Great Moments in Televison History

I'll be damned if I didn't forget the 20th anniversary of the Max Headroom Pirating Incident, an infamous (yet surreally funny) part of Chicago TV history. Having remembered watching Max Headroom as a child (Turd Boy even had a Max t-shirt!), it's hard to believe the impact it would have years later.

Imagine, if you will, that you are a Bears fan living in Chi-town. (Mind you, you'd immediately be a moron, because the Bears suck.) You missed the game against the Packers or Vikings or whoever the hell they played, so you plan on catching the highlights on WGN-TV (before satellite became a hit) that evening. Dan Roan (God, he's still on the network after all these years!) sets you up for some highlights. All of a sudden, some interference occurs and you get a brief glimpse of what appears to be Max Headroom grinning like a loon. A few seconds later, cut back to Dan Roan, looking confused as hell. Apparently the pirate's attempt to hijack WGN's signal was a failure.

But it gets better. Much, much, better.

Now let's imagine you're a sci-fi geek, and apparently a subscriber to public television. You park your ass on your basement sofa for WTTW's Sunday night airing of Doctor Who. Fifteen minutes later, apparently when some shit is going to go down with the Time Lord, "Max" strikes again......

The dude never got caught. The lucky bastard. That whole incident probably made some great conversation at work the following day. That is, unless you were a Bears fan desperate for highlights or a PBS subscriber. Enjoy the trip down memory lane, Midwesterners. And thank you Mr. Pirate, wherever you are.

Happy Holiday, Happy Holiday...

Because I have that damned song in my's the holiday season. There's no snow, but it's awfully cold. And it's getting close to my birthday. I can hardly wait.

So seeing as it's holiday time, there'll probably be a slight increase in posts. Besides the football picks, and hopefully bizarro stories, as well as the inevitable 2007 Christmas Song List, I should be making my presence known. I hope.

BlanketyBlog Toilet Bowl.....WE HAVE A LOSER!!!

After ten weeks of stink-it-up action, we have Plunged our last team. The St. Louis Rams upset the New Orleans Saints, which means that we have just one Turd left in the Bowl....


Pick-wise, I was shit. 3-8-3. I still had 3 more correct picks than the Dolphins. Ba-ZING!!


  • Buccaneers vs. Falcons. Go with the Bucs.
  • Browns vs. Ravens. Cleveland got lucky the first time. Ravens get the W.
  • Cardinals vs. Bengals. Shits and Giggles Pick: Arizona.
  • Giants vs. Lions. This could be a really good game. I'll go with Detroit at home.
  • Panthers vs. Packers. Trap game? Computer says "No!" Packers win.
  • Saints vs. Texans. A chance for Reggie Bush to show Houston what they passed on in '06. Texans in an upset.
  • Chiefs vs. Colts. GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY, what has happened to Indy? Chefs in an upset.
  • Chargers vs. Jaguars. LT has been a bit of a disappointment, although based on the trend of RBs doing crappy after their breakout year, that's not a big surprise. Chargers still win.
  • Raiders vs. Vikings. No Adrian Peterson, no chance. Raiders win.
  • Dolphins vs. Eagles. Go watch Ace Ventura instead of this game; it's far more entertaining, and it gives me a chance to break out the Ray Finkel jokes. Take yer pick.
  • Steelers vs. Jets. J-E-T-S SUCK! SUCK! SUCK! Steelers should win this.
  • Redskins vs. Cowboys. Trap game? Hmmm.....take yer pick.
  • Rams vs. 49ers. The Rams have to be feeling good after finally posting a win...I'll go with them over San Fran.
  • Bears vs. Seahawks. Last year, this would've been a good game. Both teams have been utter letdown. So who wins the battle between the last two Super Bowl losers? Gut pick says Seattle.
  • SUNDAY NIGHT.....TIME TO CHECK OUT MY DVD COLLECTION---OOOH, BACK TO SCHOOL! Patriots vs. Bills. Shits and Giggles Pick: the Bills.
  • MONDAY NIGHT FOOSBALL: Titans vs. Broncos. This time, Denver should actually win the damn game. I'm still pissed off over their last Monday nighter...seems like only weeks ago.

BlanketyBlog Toilet Bowl, Week Nine

You didn't miss anything. The Dolphins and Rams both had byes, and nobody cared.

Prediction wise: Yikes. A horrid 4-8-2. Hopefully one will rebound...


Byes: Cocky Cheating Assholes (formerly known as Patriots), Jets, Buccaneers, Texans

  • Falcons vs. Panthers. Who leads this division anyway? Take yer pick.
  • Vikings vs. Packers. Oooh. This game'll depend on how Adrian Peterson does. The Packers have been the surprise team in the NFL, and I think they'll whip out the broom at Lambeau.
  • Broncos vs. Chiefs. GREAT GOOGLY MOOGLY!!! Normally, if this was December, I'd pick the Chefs. Take yer pick.
  • Bills vs. Dolphins. Ha. Ha. Ha. Bills.
  • Rams vs. Saints. Saints, easily.
  • Browns vs. Steelers. You know, the Browns have pulled off some surprising wins. I bet they score the upset over Pittsburgh.
  • Jaguars vs. Titans. What, Vince Young is back! Time to invoke Madden Curse again!! Titans still win.
  • Eagles vs. Redskins. These two teams are practically ignored now. Eagles win a pointless game.
  • Bengals vs. Ravens. Apparently, the ground can cover #85. Ravens win.
  • Lions vs. Cardinals. Holy shit, Jon Kitna's prediction of a ten win season is still alive. The Lions should win.
  • Cowboys vs. Giants. Oooh, another massively-hyped game that nobody outside of Texas or New York will care about. Eli and the Giants in an upset.
  • Bears vs. Raiders. Shits and Giggles Pick: the Raiders.
  • WELL, THAT KIND OF TAKES THE SHINE OUT OF SUNDAY NIGHT'S MATCHUP: Colts vs. Chargers. The Chargers were made bitches of Adrian Peterson. Peyton will make sure that continues. The Colts, big.
  • MONDAY NIGHT SHITE: 49ers vs. Seahawks. Yawn. Take yer pick.
