Some More New Year's Eve Links

Let’s give you some more links today before I work on some other things. First, Neil Best of Newsday writes that Patriots-Giants on Saturday was the most watched program of 2007.

Our Saturday Linkage

A bit of snow covering the ground this morning. Not much as we got enough snow to wreak havoc on the afternoon commute on Friday, but as I look out my window, the snow actually leaves a pretty picture. Perhaps I’ll take one and post it here later. But first, time to give you some […]

Wednesday Night Update

You’re probably sick of me talking about The War, but I have to say this installment was very good. Episode 4 dealt with D-Day in Europe and the Battle of Saipan in the Pacific. Unbelievable footage that Ken Burns obtained for this part. Plus, the stories of the contributions of the Japanese and African American […]

MLB and ESPN Fighting Again

Remember back in July when ESPN was punished by MLB for breaking the embargo on the All Star game announcements? The announcements were supposed to be made by TBS on its own exclusive program and ESPN was to wait until everything was done, but instead, the Alleged Worldwide Leader made them as the TBS program […]
