Grizzly Spice

  • The Monologue:
    • DeSean Jackson said a dumb thing. Reading his statement totally made me feel like I got hit in the head and knocked out.
    • Bristol Palin is going to the finals of Dancing With The Stars. To be fair, we knew this would happen when her mother backed all of her opponents.
    • Why do people in the US still care at all about the British royals? Do they still have the power to cut off anyone's heads? No? Eh.
  • Random Pop Culture:
    • The major plot twist in tonight's Sons of Anarchy was an egregious cop-out. They start out the episode with this amazing scene and it means nothing two minutes later. Lots of good stuff on the show still, but it's been a pretty weak season. What would have easily been the best show once Mad Men is gone has dropped to at least #4 and isn't even close to the best show on its own network.
    • Lots of college basketball today. A great game in Baylor-UConn, a dominant performance in #5 Ohio State pounding #10 Florida in Gainesville, what -- at the time of writing -- is on its way to a great game in San Diego State-Gonzaga (I loved SDSU as an 11-seed last year that lost its 1st round game by 3; they return all five starters). I don't just like Michigan State to win it all, I love them. Experienced, talented, a team that usually peaks in March to begin with.
  • Random Video:
    • Spice hit #1 on the UK charts on this date in 1996. I still can't often shake the urge to zigazig ha.
