    Eastbound and Down

    http://www.hbo.com/eastboundanddown/ I'll admit it. I love Danny McBride. The first thing I saw him in was The Heartbreak Kid and he was hilarious playing the overbearing cousin. Then he started popping up in everything. He was funny in Drillbit Taylor and The Pineapple Express and ok in Tropic Thunder. I tracked down the movie that made him "famous", The Foot Fist Way. I had it overhyped in my head but it still ended up having some absolutely hilarious lines. Needless to say - I'll be watching every episode of this series. I'm hoping it's not too over the top and doesn't let me down. I'm guessing it's going to be the stark opposite of the show that airs directly before it but I enjoy both types of comedy.
  2. MMA Playground's new "season" starts w/ UFC 80. I thought maybe we can have a TSM fight camp, which would, in effect, be a TSM Fantasy league for MMA. I already created the camp so if people are interested in doing this I suppose you can just post your name and I can send the invite. I'm not sure how else to do it.
  3. Both positive and negative aspects of all sports coverage and media representation of sports. I happened to catch an inning or two of Sunday Night baseball while eating dinner and I was pleased to hear Harry Kalas in the booth. The man was born to call baseball games.

    Brian: Are you queer? Stewie: Oh, ya know...probably. Family Guy has been really funny the last few weeks.

    In rather convincing fashion. UNC already beat Michigan State by 35 points this year on their own court, so here's hoping that they make it to the finals if we can get past Nova.

    Danny Green has been my favorite Tarheel for about two seasons now. He does everything on the floor and he always hits the big shot. I'm going to miss him more next season than Tyler Hansbrough. He's having a great game here tonight.

    I'm not exactly thrilled that we're stuck in the 70s until at least the end of this season.

    The End - Part Deux

    We briefly discussed this with the last admin group. The decision, which I agree with, is that deleting posts by users shouldn't be allowed. Look at how many TSM classics would be lost after the original poster got mocked and decided to delete it from history? Where would we be without the $10 computer and the food man?

Spoilers ARE allowed in this thread. I just didn't want them in CTDWAT where you don't know what you're getting into. In this thread, it's real simple - no spoiler tags needed but don't read the thread if you don't want to (potentially) be spoiled.

    Great ending. Pitt didn't deserve to make the Final 4 the way they played the entire tournament.
  11. Lashley's next fight is already April 25th against former NFL player Marcus Jones.

    Magazine Subscriptions

    Merged this thread with the old magazine thread. The only thing I have to add is that I recently got a subscription to Forbes... yet to receive my first issue.

    The Office Season 5

    He plays the unlikeable boss very well. The guy is a great actor and a good looking guy - I don't understand how he's not a star already.

    New leader.

    I'm somewhat surprised this actually happened. I stay out of the drama, for the most part, so I don't care either way but from reading the mod folder for the past few months I figured this day wasn't coming. Hopefully those guys don't leave the board...

    If Missouri wins tonight then I actually have a chance of winning all my brackets. I seem to be the only person I know who had them going to the Final 4.

    I think the theory that makes the most sense is that Richard comes to get him, watches him seemingly come back to life, and that's how he ends up as the leader of the Others some day.

    Japanese MMA Thread

    Haven't seen the fight yet but I've read reports that make it sound like Alistair had the fight won until a flash knockdown late in the 3rd. True/false for people who've seen it already?

    That doesn't surprise me very much. I personally see the best in everything.

    Any night Duke loses by 23 is good for me. Fuck Duke. I often wondered why Cowboy liked Duke so much myself, considering his location. I might have only been there one year, but at least I went to North Carolina...

    "Just saying it's sterile doesn't make it so." Surprising the way they are taking this season...

    The Sweet 16 & Elite 8 Thread

    I'm hoping to stay awake for the whole Nova/Duke game. Sucks that I'm getting old enough to understand how people complain about late start times. Oh - this Pitt/Xavier game is turning out to be quite a nail-biter. If Pitt pulls this off, has a #1 seed ever sleepwalked through so many rounds but kept winning?

    Eastbound and Down

    Has to be. McBride must be begging for it. This series is going to take him from "that guy" who has bit parts in major comedies to something of a star. Kenny Powers is a damn quote machine.

    I was waiting for the confirmation head-shot when he was laying on the ground but he just ran away.

    The "twists" are so obvious this season. Looking back I don't really like the direction this season went in. I'd much prefer Locke leading The Others, etc. I mean - fuck. We haven't even seen Locke in weeks. I have to say that it's going to take an amazing run to finish the season for me to not label this season a disappointment. It had such promise to start and now... the last few weeks have been such a letdown.
  25. The fight is five months away and the discussion has already spilled into multiple threads. We have very vocal supports on both sides. It's war. First off: HUGE THANKS TO STEVIEKICK FOR THE BANNERS! I was thinking that we can do something with this. Obviously we know who is siding with who via banners, but I was thinking that we lock it after a certain date. After that date whoever has the banner is in the contest. After the fight I will capture the most humiliating picture of the loser I can find from the fight and all of the members of the losing team have to sport that as their signature for either 1 or 2 weeks. What do you think guys? Oh and FUCK GSP.
