What to do while you're dreaming of a competent bullpen...

  • Bad Boys, ESPN, 7pm: The newest 30 for 30 documentary, about the late-80s Detroit Pistons. 
  • NHL Playoffs: Chicago at St. Louis, 7pm, NBCSports: if you're into that sort of thing...
  • Community/Parks and Rec, NBC, 8pm: Season finale for Community, which has been stellar in Dan Harmon's return from exile. 
  • NCIS, CBS, 9pm: Watch it, then you'll have something to talk about with your parents (for once)!
  • Scandal, ABC, 9pm: Watch it, then you'll have something to talk about with your boring friends!

Since the Marlins will host Seattle over the weekend, take a gander at Where'd You Go, Bernadette, the second novel from Maria Semple. Set in my adopted home, it is a fun read about a Seattle transplant who gets progressively unhinged as the plot develops. It is worth your time, and if you've lived in Seattle you'll find the sections where the main character complains about her home to be very true to life. Semple used to write for Arrested Development, and her comedic chops are strong.


The Jonah Keri podcast made its triumphant return this week, now part of Grantland's podcast lineup. Listen to it here, and try not to get the best theme song in podcasting stuck in your head.
