If anybody likes strange but good television then I cannot recommend Black Mirror on Netflix any higher. Modern Day Twilight Zone.

The Stagg Bowl is leaving Salem...wow!  :o

Salem had a good run for sure and should have special meaning this year...not sure what a Stagg Bowl will look like in Houston.

Texas?  Maybe they think they'll get an automatic big crowd in Texas.  Or perhaps the cities offered greater subsidies.

I like the idea that the championship was in the same spot every year. It gave the event depth, making it q destination as well as a game. What do I know?   I'm a stick in the mud.
Two years in TX then two years in Canton Ohio at the Tom Benson Hall of Fame stadium... that is a great choice
After the game, the king and pawn go into the same box.

I too have been curious when Mike will start working with Gustavo Freng.  Not a spoiler, I don't think, to say that it hasn't happened yet.  I lean towards another season or two until they start running parallel.

Another comment on this (how much more is there to say about the Stagg?).  This is why I think they are doing such a good job writing the script.  There are a lot of things we know will happen or current things that must stop but it's still engaging and a mystery as to how it happens.

* We know Mike works with Gustavo in BB.  How do they hook up?
* We know that Hector hates Gustavo for some reason (Hector killed Gustavo by suicide bomb in BB).  Why?
* We know that Jimmy McGill changes his name to Saul Goodman at some point.  Why?  When?
* We know that Jimmy's brother, Chuck, and girlfriend, Kim, are nowhere in BB.  What happened to them?

I'm sure there are more, but those are the ones that have me hooked.

Is it considered a victory if you are still serving life in prison?

  And just a coincidence that the crowd are all wearing Geelong colors, I guess.   :)

Well, they did destroy us on the weekend pretty much putting a fork in the season.  We can still make the finals but we'll be shot if we make it, having to play so hard from behind the 8-ball. This is a year of transition. Almost a third of the starters turned over. We'll see how well the playing group gels by season end and then look to next year's campaign.

It's like supporting the Vikings this year. Not even 20% of the way into the season and already talking about next year.

Ha!  I bet the original Doritos work best. People are always trying new fangled baits and lures but nothing works as well as the old-fashioned worm.

I'll put those three onto the list. We watched The Killing season one and quite liked it but got distracted by the time season two came out.  A friend recommended Turn but the wife saw uniforms and make believe so that was vetoed (I did explain she pretty much described any TV show).  I just read a synopsis of Revolution and that's one for me - the wife refuses to watch those dystopian settings.

No make believe,  no dystopia. Cop show are good, tick. Lawyers,  tick.  Crime, tick.  War, aliens, dystopia, buzzzzzz.
We went through The Killing, first season was great, until the ending, tapered off afterwards to a final maybe a year or two too late,  Longmire is a pretty good one to watch

UST's Dougherty Family College is now taking applications. If anyone knows underserved or needy folks who might excel in a highly supportive environment, please pass this along. Oh, and it would be nice if they're outstanding athletes who might want to transfer to UST's bachelor's degree program and play football.

It's the Battle of the Birds.  Hawthorn Hawks v West Coast Eagles.

We're having our fifth try at our first win today.  Both Sydney and North Melboune are winnless as well at 0-5, having already played this weekend, we we're not the only side looking to be renamed Owen.  Owen Five if it doesn't go well at the G this afternoon.
