Celebrity All-Star game logically opts for old Batman visuals

Unlike the placement of the onomatopoetic graphics from the 60s Batman show, these weren't placed where the action took place, which completely confused us.  See, when Batman punched the Riddler's henchmen, a "POW!" would appear where he punched the evildoer.  So what kind of "Swish!" was happening in the paint here?  Did someone get pantsed?  And that "Clang!" — did someone shoot a BB into AC Green's chastity boxers?

And why wasn't ESPN cheesy enough to slap a "Pow!" up there each time they showed Gasol in the crowd? 

Or "Yummy!" every time they showed 355lb. actor/comedian Chris Tucker?

Or "Who?!" every time they showed the guy from Desperate Housewives.

Tune in next week.  Same Bat time, Same Bat Channel!

    The Batman graphics coupled with three teams playing at one time really cements this game as utterly retarded.

    Globetrotters vs. East. vs. West. Or was it a handicapped match?
