I can't remember the last time I paid attention to hockey. In the 70s and 80s it was really big in my home, but that's when the Boston Bruins were doing really well (same with the Celtics, but that's another story). Hockey is that "other" mainstream sport, one that you really have to be a fanatic to get into (unlike baseball and football, which even casual fans watch). And some of those fanatics turn out to be celebrities, and they're keeping blogs about the NHL playoffs.
Bones star David Boreanaz, Ed's Tom Cavanaugh, Christie Brinkley, William Fichtner from Prison Break, and Eddie Cahill from Friends share their views on the Eastern Conference teams, while The Office's Brian Baumgartner, Dancing with the Star's Willa Ford, and singer Amy Grant provide analysis of the Western Conference teams. I thought that it would be all Canadian celebs, but as far as I can find out only Cavanaugh is from our northern neighbor.

Ah, the web is such a wonderful place, isn't it? There's just so many places to find the littlest pieces of information, it's a wonder that people can get any work done... ever.
But that's what's great about my job; I and my fellow Squadders get to use our finely-honed time-wasting skills to dig up links to TV-related stories that we think you folks would like to read. Of course, we go to the same big sites that everyone else goes to: Yahoo, IMDb, TVGuide, Google News, Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, YouTube, etc. But there are other sites we like to read that have become reliable sources of information; some of them are blogs and some of them aren't. Here is a list of our favorites; just put this little gift under the Festivus pole and open when needed.
(Oh, and we were thinking of mentioning our buddy Wil Wheaton's blog... but you all are probably reading it already.)
I'm not even going to pretend to narrow down the five most influential television characters ever... I'll just give you the list of five TV characters that had the biggest effect on me. Interestingly, none of mine are from cartoons. List your Top Five in the comments.
- Ken Levine is at it again. He has two fantastic blog entries up: one is a public service to actors, what to do and not do when you're auditioning, and the other is the 379 words you can't say on television.
- Aaron Barnhart has the story behind those disturbing "To Catch A Predator" segments on Dateline.
- Over at Pop Candy, Whitney is looking for readers to be part of a podcast. Hurry, you have til 7pm today.
- EW's PopWatch blog has info from Jeff Probst about the new season of Survivor.
- Prison Break's Wade Williams is keeping a blog at TV Guide.
It was hilarious. You are not.
Case in point: Mark Feuerstein (from Good Morning, Miami) and Adam Stein launched an East Coast/West Coast rap battle with SNL'ers Andy Samburg and Chris Parnell, the geniuses behind the Lazy Sunday, aka Chronic-what?-cles of Narnia rap video.
Boys, you really shouldn't enter into a battle you cannot win. The two 'Steins created a West Coast version of the rap, called Lazy Monday (because no one in L.A. has a job). They take their bad asses to drink Macchiatos and paint pottery at a Color Me Mine store. It's not nearly as funny, or as catchy of a tune as the Narnia rap.
Nothing beats the original.

Paula is rightfully listed on Pop Candy's list of Top 100 Entertainers of 2005, and there's even an interview with her over on the site. She, of course, is very grateful for her success and hints that she plans to launch a line of kitchen tools or dishes or something in 2006.
The interview was done just before he was rushed to the hospital recently for complications from intestinal surgery, so it's a little bit out-of-date. In it, Bo tells Whitney Matheson (Pop Candy) that he's feeling fine, but is exhausted and hasn't had time to heal properly from the surgery. He also says that he's had a lot of star struck moments this year when he met people like Snoop Dogg, or band members from Audioslave and Nickelback. Bo still has a good head on his shoulders, saying that his latest album isn't going to make or break his career. He says he wants to create a respectable legacy, both in music and in his family. I just adore that man!
