Denzel Washington Faces Off Against Reggie Jackson in Yankees Trivia on 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Oct 29th 2010 3:43AM
Denzel Washington, 'The Tonight Show'You never know what might be revealed during a fun late-night segment. With Reggie Jackson and Denzel Washington as guests on 'The Tonight Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM on NBC), Jay Leno set up a trivia challenge between the two superstars about the New York Yankees. Washington is a huge fan, and Jackson is a legendary Yankee.

What he got instead was a loot at how incredibly intense and competitive Washington gets when in a competition. We'd hate to sit across from the table from him in Scrabble, and not just because he knew how many "Ts" were in Andy Pettitte's name.

Washington was pacing around the stage, and mashing his button even before Leno could finish his questions. At one point, he even assumed the wrong question, hitting his buzzer before Leno had even finished asking it.n for it!

Martha Stewart on Helping NY Yankee Curtis Granderson (VIDEO)

Martha StewartEven baseball players can use the help of the domestic diva known as Martha Stewart.

While cooking with Rachel Maddow on 'Martha Stewart' (weekdays, syndicated), Stewart confirmed her previously tweeted statement about fixing Curtis Granderson's batting gloves at last night's game.

"Derek stopped to talk to me on his way to bat and so did A-Rod," Stewart said. "And one of the newest Yankees, Curtis Granderson -- he's really cute ... Curtis was struggling with his Velcro gloves, his batting gloves, and so he was standing right at the wall and I said 'Oh Curtis, I'll do that.' He let me fix his gloves, it was so cute!"

Remember when there were reruns against the World Series?

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 28th 2009 5:01PM
A-Rod working out before World Series Game 1 at Yankee Stadium
I have to admit that, when the Yankees are in the playoffs, most of my regular TV watching gets obliterated. Thankfully, DVRs and online TV sites (and, in the mid-'90s, VCRs) help me catch up. For instance, even though I have to review Cougar Town, I'll likely won't watch it until tomorrow morning, on either ABC.com or Hulu. Why? World Series game one, of course. Nothing, not even the Yankees being behind 22-0, is going to tear me away from FOX at 9:30, when I should be watching Cougar Town on ABC.

Which leads me to something that I've been wondering lately: Didn't networks used to program more reruns against the World Series? Tonight, NBC has a lineup of new episodes, as does ABC (except for Charlie Brown in Hank's slot, for understandable reasons). Tomorrow, all three of FOX's competitors have new episodes.

FOX shows drunk guy in Angels waterfall

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 23rd 2009 4:27PM
I thought it was a rule that TV stations covering sporting events (at least in baseball) didn't show drunks, streakers, and other morons who jump on the playing field in the middle of a game? Last night FOX happily showed a guy at the Yankees/Angels game who somehow got into the waterfall area of the outfield and went for a swim. Well, he laid down in the water.

I think we can assume the guy got at least one beer from the concession stand.

Six things that annoy me about the baseball playoffs

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 21st 2009 6:02PM
Kate Hudson watching A-Rod at the Yankees-Angels ALCS Game 3No, this is not going to be another post about the shoddy umpiring or spittle analysis or any of the other on-field matters that have been going on in baseball since the playoffs began. No, we're on a TV blog, so I'm going to just talk about the things that have annoyed me about FOX's and TBS's coverage of the ALCS and the NLCS. In no particular order:

1. The Fidelity-sponsored Fox Trak. The pitching tracker, which shows if a pitch actually hit the strike zone or not, has been around for years. But, the flight of the ball has been to this point represented by a red streak and a dot. Now that Fidelity Investments is sponsoring the tracker, the red streak/dot combo has been replaced by a green streak/green arrow combo that mimics Fidelity's "stay on the line" series of ads. What financial guidance has to do with balls and strikes, I'll never know.

Baseball called on account of Yom Kippur

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 3rd 2009 8:33AM
The Passion of the JewYes, it's true. The Jews do control the media. Okay, maybe not in the purest sense of the word, but they exhibit enough influence on the medium to move the time of the Yankees versus Red Sox game from 8 PM to 1 in the afternoon on September 27. This was done to accommodate the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement.

Considering that Rep. Anthony Weiner, the man who wrote the letter to the Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig, is a Congressman from New York, I can see an ulterior motive in his suggestion of the move. Undoubtedly the Congressman didn't want to miss a second of his favorite team against their arch rivals (and I doubt he's a Red Sox fan).

A serious bullet has been dodged. This conflict could have led to potential civil war within many Jewish households on the East Coast. Thank you for your consideration Congressman, and thank you MLB.

George Steinbrenner gets called on a foul

by Brad Trechak, posted Aug 29th 2009 12:29PM
YES NetworkI'm not sure who will rejoice at this news more: Yankees or Mets fans. Long-time Yankees owner George Steinbrenner has been sued by a former colleague for breach of agreement regarding the YES Network. This is another in a long line of broken and burned bodies left in Steinbrenner's wake.

Accusing Steinbrenner of lying is a bit like accusing the the Pope of being Catholic. Just ask Billy Martin, Dave Winfield, Reggie Jackson, etc., etc., etc. I'd be more surprised if he told the truth. Simply on the basis of who George Steinbrenner is and how he behaves, I'm pretty sure that Robert Gutkowski is justified in his claim.

Mind you, Steinbrenner is pushing 80. He's not quite the powerhouse he used to be. If you want to sue him, now's the time (as opposed to even 10 years ago). Perhaps they should get Larry David (who did the Steinbrenner impression back on Seinfeld) to fill in for him at the trial.

Phil Rizzuto for The Money Store

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 14th 2007 7:01PM
Phil Rizzuto for the Money StoreToday's a sad day for any Yankee fan over the age of 30 or so, as Phil Rizzuto, a Hall of Fame shortstop for the team during the '40s and '50s, died today at 89. Of course, most Yankee fans remember "The Scooter" as a broadcaster; he did play-by-play on TV and radio from 1956 to 1996.

During that time, fans can fondly tell you chapter and and verse about how unconventional he was; he'd send out birthday wishes in the hopes that the Yanks would get a hit, he often talked about the great Italian meal he ate the night before with his wife Cora, and he'd joke around with his various broadcast partners, usually laughing and saying "you huckleberry!"

What I'm watching this summer: Joel's list

by Joel Keller, posted Jun 19th 2007 10:19AM
It's Always Sunny in PhiladelphiaI think I'm the last Squadder to put out one of these lists, and there's a good reason for that. After the crush of the season finales and upfronts in May, I was happy to not be a regular watcher of anything in particular, except for Yankee games, so there seemed to be nothing for me to write about.

But when I really thought about it, that's not even close to being true. Despite the fact that it's summer, there's more than enough quality programming that I'm sure I'll get sucked into some weekly habits at some point. So, after the jump, here's what I plan on watching:

Seinfeld: The Letter

by Joel Keller, posted Aug 30th 2006 8:37PM
Seinfeld: The Letter(S03E20) I know this episode was produced over fourteen years ago, but it was still hard for me to recognize Catherine Keener in this episode. I'm usually pretty good at recognizing younger versions of now well-known actors, but even when I watched this episode the other day, I was surprised when the "Notes on Nothing" mentioned that Nina, Jerry's jealous artist girlfriend, was played by Keener. Maybe it was because she was younger, or it could have been her hair or something. Either way, she did a great job in this episode, foreshadowing how she'd do in movies like Being John Malkovich and The 40 Year Old Virgin.

Anyway, if you're a fan of Neil Simon, you probably loved that episode. If not, then it was still pretty damned good.
