I decided it would be a good time to remember the ads we saw on TV as we saw our Sox win it all for the first time in 88 years. Here are some I remember:

-The Gatorade commercial that showed Jordan missing his shot against the Cavs
-Babe Ruth calling his shot because of Bud Light
-State Farm stadium trivia
-Flinstones Midas commercial (I think)

The only "commercial" I remember is Joe Buck mentioning Prison Break every 10 seconds.

Remember during game 3 when they showed that commercial for game 4? That was awesome.

I was thinking of starting an "I love 2005" (like the VH1 series) thread in the PARKING LOT because somehow every thread 20 posts or greater ends of with a reference to it.

2005 BABY, WOOOO!!!!!

-Babe Ruth calling his shot because of Bud Light
I forgot about that one! "Bud Light! Bud Light! Bud Light!"
-State Farm stadium trivia
Was that the one with the nighttime aerial picture of Atlanta's Fulton County Stadium?

After the World Series was over, Boerhs & Bernstein had a similar topic on their show; another one they mentioned was the commercial for Chevy with the giant cartoon umpire making the safe sign for Jermaine Dye's new truck. They also mentioned the disembodied head of Barbara Bush seen in the background behind home plate in Houston.

I wasn't there but man this video gives me goosebumps and makes me feel like I was there every damn time (the guy taping this is kind of annoying but we thank him anyway for putting this up)...

I've got you all beat.

Head Cases, the hot new legal drama with Chris O'Donnell was promoted up the ass during the 05 series if I'm not mistaken. And then the show promptly bombed after two episodes.

I love those... my friend and I were watching the Duke/Indiana game from 2002 tourney and CBS was promoting the HELL out of some stupid talking baby show that I only think lasted 1 episode. It was great hearing them just ramble about it like the next big thing.

I guess 10 days to Opening Day is too long for some people....

The Ipod commercial with Eminem's song from 8 Mile with the orange background was constantly on; also the Fox promos for "Stacked", the thankfully short lived Pamela Anderson sitcom.

Let's not forget the MLB "I Love This Game!" commercials that a fan from each team in the post-season did. The guy who did the one for the White Sox is also in the Sox Pride DVD. :cool:
