A Goode First Episode? (How Many Times Will I Milk This Play On Words?)

leave a comment »

So I saw that “Goode Family” show last night. I liked it. Which means it will probably get canceled within a month.

I looked through Google News for reviews of the first episode, and there’s one that got my attention. OK, so I looked at two reviews, and this was one of them. Here’s the sub-head, or whatever it’s called:

Mike Judge’s latest tries to hard and in the end doesn’t work


Actually, that might be a fair assessment. Granted I’m not a frequent viewer of scripted television shows (insert political “townhall” joke here), but the few that I’ve seen from start to finish, it always seems that the first episode does go a bit over the top. (My first thought was “The Shield.”) Television is a tough nut to crack, so I would imagine the first episode has to reach out there and grab the audience by the collar and make them want to sit and watch. I did get that vibe from the “Goode Family” episode last night. I also laughed out loud quite a bit, even though most of the “anti-liberal” jokes have been made by me at time or another. I guess the splendor of seeing broadcast on network television made me giggle more than the actual jokes themselves. (For the record, there were a few “conservative” jabs thrown in, and I laughed at those as well.)

Keep in mind the last time I watched (by choice) a prime-time network program Andy Sipowicz was on his first day as squad commander of the 15th Precinct, so I’m not exactly a television connoisseur. However, I will keep watching this show so long as it’s on the air. Although I get the feeling Fox should be airing this program rather than ABC.

Man-Ramming Through To The All-Star Game

leave a comment »

So a topic on ESPN for the last day or so deals with Manny Ramirez and the fact that despite getting busted with illegal substances (or wanted to be the next Mr. Mom) and serving a 50-game suspension he could possibly start in the July All-Star Game. The topic then becomes should Man Ram be allowed to play if voted in by the fans.

I say sure.

Giving fans the vote for All-Star starting lineups is a joke, and this only further validates my assertion. This also bolsters my faith in the Electoral College. Besides, nothing says “This All-Star Game Counts Because The Winning League Gets Home Field Advantage” like starting someone who has only played a handful of games.

Losing At The Lottery

leave a comment »

I hope you’re sitting down for this one. My office pool didn’t win the latest Powerball drawing. Yeah, I’m shocked, too.

As I spoke with the coordinator of this recent office pool, I began thinking to myself: Why is it that office pools start up when a lottery jackpot reaches $100+ million? Now if an office does a weekly batch of lottery tickets, that’s one thing. However, to suddenly go, “OK, I think $90 million is an acceptable amount to start throwing our money away,” doesn’t make sense. You’re GOING TO LOSE whether the jackpot is $1 million or $100 million. Then again, someone always has to win this crock.

You know, part of me wants to win the lottery just so I can go up on that stage during the press conference and say, “And for all these years I thought the lottery was a waste of money, especially for the disproportionate amount of people who squander their limited capital on a near-impossible chance of winning.” Either that or answer the question of lump sum/annuity with, “Lump sum because I don’t know what President Hussein has in store for me after this tax year.”

Of course then the NY Times will mysteriously discover all the gay porn I download, to which I’ll accuse the Gray Lady of being homophobic. And good times will be had by all.

Powerball Printouts

leave a comment »

So today at work someone from another organization in the building asked if I wanted to go in their office pool for the Powerball drawing. Guess it’s up at $100+ million or something. Of course I said, “sure.” Even though playing the lottery is like flushing your money down the toilet, I put in my $5 in these stupid things. After all, if I don’t these people will probably win, and I don’t want that.

Having worked at a Quickie Mart during college, I’ve seen my fair share of Lottery People — those people that complain they can’t get ahead and that the Man is holding them down, yet always manage to play 20+ numbers every day in various State-sponsored lotteries. And one tradition to the beloved office pool is making sure everyone who takes part gets a copy of all the numbers drawn from that particular pool.

What’s the point?

Look, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO WIN THE POWERBALL. Don’t bother giving me this sheet because I’m just going to throw away this piece of paper. Did I say “throw away”? I meant “recycle.” Got to lessen my carbon footprint and all. Anyway, if nobody comes into work tomorrow and I hear on the radio/Internet that the winning Powerball number was drawn in my redneck of the woods, I’ll somehow manage to connect the dots.

Making His Mark In Radio

leave a comment »

One of the many reasons I find Mark Madden entertaining. Today’s poll question on his radio station’s website:

Who is your favorite Kennedy?
* Jamie Kennedy
* Mr. Kennedy
* Ted Kennedy
* The Dead Kennedys
* Tyler Kennedy
* Vincent Kennedy McMahon

If you don’t get the joke, here’s Wiki.

His dismissal from ESPN 1250 came on the heels of an inflammatory comment Madden had made regarding Senator Ted Kennedy’s then-recent cancer diagnosis when he said “I’m very disappointed to hear that Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts is near death because of a brain tumor. I always hoped Sen. Kennedy would live long enough to be assassinated. I wonder if he will receive a get well card from the Kopechne family?

It’s only a matter of time before Mark gets another full-time sports talk show, either on WXDX or a Clear Channel talk station somewhere in town. And when he does I wouldn’t be surprised if he crushes the godawful 1250 ESPN radio.

Bite Worse Than His Bark

leave a comment »

Hey, don’t write checks with your mouth that your tricep can’t cash.

An instructor at the Connecticut Police Academy has been charged with disorderly conduct after he allegedly responded literally to a co-worker’s “bite me” remark. Francis Woodruff, a former Waterbury police captain, was arraigned Tuesday and released on a promise to appear in court.

He was accused of biting the arm of 42-year-old Rochelle Wyler, a license and applications analyst at the academy, on April 24.

According to the arrest report, she was left with teeth marks and bruising on her left triceps.

Wyler filed a complaint April 28, alleging the 51-year-old Woodruff was agitating her by calling her a clerk. She said she responded with “bite me”—and he did.

Woodruff, who also is a training co-ordinator with the Meriden Police, told authorities he was joking around.

I know it’s not quite the same thing, but for some reason this came to my mind after reading the above article.

This is going to be the section where I talk about how everything I say is taken out of context. I will then go on and blame the liberal media.
