The new and not-really-improved Super Bowl Opening Night happened Monday. It was appropriately ridiculous. One of the squares on our homemade Bingo game hit big and resulted in a prominent podcaster and his boss being escorted from the premises.
A cynic could wonder if that wasn’t the very scenario they wanted. But, hey, all press is good press for that website. Since these are trying times for journalism, though, it seems prudent to highlight some credential media members who PLAYED THE GAME THE RIGHT WAY and weren’t ejected from the event.
