I WANT MORE, I WANT MORE(TV)

I’m going to make a confession, I like to watch TV. A lot. I mean given the option to go to a bar or stay home, I’m binging on 12 hours of Season X of X show 10 times out 10. Who needs to throw down $20 on alcohol when there’s 5 seasons of Fringe to catch up on!!

Don’t get me wrong, I’ll take a good skank any chance I can, cause a good skank is hard to find. But so is a comedy with good ratings on NBC. And really, how can I pass up 30 hours of Don Draper?

It’s May, which means many shows are coming to an end. That’s gonna leave me with a lot of free time to go out and explore the world, well, you know if I was that kind of person that is.

I had something in mind for this entry when I started it on Thursday, but I’ve since forgetting it, so instead I will give some quick hits on Shows that I like.

Happy Endings- Season 3 wasnt as good as Season 2, but they were always fighting an uphill battle(S2 was sooooo good). Nonetheless it was still a solid 11 hours of action, with many laughs to be had. Too bad those fuckers had to cancel this show.

Shameless- This next show I just started watching last month, and I struggled through most of season 1. But luckily I didnt bail on it and stuck with it for season 2(Not like I had a choice, already made the purchase) because it was a fantastic, yet extremely depressing season. Not sure if I’ve seen a show where the main goal was seemingly to make the audience depressed. Still have season 3 to watch, hopefully the interwebz is kind in regards to ease of access.

Summer Shows- Besides Shameless S3, my goal is to watch one show I neglected to watch these last years, Fringe. Thought about The Office, but my go to binge genre is Drama.

What To Watch For

  • Gifs and Stuff, they are fun.
  • Emmy Rossum’s boobs, with a hint of Smart Hella NSFW
  • I just gave you that and you want more? Bastards.

I, for one, welcome our new Moyes Overload

Moyes

So it has come to this, I’m producing cheap, not even close to being called photoshop work. And for the first time since I’ve been following the sport, there will be someone else calling the shots at Manchester United(that’s if you don’t include the time Doctor Who was the manager).

Sir Alex Ferguson announced his retirement, and the news was so big that United even sent me an email stating that he did. The old man did leave us with a nice going away present, a 20th league title. Unfortunately he also left us with David Moyes. Well maybe he’ll find us a midfielder.

Still mad they didn’t give me a call, my European Experience at QPR and Inter is outstanding, surely I could replicate that at United.

Anyways here’s my predictions for the upcoming summer.

In

  • Gareth Bale?- No just kidding, not spending that kind of cash, but they are in need of a Winger, and not Jeff.
  • CR7?- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA, no.
  • Someone from Dortmund?- Possibly, maybe Lewandowski, maybe not. Rues? Nope. Shit no one then.
  • Baines?- Fuck me it’s gonna be him right?

Out

  • Rooney- Fat Boy wants to go, let him.
  • Anderson- Second Fat boy wants to go, definitely let him.
  • Nani/Ashley Young/Valencia- two of those three are gone. If you can get Bale, make it all 3.

What really happens

I think Rooney goes, and so do Ando, Nani and Ashley Young. There’s probably around 40-45 Million Pounds(money not Rooney and Ando’s combine weight, though it’s close) to spend on targets. With Wilfred Zaha already in, then I would hope they would make a play for Bale if Spurs don’t make the Champions League. Otherwise it will Baines or Fellaini and the window will shut with nothing else.

Chelsea will sign Mourihno and Falcao and will never lose a match again. Liverpool will finish 6th, cause Stewart Downing, Arry will spend more QPR money before leaving for a Premier League Side. No one will give Rafa a job. I will make more bad attempts at photoshopping items. Goonies will win their 4th place trophy. NBC and FOX will take away my SSN and more importantly my Olivia Godfrey…Jews.Boobs. Not in that order.

What to Watch For

  • Great GATsby will be a stinker(movie wise, not financially, people are stupid)
  • Dear god, I might do another one of these before the day is over.
  • Seriously I might do another one.
  • The Evil Castrohead Rises.
  • Probably Not Happy Endings, fucking ABC, more on that later, maybe

The Say May Kids

The month of May has come in gone in Show Land, and the Chicago Cubs followed up April with a 15-12 month, to start June with a 31-24 record, 2 games in back of the first place St Louis Cardinals.(It’s the damn Jorts)

Rookie OF Jorge Soler continued his hot start of the season by increasing his team leading HR Total to 16 including 2, one being a walk-off winner in the May Finale against the Diamondbacks.(TWTW of 9!!!)

Soler (.333/.355/.656(OPS of 1.101, I think that’s good) also increased his team leading RBI total to 37.

The month of May was also Anthony Rizzo(.351/.387/.597) made his return for injury and immediately rattled off a 16(and counting) game hit streak. While Starlin Castro continues his overall great play as he leads the National League in hits(.345/.379/.489).

Taking over for Javier Baez at 3rd this month was Ian Stewart who went on a Unreal(see it’s a video game) tear hitting over .400 in 3 weeks before he went down with a long term injury. Christian Villanueva was called up and continued Stewart’s hot streak, hitting .500 his first week.

On the Pitcher’s mound, the story is a bit different as the unit has struggled as a whole. With Rookie Dillon Maples being the only bright spot, improving his record to 7-2 on the season. Maples also had the highlight of the month by going 7.2 innings of No-Hit Ball.

Not all is well, as Rookie SP Pierce Johnson joined Javier Baez as this months rookie to be sent down to Iowa. With an ERA hovering around 6, it was time to bring up super top Prospect Arodys Vizcaino to the Majors

And there is a Trade to announce, just approved by Major League Baseball, the Cubs have sent 2B Darwin Barney to Washington for 3B prospect Anthony Rendon.  Rendon will battle with Villanueva for playing at 3B.

What to Watch For

  • Trade Winds are blowing 
  • Which Rookie is next to Falter
  • Oh crap, I still have to do two more of these today?!?!?!!?
