A howdy doo to all of you and we obviously have a few things to discuss. First off, let me just state the obvious…the Dodgers were outclassed, outplayed, outcoached, and outperformed. There’s no other way to put it. And what makes it even worse is this whole city expected to win. It was in the bag. That’s the thing I’ve always noticed about L.A., we just expect things to go our way.

-maybe if Dave Roberts thought about “the feel” of the game instead of Sabermetrics?
-maybe if Cody Bellinger realized you need to change things up when you hit a skid?
-maybe if someone listened to Steve Garvey?

But you know what? The city of Houston had a sh**ty year, so let’s hope their first World Series cheers them up a little bit. Call it…Karmic Payback. And hopefully the Dodgers will learn a thing or two about playing up to the challenge. You need to rise to the occasion in these games, and not just expect Clayton Kershaw to win every game for you…

And we have two football teams!

Ok, the other elephant in the room is the My Two Cents column. Not gonna go into the full explanation of why it’s not there anymore, but after speaking to Reality Steve, we agreed that writing a Survivor recap in one “voice” and then the My Two Cents column in another may be too big of a contrast. We decided to stick to the Survivor snarky/boozy voice that I find in a bottle, and leave the drunken rants about politics to another forum.

Sounds good to me…

So, let’s dive into the Snooze Lagoon and see what drama is unfolds this week. We know Cole takes a header – not into Jessica’s crotch – so that won’t be as fun as it could have been. Starvation, my butt, he just wants some mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Too bad it’ll be Doctor Dick providing it, since he’s the nearest person with medical training. Awesome… To the beach!

Previously on…Survivor!

-At Levu, it’s Lil Tony/Desi vs. Devon/the Lifeguard
-At Yawa, I guess there’s a reason for Cole’s piggish behavior
-At Soko, the bellhop made a “Sophie’s Choice,” and someone ain’t gettin’ his laundry picked up anymore by Ali the PA.

“13 are left, who will be voted out tonight?”


  1. Digging the 80 s references. Maybe some Bob and Doug Mackenzie lines for JP next week. You are not the only one who noticed the camera men are into the backsides of Survivor this season. Ali ass has been on tv more than her face . This was the behind the scenes look at Jessica s bum this week. Maybe they hired a bunch of ex Hollywood execs as cameramen. Awesome strategy in the immunity challenge . I agree no one seemed to notice that once they had the person with the block entirely drop the rope it seemed much much easier . Not a Joe fan but he is showing a lot and not just of his package. I guess the trend of sending home the physical threats isn’t happening this year. Ben, JP , Cole, Joe,Desi and Devon should make for some interesting challenges. Then you have the brains like Mike and Ryan . The strategist Chrissy, Lauren and Ashley. I think this season more than most we are not seeing as much of the strategy . I think its because there is a lot going on. The dead weight is about gone, I think this season will get really good really fast .

  2. Rick! Thanks for the comment, dude. Man, it was getting a little lonely around here… 😉

    Glad you’re diggin’ the jokes, too. It’s funny what pops into my head when I write/drink. No idea how that “16 Candles” thing came up, but I’m happy you got it. And yeah, let’s hope there’s a reason to mention “back-bacon” and “aboot” in the next episode… Is he seriously from Canada? And thank you for confirming what I’m seeing with the butts. There’s nothing wrong with showing some booty on TV, which is one of the reasons some fans tune in. Nowadays, you can’t say anything remotely sexist without being lambasted for it. I know you know that, and I know you dig a little “locker room banter” in the recap. As I’ve said before, if they don’t like what I write, that’s fine. But I don’t need to know they don’t like it. Just don’t read it. But this current attitude that everyone needs to be respectful of everyone else all the time is kinda hard to accept when you’re a writer… If you’re writing comedy, sometimes you gotta take some chances. Some people won’t like it. Some will.

    And I agree with you on the rest of the season. This is what I’ve always wanted: a bunch of strong players after the merge. Let’s see them fight it out in the challenges and hopefully have enough brains to make some big moves. And hopefully there are no “personal story” distractions to tilt the game in someone’s favor. Looking forward to the rest of the season.

    Now, back to the Cowboys-Chiefs game!
