It's kind of ridiculous how much time I spend watching baseball.
6 months out of the year, April through October, there's a game on.
Whether it's the Mets and I'm watching with intense interest, or I'm bouncing around for different at-bats or pitchers according to my fantasy team, or I've just got a game on for background noise while I do schoolwork, there are few nights when I don't have baseball on in some capacity.
Which is why, here on November 9th, I need your help.
This is a down time of year for my TV-watching, and I want to take advantage of it. My wife and I use the time to catch up on DVR-ed shows - we watch "The Office", "How I Met Your Mother", and, theoretically, "30 Rock". (I say 'theoretically' because we have a ton of episodes recorded but haven't gotten around to watching them.)
My wife watches other 'girl' shows ("Desperate Housewives", CW-type shows as well), and I need my own choice.
You see, after I put our youngest daughter to bed, there is about an hour or so of down time for me before she has put our oldest to bed. I used to have a baseball game on, and now I'd like to fill the time with something other than whatever game I picked in ESPN's 'Streak' game.
So your suggestions are welcome. I suspect some suggestions might have to deal with late-night TV...certainly Conan, and maybe Jimmy Fallon, are options on DVR. This doesn't have to be strictly sports-related. I enjoy history, if there's something you think might catch my interest in that genre. And I like a good comedy if you have any suggestions there.
It could be brand-new...or something I've never seen that's in syndication. All I'm looking for is something to veg out to for a bit. (Don't worry about me - I read plenty.) And it could be sports-related - I'm sure I'm missing some entertaining stuff on the NFL or MLB Networks. Broaden my horizons.
The added benefit is, of course, that I will sometimes write about what I'm watching, so if you're a fan as well, you can chime in on my thoughts.
I only have time for one other show in my life...so give me some good options.
By the way, I'm still getting used to this new site, you probably are too. I have no idea how you can make a comment here. So I'll revive the ol' firstname.lastname@example.org e-mail address for your contributions.
