April Madness

March Madness ends in April. But. Here we go.

Upset- Oregon beats Wisconsin
Final Four – Michigan State, Texas Tech, Tennessee, North Carolina
Final Two – North Carolina v. Michigan State
Winner – Michigan State

Febulous

Good riddance to January. The worst of all months. Schitt’s Creek is back for a much needed belly laugh. Plus. Finally there’s plenty to talk about besides Trump…   Kamala. Lizzie. Kirsten. Sherrod. Buttigieg. And now Cory. Spartacus the cliché king. Can’t wait for that first debate.

And the Super Bowl. Have to say though. Strange that so many liberal people I know love Trump’s team. Go Pats?

Chilly Tilt

A tilt in the winter air. Lunar eclipse could be seen by West Siders on a clear night. Yet. Nothing seems right.

Super Bowl teams decided by a bad call and a coin toss. HBO’s excellent Brexit with Benedict Cumberbatch sheds chilling light on what happened both there and here in 2016. The Mercer’s and Cambridge Analytica are responsible for it all. Steve Bannon, too. A must see.

True Detective music.    Season three.

Field of Play

NFL Conference Playoffs set. Youth be served. Mahomes at 22 and McVay at 32. Yet. The experience of Belichick and Brady and their arsenal cannot be denied. The Pats look as sharp as they’ve ever been.

Ray Donovan’s season finale took on a grisly Fargo-esque end. Chainsaws and shovels were involved. Bridget earned her place in the family. Vengeances dealt. Rule of play. Never mess with Ray’s kids.

William Barr takes questions in his confirmation hearing to become AG in a most crucial time. He seems a perfect QB for the DOJ of today.

And They’re Off

Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Tulsi Gabbard. Julián Castro today from San Antonio. Probably Bernie and Joe. Cory and Amy. The 2020 campaign has begun. Something to talk about. Besides. Him.

Playoff Cowboys v. Rams will decide if my All Los Angeles Super Bowl prediction holds. Of course, it seems highly unlikely that Chargers can hold off the Pats at home anyway. So.

Less Luster

NFL Wild Card games lackluster. None of the teams seemed well coached or strong enough to make it to the Super Bowl. Silly rules changes and officiating. More wounded warriors.

The Golden Globes were duller than ever. Sandra and Andy no chemistry and the snow flakes wouldn’t let them tell any funny jokes. Women’s skin all out there. Don’t look, though! They’ll sue you. Hypocrisy of Hollywood knows no bounds. However. It was a good night for Levine’s.

Gary Levine, head of Showtime programming and Chuck Lorre (aka Levine). Why did Chuck change his name from Levine to Lorre?

The reason I changed my name was simple. My mother, never a fan of my father’s family, had an unfortunate habit of using Levine as a stinging insult. When displeased with me, she would often say/shriek, “You know what you are? You’re a Levine! A no good, rotten Levine!”

But. Then he realized that in England he’d become Chuck Truck.
