The Amazing Race Asia 2 – Ep. 1 Recap

After finding the video, I can now do a legitimate recap of the first episode of the Amazing Race Asia 2. This was the premiere episode of the second season. It was quite the whirlwind. Let’s get to it now. We start off in Singapore, the starting line for the race. As usual, lovely establishing […]

Saturday Morning Linkage

Time for some links today. Let’s get to them. First, David Scott of Boston Sports Media Watch was supposed to be a guest on Entercom-owned WRKO Friday morning. He has been critical of sister station WEEI and Program Director Jason Wolfe. For some strange reason, WRKO officials put the kybosh on his guest spot at […]

Bill Conlin is Batshit Crazy

It’s one thing for a reporter to disrespect a blogger, but it’s another for a reporter to advocate wiping bloggers out as Bill Conlin from the Philadelphia Daily News has done. Let’s start with an innocent e-mail sent by Bill B., a sabermetric Phillies fan who also runs the blog crashburnalley. After he read an […]

It's a Black Friday Megalink Day

Let’s start by saying it’s already been a crazy start to Black Friday in Massachusetts. For some strange reason, the Wrentham Mall Outlets decided to open at 12:01 a.m. today and at 4 a.m., traffic was stalled on Route 495. Really. All of the lanes going both ways were stopped. Why? For a couple of […]

NFL Picks for Thanksgiving Day

Sunday, I was much better at 11-5 for an overall record of 91-58, a winning percentage of .610. I lost with Cincinnati, New Orleans, Detroit, Chicago and Pittsburgh. The Jets found a way to beat Pittsburgh in OT and I have to realize that as long as Eric Mangini is coaching the Jets, he finds […]

Videos of the Week – WKRP in Cincinnati

One of the best sitcoms of all time (in my humble opinion) was WKRP in Cincinnati. It was produced by the MTM Studios which in the 1970’s and 1980’s, was very prolific in sitcoms and later dramas. One of the qualities of any MTM show was a strong ensemble cast and WKRP was no exception. […]
