When the NBC Sports Network can’t get ads for Farmers Insurance, this must be the next best thing …

One indication that the NBC Sports Network lacks in a strong advertiser base is how many times during the NHL playoffs that we’ve been exposed to this one particular spot — a bunch of talking barnyard animals lament how their owner looks so lonely as “she’s out walking the cornfield again” since it’s difficult for her to meet her true love. They then suggest she tap into FarmesOnly.com, the dating service for farmers, ranchers and “good ol’ county folks.”

Google the term “animal husbandry” and see if it’s a more accurate portrayal of what’s going on here.
