Greenlit Twenty 10

Another Upfront Week is in the books for the major television networks.  Their plans for the fall have been announced and previews of the upcoming new series’ have been presented.  Some current shows have moved around.  Other favorites have been eliminated from the canvas.  It’s the ultimate reality show…who will drown after one episode, who will stick around a few weeks, and who will ultimately make it to the finish line with another season pick up.

Here’s the PDF of the grid as it stands now.  Schedules are always subject to change, so don’t be surprised if the actual grid looks differently come fall.

WWIR: Hodgepodge

Everything but the kitchen sink…

  • Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town: I decided to sit down the other day and actually write out my Christmas List.  Now this would be the list of things I’m buying for other people, not what I want.  It’s incredibly difficult for me to write a Christmas List for the things I want since I never really know what I want.  Anyway…I discovered that I’ve got most of the list filled out.  Not bought, mind you, but I definitely know what I want to get people.  And really…isn’t that half the battle?
  • Crafty Ashley: On Saturday, my friend Ashley and I went to the local craft fair.  We missed getting to go together last year because I left early for Thanksgiving.  This year I’m, again, leaving early for Thanksgiving, but Ashley also is going to Europe with her husband.  So, when we found out that they had moved the craft fair up to this past weekend instead of this coming weekend, we were so excited.  We have a lot of fun just seeing all the things that people take copious amounts of time to perfect.  I bought a couple Christmas gifts there, too.
  • Mail from a Psycho: A couple weeks ago, I was buying some cards at Hallmark and found the perfect Get Well Soon card for Tyler Hansbrough, Psycho-T, since he’s been sitting out practice and games with his stress reaction.  It actually said, “Get Well Soon from one of your biggest fans.”  No joke.  Anyway, I had to buy it and send it.  Surprisingly enough, on Monday, I received a response from Tyler.  Someone in the Carolina Basketball office kindly drafted a sweet thank you note to me with words that made it obvious SOMEONE had read my card, and Tyler personally signed it.  It was a shock to me because I never really expect them to respond to me.  I mean really…who am I that they need to take the time to do that?  But I really did appreciate it.  It made my otherwise horrid day much more pleasant.
  • Horsepower: For the first time this NFL season, I actually looked at the standings.  If the season ended today, the Colts would get a wild card spot in the playoffs.  I can hardly believe it.  I guess hope really can spring up when you least expect it.  I was really happy with the way they played against the Texans in the second half.  You could see from the stats that Peyton was patient in dissecting the Texans’ defense in the first half and then just let ’em have it in the second.  Now that, my friends, is REAL Colts Ball.  Of course I reserve the right to be highly annoyed with them after this Sunday night when we play the Chargers…a team we apparently have some kind of mental block on.
  • The Enemy Within: NBC cancelled the new series My Own Worst Enemy this past week, and after seeing Monday’s episode, I’m incredibly hacked off at them for it.  It was getting so good and a whole new can of worms was opened.  Now, we’ll never know the outcome.  Thanks a lot viewing public…yeah…that’s you I’m talking to.  🙂
  • Lynch Mob: John Lynch, whom I’ve spoken about on this blog before, announced his retirement from the NFL on Monday afternoon in Tampa, FL.  While I completely understand and support his decision, I’m still very sad to see him go.  He’s going to start broadcasting games, so that should be fun if I ever get to see one of the games he does.  But his undying devotion to his teammates is rarely, if ever, matched in the league.  Thanks for the memories, John.

Ok.  That’s all I got for now.  In the next couple days, I’m going to put up my solution to the overtime problem in college football and the NFL.  It’s kind of a mix of both worlds.  We’ll see how you like it.  Stay tuned…

WWIR: Linkapalooza

Before I get into WWIR, I want to remind everyone to go out and VOTE next Tuesday. I actually voted last night via in-person absentee balloting at my local government center. I don’t care who you’re voting for. That is your decision, but PLEASE VOTE!

It’s Wednesday. Can you believe it? The weeks just seem to be flying by. I swear May was just yesterday, and here we are less than 2 months from Christmas. I need to get my shopping list together. Just so you know, I’m going to do a separate entry for Late Night with Roy. I had so much fun that I think it deserves its own write-up.

I’m calling this week’s WWIR “Linkapalooza” because I’ve got tons of links to share with you and my very first blog poll. In fact, let’s start with that.

  • When I was driving back from Chapel Hill on Saturday it was raining. In some places it was pretty heavy, and I started to notice that A LOT of cars on the road did not have their lights on. Now, I know that most cars these days have daytime running lights, but those are front headlights, not back taillights. When I was learning how to drive, it was (and still is) a state law in Florida that you have to turn your lights on when it’s raining. In fact, it’s kind of an unwritten rule that if you turn on the windshield wipers, you turn on the lights. I’m guessing it’s not a law in every state or people just don’t care. Here’s the poll question:
  • I’m a huge fan of the show Supernatural. In fact, it’s probably my favorite show on television. It airs on the CW on Thursday nights at 9pm if you’re interested. This past Thursday night’s show included a little gift to the viewers at the end when the episode was actually over. During the episode there was a scene where one of the main characters was air drumming to Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” while lying down in the front seat of the car. The other main character was supposed to tap on the roof of the car to cue the actor drumming to stop and go on with the rest of the scene. Well the roof tapper wondered what would happen if he didn’t give the cue…what would the other actor do? Well here is your answer. I’ve watched this video about 10 times now, and it just gets better EVERY TIME.
  • Speaking of TV, one of my favorite shows last season was Moonlight. It didn’t get renewed for this season. I think it was mainly a victim of the writer’s strike because it had a pretty good cult following. Being the good loyal viewer that I was, I chose to not watch the show that took its time slot this season just on principle…plus I’m not a huge fan of the actress who was the main character in the replacement show. Well, this week CBS cancelled The Ex List, which was the replacement on Friday nights at 9pm. Serves them right is all I can say.
  • One last thing about TV: if you get the Planet Green channel (it’s a Discovery Channel channel), please watch Emeril Green tomorrow night (Thursday) at 8pm ET. One of the members of my church family is going to be on the show. The episode is titled Sunday Dinner, and here is the description:
    • Emeril Green
      Sunday Dinner

      TV-G
      Ray has a high-powered Army job that he balances out with a love of cooking. Every Sunday he hosts dinner for his church group and needs new exciting dishes. We’ll help him make Cola-Braised Pot Roast with Vegetables and Peaches and Cream Bread Pudding.
  • I haven’t seen this on network TV, but it’s the new Peyton Manning MasterCard Commercial. Personally I like the 6’5” 230 pound QB, laser rocket arm one and the cut that meat commercials, but this is pretty funny. You have to pay attention because it’s not funny if you don’t realize that the people in opposing cities are saying these things to him. Here’s the making of the video as well. And on November 2nd, you can go here to send a personalized message to a friend from Peyton Manning much like they did last year with the Pep Talks.
  • I’m going to stay with the topic of Peyton for just a moment. Last Friday when I was enjoying the gloriousness that is Chapel Hill, I noticed a report that the IndyStar was saying Peyton had a staph infection that caused the second surgery, which would seem to be in line with what is going on with Kellen Winslow in Cleveland and with Tom Brady in New England. Not long after I read that first report, the Colts issued an official statement regarding the allegations. It should be noted that Jim Irsay and Bill Polian absolutely HATE to issue statements. They only issue them when someone is DEAD WRONG about something or if a prominent person in the NFL or history of the NFL passes away. So, when I saw they had issued a statement, I thought to myself…oh no…the media has gone too far this time. This is the statement, which can be found on the Colts’ website:
    • “Peyton Manning developed swelling in his left pre-patella bursa in late February. The swollen bursa was treated conservatively beginning in February with drainage and anti-inflammatory medication. The first signs of infection occurred while he was in New Orleans in July.
      “It should be noted that infection developed prior to any surgery. Upon manifestation of the signs of infection, he immediately had surgery to remove the bursa sac. Concurrently, he was treated aggressively with antibiotics, and the infection was eliminated. The second procedure (tacking of the skin to eliminate the bursal space) was designed to ensure the complete and swift resolution of the bursal problem. The procedure was successful.
      “The second procedure was in no way, shape or form, related to the infection. The second procedure did not delay his rehabilitation or recovery materially. It also should be noted emphatically that, at no time, did he have MRSA.
      “It is clear from consultation with our physicians, including infectious disease specialists, that staph is a societal medical problem. There is no empirical evidence that indicates to our physicians there is a problem related to resistant staph (MRSA) with respect to the Indianapolis Colts.”
    • Basically with this statement Jim and Bill are saying we will never speak of this matter, again. And I am all for that. I’m kind of sick of talking about knees, especially Peyton’s knees. Peyton didn’t want to speak about his knees to begin with because he hates using them as an excuse, and that’s exactly what has happened. The media is using his knees as an excuse for the way the Colts are playing. I’m sorry, but if everything hinged on how well Peyton played, we never would have won the Super Bowl. He threw two fewer interceptions in the post season the year we won the Super Bowl than he threw in the sixteen regular season games combined. This team is not losing just because Peyton is playing poorly.
  • That said. Let’s speak to that. The Colts played the Titans on Monday night. I really thought the first half and part of the 3rd quarter that we looked good. That we were getting over the hump and we were going to be ok. And then the stupid penalties reared their ugly head and our inability to get our defense off the field and keep our offense on the field proved to be our downfall once, again. I’m pretty much prepared to call Amazon and ask what the bulk rate on this bookwould be. Like I said last week, we’re teetering dangerously close to that line where we have to win the rest of the games to clinch just the 2nd wild card spot. I heard on Tuesday morning that even after all this and being 3-4, we’re only 1 game out of that spot. I was ready to give up all hope on Tuesday morning. To accept reality that this was just going to be a down year. It’s harder to accept than you might think, but then I came in this morning and read one of the many blogs I read on a daily basis. Deshawn Zombie over at 18to88.com had a post that really just brought me back and said screw the critics. Let’s remember how spoiled and lucky we’ve been. Click here if you’d like to bring back the hope. But what I find even more interesting is how surprised everyone is by the Titans. Before the season started, I heard many debates on whether the Jaguars were at the point in their development that they could take over the top spot in the AFC South from the Colts. Not once did anyone mention the Titans. Have we really all forgotten that just 8 measly years ago this past January the Titans were ONE YARD away from winning the Super Bowl? Sure a lot has changed in 8 years, but still you have to remember that the Titans aren’t a terrible team.
  • On a different NFL note, one of the beat writers for the IndyStar posted this little nuggeton his blog this week. Apparently a Ph.d. candidate at Kent State University is conducting a survey on NFL football fans as part of his research for his dissertation. I’ve taken the survey, and it’s pretty straight forward. I figure why not help the guy out, so if you’ve got a few minutes click on the word nugget above and take the survey.
  • Now to my final thought. THIS IS THE LONGEST WORLD SERIES IN THE HISTORY. Ok maybe not because I didn’t actually research that to see if what’s been going on the last couple of days actually has happened before. What I do know is that Monday was supposed to be Game 5, in which the Phillies had the opportunity to end the series all together with a win. Fast forward to the bottom of the 6th when the game is tied 2-2 and the rain is pouring down so heavily, that they suspend play. It was supposed to resume last night to complete the final 3.5 innings, but Bud Selig decided at noon yesterday that it would still be raining too much that night. Guess what…it stopped raining. Sure it was still kind of yucky and windy last night, but by all accounts, they could have played. Now, fast forward to today where as of this afternoon, they plan to resume Game 5 tonight. Never mind that snow, not rain, was in the forecast for Philadelphia today. I’m still holding out hope that they’ll take this series back to Tampa for games 6 and 7, but right now I’d just like to get to the end of Game 5. GO RAYS!

Ok. Enjoy the links, and as always, thanks for reading.

Taking The Reigns

I leave y’all alone for a few weeks while I’m visiting my nephew and battling a sinus infection, and this is what I come back to?  Really?  Do I have to do everything around here?

Seriously it seems like the only people who were capable of surviving without my input was actually the last group of people I expected: ALABAMA FOOTBALL.  Interestingly enough they’re now 4-0 and ranked 8th and 10th nationally.  The wins against Clemson and Arkansas really made me smile.  Western Kentucky was certainly a great win, but Tulane left a bit to be desired even though they did still win.  Even still, Alabama seems to be surprising me left and right.  This weekend is Georgia, which is our first BIG test this season.  Georgia called for the blackout game, which means they’ll be wearing their black jerseys.  Not sure how that helps them play better, but we’ll see.

So let’s catch up on what has transpired while I was away from the blogosphere and see if we can’t get this camp back in order.

  • Former UTEP basketball coach Don Haskins passed away on September 7th.  He coached the then Texas Western College basketball team to a National Championship in 1966.  The story of that team was dramatized in the movie Glory Road with Josh Lucas playing the coach.  It’s a fabulous movie if you’ve never seen it.  Coach Haskins changed the face of Division I Basketball by selecting African-Americans to play for him.  It was an uphill battle, but he got it done and continued to coach at UTEP until 1999.  He’s quite possibly the only person I’ve ever heard of who wasn’t afraid to stand up to Adolf Rupp, a courageous act I wish more people had been capable of.  Rest in peach, Coach Haskins.
  • The RCA Dome is scheduled to have its roof deflated on Wednesday, September 24th so that construction/expansion of the Indiana Convention Center can begin.  I think I may start a petition to keep them from doing that in the hopes that the city of Indianapolis will let the Colts move back in since Lucas Oil Stadium is CLEARLY not working for us…more on the Colts later.
  • So Michael Phelps hosted Saturday Night Live‘s season premiere.  And I wish I had fantastic things to say after that sentence.  Hilariously, wonderful things to say, but alas I do not.  Is it just me or can we no longer count on the general skits of SNL to be funny?  The best part of the show was the Palin/Clinton bit at the beginning.  It was spot on!  And then Michael came out.  The thing that bothered me the most was that Michael had mentioned to the press earlier in the week that at the table read-through the writers had nailed every topic.  So, I ask the general viewing public who may have seen the episode: what topics pertaining to Michael Phelps other than his diet and his mother were nailed that night?  I’ll give you a little bit of time…humming Jeopardy theme music…oh, can’t think of any.  That’s ok.  I can’t either.  I also noted that the locker room skit that was done when Peyton hosted was re-created for Michael.  Now, I don’t watch SNL on a regular basis so I’m not familiar with whether this skit is recurring more often than those two instances, but it seemed kind of stupid to me to repeat that skit.  All in all, I thought Michael didn’t do too badly considering the material he was given to work with, but definitely, Michael, keep your day job.
  • I have a Blackberry for work.  For those of you who don’t have one, steer clear.  They’re addictive, and they ruin your social life as well as your grammar skills.  You see the wonderful people at Blackberry have made it incredibly easy to be a horrible speller and horrible at grammar because they automatically fix things for you with auto-text.  The biggest thing they fix is contractions, i.e., if I type in arent, my Blackberry auto-changes it to aren’t.  This has become a big problem as I have noticed myself typing things that way on my regular computer, which does not auto-change them.  This in turn frustrates me and bad, bad things ensue.
  • ABC has deemed this week “National Stay At Home Week” because most of their fall programming begins this week.  I’m thrilled that the network has ordered me to stay home so I have an excuse now since every week seems to be stay at home week at my house.  But, hey…when you’ve got 56″ of glorious HDTV staring back at you, why would you go out?  Happy Fall Programming EVERYONE!
  • Before I get back to the Colts who are pretty much the only ones who REALLY couldn’t handle things without me, let me address the situation that occurred last weekend in the Denver/San Diego game.  It seems head official Ed Hochuli is the first referee to ever make a bad call or at least that’s what one would think if you read the sports section at all last week.  God bless him, he deserved better from the Football Fans of the World.  Did he inadvertently blow the whistle causing the play to end?  Yes.  Was it a mistake? Absolutely.  Was it a fumble?  Yes.  Should it have been San Diego’s ball?  Certainly, had the play been allowed to go on and San Diego recovered.  Did Ed deserve to be raked over the coals the way he was?  Absolutely NOT.  And here’s why.  HE IS FREAKING HUMAN!  Until this game is somehow not judged by humans, there will be mistakes.  Furthermore, Denver was not ahead at the time the call was made.  They still had to score a touchdown and a PAT (to tie) or a two-point conversion (to win).  That’s incredibly hard to do for any team really.  But here’s my biggest thing: San Diego doesn’t really get to complain about this.  Had they done their job during the rest of the game the outcome never would have come down to that one call.  So, if San Diego wants to point fingers at someone not doing their job correctly, perhaps someone should buy that team a mirror.  In the end, Ed Hochuli followed through with what he could do because of the inadvertent whistle.  Is it a stupid rule?  Sure, but until that rule is changed, the rule must be followed to best of our ability as humans.  Ed ended up apologizing profusely during the game and afterwards when really one “I’m sorry, I made a mistake” would have been enough.  Instead, the NFL chose to announce to everyone that he would be marked down for his error in the game.  Every official is marked down for every little mistake they make in a game.  This is not news.  The NFL threw Ed under the bus by fueling the media fire with that one.  Death threats and hate mail were sent, which by the way, if you sent one…get a life.  Ed actually came out and said he was devastated by what had happened.  Yes, people…Ed Hochuli deserved better from us because though he didn’t necessarily give us his best that Sunday afternoon, he has given us his best countless times before.
  • Now to the Colts.  I don’t even know where to begin.  I think the new stadium is cursed or maybe it’s the whole team.  The lack of a run defense is back and that has nothing to do with Bob Sanders being injured cause it sucked the first two games of the season when he was playing.  I’m really tired of having to listen to the team say we need to get better.  No, I really want you to say, “we couldn’t stop a turtle if we tried.”  I want them to say, “we really suck right now and we don’t know what the heck we’re doing” because really, that’s what it looks like right now.  I don’t want the sugar coating.  I want the brutal, honest truth…from them, not you guys.  I want them to own up to what we all can see when we watch the games.  We have no business being 1-2.  We should be 0-3 along with the Rams.  I’m quite frankly tired of the come from behind victories.  I don’t care if we go back and forth and the game is tied the whole time, but this let’s be down 15-0 going into the late third quarter or down 20-14 late in the 4th is not working for me.  I used to think it was awesome that you couldn’t count the Colts out if there was a minute or more left on the clock.  Now, it’s just plain annoying.  I got really peeved last night when Dan Patrick while doing his recap of the game said that David Garrard out-Manning’d Manning.  I took great offense to this.  Of course I know he is not playing the way we all know he can play.  I’ll be the first one to pick out every single one of his flaws, but I have NEVER understood why football games are described as this QB against that QB.  The QBs do not play each other.  Manning got outplayed by the Jags defense and David Garrard (technically the Jags running game) outplayed the Colts defense.  So, if we’re going to anoint Peyton as the king of all come from behind victories late in the 4th quarter, then just in yesterday’s games, Peyton was out-Manning’d by his own brother, Brian Griese, and Trent Edwards.  And I honestly think that we can all agree that David Garrard, Eli Manning, Brian Griese, and Trent Edwards have a long way to go before their careers can be considered in the same breath as Peyton Manning…maybe not Eli so much as the other guys…but still.  I just abhor the QB against the QB argument, so someone’s gotta come up with something better.  Thankfully…MERCIFULLY…this is our BYE week, so we can’t lose.  I still love every single one of my boys including Freddie “pass interference on 4th and 1 with 29 seconds left” Keiaho, but I certainly don’t have to like them all that much right now.  Pull it together guys.

Alright.  That’s all I got for right now, but now that I’m back perhaps we can restore some order around here.

Monday Musings

I haven’t done a catch up list or newsworthy highlights in a while, so I thought I’d go that route today.

  • I saw/watched some movies this weekend. 
    • I’ve been Netflixing all of Alex O’Laughlin’s (Mick St. John on the now cancelled CBS show Moonlight) other roles.  That man has done some WEIRD movies, but he’s not half bad in them.  So, far I probably would only recommend August Rush where he plays the brother of Jonathan Rhys Meyers’s character.
    • I watched the second installment of the National Treasure movies.  It appears they’ve set it up for a third.  The second one was pretty good although I didn’t much care for Ed Harris playing a bad guy.
    • My friend Jessica and I went to see Iron Manon Saturday.  I’m a sucker for a Robert Downey, Jr. movie where he plays a sarcastic, smart a$$.  Oh wait, that’s all his roles except Chaplin.  In any case, this movie was really good.  I know ZERO about comic book super heroes.  My knowledge of super heroes was learned through movies and not the comic books they were based on.  I didn’t really like that everyone knows he’s the Iron Man.  I like it more when there’s maybe one of two people who know who the super hero is like Bruce Wayne/Batman has Alfred and Lucius.  Can anyone who has read the comic book on Iron Man bring me up to speed on that aspect of the character?
    • I watched The Holidayon Sunday night.  It was on one of the 800 Encore channels I get.  I was a little reluctant because I’m not a Jude Law, Kate Winslet, or Cameron Diaz fan.  So, basically I was watching for Jack Black, which in my opinion is plenty reason to watch anything.  However, I was pleasantly surprised.  The story was on the surface a bit predictable, but it was a cute little romantic comedy that had an underlying theme of finding and standing up for yourself.
  • Summer has come early here.  I grew up in Florida where it pretty much stays hot all year long except for those 2 weeks in December when it’s 40 degrees in the morning, but I gotta tell you, this weekend in Virginia was ridiculous.  It was so hot outside on Sunday afternoon when I was running errands that I got nauseous.  And the kicker is that it was cooler in Florida this weekend.  One of my co-workers sent me this little tidbit today:
    • It’s 6pm in Baghdad, and the heat index puts the temperature at 94 degrees.  It’s 10:45am in DC and the heat index puts the temperature at 99 degrees.  Now granted most of us are not outside holding automatic weapons and trying to stay alive, but still, DC is not the desert.
  • The College World Series teams are almost set.  North Carolina is through for the 3rd straight year.  They made it to the finals the last two years, so I’m hoping this is the 3rd time’s the charm deal.  This is the only time of year when I actually pay pretty good attention to baseball.  I LOVE college baseball.  I don’t really understand how I can watch college baseball and then be bored to tears watching the major league, so don’t ask me to explain.
  • Is it just me or are the number of DUI arrests of “celebrities” going up?  Now these may have been off your radar, but in the last week, Ty Lawson (UNC Basketball player), Cedric Benson (Chicago Bears football player), and Kenny “the Snake” Stabler (Former Alabama football player) were all arrested and charged with some form of driving under the influence.  Now my thought is that if you’re going to drink, please be responsible enough to NOT get behind the wheel.  Call a cab, hire a car, take a designated driver with you, but for crying outloud DO NOT GET BEHIND THE WHEEL.   
    • In Ty’s case, he’s underage and apparently his breathalyzer didn’t register over the legal limit, but he was arrested for other stupid things relating to the traffic stop he found himself in.  Just a thought, but maybe you oughta go ahead and hire that agent, dear. 
    • Cedric is on his second DUI arrest in the same month.  I’m thinking his days as a Bear are numbered.
    • Kenny…well I don’t know what to think there.
  • Tomorrow I will be two months out from my 30th birthday.  Yesterday, I told someone I was 30.  I died a little inside when I said it.  The bonus is that I talked to my best friend last week and she told me that she’s getting married.  The wedding is August 8th (two days before my birthday), so YEA…I’ll have something to preoccupy my thoughts!  Congratulations Angela and Rob!

Planning Ahead

The television network upfronts were this week. Upfronts are when the networks unveil their fall and midseason replacement lineups. I am most upset about Moonlight being cancelled. I’m trying to hold out hope that some network out there (even if it’s FX or USA) will pick it up and keep it going. I mean people organized Red Cross Blood Drives to save the freaking show for crying out loud. In any case, below is the grid I make every year when the upfront come out. View the pdf version of it here.
