This is bad. Not only do they lose the big game, but Comcast in Tucson accidently broadcast part of a porn with full frontal male nudity after Fitz's TD catch during the SB broadcast. Only affected those watching an analog feed, not the HD feed - but there were probably many viewers affected.

oh man.. that is crazy.. i am curious as to how often this happens? last spring during the pens-flyers eastern conference game, my tv cut to porn for about 30 seconds. it only affected one of the two tvs we had on. it was on Versus and i live in NE ohio, so i doubt anyone one here was effected by it.

It happened in a small town near where I grew up. . . however, it was on the public access channel for probably an hour or so.

Some idiot thinks he or she is on a vcr that not wired. Then they stick in the tape and watch.

Same thin here, they probably flipped a switch and the wrong pic came up!

Awesome porn and football, I wonder when my local area is going to offer this service ;).

The religious freaky freaky's will be looking for blood tomorrow. "Oh no I saw a penis while I was watching a violent football game".

Now that is funny stuff. I am sure Comcast will be getting fined for that.

I can picture Dad calling everyone into the room for the Fitz "game winning TD" replays - then seeing this.

It's funny, but I'd be royaly pissed if my kids were younger and it happened. Almost as bad would be seeing it with my Mom in the room.

If this is true than Comcast could get swamped with lawsuits. For every child that was watching the game there is now one possible count for distributing pornography to a minor!

Am I crazy or does loading that page now say registration required?

In any case, here is the text of the story:
Tucsonans watching the Super Bowl got more action than they bargained for when a short clip from an adult movie channel interrupted Comcast's feed with full male nudity during the final moments of the game. Officials at Comcast said about 30 seconds from Club Jenna, an adult cable television channel, were shown on the local Super Bowl telecast. The company was still working Sunday night to figure out how it happened. Comcast had "no idea" at the time it happened how the porn may have gotten into its feed, said Kelle Maslyn, a company spokeswoman. The Star newsroom was flooded with calls from irate viewers who said that the porn cut into the game with less than three minutes left to play, just after Arizona Cardinals player Larry Fitzgerald scored on a touchdown pass from Kurt Warner to put the team in the lead. Callers said that the clip showed a woman unzipping a man's pants, followed by a graphic act between the two. "I just figured it was another commercial until I looked up," said Cora King of Marana. "Then he did his little dance with everything hanging out." Jeanene Piek said she was outraged that her granddaughter had seen the clip. "I was in a state of shock. I am totally disgusted," she said. The Super Bowl was being shown locally on KVOA. The station sends its signal to Comcast through a fiber line, said KVOA News Director Kathleen Choal. KVOA's signal didn't have porn on it when the station sent it over to Comcast, station president Gary Nielsen said. The company will continue to investigate what happened to its signal, Nielsen said. Engineers at Comcast will be working throughout the night to determine what happened, Maslyn said. The porn broke into the standard-definition feed reaching analog TV sets. It appears the porn only reached homes in the Tucson area, but Comcast did not know exactly how many homes were affected, Maslyn said. Comcast's high-definition feed was not affected. Maslyn did not know how many homes were affected. Comcast is the second-largest cable-television provider in Southern Arizona and serves more than 80,000 customers in unincorporated Pima County, Marana and Oro Valley.

Which could put Comcast out of business and allow someone else to take over those markets. Which, even if you're a straight guy, is well worth it.
