>>>An Arizona man has admitted he was the one who interrupted the 2009 Superbowl broadcast to thousands of cable subscribers and replaced it with footage from an X-rated porno flick, according to published news reports. Frank Tanori Gonzalez pleaded guilty to two counts of computer tampering in a plea agreement that called for him to pay a $1,000 fine and serve three years of probation. If he successfully meets the terms, the crime will be downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor

snip

The lewd footage replaced the live broadcast of the Superbowl just seconds after Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald completed a dramatic touchdown in the last three minutes of the game. Arizona ended up losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers. (NSFW>redacted<NSFW)


The X-rated clip was aired over the standard definition broadcast delivered to Comcast subscribers viewing the match on local TV station KVOA. A high-definition feed was unaffected.<<<

Gonzalez was an employee of Cox Communications who served as a liaison to competing cable provider Comcast


Makes sense, after all he did work for Cox Communications. :P

Pity he didn't do that to some of the awful programming on TV where porn would be an improvement.
