Are you ready for some foot...huh?

Sunday was the day of the big football game. The SUPERBOWL!

There are a lot of people who make this particular game day a huge deal. Hosting parties. Getting jerseys. Lots of food. Lots of beer. Yeah. BIG deal for many.

For us? It was another family day. We washed the Hubs car. I detailed the inside and some of the outside. The kids ran up and down the street. Since we were so busy outside, we forgot to give the kids an afternoon snack. They got a little testy with each other as we caught the first 10-15 minutes of the Superbowl. But we decided it was best to head off to an early dinner at Chipotle. We didn't head off to any parties. We did note that a few of our neighbors near us were having parties. There were a LOT more cars parked on the street than normal.

We came home and the kids watched the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet. They just LOVE watching those little dogs! The Hubs and I went into the office and did some work while we half-watched the game. No biggie. Just another regular Sunday in Arizona.

But for some folks here in our town? They got a little bit of spice while watching the game on Sunday. Oh yeah!

In the last 3 minutes of the game, Comcast customers who were watching through the standard-definition signal got a 30-second pornography clip from an adult pay-per-view cable channel named Shorteez. Yes. So some guests attending viewing parties got a little more than they bargained for. Anyone who was watching the game through the high-definition signal didn't see the clip that "featured full male nudity" of a "woman unzipping a man's pants, followed by a graphic act between the two" as quoted from a local news source.

Can you believe it? You're watching football with a bunch of people that you wouldn't normally have at your home and then you see porno? AH! I'm sure it was the WORST nightmare for many. Especially if their kids were in the room with them. Can you just imagine how many parents shot across the room to cover their kids eyes? Eek!
