I wasn't sure I was going to do my Friday Yahooligans this week, what with March Madness and all, but as it turns out I've decided to watch from home instead of my usual position surrounded by hundreds of TV's at a local bar. I even took the day off, but as I mentioned a couple days ago the prospect of going out on St. Patty's Day didn't agree with me. I confirmed that in an utterly idiotic attempt to meet some friends on the Upper East Side, which any New Yorker can tell you is the last place on the planet you want to be today. $6 for a glass of green Coors Light, having my eardrums ruptured by Bon Jovi, and being pushed into the wall by some heavily made-up girls falling off tables is not how I like to enjoy college basketball.
The good news is I'm home, I've got my brand new MacBook Pro warming my lap, Albany is beating Connecticut by 7 (but for how long...), and I've got a great lead-off to this week's Yahooligans...
Tricia is the impossibly hot Number Six on Battlestar Galactica. If you love television, you should be watching that show because it's the best thing on (if you read this blog enough, you're probably getting tired of me telling you that). As George Costanza can tell you, there's something cool and unique about being named after a number. For example:
- #9 is the best love potion
- I wouldn't mind being assimilated by Seven of Nine
- Who is the real Number Two?
- Three is a Magic Number
- The Great One - Number Four
So much for that Albany lead...they're heading home. But way to go N.C. State! What's next...
Remember the chick from the Whitesnake video? Looks like she's going to be on the Surreal Life, along with Sherman Helmsley and the guitarist for Poison . My question: why can't these people just retire with dignity? Why must George Jefferson lower himself to the level of Alexis Arquette. I thought he was movin' on up? And what are we doing watching this? For shame, America...for shame...
Did you see the Northwestern State buzzer-beater against Iowa? INSANE!
She's in the news because the wrongful death suit she filed after John Ritter went to the Regal Beagle in the sky a few years ago is being settled. The lawsuit alleged that Ritter's illness was misdiagnosed (ya think?) and they're settling for $25 MM (or something like that...lots of "no comments" in the articles I was reading). Mark my words, but someday society will look back at Three's Company and realize that John Ritter was a comic genius. As for Amy, if the best thing on your resume is Wings, it might be time to revisit your career aspirations...
You know, I looked ahead at the next two items; one looks boring, and the other looks tragic. Meanwhile Bradley is beating Kansas. Sorry, guys...I've got to go. Go Zags!
