Saturday Morning Coffee - The Bitter Blend

It's the weekend, it's the middle of summer and the fall sports season is just around the corner. What better time to unload a few things that are REALLY pissing me off today:

- What the hell is wrong with Comedy Central? Remember when Comedy Central used to be the sure-fire bet in channel flipping? You could always catch an episode of Dave Atell's "Insomniac" or a rerun of South Park. During the day, you could almost guarantee that a great 80's comedy like 'Better off Dead' or a great new comedy like 'Singers' or 'Office Space' would be on. But what in the FUCK is up with the CONSTANT string of HIDEOUS shows they are parading across my T.V.? "STELLA?" Have you seen this fucking thing? I've had STD's funnier than that show. (Just kidding, they're called social diseases). And have you ever noticed that as soon as a Comedy Central show like "Con" or "Distraction" or whatever gets hyped for about 4 months...it's gone in about 2 episodes when it finally airs? YOu guys know me..I'm not TV expert. But why fuck up the last bastion of TV left on the air? It's bad enough they fucked up MTV with stupid-ass reality shows and that g*d damn Daria. But not Comedy Central. It's a sad sad day.

- Still no further comment on the Husker steroid story. Man, I thought the local stations would be all over that one. Still holding my breath to see if Dave Webber or one of the local Husker zombies tries to bring down the program. I'll let you know when I start to turn blue or lose consciousness.

- Finally, did I see Omaha Royals General Manager Doug Stewart take a swipe at the "past administration" for the financial downfall his team has taken. Uhhhhh...excuse me Doug, but you are the one who started charging 9 bucks a seat (they used to be 6), took away the buyout nights and freebies, and you wonder why nobody showed up? You turned Casey...a local icon fit for a rock star in the eyes of kids and turned him into a fat, overweight hybrid between Grimace and one of the Care Bears. YOU are completely responsible for taking a once mediocre franchise and blasting it into the ground. YOU are the one who decided that merchandise sales didn't mean a whole lot, so you changed the name back. And don't get me started on how the Golden Spikes name was dumb. It was. But the year before the name was changed, do you know how many fucking hats they sold? SIX. SIX FUCKING HATS. They sold 153 on the first night after the name change alone. Yeah, the "old administration" is responsible. Enjoy the bath your taking, and don't let that rail they're going to ride you out of town on hit you in the ass.

Vacation is only a week away kids. I can feel the hate burning for a late week finale. Look for that soon.


PS - I hate Kate. (Who can figure that one out?)

I just glanced at it on my way out the door this morning, they talk to Dr. Albers about how to 'cheat' on a drug test...or what drugs don't show up on the test...

Interesting. It's sad if that kind of thing is really going on. I wouldn't lay into them too bad on this, because I'm sure it does happen almost anywhere.

What I won't tolerate is the continuation of the "We're the greatest program on earth" and "We do nothing wrong because everybody loves us" bullshit. They're just as dirty as anybody else, and as soon as it comes to light..we'll have a little talk about it.

Is anyone really surprised that NU has been using the "roids"? How else could they win?

P.S. Don't let Bailey read about NU, he will go into a white-hot fire ball of fury! It is a pretty ugly site...curls of white fur in the air...just a flash of white as he tears by your feet...what a deadly combonation of 15 lbs and anger!

Love my Fremont fans.

And yes, that Bailey gets pretty damn pissed off when he wants to.

I'd hate to break it to you, AJ - and I can't believe I'm saying this - but South Park might have been the beginning of the end for Comedy Central.

Well? Before South Park came on the air, Comedy Central was more or less the real-life UHF of cable television. But - and admit this. now. - after South Park, Comedy Central's "original programming" (Distraction doesn't count) has only gotten shittier and shittier, except for MAYBE Chapelle's Show.
