More HBO Goodness…

leave a comment »

It appears that HBO is back to reclaim its rightful spot atop the TV spectrum. Along with How to Make it in America, which is quite entertaining I might add, comes Treme and Boardwalk Empire. Treme follows the lives of several struggling musicians in post-Katrina New Orleans while Boardwalk Empire takes place in 1920’s Atlantic City at the “dawn of Prohibition.” Both shows have serious support behind them. David Simon aka creator of The Wire is the man behind Treme and Martin Scorcese, the living legend himself, is executive producing Boardwalk Empire. For me, it all started with The Sopranos. Then The Wire. Then Curb your Enthusiasm and Flight of the Concords. I am quite confident these two shows will carry on HBO’s illustrious tradition.

Props to /Film.

Gopher Goodbye; or, In Tubby I Trust

leave a comment »

At the beginning of the season, I bet my dad 10 dollars that the Minnesota Men’s Basketball team would make the NCAA tournament. I ended up winning that bet (I’m rich!), but not without a good sweat. Today, the Gophers got eliminated from the tourney. And not surprisingly, the Tubby leaving rumors began. I sure hope he decides to stay. The Gophers have a good thing going after making back-to-back tourney’s and they only lose Damien Johnson, Lawrence Westbrook and Devron Bostick to graduation. Granted, Johnson and Westbrook have been very important but the Gophers bring back Ralph Sampson, Colton Iverson, Devoe Joseph, Blake Hoffharber and Rodney Williams. They also have a pair of 3-star recruits coming next year in addition to the possibility of landing 5-star recruit Cory Joseph, who is the brother of current Gopher Devoe Joseph. I think Tubby has started something worth finishing in Minnesota. He took a 9-22 team and morphed them into 20 game winners three consecutive years. In a couple years, maybe we can win the Big Ten, who knows? I just hope Tubby is thinking the same way.

I took Kansas to cut down the nets. But if Kentucky wins, I told ya so.
