I might actually like summer TV more

Went to fun BBQ yesterday at lastcatastrophe's place. I got to see fightgravity, there was good food and swimming and chocolate cream pie made from scratch. *weeps* She even sent me home with some and Alex, Tessa and Chip all enjoyed some.

I'm watching an episode of Warehouse 13 that's about the "horn of Jericho", has a rocket ship that was launched into space... in 1893 and laser guns, yet the thing that makes me scoff in disbelief is that there are 40,000 people at a Pirates game :P

I recently finished S2 of The Vampire Diaries and it's... good. I feel really weird saying that because it is quite teen angsty, but it's also got adults characters who are there to do more than just ground the teen protagonists, people actually die, the stakes (har har) are high and there's always some crisis or other propelling the story along. It's just weird because it's on the CW, which, okay, is the result of a merger with the WB that launched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but I mostly associate with 90210, which is essentially SVU set at a high school.

Really appreciating Eureka, maybe because it's the last season. :/ Colin Ferguson just has such good comic timing and delivery. I hope he (and Jo and Zane) get roles in other stuff soon.

Right? I was like, "On the other hand, I'm pretty sure no one actually cares."

Their average attendance is apparently 20k. :P

I love when TV shows and the like try to casually throw in some sports detail like that about real teams (esp. baseball, since it's the only sport I'm overly familiar with). They almost always make it obvious that they have no idea how the sport/the fans/the league actually work and it's hilarious. Seriously, guys, just invent a couple team names. It's okay. You're allowed.

The hockey ones make me laugh. It's always like Slapshot. I'm kind of surprised that the Giants haven't been in any of the TV shows I watch actually, given that there's a lot of shows set in SF.

Sure they have. I've seen several of them in that new show about a baseball team that used to be really good, and then they won the World Series and apparently took a team vote to fail as much as possible after that. Have you seen that one?

I'm kind of amazed that they took that long to fail. I guess it's because the rest of the division was failing harder.

LIKE WHEN ZITO WAS ON JAG AND KILLED THAT GUY WITH HIS FASTBALL?

No, I do not intend to ever stop laughing my ass off about that.

omg WHAT

I have never heard of this. It is amazing.

(Icon chosen to reflect the sheer randomness of that as a storyline.)

I may need to download that episode just because.
