The NFL has been doing this gimmick for years. Every year a couple of days before the Super Bowl, a couple of players from each team will face off, playing out the Super Bowl via Madden or some other football game.
The suits behind these "exhibitions" end up offering footage via satellite to local news stations, and chances are good it'll pop up somewhere. Can you say 'free commercial?'
More corporate shilling...feh.
Corporate shilling, sure, but important corporate shilling, as it decides the outcome of the game. Since every year the player who wins the video game's team goes on to win the superbowl.

Darn, I hate getting on my highhorse and then get knocked off. Damn Saddle Sores... Well he did get the location wrong so I'd call it a PUSH LoL
Anyone watch it? The wrestling portion started on a sour note when idiot Coach (and Snow) totally dissing and undermining Lillian Garcia in favor of J.J. Stupid Fools. He's officially on My Bad List, and once your there, it's in stone. Lillian is light years sexier then her!
Jericho, Rey, Victoria, and Trish all get introduced and Jericho and Rey start it out. It was less of a match and more of an exhibition. It was alright they all went through their normal spots. Rey was going for the pin and Victoria interfered, Trish ran in and pulled Victoria off. The guys took it to the outside and the girls started battling... Shirts came off quickly. Nice move when Victoria went for the spiders web and Trish reversed it with a very impressive spinning headscissors. Trish put Victoria on the top rope to do the StratusFear but Victoria blocked Trish upside, did a bit of a pant pull tease but Trish got her legs around Victoria's head and hit the SFear. Off came Victoria pants a chick kick to the chest and the pin for Trish. Little odd seeing a woman (Victoria) in her undergarments wearing a knee brace!
Funniest part was Rey got in the ring (I think Trish is taller LoL) and celebrated with Trish with a hug and raising eachother hand. Rey lift Trish's arm and she does a pirouette and then Trish does the same for Rey and he does it LoL!... Fans of Jericho with Trish ie ME. They were together out of character at the pre-show. They were going through some of the top games (Madden, Zelda, Grand Theift Auto). Jericho want's more CFL content in Madden, they put down each other driving habits and both finished with a very unintimidating Game face.

There actually was a video-game game show on TBS Saturday mornings. Starcade, was it? Little kids answered trivia and had to beat high scores to win the game. I recall they played Centipede/Millipede a lot.
Dude, Starcade is rerun on G4. It's pretty funny to watch stupid people playing aracade games. There was always 6 games to choose from. Centipede/Millipede wasnt played that often at all. Its fun to look back at the 80's

I watched the awards show when it came on after wrestling. That was the most pathetic match I've ever seen. Who was the winner? The girls came in and the guys just quit. It was a crock of shit. Plus, did Trish forget that she was supposed to be mad at Jericho?
It would be cool if they took that ring announcer instead though. I'm sure it would quadruple the ratings if Jenna Jameson was the announcer.
