Something Amusing About the Vikings/Giants Game in Detroit

I feel for the two teams and their fans having no place to play yesterday due to the Metrodome roof collapse, but for some reason I don't feel for the game announcers - Joe Buck and Troy Aikman. I'm watching the game right now on NFL Sunday Ticket and I couldn't help but laugh when their faces popped up on the screen. Their mouths said "Hello and welcome to the game," but their eyes said "This sucks!"

This was to be Fox's headliner game yesterday, so they sent their flagship announcing crew to Minneapolis to cover it. I wonder how troublesome the weather conditions and venue change was for them (hopefully, a lot). Joe and Troy were expecting to play to a large national audience and now they're stuck calling a game only being shown in very limited markets or on DirectTV. Plus, in about an hour, most everyone but Vikes and Giants fans are gonna switch to the Ravens/Texans game. Maybe I'm just sick in the head, but this amuses me.

I have no real problem with Troy AIkman, but I just can't find anything to like about Joe Buck. Many at CSC can't stand either of them. To those, I hope you're just as amused as I am right now.
