NFL Network, you button-hooked me.. I didn’t know you were gonna button-hook me



The efforts of NFL Network to entice many cable providers to add the channel to its listings are well-documented, especially with the unprecendented multi-network shared broadcast of the Pats 16th win last week.  So how does the network continue its onslaught?

Well, with a three-hour video biography of Tom Petty’s rock history, obviously!

During the Saturday playoff games, NFL Network will be showing “an epic documentary exploring three decades in the history of the rock band Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers” entitled Runnin Down A Dream at 4:30pm Saturday and 1pm Sunday.

No shit.

So if a game gets out of hand, and you’re looking for more football sports of any kind a rock and roll retrospective, just flip on over to NFLN (if you have it)… who’s station tagline is–you guessed it–FOOTBALL 24-7!

    This is how it always starts. Remember when they actually cooked shit on the Food Network?

    other than a listing on the site’s tv page, i couldn’t find ANY promotional materials for this event… weird

    Football and Weed – 24.7 at least that’s marketable
