Curse the Seattle Seahawks’ offensive line and the team’s inability to establish a running game. Thanks to them – and several other notable underachievers, my Snow Monkeys head into tonight’s Monday night game needing a monster night from both QB Matt Schaub and RB Arian Foster to pull off an unlikely week 8 victory. At this point, it’s not looking good. Thanks-for-nothings also go out to WR’s Dez Bryant and Brandon Marshall. Also, TE Tony Moeaki. As the regulation time was ticking down in the KC game, I was cursing myself for having unwittingly started an inactive player only to realize that Moeaki WAS active – but only in the theoretical sense. I’m hitting the waiver wire hard tomorrow.
Anyone watch the premiere of AMC’s The Walking Dead? That’s a rhetorical question because, in fact, MANY did. 5.3 million viewers is pretty damn impressive and, frankly, well-deserved. Beautifully shot and wonderfully written with great performances all around. And, have to agree with #1 zombie fan Ivon Bartok – those were probably the best-looking zombies I’ve ever seen. Creepy good!
Louis Ferreira (a.k.a. Stargate: Universe’s Colonel Everett Young) swung by my office today to say hi – giving me the opportunity to throw a few more of your fan questions at him. Today’s question –
How was it to have Robert Carlyle as a director for one episode of season two?
Great answer – up until he’s interrupted by my cellphone’s Yolandi Vi$$er ringtone…
Oooh, some interesting developments abound. A tricky first step finally negotiated. Less cryptic revelations to come!
