So apparently there's some sort of brouhaha over the opening of Monday Night Football this week that featured Nicollette Sheridan dropping her towel in front of Terrell Owens in the locker room.
This is how the New York Times dryly described it:
After asking Owens to miss the game, Sheridan dropped the towel; the camera showed her upper body from behind. Owens, smiling broadly, said the Eagles would have to win without him, and Sheridan leapt into his arms.
Let me get this straight: T.O.'s childish, braying antics aren't offensive. Neither are the gratuitous shots of cavorting cheerleaders on the sidelines. Nor are the one-dimensional, cartoonish depictions of "housewives" as some sort of pent-up suburban sexual predators an issue. Only the wildly implausible pseudo-sexual scenerio aired after primetime without any more nudity than what you'd see in a Victoria Secret ad is up for discussion.
Got it.
We'll all be fine, I think, as long as Monday Night Football doesn't resort to this. Posted by Jeff at November 17, 2004 08:32 AM | TrackBack
