30 Day TV Meme – Day 02

Day 02 – A show that you wish more people were watching Honestly, since Lost is ending, there isn’t any show I think is worth pitching.  In fact, I rather wish people watched less TV.  But if I have to come up with an answer,… Continue Reading “30 Day TV Meme – Day 02”

Mariners

I went to the Mariners game last night with Joy and some other colleagues.  Safeco Field is a perfectly nice stadium and it was a lovely night.  The retractable roof was open and it was the second home game of the season.  The place… Continue Reading “Mariners”

Super Weekend

I was so busy this weekend that I don’t even have goofy stories to tell about it. My nephew, Alex’s birthday was yesterday.  He seemed terribly bored with the gifts we brought him – the Spiderman blanket (even when I told him that it was… Continue Reading “Super Weekend”

Did CBS Listen to Peyton Manning’s Commercials?

Jason Whitlock was talking about Favre in his Fox Sports column today. He says that “Britney” Favre (he didn’t coin it) is our own fault because we keep clicking on his name. Yeah. Sorry about that. But this was his higher message: “You blame… Continue Reading “The Circus”
