Matt Cain Perfect



Some are calling this game the "greatest game ever pitched."

If you were like most of the world last night, you weren't watching as Matt Cain threw his perfect game.I have alerts set up on my phone for such occasions, but I didn't care to turn it on because last time a perfect game was about to happen, I jinxed it.

Cain wasn't the only Giant working last night. Melky Cabrera and Gregor Blanco made two great catches to keep Cain's game untarnished.
"Those were unbelievable catches," Cain said. "I mean that right there, that changes the whole thing." Blanco said of his catch: "I didn't think I was going to make it, but I did,"
Cain threw 125 pitches with 14 strikeouts to earn just the 22nd perfect game in the Majors. This year has been the year of the pitcher, as there has already been five no hitters.

What to Watch Tonight: Who Shot JR?


Like I said earlier this week, I am just getting back into the swing of things, so bear with me if I am late on posts. I will put up the That's My Boy review tomorrow, but until then here is "What to Watch Tonight."

Top 100 Video Games of All Time (G4)- Another day of the top games. Personally, I haven't watched this. I am just waiting for the full list to be posted online. When that happens, I will pass it on.

Property Brothers (HGTV)- If you have a serious relationship you should know all about the "Property Brothers" and HGTV in general. If you aren't in a serious relationship, you can watch this to pretend you are.

Adam Richman's Best Sandwich in America (Travel)- Mmmm...sandwiches!

The Soup (E!)- For the sandwiches. This is a scheduled series on my DVR.

Dallas (TNT)- Um, I guess. If you are in to that sort of thing. I don't get it, but then again I was too young to appreciate/remember "Who shot JR?"

Netflix: Sherlock- If you aren't too busy watching Workaholics or searching for the second season, I hear Sherlock is a good show.

What to Watch Tonight- Tight Butthole


This is my first real post back, so I have to knock some rust off. Bear with me. (Get it! Oh, god. What am I doing?) Anyways, I will be back tomorrow with my review of the Adam Sandler/Andy Samberg pic, That's My Boy.

NBA Finals: Game 1- Heat vs Thunder (ABC)- Gotta go with the Thunder. I can't stand the Heat or LeBron.

American Ninja Warrior (NBC)- Always fun to watch, although it would go better with more balls flying at competitors faces in the same vein as Wipeout.

Barter Kings (A&E)- This shows is aimed at all of you Storage Wars fans out there. It reminds me of the story of the guy who traded a paperclip for a house. (I am too lazy to link it, just Google it.)

Top 100 Video Games of All Time (G4)- Let the debates begin.

Netflix Pick: Workaholics- I didn't realize how "tight butthole" this show was until recently. Grab some popcorn and get yourselves acquainted with the boys of Workaholics.

Start again



I am going to give this blog another go. Please be patient with me for the time being as I get back into the swing of things. Wish me luck!

What to Watch Tonight- 100th Post!


This is my 100th post since starting this blog in late July. Thank you for the support and please tell your friends about the blog.

Lots to watch tonight. This week marks the end of the summer season and the beginning of the fall season, so there will be a lot of finales and premiers this week. This is a good week to own a television.

Bachelor Pad (ABC)- Season finale. Young people compete to earn $250,000 that they do not deserve. This people already had their shot on 'The Bachelor/Bachelorette' why give them a second chance to win something?

Miss Universe Pageant (NBC)- A lot of lonely men and little girls will be watching this show tonight. I do not get why these types of pageants are still being performed. I am sure I will be reading a lot of bad pun and semi-sexist jokes tomorrow as I look for the results tomorrow.

Kate Plus 8 (TLC)- Series finale. Ding dong the witch is dead! Kate cares little about her children and I am glad she can no longer whore them out, although I am sure she will find another way. Another thought, why is this channel stilled called TLC? TLC stands for The Learning Channel. The only thing I am learning is how not to raise my kids.

Rizzoli and Isles (TNT)- Summer finale. I just can't wait 'til the fall potion of this show begins, so I can continue to not watch it.

Monday Night Football (ESPN)- Season premiere. Patriots at Dolphins and Raiders at Broncos. A lot is riding on these games for me. My fantasy team had a poor performance this week due to Kerry Collins. I hope to gain some respect points tonight.

Let me know what you are watching in the comments. I would love to know people are reading.

Winners of the Weekend Box Office Race: 9/12


Turns out the American public won't just watch any crap. 'Bucky Larson' bombed hard. Coming in at number 15, 'Bucky Larson' averaged just $967 a theater. That was leaps and bounds better than new horror release, 'Creature.' 'Creature' made $331,000 at 1,500 theaters making an average of $220 a theater. I have to imagine that it cost more to show this movie than the money the theaters brought in from tickets. Box Office Mojo had some choice words for these two films. 
To put it another way, it was the worst ever for a movie playing at 1,500 locations or more. Its per-showing attendance was less than six people, though Bucky Larson wasn't much better at a little over eight.
On to the results.
