Last night, I took part in one of the more rewarding tasks of the daily week: I emptied my DVR. All the shows that piled up over the past week and teased me every time I flipped through knowing all well I didn't have time for any finally got watched.
Community continues to be one of the more underrated shows on television and I've already given up on the Jimmy Johnson edition of Survivor. Once his hair moved out of place for the first time, the novelty sort of wore off.
I have long been a huge fan of 30 Rock and Cash Cab. So, to see Tracy Jordan ride the Cash Cab to the hospital ranks as my favorite gag of the new Fall season.
Fortunately, or unfortunately if you're NOT interested in hearing about my TV watching habits, the fodder is about to pick up around UC. I'm heading over to the press luncheon this afternoon to chat with some players and Coach Butch Jones.
As always, if you have any questions you would like either coach or a player to answer, feel free to send them my way. (firstname.lastname@example.org) If I don't get your email until after the luncheon, no worries, I will also be at practice later this afternoon and can find out the answer to your query then.
Meanwhile, how about some Breakfast...
--- Scott Springer proves he knows more about this current Miami team than we do. He's seen his fair share of Battle's for the Victory Bell, enough to know if UC takes the RedHawks lightly there could be more drama than anybody is hoping for Saturday.
Also, he references one of the great SNL sketches of all time.
--- If there is anybody that knows not to take the MAC lightly, it's Butch Jones. Bill Koch writes about how Jones' time with the Chips will help out this week.
--- Tommy G with a great story checking in with young Mitch Stone. I can't wait to see his mohawk around Nippert.
--- Miami is a little banged up for the UC game. Pete Conrad says five players who have started at least one game are at least listed as questionable, if not out, this weekend.
--- I'd like to take a moment of silence for the death of all hope and optimism for Rutgers football.
--- Some news and notes from around the Big East.
--- Seriously, anybody interested in slowing down Stephanie Niemer feel free to step up. I am assuming they are just going to rename the Big East Player of the Week Award, The Niemer, at this point.
Make it four weeks in a row she has won it as she continues to terrorize the Big East and UC has won eight consecutive matches because of it -- the last six in straight sets. They are now No. 21 in the country.
--- In some randomness, it turns out Diana Taurasi is hot. Really hot.
--- When fleeing the scene of a crime, you may want to pick a vehicle that goes faster than 10 mph.
--- The evolution and potential growth of Cigar Man makes me happier than Jessie Spano's pharmacist.
--- I probably need to expand my audience to the UC student, so, here's a look at 20 awesome dorm pranks.
I went with the full toilet papering of the my neighbors room when I was living the dorm life. Obviously, the bigger, faster, stronger skill set of the new generation has taken the game to a new level.
