Tuesday Throwback: Eddie Money And Geico Have Got Two Tickets To Paradise

Rocker Eddie Money, performer of fratty classics such as “Take Me Home Tonight” and “Two Tickets To Paradise”, died on Friday at the age of 70. In this 2012 Geico ad, Eddie Money happily runs a travel agency. He gleefully sings to a family that he’s got two tickets to paradise…of course though it’s a family of four. Hah.

My Sports Bar Would Be Run Better Than ESPN Zone

I was on ESPN.com the other night and saw a banner ad that said something like “Run your own sports bar”. For some reason, I thought it was a contest to win a sports bar and was thus intrigued. Then I checked…and it was an online game for building a sports bar. And no, I’m not playing. I’d like to at least think that I have better things to do with my time.

I saw the commercial for it about 5 times today. Which is what happens when you have SportsCenter on in the background throughout the morning.

The bar fight, naked guy, and puking guy did make me laugh though. And if in case you’ve never been to an actual bar or frat party, the song playing is “Take Me Home Tonight” by Eddie Money.
