Video: NBC's football crew offsets its "green week" stupidity

Remember when Bob Costas and co did their pre-game by candlelight a few weeks ago? Well, whatever ergs they offset that night they un-offset with their Christmas set tonight. A friend of mine emailed me to say that on tonight’s set they have more lights than a Joan Rivers birthday cake. Sure enough.

What they’re saying in the clip is lame (as usual) and really doesn’t matter. It’s the lights all over the set that you should pay attention to. That set looks like Clark Griswold and Tim “the tool man” Taylor might have joined forces to light it.

For reference, here’s a clip from NBC’s “green week” edition of Football Night in America.
