--I forgot how much fun baseball can be and then I watched the Twins and Tigers on Tuesday. Just great, great stuff.
--I hate you Darren McFadden.
--Of course Taco Bell is test marketing cupcakes and smoothies. Don't bother looking here it's only at a couple of spots in California.
--I expected a lot more, but Bored to Death has been aight. Apparently good enough to be renewed. Californication has already been renewed too and that’s a very good thing. And holy crap Susan Sarandon’s daughter, Eva Amurri, those are very good things.
They have some things in common
--Alga Sanders, 18, told cops he thought it would be funny to lace some brownies with pot. He was right, but society has yet to catch up and find this funny as well so it didn’t turn out so good for Alga. He brought brownies to school to celebrate his last day because he was done with getting his GED (shocker). Now he’s facing nine felony counts of poisoning food. Lesson is? Don’t waste pot on unappreciative people.
--I’m not gonna watch anyway, but replacing Maura Tierney with Lauren Graham on Parenthood is a definite upgrade.
--Quote and Mother of the Year candidate all in one story. 18-year-old Colton Harris-Moore is alleged to be responsible for over 50 burglaries in Eastsound, WA (when is Eastbound coming back?). Sometimes all he does is break into homes and lay on the couch to relax his bare feet. But he kept getting harassed so he tried to find something to combine his love of freedom with his love of stealing. So the next logical step is? Yep, he’s apparently stealing small aircraft. Three to be exact so far. This is very Catch Me If You Can-ish. There’s a facebook fan club and t-shirts are being made too in honor of Colton and the cops, as you might expect, aren’t too happy about all this. He’s been in and out of trouble most of his life and started his recent spree last year after he broke out of a halfway house. His moms, “I hope to hell he stole those airplanes – I would be so proud. But put in there that I want him to wear a parachute next time.” This will be coming in movie form to you soon.
--In two weeks we get Top Chef Restaurant Wars at RM Seafood which I checked out a few weeks ago. Obviously good stuff. Then we get Natalie Portman as a guest judge at Craftsteak. Fan-freakin-tastic! On Southbound Food we’re gonna start having the latest Top Chef contestant eliminated on the show each week. I expect to hear from Robin very soon.
--Listen Heroes, kill Claire. Yes, her character has gotten so tired out that I’m recommending offing her before her kiss with Madeline Zima.
--A new entry on Threat Down for Colbert. Raccoons. The first line from the USA Today: Sheriff’s investigators in Florida are on the lookout for five raccoons who “gang attacked” and elderly woman this weekend.
Apparently she wouldn’t let them hang out on her front porch likes kids at a Stop n Go so she shooed them away. But being old and all, she fell down. Cue gang attack.
Stop the madness.
--I need to watch Anvil! The Story of Anvil don’t I?
--Wow, good lesson for the kids. Act like a diva biya, beat up those who you dwarf, ask your opponent about modeling while the game is going on and then you’ll be able to go from one of the worst teams to one of the best. Braylon Edwards knows how to play it.
--I’m supposed to be surprised noted flake Lamar Odom asked Claudia Jordan to marry him a few weeks before asking Khloe? It’s gotta be weird for a basketball player to be married to someone he can’t back down in the post. Who’s moving Khloe off the block? Seriously, she would destroy David Anderson down low.
--I watched about five minutes the other night when MNF was on commercial. Really Michael Irvin? Tom DeLay has two broken feet and he still beat your score? Emmitt was a freakin’ wunderkind on this show and yet you probably won’t even see the midway point.
--Testosterone thy name is Sons of Anarchy. I like how similar to True Blood the last 30 seconds every week are ECW Ho-ly Sh** worthy moments.
--Worst set of Glee songs yet, but it was nice to be reminded of high school days and nights filled with ephedrine.
--Slim Thug with Wyatt Cenac on Daily Show this week = gold.
--Also gold is this Community remix. The more Ken Jeong the better.
--Okay TBS, I get it. George Lopez has a show on your network. Didn’t you learn anything from last year’s ridiculously overhyped Frank Caliendo spots? I did like George's Lopezuela jersey though.
--Is there anything better in sports than a Game 7? Hell yes, a Game 5 of the WNBA Finals!
--Tracy Morgan is on twitter. You have been told.
--Brooks Brothers is going to start selling Mad Men suits?!
