"We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered to us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased." C. S. Lewis

Last year on Super Bowl weekend we did a little experiment where we combined American Idol with American football, and we learned that when America's favorite sport collides with America's favorite television show, it is a smashing hit. In fact, there are a lot of smashing hits. Just watch.

Do you really wanna hurt me? Do you really wanna make me cry? I threw my hands up, they're playing my song. The butterflies fly away. Not in my head. Honey, you do me wrong but still I'm crazy about you. And I will always love you.

That never gets old. Greg still has whiplash from it from a year ago. This year we thought how can we top this on Super Bowl Sunday and then we thought what would it be like if we combined American football with some of America's favorite reality shows, especially those shows that have really annoying people on them like the Jersey Shore and we thought who wouldn't want to see Snooky meet American football. I mean who wouldn't want to see that. That is entertainment. I think this is what it would look like.

Hey America this is your girl Snooky and I just want you to know that MTV did everything possible to get you from seeing me be punched in the face.

Yea. Say what you want about Snooky but that is a beautiful woman right there. We have to admit that. We have to at least admit that and then I thought about all those cake shows. You know, the cupcake wars and the cake boss and the ace of cakes. I thought what would it be like if the cake boss met American football? I have got nothing against the cake boss. He seems like a good guy and a nice guy. I just want to see cake fly. That's all. Here is what I think that would look like.

Now how many of you guys watch the Bachelor? Raise your hand. Yea. Women love this show and I don't get it because it's always a smooth talking guy who is a real creep. You know? And it's this real creep who all these women are trying to get chosen to marry this creep and I don't get it. But women watch this show like crazy and how many of you men on this guy's kinda Sunday would like to see the Bachelor take a hit and see if he can take a hit?
