If there’s one thing Glenn should never, ever comment on, its sports. Take, for example, his coverage of the Super Bowl, which focused more on the awful halftime show and National Anthem than it did with the football game. Glenn did have praise for some “sports players”, but he didn’t have very nice things to say about Christina Aguilera or The Black Eyed Peas.
“So anyway, I was really offended by the sports players that were just, they were just hanging on their jersey and everything else,” Glenn said of the football players during the National Anthem.
“Well, you don't ‑‑ first of all, you don't watch enough sports not to call them sports players. But secondly, that happens,” Pat said.
“I'm going to smack you so... your whole family will go numb. I'll hit you so hard, your whole family will –“ Glenn joked.
“This is why we don't talk about the Super Bowl. Because the host calls them sports players,” Pat responded.
Despite Glenn’s lack of sports knowledge, Pat had wanted to talk about the Super Bowl because if Glenn kept going on about Egypt “people [were] going to hang themselves.”
Glenn did appreciate William Gay, who seemed to be very moved by the National Anthem.
“Maybe he was just caught up in the moment of, you know, here I am at the Super Bowl and this is my moment to shine and this is the Star‑Spangled Banner. I mean, it's a moment. At least one person, I saw one person. So thank you, William Gay, Number 22, of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Thank you for at least having a moment. And if you were thinking about, ‘Have you seen the taxes in my check?’ And you were crying about that, don't tell me. I want to believe that it was something else,” Glenn said.
What did Glenn think of the half time show?
“Awful, awful. First of all, I don't know why they had a deaf person mix it was beyond me. I don't have any idea,” he said.
But Glenn does appreciate some Black Eyed Peas music, despite the poor performance last night.
“Some of their numbers are quite snappy,” he said.
