Ever wonder what you’ve been missing in the time since so many of us have turned our back on our ever-increasingly politicized sports shows? Here’s a peek.
Did you need a confirmation that blowing off the activist leagues and their woke broadcasters was really the right choice?
That you were right to value your self-respect more than you cared about the latest tilt between the home team and their rival?
This clip should be enough to remind you why you left in the first place.
Joe Buck and Troy Aikman didn’t realize their mics were on after the fly-by. It’s interesting to see what people are willing to say when they think nobody is looking.
In the same way that Obama let his guard down, showing his true face while talking about ‘flexibility’ after the election with Russian President Dmitri Medvedev, these two sports announcers showed us their true face in talking about the military flyovers.

TROY AIKMAN: That’s a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.
JOE BUCK: That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!
AIKMAN: That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I’ll tell you that right now, partner. –BroBible
No, you are just another interchangeable woke commentator who hates the military specifically, and the traditions of America more generally. Another cog in the left’s ‘woke’ machine.
Even his argument against flyovers makes no real sense.
According to Newsweek, these flyovers serve a role in both recruiting and in training.
Air Force Spokeswoman Jennifer Bentley told Stars and Stripes that although it is unclear exactly how much of a recruitment boost flyovers give, they remain “a way for the U.S. Air Force to showcase the capabilities of our aircraft while at the same time inspire a future generation.
“We are increasing the number of events eligible for support to assist with recruiting efforts and in telling the Air Force story,” she said.
…The costs of flyovers are deducted from the training budget of the branch that takes part, and the time involved does count towards pilots’ training, however limited and simple the flyby may be.
Past flybys have been criticized as a waste of money, especially after the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas, when jets flew low over the stadium’s closed roof at a reported cost of $450,000. –NewsWeek
Rather than the costs to taxpayers of flyovers, they might want to think about the costs of preening little blowhards like themselves on a league that’s bleeding viewership.
That flyby ‘problem’ they are worried about can solve itself if there’s nobody in the stadium to see it.
Of course, that would mean they’re off looking for other work.
(Hopefully something they’re more suited for than what they’re doing now… unless ‘driving away fans’ was part of the grand plan all along.)
