As I watched the Chargers receive a second straight prime-time smack down, there was one bright spot. I was at a buddy's house, who somehow was receiving the game commercial free.

I guess that's how those Iranian cats do it.

Instead of commercials, we were treated to Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden, and Ron Jaworski's banter during commercial breaks, and I've got to tell you, it was the most interesting game I've ever watched.

They were mostly chatting about game and telling the crew to get some stats together, but I knew they were going to say politically incorrect stuff eventually.

Any one remember Al Michaels's 'S' bomb on Monday Night Football a decade or so ago when he thought his mic was off?

Jaworski advised that the lights have been turned out on out Shawne Merriman's pass rushing ability.

However, nothing beats Jon Gruden's take on the Denver Broncos "Wild Horse" offensive attack.

"I'll show you a wild horse," cracked Gruden, "...back at the hotel. I'll be the wild horse tonight."

I fell out of my seat. After that, no amount of bungling from coach Norv Turner could ruin my night (you go for it on 4th-and-forever with six minutes left in the game? Idiot).

Thanks Jon.
