    Still the best of the genre for me

    Yes, absolutely. All superb. Sports Night was one of the best TV shows of all time. It was criminal for ABC(?) to cancel it

    I know you're not serious when you say that

    That show was short lived but actually pretty good. Probably the best thing he ever did. I'd say it was sandwiched somewhere between Mr. President and Parker Lewis Can't Lose on the Fox sitcom timeline

    Did you ever watch Get a Life with Chris Elliott on the early Fox network?

    I'd only be any good if the questions went through about 1992. I get pretty fuzzy after that, especially in this horrible era of reality and contest TV

    TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    I haven't seen a game there yet. I wasn't that big a fan of the old ACS in terms of the actual structure, but the new place just felt foreign to me. It is beautiful, but it lacks a certain intimacy. Then again, I've only seen it empty

    Fenway is a dump and I don't like it. It's better than it used to be but still awful

    There were certainly elements of it that felt more Disney than TCU

    I doubt you're the only one who feels that way. I visited the stadium over Christmas break right after the Armed Forces Bowl. It's absolutely stunning but pretty soulless. It didn't feel like home. I guess that's progress
