Sean Avery: Good Or Bad For Rangers, NHL?

posted by mattaug

I like Sean Avery’s style of play and I root for him to succeed. Of course that’s mostly because he plays for my favorite NHL team: the New York Rangers. But I “grapple with”, pardon the expression, his behavior both […]

Red Sox Should Hire Bobby Valentine

posted by mattaug

A short while back I wrote that Bobby Valentine should be ashamed for referring to “baseball gods”. I also pointed out that many other people say gods of this and gods of that and we should consider being more respectful […]

NBA Strike Over: Christmas Baskets For All

posted by mattaug

So the NBA labor strife between billionaire owners and millionaire players is over … Who cares? I do. In the past I would have said to heck with both sides and the NBA is perhaps my fourth favorite sport anyway. […]

Five More Things I’m Thankful For On TV

posted by mattaug

I can’t get enough of Thanksgiving … the food or the sentiment. I also realized there were more things to list than I did in my previous feature about five things on television I am thankful for. Such as: Magazine […]

Five Things About TV I Am Thankful For…

posted by mattaug

It seems like a good time to do an inspiring post about the best things about TV. No. 1 FOX News: The liberal left can whine all it wants about FOX News being slanted to the right, but I say […]

Will Charlie Rose, Gayle King Get Rise Out Of Morning Viewers?

posted by mattaug

It will be interesting to see how the new recently announced Charlie Rose-Gayle King tandem will perform on The Early Show on CBS when the duo debut Jan 9. I’ve always liked Rose, but he’s just SO relaxed … how […]

Curses! People Losing Control On TV

posted by mattaug

What was it about the past week or so on television? About a week and a half ago political pundit Bob Beckel lost his cool and yelled out “That’s B.S.!” (the full word) on the FOX News show The Five. […]

Hate To Snicker, But Is Candy Ad Funny?

posted by mattaug

I’ve been meaning to write about this one for some time, but wasn’t quite sure how to address it. Is the ad for Snickers, the one where two sharks “discuss” the difference of how people tasted, and decide the person […]

Remember Davey and Goliath?

posted by mattaug

Remember Davey and Goliath? Now that, my friends, WAS a cartoon! Ok..credit for this post goes to a high school alumnae of mine, JoAnne, who mentioned Davy and Goliath and The Little Rascals were two shows she just couldn’t shut […]

Fallon, Nevada … Named After Jimmy?

posted by mattaug

If Fallon, Nevada ISN’T named after Jimmy Fallon, NBC‘s late night talk show host …. well it SHOULD be! His dead-ringer impression, pardon the expression, of Jim Morrison the former front-man of The Doors is amazing. And his stint as […]

A (Howard) Stern Rebuke For NBC

posted by mattaug

When I heard Piers Morgan had an announcement to make last week I was kind of hoping it would be that he is giving up his CNN talk show in order to continue on with NBC‘s America’s Got Talent. Morgan […]

I Don’t Get Dan Patrick …

posted by mattaug

“You know Matt, you’re in danger of becoming a parody of yourself,” said a relative once, in trying to hurt my feelings. I kind of know what he means, and I still do it. I press hard, sometimes too hard, […]

Penn State Should Drop College Football

posted by mattaug

Having a college football program is a privilege, not a right. Some colleges, Penn State for one, should drop their college football programs IMMEDIATELY. And this is coming from someone, me, who loves sports and athletics … when they bring […]

JoePa Must Go … Now!

posted by mattaug

Too much has been said … and more importantly … done. Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, who reportedly will resign AFTER the season in the wake of sex abuse charges against a former assistant coach, should leave NOW. The […]

Duggars Deliver … In More Ways Than One

posted by mattaug

I am going to be a hypocrite here in today’s feature, but just a little bit. I often rail on reality shows, for instance, but in reality not all of them are bad. The Duggars on TLC, for instance, are […]

“Oh, Deer” Get Gary A Reality Show!

posted by mattaug

Some of you who wrote in about my “uptight about TV” feature the other day may be right: Who needs TV? I may not need reality shows any more thanks to my neighbor, Gary. I think I will just put […]

Magic Johnson’s Assisted On, Off Court

posted by mattaug

There are a few events I remember exactly where I was when I heard they happened. The plane crash that took the life of New York Yankees catching great Thurman Munson was one such event. Nov. 7, 1991, when Los […]

I Miss ‘The Jetsons’…What ‘Toons Do You Watch?

posted by mattaug

One of my favorite cartoons growing up was The Jetsons. I enjoyed the earnestness of George, the consistency of Jane, his wife, daughter Judy, his boy Elroy … the theme song, that goes like that, is playing in my head. […]

Uptight, Upset About What’s On TV

posted by mattaug

An old family friend wrote in the other day “man, you are tight, lol”. He was referring to my recent feature on ESPN analyst Bobby Valentine in which I knocked the former Mets manager for using the expression “baseball gods”, […]

‘Where’s The Beef?’ Wendy’s, Of Course

posted by mattaug

I LOVE my trip to Wendy’s every couple of weeks because I enjoy their burgers and their salads. Yes … that’s right the salads. Wendy’s has some of the most creative ones around and I still say it’s good to […]

Ex-NBA coach Phil Jackson In Car Ad Action

posted by mattaug

Former NBA coach Phil Jackson is pretty good in an ad he is currently starring in for Audi. “Jax”, who led the Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls to championships, tells a restaurant boss yelling at an underling that “I […]

Don’t Keep Up With The Kardashians

posted by mattaug

Sorry for those of you who are “offended” if Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries wedding was a set up to make millions of dollars and gain more viewers to the E! network reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. If […]

Congrats DirecTV Viewers, You Win Again

posted by mattaug

I am a U-Verse customer but I gotta’ admit, there’s something special about DirecTV. That’s especially true when it comes to sports … DirecTV’s got the most channels and the most in HD as well. And although it’s too rich […]
