Your Winners and Losers for the Pats-Giants Game

As the news broke late this afternoon that the NFL was going to have CBS and NBC simulcast NFL Network’s feed of Saturday’s Patriots-Giants game, I was thinking who won and who lost. Right off the bat, you can see some obvious winners like the majority of NFL fans who now won’t have to resort […]

From One Network and 3 Local Channels to Every Single Channel

Consider this. In one fell swoop this afternoon, the Pats-Giants game went from the NFL Network and 3 local channels to over 300 network affiliates. Had the NFL made this decision earlier, we would not have been in this mess. And why wasn't Fox awarded the game as well? More later.

The Amazing Race Asia 2 – Ep. 5 Recap

After last week’s boring episode and piss-poor behavior of Rovilson & Marc and Terri, I was thoroughly disgusted and decided not to do a recap. This week’s episode was much better, although the behavior from the aforementioned didn’t improve by much, there was more suspense. But looking back on Episode 4, it appeared to me […]
