However, to make me feel like my last three days weren't a complete waste, I'd like to share some images and deep intellectual observations from a weekend in from in front of the boob tube...
But while Madden was pretty grating, I'm still trying to figure out what the guys at Animal Planet are thinking (smoking?!). I don't know if anyone else happened to stumble across their channel on Super Bowl Sunday, but in case you missed it, they were airing, from 1 pm to 10 pm (MST), back-to-back-to-back-to-back showings of "Puppy Bowl II".
In case you missed it, basically Animal Planet just puts a bunch of dog toys and puppies in a silly-looking playpen and film them running around for a ridiculously long amount of time. Seriously. Take a look:
In all honesty, I'm still trying to figure out how I sat through 10 minutes of the thing, let alone stop to ponder how one could watch 3 hours worth of that stuff. Good grief.
Editor's Note: These images have not been fabricated or maliciously altered - what you have seen is the cold hard truth.
Also, if you know this guy, would you tell him that CJ from Unknown Knowns and Other Ramblings would like to schedule an interview? Thanks.
Finally, TNT was having a "Big Dumb Good Guy" movie marathon or something Friday night (meaning Stallone and Schwarzenegger films), and I have to admit the tough guys always have a way with words...
-Sylvester Stallone as Judge Dredd
Now if you'll excuse me, I have an episode of the X-Files to catch.
