| Movie/TV Board|| The Last Ship was renewed by TNT - adono on 7/21/14 at 12:15 pm|
It was announced that TNT is renewing a few of the series presently airing and The Last Ship is one of them. This fact is a true barometer of the slim pickings on cable this summer. Worse yet, they're calling it a "blockbuster"...that's just sad.
Last night's episode was a wasteful consumption of...

[quote]I guess it depends on what you mean by fast. Straight line speed? Bush might beat Cooks in an 80 yard sprint. I read today that Cooks posted the fastest 20 and 60 yard shuttles in the last decade. I think Cooks might be the quickest out of the 3, and that might translate to functional, game s...

After a number of bouts with high blood pressure over Sandy's adverse effects on the team's cap space and morale, I've now accepted that Mr. Exercycle will be here next season.

He played hard on and off the stage for a long time. When he and Edgar first hit the music scene, people looked at them as a circus act because of their appearance but it didn't take long to realize Johnny was a world class musician on multiple instruments.
