If the Emmys had a "Best Montage" category, the "Our House" ending of "This Is Us" would win or I'd be pissed.
ESPN canceled the very astute "Bo and 'blo Show" (AKA "High Noon"), yet they pay Stephen E. 10 million a year. A statement on the intelligence of sports fans. Blowhard beats high brow.

Oh, man, when Charles Barkley is bad on TV, he's the worst. His "Five Minutes With..." segment on @PTI was five missed free throws in a row. Was once great, but at this point Chuck owes his career to Frank Calliendo.

"This Is Us" is sliding into "guilty pleasure." This season seems to be about getting Mandy Moore an Emmy. Which is deserved, but at this point it should be more Black Pearsons. Most interesting family, in a way that Alec is the best Baldwin.
Don't talk, and play covers. #fivewordsthatmakeabandbetter
Love this appearance by the Judds doing "Ironic" on "This Is Us."

I'm sorry, but conducting an orchestra is the easiest job ever. I could do it tomorrow. #oscars
The Elton John segment of the Oscars was pretty lame.
It's Randy Newman. Stand up. #oscars
The best way to watch the Oscars from now until the majors is with Rockpile blasting on headphones.
Janelle Monae is a major talent, but this opening Oscar musical production number means she can never be cool again.
This Oscars red carpet show is really good, with that full gown man Billy Porter and Elvis Mitchell and Tamron Hall and Lily Somebody. Grammys should take note. Smart people work really well as celebrity questioners.
Texas picks up another five-star recruit on National Signing Day: DE Alfred Collins from Cedar Creek in Bastrop. Picked UT over OU and Bama.

FYI Shakira is 43 years old!

O.J. Simpson is one of the 11 greatest college football players of all time. They cheered for Trump, why not invite the Juice? Also, you can choose Red Grange or Jim Thorpe- not both.

Lamar Jackson is the LeBron James of football- the best in the game. But Derrick Henry ain't bad either. Tennessee's beatdown of Baltimore was shocking. Does Nashville win its first Super Bowl? Who's better?
Kenny Vaccaro (ex-UT) with a LamJac-killing INT. Didn't realize the Titans were this good. 28-6 going into the 4th.
Lamar Jackson is just too good. Don't care that they're down 14-6 in 3rd quarter. Can't see Ravens losing this game to the Titans.

Texas beat Utah in a way that Texas should always beat Utah.
On the first day of 2019 the Texas Longhorns beat a favored Georgia in the Sugar Bowl. On the last day of the year they beat Utah as underdogs. Don't ever say 2019 was a bad year for Texas football.
First there was the bullshit call against #99 Coburn when Texas stopped Utah on 4th down. Then the receiver bobbled ball on TD. Seven points Utah stole. Still, Texas 24- Utah 10. Need a couple first downs to put it away.
I haven't thought about doing acid in 30 years, but John Mullaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch are screaming for it.

Hate Jerry Jones, but the one redeeming thing's he's done in his life is stick with Jason Garrett as head coach of the Cowboys. Why fire good people just because everybody wants you to?
Cowboys up 37-16 in 4th. Wish Fox would switch to Eagles/Giants. That's the game that matters.
Clemson wins the chance to get their ass kicked by LSU.
