I’d Like to Ride Those Waves

I am completely incapable of skateboarding; I just simply cannot do it, I can’t ever get the coordination right. That said, I’m sure I could make an EXPERT surfer, or at least I could try. I just need some expert coaching. Perhaps these ladies could help with that…

The Twins’ New Home Looks AWESOME

If, like me you want to see the place where the Boston Red Sox will be winning their first game of the 2010 baseball season, or more specifically where the Minnesota Twins will be calling home for the next couple decades you’re in luck! Via the local Minnesota Public Radio station comes this slideshow “walking-tour” of the new Target Field and quite frankly, it looks DOPE. I’m more than willing to go to that first game if someone wants to buy me tickets and airfare. I’ll take care of a hotel on my own because I’m that good a guy.

Josh McDaniels Really Wants to Win the Matriach-Fornicating Game

I’m consistently shocked by awfulness of the NFL Network’s game broadcasts, they’re simply incredibly bad, I feel like I’m watching high school football half the time. Unlike MLB network whose game coverage is at least as good as the main networks, it’s as though the NFL has no desire to put any solid efforts into their productions or in making THEIR product look good.

The latest example was in their Thanksgiving Day broadcast of the Broncos/Giants game, theoretically one of the most-watched games of the year on the nascent network, it being a major holiday that for many families is centered AROUND FOOTBALL. After coming back from a commercial break they had a highlight package lined up featuring Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels talking to his offense who had just failed to capitalize on a 1st and goal situation. You’d think, it having been edited and reeled up they would have noticed that in the first THREE SECONDS he drops a “motherfucker.” Of course, they DON’T notice it, and it goes out on the air, they didn’t even ACKNOWLEDGE it until after the NEXT commercial break, several minutes later. That’s some fine TV production there boys.

When he was asked after the game how he felt about his swearing going out on the NFL network, Josh McDaniels, who clearly knows how woeful the NFL network is, looked completely unsurprised and merely said, “It’s the NFL Network, It doesn’t surprise me.
