Mr. Sunshine and the Upcoming NBA All-Star Game

February 9, 2011 1 comment

Big relief this week.  My first attempt at an article did not get me fired from this voluntary position, and that means that I get to talk about a couple topics that are of much more interest to me than the Super Bowl.

To start off, I want to say how much I’m looking forward to Mr. Sunshine debuting on Wednesday night at 9:30PM ET on ABC.  (Attention ABC and all other media sources: I am always open to shameless, disgusting sponsorship inserts for very little monetary compensation.  Think about it…the 100 glazed eyeballs viewing this are probably more than FlashForward ever had.)

The premise of the show is that Matthew Perry plays a middle-aged manager of a mediocre sports arena in San Diego.  I know for many of you this idea probably sounds boring or unmemorable, but I’m telling you it could be the breakout series of the year if this idea is handled properly.

Predicting the winner of the Super Bowl can be a precarious game. What information should be used to base the judgment; individual statistics of players, team statistics, history between teams, coaching strategies, color of jerseys, or good ol’ gut feeling?

Super Bowl XLV Thoughts

January 29, 2011 1 comment

Super Bowl XLV is only eight days away and I couldn’t be more excited. I really enjoy the Super Bowl because of the four main professional sports in North America (baseball, hockey, football, and basketball) it’s the only final that is set on one exact date. All the other three have their final series that will eventually name one team the winner, but with the Super Bowl, its a day you can mark on your calendar weeks, even months before. Although he is resentful, one friend always volunteers to have all his buddies over and have a few grown up pops and eat some artery clogging food. Its a time to totally let yourself get caught up in all the hype going into it and then eventually just sit down and watch a good game. Even the people who haven’t watched a single game all year become fans when they flick the game on. Read more…
