What are the best games in NFL Divisional Playoff history?


Last night’s Cardinals-Packers Divisional game was a classic, perhaps made even moreso because the teams met a few weeks ago and the game was a total rout. (The same team did win both times, though.) That happens a lot in… Continue Reading


Here’s a fun party game: Which celebrity couple would you have a threesome with?

Of course, BuzzFeed has a quiz on this. Here’s my intro story for this: probably in about 2008 or so, I was doing one of those unwise ‘let’s-drink-all-day’ Saturdays in NYC, and by about 8pm, my core friends were totally… Continue Reading


Loved Trainwreck, but …

Saw it on Friday night, when it came out. I honestly think the last movie I saw on the day it came out was one of the Twilight movies, and that was done somewhat ironically. Fun story from that movie,… Continue Reading


It took me until 2015 to see Point Break, but damn it’s a great movie

Adam Sandler

On Saturday night, I couldn’t sleep around midnight — so I went and watched Blended on HBOGo. If you’re unfamiliar with what that is, it’s an Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore movie (I believe the third one, after The Wedding Singer and… Continue Reading


HBO’s Girls Season 4 is a fucking train wreck

HBO Girls Season 4

I wrote a lot about HBO’s Girls last year (Season 3), but haven’t written a lot about it this year (hence, Season 4), except to say that Broad City is a much-better show nowadays. (In another way, they almost can’t be… Continue Reading


RIP Sam Simon, part-shaper of many childhoods

Aside from maybe my parents, my wife, some of my friends, and the broader notion of “society,” I don’t think there’s anything that had a bigger effect on my upbringing than The Simpsons. I think a show like Breaking Bad… Continue Reading
