Not that this is interesting in any way, shape, or form to you....but I found it funny. Both FOX and CBS issued press releases surrounding their NFL coverage today and both took shots at each other.
FOX's release came first and it's title is obviously a joke on CBS' previous release calling the Pats-Colts game Super Bowl XLI 1/2.....
"Super Bowl XLI¾” – Cowboys-Giants
Too funny, but I think CBS has won the war with the following line buried in their latest release....
"Note for scheduling purposes: the real date of Super Bowl XLII is January 20th. The confusion may come because it is also being referred to as the "AFC Championship Game." Go figure."
Dagger! Take that FOX!!!
CBS also released their Week 11 Announcing pairings in the release, so here they are....
