Another week, another series of highs and lows in the Fish Bowl. No need to get into it right now, since the only other person who goes through as many pendulum swings is Debbie. I truly think she’s on the brink of something. Mutiny? Redemption? A nervous breakdown…?

And while I don’t want to be the guy who makes fun of anyone with a mental disorder, I do want to be the guy who makes fun of the “reality star” who thinks she’s a big-time player and knows what’s up…on her 2nd time playing!

But what about the Debbie Wanner we don’t know? Who is she? Where did she come from? What does she really do for a living? I don’t care about any of that, but I do care about the scandalous things she did in her past. Excuse me, what? Scandalous? You seriously didn’t know about her scandalous past? Well, let the Fish enlighten you about something Debbie did long before she earned the title of Reality Show Moron.

Now, … Continue reading

Man, what a difference a week makes. Last week (or, shall I say, a few days ago) I was high as a kite. Riding the positive waves of love and support coming from all of you. And then…March Madness happened. And while I’m a frickin’ yuge fan of NCAA basketball, it really bit us in the pooper.

Even though he took the blame for it, I can’t fault Reality Steve for holding the column. Let’s get that clear right off. Because any time there’s a choice between Survivor and a sportsbook, I’m leaning sportsbook. Sorry if that diminishes my Überfan credentials, but c’mon…it’s March frickin’ Madness. I remember road tripping to Tucson in 1989 to the McKale Center for the 1st Round. That trip is a little foggy cuz we did some pot back then. But I do remember driving 100mph across the desert, staying at a dingy motel near Arizona Univ., and seeing the finals bound Seton Hall Pirates file past us into the arena. They looked like criminals…

I remember the 1990 tournament … Continue reading

Welcome back, one and all, to a little something we call the season long Survivor roast. Now that doesn’t mean I’m necessarily gonna be ripping everyone all season, quite the contrary. I’m still a Survivor Über-fan at heart, but it’s just so gosh darn fun to poke fun at these guys, isn’t it?

Fish is in particularly high spirits tonight, so I hope that bodes well for the recap. It’s always easier to write when in a good mood – that’s why writing and tequila doesn’t mix for me – and there are so many reasons to be happy.

First, I’ve been getting a lot of love this week on social media. Fish fans, readers, Survivor fans, frickin’ COACH! A lot of love has been coming this way, so lemme throw my hands up and bow down at your feet. You’re the reason I do this – it certainly ain’t the money! – and I do appreciate all those messages…especially the dirty ones (you know who you are!).

If you don’t follow me on Twitter, … Continue reading
