I nominate the "good stuff" commercial where 2 men dressed in beaver suits run on a treadmill while watching a blonde woman run next to them. they then show the product for 2-3 seconds (some kind of foam insulation for pipes) and then cut back to the "beavers" watching the woman use a chest press machine. strange.....

Do all those ads for oln shows about daring average humans braving it against the odds and "general exhaustion" in far off lands piss anyone else off. Adventure is now experienced through a lounge chair, and the clowns who are supposed to be so daring are probably in as safe a situation as if they were camping in the backyard. Worst case scenario they could sell some of their thousands off dollars worth of outdoor junk to the natives. Putting a group of lucky "average" people on mount everest? That sounds as far from an adventure as Everest has ever seen.

Not to mention the fact that the commercial itself or the other one about the Louis Vuitton Cup run on for about 10 minutes...kinda makes you wanna turn off the tube and go online to find out what's happening instead.

I'm looking forward to both the LV Cup and the America's Cup race. But I wonder if the sailing crowd b*tches like cyclists do about improved coverage of their favorite sport?

My family is into sailing and has a nice wooden boat, I'll go out maybe once a year if the wind is above 30mph. Far from a spectator's sport in my mind

They didn't tweak my nerves because I would much rather watch an endurance race, kayaking, or mountain climbing or anything else oln serves up rather than sitcoms, golf, or the all time worst on my list, baseball.
