out the over / under for our first Super Bowl prop bet. After voting all of last week, we got a good set of five prop bets:
Prop 1: Number of Egregious Broadcaster Mistakes (suggested 2.5)
Prop 2: Number of Times that Jim Caldwell's Colts' Sacrificed Bid for a Perfect Season is Mentioned (suggested 1.5)
Prop 3: Number of Times that Brett Favre Gets Mentioned (suggested 2.5)
Prop 4: Number of Time "Who Dat" is Mentioned During the Actual Game (suggested 4.5)
Prop 5: Number of Times Jim Caldwell is Shown on Camera Displaying Actual Human Emotions (suggested 1.5)
Today we're going to vote on the official NinersNation Over / Under for Prop 1. I'll set up a poll with five good possibilities and you get to use all of your handles and fake handles to pad the vote count for whatever option you want.
In the comments section, go ahead and reminisce about your favorite broadcaster mistakes (NFL, NCAA, MLB, NBA, ETC.). Feel free to discuss the folly of the long-term effects of the telestrator on John Madden's psyche. Discuss your favorite broadcasters all around.
Some possibilities for discussion (all sports and levels are open here, don't feel stuck to football):
- Favorite / Least Favorite Broadcaster
- Favorite / Least Favorite Play Call
- TV Broadcaster who Most Needs to Get His Face off of My TV
- Best Sport for Broadcasting (Alternately: Best Radio / TV Sports)
- Best / Worst History of Broadcasters for a Franchise
