Best Buy Sells Shattered TV In Time For Super Bowl Party

On this, the holiest of all American TV-watching days, we’d like to share with you the horrific story of a Florida family whose Super Bowl viewing party will be a lot less intense than they had planned. The new, expensive HDTV they purchased from Best Buy was somehow shattered inside its box, and the retailer claims that it’s the family’s fault.

A Best Buy employee loaded the box in their vehicle, and they brought the TV home only to discover that its beautiful 50-inch screen was destroyed. The family says that Best Buy blames them for the damage, and they have now filed in small claims court.
