How to Live to 100 Greenlit to Series

Categories: News, Opinion

I generally don't publish a whole lot of television news. Never, actually. It's a rat race to cover everything. So I tend to skip it all together. The company I work for doesn't believe food shows are worth covering in their news department. I, on the other hand, feel that someone needs to cover it and get the word out there. Last winter Cooking Channel aired a special called How to Live to 100. It was a cooking show hosted by Detroit-born chef, ... Read More

ESPN First Take 2013/10/11 Thoughts

Categories: Opinion

We're finally caught up, folks.  I'm glad to be doing this the same day as the episode.  Friday show.  Let's get it on! Cassidy Hubbarth filled in for Cari Champion today.  It's nice to see Cassidy on First Take. How Has This Season's Start Impacted Eli Manning's Legacy? What it does is reminds people to take a closer look at some of his seasons past and forces you to realize that Eli is actually a little overrated in the eyes of some.  That being said, ...

ESPN First Take 2013/10/10 Thoughts

Categories: Opinion

Welcome back, folks.  I'll now tackle Thursday's show which covers everything from Kobe Bryant to the struggling New York Giants. Which Jay Cutler Shows Up Against the NY Giants? I suspect Jay Cutler will play well against the Giants.  Eli's in a far bigger slump than Cutler has been.  As long as he's able to get some blocking from his offensive line, he and the Bears will be fine.  The Giants have a tendency to turn the ball over a lot. Who is Responsible for ... Read More

ESPN First Take 2013/10/09 Thoughts

Categories: Opinion

Welcome, everyone.  I know I'm still behind by a day, but I'm working on it.  I hope to get caught up very soon. Has What Jadeveon Clowney Said Changed Your Mind About Him? I am still of the opinion that what has happened with Clowney he will still be just fine in the draft.  Nothing has happened to change that feeling.  We don't know how injured he really is.  It's only college football.  I'm not going to beat up on a kid for saving ...

ESPN First Take 2013/10/08 Thoughts

Categories: Opinion

My piece on Monday's show took a little longer than I expected to write so I'm hoping I can speed this one up and do a little less recapping of the perspectives of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless.  I would prefer to focus on getting my own perspective across more so than theirs. Can Geno Smith Keep It Up? It's unlikely, but I'll give the young man some credit.  He looked positively outstanding against the Atlanta Falcons.  His poise was incredible.  He never ... Read More

Welcome to this new series of coverage of ESPN First Take.  I've been a huge fan of the show for years.  There have been countless times I've wanted to debate Stephen A.

March Madness Was Mad

Categories: Opinion

The NCAA Basketball Tournament has been one of my favorite sports events for several years. Every year something crazy happens. Players and universities that few had heard of make a name for themselves in the months of March and April. Even if you never went to college, it's easy to get wrapped up in the madness that is March Madness. I never went to college, but I always cheer on the Big Ten teams because I live in the midwest. The ... Read More

Cajun Justice – What Was A&E Thinking?

Categories: Opinion

When it comes to reality police shows, A&E has a pretty good thing going for it. Manhunters was fairly good. And The First 48 remains one of the best shows on television. So I was really taken aback when A&E's new Cajun Justice aired last night. The show focuses on the Terrebonne Parish Sheriff's Department and its variety of calls. In the episodes that premiered last night, they dealt with everything from one guy getting his air conditioner stolen ... Read More

Interesting Fringe Season 4 Spoilers

Categories: News, Opinion

After season three's shocking conclusion, everyone's curious what's going to happen in season four from Fringe. While information is obviously quite limited, I do know that Joshua Jackson will be back to play Peter Bishop. What Peter does and where he is still not known. The writers took quite an unusual step in the way the season ended and made Peter vanish from existence, making his character's role a little unsure. As for the room inside the Statue of Liberty, ...
