Unbelievable. We are currently witnessing the most talented group of kids the world has ever seen. Excuse me while I change that statement. We are currently witnessed the most talented group of people the world has ever seen. These kids never cease to amaze me. They can do everything and then some. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to have my boy James Corden leading the group and providing the electricity.
We all knew Millie Bobby Brown had BARS, but now we know that the boys could be bigger than the NSYNC. I truly do think this is the best cast in television and a lot of it has to do with the Fab Five Kids. Whoever was the casting director for Stranger Things deserves a billion dollars. Thank you for bringing these kids into my life. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch the Snowball dance for the 100th time.
Here’s the full segment from Corden.

The opening Sunday concluded with a brutal Giants-Cowboys game. I was very frustrated at the ridiculous play calls. Early on the Giants were conservative. You could make a case for that. Still close. Time left. Had trouble protecting Eli. One of my real pet peeves is a short pass when you have third and long. At 19-3 in the late stages, there were more short passes from the Giants. Cris Collinsworth was also frustrated. He talked about how they needed to throw a Hail Mary, get an onside kick, and score again. Plus two conversions. They continued to dump it off short. A stunned Collinsworth first stated that the short pass would not get it done, and after another dump off he gave up and confessed to not knowing what they were doing
Jon Gruden likes to complain. He is a grumpy old man. So am I. Therefore, I’m cool with this. Usually he is complaining about penalties and confusing rules. One of his rants this year was about moving the extra point back. Actually, he referred to it more than once. One time stood out though. Basically he said that people find missed extra points exciting. I have totally been in this corner, and point to the Pats-Broncos AFC Championship game that ended 20-18. New England missed an extra point and trailed 20-12 instead of by seven when driving late. I complained that moving extra points back resulted in a missed kick, and that ultimately prevented us from seeing an overtime classic.
Then we have Tony Romo. I can’t stand him. First of all, he does not shut up. You would think somebody could whisper in his ear (or smack him in the head) and tell this fool to let the game breathe. Luckily I was out Thursday and watched the game without sound. Listening to him urging on Aaron Rodgers was tough to take when Green Bay rallied against the Bengals last month. He’ll spike the ball. Don’t worry about it. Not to mention talking about where he could have or should’ve gone with a pass. Yeah, throw it completely across the field. That always worked well in your career. Romo asked Jim Nantz to go out on a limb and predict whether or not Green Bay’s overtime field goal would be successful. Nantz, who usually kisses Tony’s ass, confessed that it was from just 27 yards out. Jim liked the chances of this one. He correctly predicted it. Of course predicting plays has been Romo’s signature trait so far. When Nantz asked how he knew what was coming after one play, Tony arrogantly stated that he has been around football for many years. Oh, you’re the one. Simms and Aikman are newcomers.
I wonder what Phil thinks of his work. It seems a little awkward when the studio breaks in with an update and throws it back to Jim. Phil was often knocked on social media, but he obviously knew the game. Simms put in 19 years at CBS, and was on NBC’s number one team before that. Even Collinsworth has mentioned Romo and seems bothered by him. I’m sure Romo will improve, and I’ll probably get used to his annoying behavior at some point. For now, I’m glad that I will be spending Thursdays out at a bar not listening to Tony’s commentary.
No way no way no way no way no way. I refuse to believe this. Awhile back, I wrote about how 3 contestants spun $1 on the Price is Right. Today, there were *LeBron voice* Not one. Not two. Not three. Not four. BUT FIVE $1 spins. Ok, I’m skeptical already, but then I found out that they were all in a row. There’s a 0% chance that could happen. You probably have a better chance at making the NFL than spinning $1 five times in a row. It just doesn’t happen.
It’s a sad day for me because I think I’m going full heel on The Price Is Right. I still love Plinko and the Showcase Showdowns is where it is at, but the Big Wheel is no longer a favorite of mine after today. I shed a tear for every sick kid from school who now has to watch the Price Is Right knowing that the Big Wheel is rigged.
Bob would never let this happen.
