The Simpsons could be Fox Sports Go’s ticket to greater distribution

You may have seen a stirring on Twitter yesterday from the biannual Television Critics Association press tour. A stirring that showed, yet again, that the internet’s love of The Simpsons is deep, endearing and unending. Mmmmmmmm… unending deer [slobbers]. Fox’s cable network FXX made the announcement that the network will officially debut its extensive package of Simpsons reruns […]

Jason Whitlock’s comments about Canada are insulting to everyone

Full disclosure: I’m Canadian. Okay, let’s get to it. Jason Whitlock has written a lot of questionable things in his career, but on Monday night, he said something that should offend an entire nation.

Chip Caray makes an unfortunate verbal slip-up

Although that headline could come from 2009, it appears once again thanks to something that happened in the booth Monday night. Evan Gattis returned to the Atlanta Braves’ lineup on Monday night after missing 17 games with a bulging disc in his back. Well, Chip Caray would have you believe differently. Bulging dick, bulging disc…what’s […]

Red Sox reporter is a huge fan of The Office

Television and movie funnyman Steve Carell showed up at a Red Sox game and was interviewed by NESN sideline reporter Gary Striewski.  Sideline reporter-celebrity interviews are usually always awkward and this one is no exception.  My favorite part of this interview though, and what slightly sets it apart, is just how starstruck Striewski seems.  In particular, […]

Could an NBA tournament be a television success?

One of the most challenging things about being an international soccer fan is explaining the different competitions that take place throughout the season.  If I had a nickel for every time I tried to explain to my dad the difference between the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League, and how these competitions all take […]
