Late Last Call

I went to a hockey game Monday night and in the third period, the beer vendors started announcing last call.  Normally this wouldn’t have registered so much with me, but tonight it did.  Why?  There were exaclty 4 minutes and 22 seconds left in the game.   This didn’t seem like an adequate amount of time to consume (and enjoy) a 16 oz beer and leave the stadium.

Wii Sports Scoring Glitch

I’ve been playing Wii Sports for a few weeks now and my ongoing tennis score keeps rising. It got me wondering what the highest skill level score one could achieve on the game. A quick google search says that 2399 is the highest possible score you can get. I’m not quite there, but during my progress I noticed a glitch in the graph that shows you your progress. The graph actually isn’t large enough to contain the valid data points:

Scrabble on ESPN

There has to be something other than scrabble that ESPN could have on at 3 PM on a Sunday. Maybe if scrabble was on ESPN2 I could understand a little more. Or maybe if it was the National Scrabble Finals, like the Spelling Bee, it would merit being televised. As I type this, Lindsay asks “Isn’t there football on?”

Drew Carey Hosts Price is Right Disappoints

Has anyone else watched the new Price is Right with Drew Carey? I set the DVR to record one of the typical 11 am shows not to long ago and was severely disappointed. I had to stop watching in the middle of the first pricing game. The girl contestant was taking a long time to give a number, and I sat there waiting and expecting the typical “Come on now Erica, I need a number” response Barker would have snapped out. Instead, timid Drew just kinda stood there waiting. He just doesn’t have that charisma that Barker had.

Listen to Bob push her along; I miss how he made the idiots feel, well, like idiots:

Here’s a clip from the new show, its ok, only because the contestants situation is funny. Apparently this is the only funny moment because a quick search of youtube for ‘price is right drew carey’ returns basically nothing.
