I'll watch Bill Simmons' show, but soup is definitely not the perfect food

Here's the promo for Bill Simmons' new TV show on HBO, which debuts a week from Wednesday: (WARNING - Since it's on cable, he makes a point to swear at the end.)

For the record, I've always been a fan of Simmons and I think his podcast is the best in the business.  However, I have two major gripes with this ad:

1.  Soup?  Are you kidding me?  Maybe if it was something really thick and hearty (like a chili), but that canned tomato stuff in the clip barely even qualifies as a food, let alone the perfect one.

2.  Ban the DH?  The trouble with that, Bill, is then the greatest Red Sox player of this generation, the three-time World Series champion who you also painted as a deity 20 seconds later in this very same commercial, might never have existed.  Isn't that a bit hypocritical?
