Okay, so I'm usually not really into sports, um, at all, which I think is a pretty well known fact about me. Like, you can start talking about sports and I'll try to keep up as best as I can, but after awhile I'll get kinda glossy-eyed because I have no idea what you're talking about and it starts to sound like you're speaking Egyptian and, well, I'm sorry about that glossy-eyedness thing I mentioned that I get, it's just that, well, it just happens.
But if I was going to pick my favorite sport, the only one that I really have any investment in is football--two of my brothers play football, see, and my brothers are pretty much the coolest people in the world, so if they love football, well then I'm happy I love the game too, dammit. Therefore, football's my favorite sport.
For the sake of full disclosure, I also have to admit that I've always loved movies about football. Especially movies about high school football. Um, remember that Goldie Hawn movie Wildcats? Yeah, I love it. And the Sean Aston movie Rudy? Turns me into a blubbering mess. I love underdogs.
Anyway, enough about me. One of my friends is on the writing staff of "Friday Night Lights," which premieres Tuesday night on NBC at 8pm, and she has assured me that the show is awesome, and even if she hadn't assured me, I think it looks pretty awesome myself, based on the promos (clink on the links in this sentence to see them) and I'm really looking forward to the show. I thought I'd pass on my friend's assurance of the show's awesomeness, and tell y'all to watch the show too, and then maybe, if we all like it, then we can, like, gab about the show together and stuff.
(By the way, as far as other new shows go, I love love love Ugly Betty so much I could marry it, I'm fascinated by Dexter and I already think Michael C. Hall should get an Emmy [except his character is way too fucked up to be recognized by Emmy voters], I'm getting really tired of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip but I'll give it one more week just because so many other people like it so much, I'm embarrassed to admit how much I really truly completely love Standoff, I'm so utterly bored by Brothers & Sisters that I took it off my Tivo list of shows to be recorded, I'm so utterly "eh" about Smith that I took it off my Tivo list of shows to be recorded, I thought Six Degrees only had two interesting degrees [Hope Davis and Campbell Scott] and that's not enough to hold my interest so I took it off my Tivo list of shows to be recorded, I'm totally into Kidnapped even though it almost feels like there's too much plot sometimes I'm still totally into it [and Jeremy Sisto could read the phone book and I'd be like "that dude has so much damage I wanna see more"], I thought Jericho was too depressing for words and not in a good way, and I like Men In Trees but it's no Ugly Betty.) (Oh, and if you think I watch way too much television, I'd like to point out that of the ten shows listed above, I just took five of them off of my Tivo list of shows to be recorded, so I'm not as much of a sloth as you think I am.)
