Just Say, "Yes," To Life!

  • The Monologue:
    • The NFL is now the only major league whose games can still end in a tie. They say a tie is like kissing your sister, but now there's a football player that may be able to say for sure.
    • Unplugged is coming back, this time on VH1. The first person to appear is going to be Adam Lambert. So many jokes to make. But, seriously, how is the first act to appear on anything?
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • Really questionable move by JT on tonight's Survivor. Really questionable. Why would he go away from what would be the strongest alliance of either of the tribes right now?
    • It's been a weak season of 30 Rock (not helped by how good Community is), but tonight's episode was really good. Maybe the Olympics break and the fact that they now have the Comcast purchase of NBC to mock helped.
    • Surprised that Alex Lambert and Lilly Scott did not make the Top 12 on American Idol. Lambert had gotten a lot better and the judges seemed to be pushing Scott so hard early on that I thought she was a ringer. Big Mike has to be the favorite right now, but I still like Crystal the best.
    • No conference finals today, but we did have some craziness in the Big East tournament as three of the top seeds fell. Can Syracuse lose their #1 seed if West Virginia wins the Big East or Kansas State wins the Big 12?
    • Speaking of those two teams... The final six seconds of Cincinnati-WVU were incredible. Tie game, Cincy has the ball at the far end of the court. They throw it into a guard who dribbles the ball off of his head (I'm not sure how he managed that) and out of bounds. As he sat on the sidelines with his head in his hands, West Virginia took the ball with 3.1 seconds and hit a fall-away three at the buzzer to win it. I also got the chance to watch Kansas State tonight for the first time all year. They are really, really good. They play great defense and their offensive spacing is exceptional.
  • Random Music Video:
    • I didn't know this existed until today. How could I not know that???
