Irish Olympic Sailing Commentator

June 8, 2014 // 0 Comments

I love Reddit. I spend an inordinate amount of time on there. The place can be great and it can be all the things that are the worst about the internet. It really depends on what you are looking for. I was reading a story on Reddit today about how the sailing venue in Rio will not be cleaned up of the corpses and dead dogs and pollution in time for the 2016 Olympics. That is a terrible story both for what is happening there now and for the fact that even with 2 years to go, they won’t be ...Click for More

Verbatim – What is a Photocopier

June 3, 2014 // 0 Comments

One of us that writes on this site is an attorney so I’m sure when he sees this video, he’ll think it makes perfect sense. To those of us who aren’t attorneys, who think is clear and common-sense terms, this video will be both funny and annoying at the same time. First it’s funny because this scene is a performance of a court deposition word for word according to the transcript. You won’t believe how this goes. You might find it annoying, like I did, when you ...Click for More

Batman of the Office

May 25, 2014 // 0 Comments

The Batman series from College Humor are some of the funniest videos ever put on the internet. If you haven’t seen them, you are really missing out. They were created by one of my favorite comedians, Pete Holmes. The series is just fantastic. A few days ago, they just released a new video in the series. This time, they take a look at what it would be like if Batman were working in an office. If you are a fan of this series, you will enjoy this video. Batman of the Office   There are ...Click for More

Mike Rowe Gets Naked for Scholarships

May 8, 2014 // 0 Comments

Mike Rowe has a foundation called Mike Rowe Works that focuses on the skilled trades and labor jobs in this country. There is a shortage of people heading in to those fields and Mike Rowe thinks that is not good. I agree with him and am glad to see him doing something about it. He is currently offering through his foundation free ride scholarships to people who want to enter the truck driving or mechanic fields. From what I’ve heard, there are not many people taking him up on his offer so ...Click for More

Scott Carroll Will Endorse Anything

April 28, 2014 // 0 Comments

I’m not too big on the whole Cubs/Sox thing.  I’m a Cubs fan and that hate thing is really only something Sox fans do because of their insecurities. I was listening to the Boers and Berstein radio show today and they played this video (just the sound because you know, they are on the radio). The video you are about to watch here is from Chicago White Sox pitcher Scott Carroll. The intent of this video seems to be trying to get himself out there for endorsement deals. What is not ...Click for More

Bad Lip Reading Does Game of Thrones

April 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

I know I’m kind of late to this video, but I’m also just very recently all caught up on Game of Thrones so you’ll have to forgive me if you are one of those GOT nerds who has seen absolutely everything there is to see on the internet. Double apologies if you have read the books. The video you are about to watch was not in the books so don’t flip out.  You might have heard of the folks at Bad Lip Reading. They’ve gotten huge in the last year. They’ve even ...Click for More

Brian Williams Raps to Gin and Juice

April 23, 2014 // 0 Comments

If you haven’t seen NBC’s Brian Williams rapping to Rappers Delight, you are missing out. It’s some of Jimmy Fallon’s best work. Well, Fallon and whatever intern he made sit and pull all these clips together are back with a new video. Brian Williams raps to Gin and Juice by Snoop D O Double G. I would hate to be the unpaid intern who has to find these clips. Brian Williams Raps to Gin and Juice   This is the kind of thing that is right up Fallon’s alley. This ...Click for More

Golfing With Paulina Gretzky

April 16, 2014 // 0 Comments

Even though we just got another 2 inches of snow here in Chicago on Monday, we are getting ever so much closer to golf season.  While we are usually an all things TV related blog, sometimes we like to cover other topics. We are just a bunch of guys and Midwest Mark after all over here.  If we want to talk sports we’re going to talk sports.  Oh, and if we want to call golf a sport, we’re going to do that as well. Plus we know you guys don’t read firetruck what we say ...Click for More

Episodes – Best Show You’ve Never Heard Of

April 9, 2014 // 0 Comments

The problem with shows on pay cable is that a lot of us are too cheap to pay to get the premium channels.  That means we sometimes miss out on great shows.  Episodes is one of those shows for me.  I was late to the party and am still not caught up but as I recently caught up on Scandal I needed a new show. Episodes is a funny show.  Matt Leblanc is a funny guy.  How can you not love a show with Joey from Friends.  Probably my favorite thing about this show is that he plays himself.  ...Click for More

Matthew McConaughey’s SAG Award Acceptance Speech

January 18, 2014 // 0 Comments

MATTHEW MCCONAUGHEY is a national treasure in his own right.  I love when this guy talks.  There is no telling what bizarre direction things are heading. Spending one minute inside his head would be an extremely frightening ordeal.  In the middle of his acceptance speech for his (well deserved) SAG award for his performance in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB, he veers off course into boat building carpenters and landing on Neptune.  Check it out, it’s totally worth it. Matthew McConaughey ...Click for More

Happy Festivus!

December 23, 2013 // 0 Comments

It’s a Festivus for the rest of us!  Happy Festivus everyone! We would be remiss if we didn’t recognize one of the greatest alternative holidays ever created by TV.  There has been a much less publicized war on Festivus over the years but we are here to keep the tradition alive. We want to keep the festive in Festivus. It’s gotten so commercial lately. Here is the story of Festivus for those who may not remember:   Frank Costanza is one of my all-time favorite TV ...Click for More

Paul Rudd on Conan

December 13, 2013 // 0 Comments

Paul Rudd is one of my, and my wife and daughter’s, favorite actors. He’s hysterically funny and I’ve really enjoyed just about all the movies he’s done. He doesn’t really make bad movie choices. You might have known this about him, but whenever he is on Conan O’Brien’s show to promote a movie, he shows the same exact movie clip every time. He’s been doing it for over 15 years now. It’s such a simple prank but so funny. Here is a compilation ...Click for More
