Via The Hall of Very Good:
I'm going to say it...making fun of Nickelback was a lot more entertaining BEFORE they were in on the joke.
Allow me to explain.
Last month, some Detroit fans protested the band's appearance during the Lions annual Thanksgiving Day beating vs. the Packers.
I mean, seriously...why should a Canadian rock band play halftime in, perhaps, the most blue-collar city in America during an all-American holiday when a guy like Kid Rock is out there, seemingly, doing nothing?
But the joke was on us. Chad Kroeger and the boys had to go ahead and ruin it...by poking fun at themselves via a video over at Funny or Die.
And...they played halftime.
Now, there's this.
Friday, Atlanta Braves reliever Peter Moylan sent the following tweet out into the Twittersphere:
Funny and true.
Then, Nickelback responded.
Now, I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that even Moylan would probably say it's better watching the National League Rookie of the Year from the bench versus on television, because, well...front row watching Craig Kimbrel would best anything.
But, the fact that the band even responded, when, well...oh, who am I kidding, it's still a blast to poke fun at Nickelback.
As you were, everyone.
