Like many people, Fox Sports broadcasters Joe Buck and Troy Aikman seem to see pregame military flyovers as wasteful and obnoxious. Here's a clip from Sunday's Packers-Buccaneers broadcast, sent in by a tipster:

For those with hearing loss, here's the booth banter. Just imagine all of it said sarcastically:

JOE BUCK: Welcome to Big Noon Saturday!TROY AIKMAN: That's a lot of jet fuel just to do a little flyover.BUCK: That's your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work!AIKMAN: That stuff ain't happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket. I'll tell you that right now, partner.
