More Thanksgiving Eve Links

I did the Primetime & Late Night Viewing Picks early because I thought I didn’t have enough links to warrant an update, but apparently I do. First, Tom Hoffarth of the Los Angeles Daily News writes in his Farther Off the Wall blog the football viewing menu for this weekend, plus he has a tidbit […]

Monday Thanksgiving Week Links

With this being Thanksgiving Week, I don’t expect to be blogging much (we do have to get ready to see our families on Thursday), but I’ll do what I can. With that said, I still have to give you Videos of the Week (The Amazing Race episode recaps are taking more time than I expected) […]

Veterans' Day Links

Time for our links on this Veterans’ Day today. By the way, we take this moment to remember all of the fine men and women who have fought on our behalf. This is also Remembrance Day in Canada so we also recognize those who have fought on behalf of our fine neighbors to the north. […]

The Friday Megalinks, Finally

I was at a jobsite all day and didn’t get home until after 4:30 p.m. so you didn’t get them at your regular time, but better late than never. Starting off with a couple of posts from David Scott of Boston Sports Media Watch. He first wrote Wednesday about dueling press releases from Comcast SportsNet […]

A Tuesday Afternoon Update

Well, I found some linkage for this afternoon. Let’s get to them. Good friend, LC of the anti-Glenn Geffner blog, 38 Cliches, has the news that regular listeners of the Red Sox Radio Network outside of Boston won’t be able to hear Goofner during the World Series unless they log on the internet. ESPN Radio […]

Tuesday Night Stuff

Time for some links on this Tuesday night. Let me say The War is one of the best documentaries I have ever seen. It’s compelling, the footage from the front lines taken by newsreels or by official military filmmakers is amazing. And hearing how people coped at home in four cities, Waterbury, CT; Mobile, AL; […]

Monday Night Links

I just finished watching the second installment of Ken Burn’s The War on PBS. Just like The Civil War, Baseball, Jazz, Mark Twain, Empire of the Air, and The West, this epic is excellent. I saw bits and pieces of the first installment on Sunday and all of tonight’s and Ken Burns’ storytelling is second […]

Saturday Morning Links

Let’s give you some links from the Saturday papers and anything I may have missed from Friday. CNBC’s Darren Rovell has two blog entries about Texas oil tycoon Boone Pickens who has donated a lot of money towards his favorite school, Oklahoma State. I mean, a lot of money. We’re talking in the hundreds of […]

Guess Who's Back? Yes, 38Cliches is back!!!!

After six days, the 38Cliches blog is back. I received an e-mail from webmaster LC that his site went down and he’s been painstakingly trying to reconstruct it from scratch. If you go to “38Cliches.com”, you will know that the site has been taken over with a bunch of spam and banner ads. I had […]

Really Late Thursday Links

Some more links to pass to you tonight. TV Week gives us the final national ratings for sports last week. Paulsen notes that right after the news about Greg Oden being lost for the season, ESPN quickly dropped the Portland Trail Blazers opener from its schedule. And he adds that the ratings for the WNBA […]

Monday Afternoon Links

Let’s start off with more stuff from Neil Best of Newsday who wants everyone to know he’s back. When I published my first entry today, he had 10 entries. As of 2:25 p.m. ET, he has 23. The man is a blogging machine! He did break some news with the fact that WFAN has renewed […]

Tuesday Updated Links

Let’s give you a few more links today. Joseph Whip blogs about HDTV and he criticizes NBC for taking bandwidth away from its picture and thus, causing pixelation. Whip blames the Weather Plus subchannel for this. The LA Times’ Larry Stewart talks with country star Faith Hill about recording “I’ve Been Waiting All Day for […]

Monday Update

I have to start out by saying the US Open has got to work with rightsholders CBS and whomever will hold the cable contract next year (USA Network, Tennis Channel, ESPN) to allow live streaming of its matches. Right now, trying to find streams from other rightsholders has been quite difficult. EuroSport from Spain and […]

It's Tuesday or Day 2 of the D & C Lockout

I turned on WEEI this morning to see if the contract dispute between the radio station and morning show hosts Dennis & Callahan had been settled and in D & C’s place were John Rooke and Larry Johnson. I’ve worked with Rooke and he’s good as usual. There’s a reason why Larry is usually on […]

Your Monday Update

Let’s give you a few links here. Starting with CBS Sports and its ratings for the PGA Championship, the network received the 5th highest rating for the tournament since 1986. The other four? They all had Tiger playing for the win as well. CBS has had the rights for the PGA Championship since 1991. And […]

Sunday Night Linkage

Late with the links tonight, but I’ll give you some before giving you Videos of the Week. Phil Mushnick in the New York Post goes after a hair replacement ad on the YES Network. In his Sunday column, Bob Raissman in the New York Daily News feels USA Today baseball writer Bob Nightengale may have […]

Some Sunday Links

Hello on a scorching Sunday. Hot here in the Northeast, but it’s hot everywhere in the US as well, so I hope you’re running the air conditioner or at least heading to the beach today. Let’s give you some links so you don’t have to do a lot of physical activity (but don’t get stuck […]

Thursday Links

Been out and about today, but I’ll give you a few links here. The return of ESPN to NASCAR is this weekend. If you haven’t watched ESPN lately, you’re lucky not to have seen the many promos which have flooded all of the Alleged Worldwide Leader’s programs. Anyway, John Sturbin of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram […]

The Wednesday Night Update

Good evening. Barry Bonds isn’t playing tonight so there’s no need to watch the Braves-Giants game on TBS. So instead, I’m watching Ninja Warrior on G4. Very entertaining indeed. The Sports Media Watch blog has a good entry today on the NBA referee gambling scandal. While some media pundits feel this spells the end of […]

The Tuesday Links

Good morning. Time for some links. First, a couple of links from the 38 Cliches blog. First, Dave O’Brien and Glenn Geffner worked the Toronto – Red Sox series over the weekend. For some reason, the Red Sox allowed Joe Castiglione to take the first series after the All Star Game off. So, LC chronicled […]
