No Hockey Tonight. Is Something Else On?
Not that we'd know.... or care. For the second year running, Eleanor spent the day listening to Indigo Girls CDs- about as anti-testosterone as you can get in this world.  We spent the first half of That Thing instead watching the Mel Brooks one-man show that HBO premiered last night. For a magical hour, he told stories from his chidhood, the Borscht Belt, his "Show of Shows" days with Sid Caesar, and his experiences on many of his movies, several of which he honored by belting out their theme songs. They included his Hitchcock homage High Anxiety, which he screened for Hitch and was thrilled to find that the old man loved, and Blazing Saddles, which inspired the userpic for this post (Wilder took over the role on very short notice from Gig Young, who drank and upchucked his way off the set). Not bad for a 2000 88 year old man:)

Okay, you want thoughts about the gladiatorial contest du jour? Fine:


(They're tied at halftime, which is as close as we're gonna get;)

Both teams are eminently dislikable, and thus I am thrilled to see them mocked. Yesterday, we discovered Key and Peele's takeoff of Seattle's Legion of Bullshit combo:

Meanwhile, Wegmans- or at least A Wegmans- took advantage of New England's Ballghazi controversy in coming up with this:

That was apparently taken at Eleanor's store, and they stopped selling them on Friday.  I've seen comments, both on that piece and elsewhere, suggesting that the "promotion" was shot down by Wegmans corporate, since they have at least one store in eastern Massachusetts and wouldn't want the viral attention from something like.... oops.

Wake us when it's all over.
