Bing Ads Appear on Seahawks' Jerseys

For some reason, despite the fact that soccer teams around the world have been putting ads on their shirts for years, we here in the U.S. freak out when sports teams start talking about renting out space on their jerseys.

So it made news this week when Microsoft and the (thus far woeful) Seattle Seahawks agreed to slap a Bing ad on the Seahawks' practice jerseys (yes, the practice shirts, not whatever this was supposed to be), and then trotted out a bunch of hilarious "synergy" quotes about the deal.

Bing and the Seahawks -- they certainly make a...team. We guess.
