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.
And Now, A Note From Brian Powell
