1. Didn’t follow the first few seasons, so now it’s all about catch up & the show meeting expectations that have been built up by others. That never works out. 2. The following are some comments(I swear they are real) left by some “friends” on Facebook: A.) “BREAKING BAD is the BEST TV SERIES EVERRRRRRR… beats Dexter, beats Lost, and possibly a...

Which is perfect, really, because just when you are starting to feel good about your country during the Olympics, nothing will wipe away all that patriotism quite like having to take a couple of 3 hour flights on Jet Blue.

Summer Olympics Programming Note: Any Interest?
So, over the past 6 months I’ve secured a bunch of Tumblr URL’s as I gear up to start a “Summer Olympics in London” Tumblr. It will probably be formatted much in the same type of way the Offseason blogs have been, or maybe even like The World’s Game is set up(a bit more serious take on the sport). Anyway, I do this so that I don’t spam my followers with certain...

What the fuck is wrong with us? What I mean is, how have we evolved to produce someone like this among our population? The country, as a whole, needs to take a long look at many things, but how about we start at the question: Are you a divisive piece of the populace or do you try to do something every day to help make your community a little better in even the smallest of ways?
