    Iowa State in The League

    So, I'm sitting here watching the wonderful show The League produced by FX when I noticed something strange. The 2009 ISU vs. NU game is used as an NFL game that whole gang is watching. I linked the episode below and it comes in at around the 16:10 mark, but its Mike O'Connell's fumble recovery on the 1 yard line. I actually have the FSN game broadcast and went back and doubled check, but sure enough, its that exact play.

    Minor thing, but still pretty cool. The whole gang cheering for ISU.

    MEGAVIDEO - I'm watching it

    LOVE The League. Will have to check that out.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    There were several instances last fall when The League outdid It's Always Sunny.

    Agree 100%.

    That said, last fall was Always Sunny's weakest run by a mile. Which was a bit surprising after Season 5 was insanely funny.

    I've never watched an episode of "The League." Never just considered watching it. I may have to find this show on Netflix after this development.

    I don't know why I can't get into that show. Everyone I talk to loves it. I like fantasy football, I think that chick is pretty sexy...and I just can't get into the humor. I would bet if you named your top 5 shows I would like most of them...but for some reason I can't get into this one. Maybe I haven't watched it enough. I dunno.

    Re: Iowa State in The League

    The League is the best! I own season 1 on Blu-ray, patiently awaiting season 2, and the start of 3 (Ruxin as heading the league should be hilarious!)

    Just watch the episode "Mr. McGibblets." If that doesn't get you into the show, nothing will.

    The first season draft was great, too - especially when Taco sang

    God dammit. September can't come soon enough. Always sunny, The League, The Office, corn harvest, fall weather, and Iowa State football. God ******* dammit. If that doesn't get you hard, you ain't an American.

    God damnit, I love every single one of those things.

    Fixed the last clause.

    EDIT: I take that back. I like the Office. Wouldn't go so far as to say I love it.

    Just season one. But I also only get what they only stream online, and don't pay for the DVDs through the mail.
