I Almost Forgot to Do the Blog
RESII

Shit, I almost forgot to do the blog. These people keep coming up to me to help them on their bad work during my breaks and I completely forgot. Fuck, I am screwed. I need to type for a while about something –anything. Hey, did you know that Touched by an Uncle won last night? They’re a strong team. What else, what else . . . the lighting is good at Three Lions? Have I ever talked about that? The lighting is neat. It’s all old English and stuff. Good for a first date. OK, there’s another paragraph done. Just need something witty so my reader will be entertained. Ummm . . . a guy just made a basketball shot off a rooftop. Set

Tres Lobos Has Pants, Victory
RESII

A perfect (and doubled, to boot) round three launched Tres Lobos with the Pants into victory lane Wednesday. Tres Lobo never looked back from there, although Beware Franken-Mountain came close to unseating the eventual champions. The battle was on for third, as teams traded the spot back and forth like pogs. Wild Bill's Fan Club narrowly defeated Quiz on my Face for the third and final podium spot. Our last federalist President, John Adams was a principled dude. Before becoming the first Vice President and Second President, Adams defended the British troops who shot and killed five unruly pro-American, anti-British

TVCeption: Why ‘Tool Time’ Would Be a Terrible Show
RESII

Wednesday’s round visual highlighted TV shows that had TV shows in them. One notable absence was Tool Time, the show within Home Improvement. A huge hit from the 90s that seems to be forgotten, Home Improvement used to be syndicated all the damn time alongside Jeopardy! on broadcast networks. Now, Tim Allen’s magnum opus appears missing in the cultural zeitgest in the midst of the Full House reunion. Home Improvement centers on Allen’s Tim Taylor, a handyman cum TV personality. Taylor’s show, Tool Time, fits into the larger program by largely making it a platform for what Tim has learned

A Fictionalised Narrative of the Winning Team’s Exploits

It was her birthday: the anniversary of liberation from the womb, a day of jubilation, for sure. But still, something felt missing from Missy’s* life. *Note: Names have been changed to prevent the innocent/I don’t know them. What would give Missy the solace she always sought? Her friends suggested they go out to a bar. But which bar? Someplace where they served Staten Island Ice Teas? No, she had one yesterday. A place where the servers are all former KGB agents? No, those don’t exist. Then, like a bolt of thunder, it came to her: Three Lions for quizzing. Her mind raced all night like a speed dog hopped up on opiates. An answer came

The Limp Bizkit Sunoco Tour
RESII

For one night, Dayton was the capital of the [fake] music world. Pranks and rumours are often ill-advised. Most involve some celebrity scandal (like Rod Stewart’s stomach) or celebrity death (Paul is dead). However, yesterday saw what happens when an internet prank goes right: Limp Bizkit was alleged to play at a Sunoco gas station. Go ahead, google Limp Bizkit 420 Sunoco. I’ll wait. It’s a hilarious, obtuse prank. And one that is fairly harmless: people coming out to see the “it” band of 1999 (oof – I miss Prince) it band play at a gas station in the sixth largest city in Ohio. And even though the rumour was quickly dispelled, people

Right Bauer, Wrong Bauer
RESII

“Who do you work for?”/Jack Bauer grabs gun, points it at an assailant’s temple“WHO DO YOU WORK FOR?”/cocks gun“WE’RE OUT OF TIME”/Jack gets close, whispers in ear“You live if YOU TELL ME WHO YOU WORK FOR.” That was just a bit of pretty much lots of episodes of 24. 24 was a tremendous show—but an unsustainable one. Just how many times could a single man save David Palmer/L.A./the world? 24 was also doomed in a sense from escalation: in season two, the writers brought in nukes. (In fact, nuclear devices would become the MacGuffin in almost all the even seasons).

Descending into Madness
RESII

One Pump Trump came in the corner last night and found themselves in a sticky situation: with so many quality teams, there was reason to get excited. But Trump stayed hard the whole time even when things got hot. “Yay!” Trump ejaculated as they claimed the top prize. In summation, Trump came, conquered, and came again. #dirtytrumpsexjoke So it is two holidays in one as of the time of writing. It is St. Patrick’s Day, the day in honour of the patron saint of liver disorders (I’m guessing). But it is also the first day of the NCAA men’s D1 tournament. March Madness? More like March gladness. It is a glut of college

It Was a Good, Yet Fictitious Day
RESII

Yesterday was a good day. I didn’t "even have to use my AK" (In fact, I’ve only used an AK once in my life and that was to shoot helpless cans on the side of the hill in Arizona). I’m paraphrasing/quoting Ice Cube’s “It Was a Good Day,” perhaps the greatest hip hop song ever (along with “Regulate” by Warren G and Nate Dogg and “Hate it or Love It” by 50 and The Game). “It Was a Good Day” popped up on round two (it is by Ice Cube and not N.W.A. by the way). Enterprising sleuths wanted to unearth the exact date of Cube’s good day but why? The song is not set in reality. Notably, Ice Cube mentions that

'First Contact' is the Best 'Star Trek' Film

Teams packed Three Lions to feast on food and knowledge. When the metaphorical dust settled, Bear Down for that Oscar, Leo won with an impressive 85-points. The next few teams were as close as Joe Dimaggio and Marylin Monroe— We Were Sniffin Dicks Last Weekend won second, and Manifest's Destinys Child edged out Solo Lobo and Buckaroos for third.

I Would Play the 'Forrest Gump' NES Game
RESII

So this week’s visual round pixelated famous movie scenes, as if they were an eight-bit video game. Which poses the question: which film would make for the weirdest game? Crazily, all of these eight films have video games adaptations in some format or another. Aliens, Back to the Future Part II, Return of the Jedi, and Predator—it would stand to reason that each of those blockbusters should have an existing video game tie-in (Avengers: Age of Ultron appears to not have a canon video game adaptation but c’mon, there are plenty of Avengers games). Even though Goldfinger was released in 1964, it had an official text based game

Mangled Metaphors
RESII

After coming in third two weeks in a row, Avery Loves Cats broke through to the championship Wednesday. You might say they pulled a Doors and broke on through to the other side. (The “other side” means first place). The Doors were a popular band of the 1960s whose hits included a song “Break on Through (to the Other Side).” You see, this works as a joke because it’s a famous song of theirs. Other famous Doors’ songs include “Light My Fire,” “L.A. Woman,” and “The End.” Speaking of “The End,” it was “the end” for other teams after round eight. This

Cleveland is the Most Tortured Sports City and It Is Not Even Close
RESII

Cleveland, the city known for having one of its river’s catching on fire (because of pollutants), has the worst luck in professional sports, as was stated in round four.  Let’s review. Indians (no World Series Championships since 1948). The Indians of the 90s are much like the Broncos of a couple years back: fans appreciate their offense but they couldn’t win it all. (Can Denver will with the defense leading the way? There’s a game on Sunday). Anyway, the Tribe was just an inning away from winning the World Series in 1997 and a game away from winning the American League in 2007. That 2007 missed opportunity still haunts. Browns

MVP of the Acting BPs: Bill Paxton in a Landslide
RESII

Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman have been linked for years. Hell, the rivalry has even been mentioned on Saturday Night Live. Inspired by Wednesday night’s round three, I can stay silent no longer: Paxton unequivocally wins this battle of the Bills. Because Paxton has been in so many good films, he wipes the floor with Pullman, even though Pullman is no slouch himself. Pullman’s best movies include Spaceballs, A League of Their Own, and Independence Day. That is an impressive list. However, Pullman really only shines as an actor in those aforementioned films in his speech to the troops in Independence Day; in most of his work, Pullman simply
