NN NFL Tournament of Badness Opening Round: Joe Theismann and Less Cheerleaders

It looks like we're going to have another minor upset at "Tanking The Season To Draft Andrew Luck" is beating "Take A Look At The Film And Find The Rat" at the time of writing this. It's actually not all that surprising, glad to see that Niners Nation is coming to its senses in that regard. The whole "tanking the season" thing is stupid and losing is never alright under any circumstances. Today, we've got a potentially powerhouse number four seed in "Joe Theismann" taking on "Less Cheerleaders", should be a good one. I'm going to have to be quick since I'm falling behind in writing these.

So make the jump to read the descriptions of the participants for today, read full results from the left side of the bracket and of course, view the entire bracket. But first: remember, we are voting on what we believe to be the absolute worst thing of the two. If you're voting in a worst food contest, and you like pizza more than hamburgers, you would then vote for hamburgers in that matchup. Get it? Got it? Good. Make the jump.        

(4) Joe Theismann

Everything about Theismann is annoying, from his face to his commentary. He's a terrible commentator and all we have to hear about when he does is how he can fit himself into any discussion. It's annoying. Worse than that ... the guy is just wrong all the time. Literally all the time. He doesn't know what he's talking about, which is weird, because I'm almost positive he used to play football. Why is he wrong so much? Oh, and the fact that he changed the way his name is supposed to sound so it would rhyme with Heisman? Really? C'mon, son.

(13) Less Cheerleaders

Hey, now this isn't something I care too much about, but I can see where it's getting on some people's nerves. I mean, they used to be a big part of gameday, the camera used to give them plenty of time, now, in an effort to fit more advertising in, they're taking out the cheerleaders. Sometimes, the cameramen make a spirited effort to include the cheerleaders, and then the production crew cover it right up with a big, giant, Coors Light logo. It's actually pretty awful now that I really think about it. Less cheerleaders sucks.
