It's funny to see them get all excited about something we all know will turn out to be an absolute piece of crap.
Season 3, episode 4, "The Arrangements." All that business with Jai Alai was hilarious and I think that may have been a more obvious lemon since most of the viewers despite their young age would have known that the sport doesn't exist today in any popular capacity (unless you live in Latin America or the Phillipines, according to wikipedia). Sounds like a terribly brutal sport as well: "jai alai -- Basque for 'merry festival' -- can be decidedly un-merry on a bad point. The hard-as-a-rock pelota travels as fast as 180 miles per hour and can easily crush a player's skull or knock out a few teeth."

I wonder if the Vega will sink what's left of SCDP? The series' end is nearing, so it makes sense that there will be some posturing for that as the season completes.
Is it possible that Don will spend season 7 outside the realm of advertising? What did Don say to Ted? "The game is fixed," or something like that. Either way, brilliant writing to merge SCDP with CCS. Did anyone expect that to happen?
