Hot diggity damn y'all! It's premier night for Hard Knocks on HBO!
While many folks will bitch and moan about the repetition, the tired tropes, the year-to-year story lines I am hear to tell you "Who gives a flying fuck?" To me it means football is right around the corner.
As if you didn't get enough World Cup coverage, I am here tonight because MicheladaTioRoberto has been forced to do work at inconvenient times for the Open Thread.
So, first things first. Following today's games, here is how the first two groups ended up:
GROUP A WINNER: Uruguay
GROUP A RUNNERUP: Russia
This is the moment we have all been waiting for!
Shut up, tWBS!
The wait is finally over and the real non-friendly games begin. We are starting at the ripe time of 4 AM Pacific because the Opening Ceremony to the 2018 World Cup begins at 6:00 AM Pacific and we need
A long time ago (2015 does feel like an eternity), the most-recognized American robot fighting tournament came back to TV. Yes, BattleBots came back, and there was much rejoicing. I covered the second season of it for this very website! And by covered it, I mean recapped the already taped
Hang with me. There's a logic to this.
First off, let's make it clear that this post is about this:
Later this evening, season 9 of one of our favourite shows will begin. Some of us, including me, are super excited about this.
Others, some of which I know are among us,
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,
