Brent Musburger opened the SEC Network with a terrificly produced video package highlighting the league’s history of success.  Immediately the presence of Brent sends a message to the viewer – the SEC Network is for real.

And then within ten minutes the network went to Tim Tebow and Joe Tessitore on-site at the University of Florida.  And…. the Gators mascot gave Tim Tebow a birthday cake.

ESPN, the unquestioned WorldWide Leader in celebrating Tim Tebow’s birthday.

Good Lord. This is why ESPN created the SEC Network, isn’t it?  Watching this I had all kinds of scary flashbacks to two years ago when ESPN hit rock bottom as a network.

Fine.  Whatever.  The SEC Network is supposed to be nothing more than propaganda for the SEC’s genetic superiority versus the rest of humankind, I get that.

But Booger McFarland better get a cake on his birthday too, or else I’m calling BS.
