Maybe I should’ve remembred all sane people tuned out of the game by the start of the 4th?

The Saints drew 10.85 million cable households, compared with 11.2 million for the debate.

(USA Today)

350,000 of you made me look dumb. Good job.

So I was trying to work this out at 1 AM last night – like all matters of great importance – and I’m missing a piece.

While certian people are mocking the power of ESPN to make the world right, I’d like to remember to post my prediction that ATL/NO will be the highest rated show in the history of cable TV. And so there it is. (Last week was the second highest, so this is equivalant to predicting “I will stay up way too late for no good reason”.)

I watched far too much of that game. What about that great halftime “encore”, consisting of one minute of repeated footage, totally awesome.

Note: I wrote this on Monday and forget to push it live. Oops.

Cubs drop back to 30 under, 63-93
Reds flip flop, 76-79

POTG: RF Buck Coats (HR, like he’s ever going to win one again)
Runner Up: RP Michael Wuertz (1.2 IP, 0 R, BB, 2 K); tough to reward Mateo when he can only go 5.

I’m still not sure why I was in a good mood. I mean, I saw the end of this game. That should’ve killed me, again.

Heat 09/23

Sep
25

yay for easy recaps on long nights.

My idea for Trish Heat was better, but you figured I’d say that.

Heat Schedule, based on RAW tapings
09/30 – matches taped 09/25 in Oklahoma (bad night for JR!)
10/07 – matches taped 10/02 in Topeka (bad night for Coach!)
10/14 – in studio features
10/21 – in studio features
10/28 – matches taped 10/23 in Chicago (bad night for me!)
11/04 – in studio features
11/11 – in studio features
11/18 – matches taped 11/13 in Manchester, England (maybe?)

As many no match shows as those with matches, and I assume this’ll be the status quo while ECW is aruond and not getting their own tapings.

Dreams do come true
