The New York Giants defeated their division rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, to secure first place in the NFC East this afternoon. However, if you watched Fox’s coverage of the game, you might be inclined to think that the Giants were somehow undeserving of this victory. That’s because Fox commentator Joe Buck apparently has some bone to pick with the Giants.
Throughout the game, Buck found ways to point out Giant mistakes and diminish their achievements. Even as the final seconds ticked down and the Giants victory was imminent, Buck decided to make more disparaging remarks about the home team, crediting the victory to the defense and pointing out that quarterback Eli Manning looked disappointed because, Buck says, he knew that was the case.
Frankly, I’m sick of Buck’s smarmy, know-it-all comments. He’s biased and annoying. I’m tired of hearing it. Fuck you, Joe Buck.
On a related note, thumbs up to David Tyree, who did a great job on special teams once again. Thumbs up to my parents, also, who braved the elements to watch the game from Giants Stadium today, the first day of snow here in NJ.
