    9 Worst Pre-Game and Halftime Gimmicks

    While sporting events are always intended to be spectacles to be embraced by fans and non-fans alike, it’s easy to get carried away and offer up some pretty asinine pre-game and halftime ceremonies (some official, some…not) that just make everyone groan. Sometimes sporting events should just focus on sports and leave the pomp and circumstances […]
