Seriously, when I looked at yesterday's schedule, there was not one game that I was interested in watching. Steelers-Clots wasn't even available in LA. We were instead given the merde-pourri of Vikings-Redacteds, Cowboys-Falcons, RAMMIT-Texans, and Shitty Clippers-Jaguras. And then on Sunday night, we were given Pats-Broncos? Yeah Right. Now that
Thought you were done with me, huh?
Nope! Because the Pittsburgh Steelers had a bye in the week just concluded, you get an update on where they are this season.
Also, because it's me, you get it in homophonic pictorial form.
Okay, let's start. I originally said that this season would hinge on
Yesterday, I tried to combine two tortures into one, wanting the Open Thread to serve as a "Walking Dead" recap as well. However, like reading Uproxx whilst drinking a Bud Light, my day clearly fell apart and so I decided to keep the Thread pure and hold the recap over
Today is, arguably, one of the greatest days in the calendar year for 'Murricans. We are smack dab in the middle of a glorious three-day Memorial Day Weekend (four, if you were smart and took off on Friday) and there is nothing to do all day except for consuming large
So around about the time Brock Lesnar was putting down Goldberg at Wrestlemania ("SUPLEX CITY, BABY!" - Tom Cable), the war was starting on "The Walking Dead". About 90 minutes later, I wish I'd actually been watching it, a feeling I hadn't had all year. It took a predictable Wrestlemania
Well, the stage is (somewhat) set for the finale.
This episode felt like a compilation episode. There were three distinct plot points, and the episode devoted equal time to each, sorting them out by the end and making it clear where things are heading into Week 16. And just like a
So just when I think this show is running downhill, I come to the realization that I've set my bar too high.
This week's episode was a continuation of events from three episodes back, when Eugene announced he's Team Negan & Negan killed the Sanctuary's doctor. But it starts at Hilltop,
First, a little musical accompaniment to accompany your reading pleasure:
Are you enjoying your day so far? Excellent. We've already been treated to quite a spectacle. I myself started the morning games with a Mighty Leaf vanilla tea, because it was 10:00 AM and beer hasn't gone with Cheerios since university.
A good episode of "The Walking Dead". So good, in fact, that I'm using a special
to indicate such.
Last week, in the comments to the recap of “Rick & Michonne’s Romantic Getaway”, JustStopDude made the prescient observation that "If you just removed the zombie element from the show…this show would have been
Da Fuq did I just say up there?
OK, my cheese may or may not have slipped further off my cracker a little more this week I'm afraid. Also, the word "theme" might have gotten stuck in my head for a little while I was trying to decide on a theme
This fricking show.
Sure, there were actual zombie kills this week. And the situation they found themselves in seemed plausible given the context of the show. But the constant need to intermix the relationship between the two with the tasks at hand keep the show mired between full-on soap opera and
I don't even know.
I can tell you that I watched the Oscars with my wife, looking for my future wife.
I will die on these hills.
The whole fuck-up at the end was my reward for sticking it through until the end, which was some time after 9:00 Best Coast time.
