Welcome to the Wednesday OWR Mailbag! Have a question about betting, sports, pop culture or tacos? This week we cover annoying commercials, the next big fight and the proper way to bite into a taco. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is the couple paying their dog sitter on their phone while standing in line at the airport with their bratty kids the worst commercial?
No, there is an arthritis commercial for a drug (forget which one) where there is a man and women describing their challenges they face with arthritis. The woman is unable to climb stairs. The man? He is complaining about the pain opening pickle jars. Maybe that’s a sign to stop eating pickles. It’s hard to be sympathetic when the woman has much bigger problems. What a dick!
Was last Saturday, “The Biggest Sports Day Ever” a bust?
If your day consisted of The Kentucky Derby (boring) and the fight, then yes. However, that also means you missed out on a classic game 7 between the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs. It had everything! That game is why the NBA is faaaantastic! Also, that game saved the day…
I was let down by the big fight, will we (in our lifetime) ever see a fight hyped as much as Mayweather and Pacquiao?
Given boxing is on its last leg with many already, I think the only way is if the match transcends just a regular match. It needs to be USA vs. (country that hates us). Yes, like Ivan Drago – did he really have to kill Apollo Creed? What a dick!
