FINAL HOURS: TAKE US HOME

I am asking you, readers of this little blog of ours, take us down the stretch run of Mike'd Up today as i am going to begin showing my true affection for Chris Russo by watching the finals of the US Open. American men's tennis died with Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi, but still i have a place in my heart for the tournament in Flushing Meadow.

Before i go, some suggestion of things to discuss inside and outside of sports if you are so inclined :

1. The new 90210, most importantly Shannen Doherty and whether she is still hot, never was hot, and was Brenda Walsh ever really a good enough actress to return to as a drama teacher. (i know this falls under "guy talk" so let's stay above the fray and keep it clean and smart and high brow, by using big words and Shakespeare references or Ibsen or Beckett)
2. The fall of HBO: Are there must watch shows on HBO anymore (outside of Flight of the Concordes? Was not impressed by True Blood, Entourage lacked zip, what's left?)
3. Joe Girardi: I have yet to understand why he deserves a pass for this year. Please explain. If the Yankees finish in fourth place how does Girardi at least not take the hit by being on a very short rope next year. Would Joe Torre have won with the same roster and same cirumstances?
4. Real World Road Rules Challenge: The Island: One thing you must know about Lt Sam Weinberg, he loves himself some reality tv, especially the Real World. Kevin Powell, member of the first Real World Cast is running for some political office in New York. Eric Neiss unfortunately is not his running mate. BUT, the Real World Road Rules Challenge: The Island debuts next week and it's very important that you watch this. More important than the presidential debates or eating. I also will go on record and state that the Real World Road Rules Challenge should be included in the next Olympics.

The forum is yours. Bash Mike, love Mike, say he's boring, says he riveting, talk about your new Sirius subscription or the password and login you are stealing for us. Say whatever you wish, keep it clean, or at least disguised as clean, and enjoy.

Showtime is the new HBO

i agree with you Gman. Dexter, Weeds, Brotherhood. I have not watched much of Californication. FX is even struggling with new shows. Sons of Anarchy not so good, although Drea De Mateo makes an early appearance.

TheNextBestThing1 said...

Speaking of Drea De Mateo, HBO lost is thunder when the Sopranos ended, although Curb Your Enthusiasm with Larry David is a very good show. Does anyone know if that show has ended or he is returning with a new season, dont remember him having a series finale show. Nevertheless, Adriana was one of the top 5 hottest Sopranos characters, maybe top 3..

Drea DeMateo is nasty looking.
Meadow was much cuter. Hell Tony's nast sister was better looking than Andrea. I liked Chris' redhead girl who worked in movies.

gman26 said...

Disagree with you about Drea, but you are dead on about Alicia Witt from the D-Girl episode, from Season 2. I wouldn't do Aida Turturro with Casey Stengel's dick and all the Mets pushing from behind.

[SPOILER]Sopranos' hottest -- Annabella Sciorra, Meadow, Julianna Margulies, Alicia Witt, the girl who Tony visited to tell her about Christopher dying and wound up banging, Carmela's tennis instructor, Drea DeMateo.

gman26 said...

Christopher's ex-mistress probably was the hottest. And one of the Swedish flight attendants.

KBilly said...

How does Boomer do a Radio morning show, get to Green Bay for a MNF game and get back to New York for the morning show?
Does Boomer and Marv call the game from New York and play fake background noise to make it seem like they are on site?

KBilly said...

I forgot about the tennis instructor. She was WAY hot. And so was the FBI agent that befriended and then turned on drea mateao. Also, there was some stock girl in a warehouse that Tony banged, a blonde who was way hot. And Dr. Melfi is hotter than Drea Mateao

Hottest woman on the Sopranos? The black-haired Russian.

KBilly said...

black haired russian...I agree. Her one legged sister, not so much.

TheNextBestThing1 said...

Valentina Tony's goomah from season 4, the girl from the stable where he was Pie-O-mie, the girl who Ralph C. was banging first. Tony ended dumping her when got Carmela the episode when she burned her face up. She was gorgeous, but the D-girl, Meadow, irina (the russian), And the Spanish chick AJ was banging at the end of Season six were very sexy..

PS Carmela also had her moments.

TheNextBestThing1 said...

Also i wouldnt touch Janice with a ten foot pole. not to mention the girl who set up Adrianna, the FBI agent was also very attractive..

As far as off topic stuff:

Why does Wayne Hagin seem to root for the other team? He always sides with the other guys on close calls and his home run calls for Mets players are always ho-hum - even big homers.

why does Wayne Hagin have a job?
