Catch anything good yesterday August 11?

Yesterday was sort of a lean viewing day for this TV addict. Watched the Angels playing up in Seattle and was groaning as they fell behind 5-1 and I thought another loss. But the beauty of baseball is it is never over until it is over. The Angels staged a late innings comeback and beat the Mariners 6-5. The movie “Coyote County Loser” was not Hallmark but was similar fare with its story of two radio talk show hosts rubbing each other the wrong way then connecting. Did stay home and watch something via any means or go out?

I watched the Indians game, which was a double-perfect game through four, then the Indians had a no-hitter through six, then I watched the Cubs game. After the Reds built a 7-2 lead I asked my brother if he wanted to do an over/under bet on how many runs the aptly-named Homer Bailey would give up. He did well, but the infamous Reds bullpen, which couldn't hit the state of Texas with a fastball while standing in the middle of Texas, gave up seven in one inning. I've also been working through my Lou Grant DVDs. The next episode up is one of my favorites: where Rossi gets himself committed to a psychiatric hospital to do a story, then can't get out. Best part: when Lou asks for the medication they have Rossi doped up on.

Cricket is the sport of complete bafflement to us Americans. A funny thing I saw was a TV show in which an American kid relocated to down under and played baseball at home whacked a cricket ball a mile and the locals were dumbfounded

@JohnRoberts Haha, that's funny and there's a great skit about telling someone about cricket - how the team that is out goes in until they're all out and once a player gets out the next goes in until they're all out. It's much better than that but that's about the gist of it.
@JohnRoberts Really? If you saw the movie "Starman" where he plays an alien he kind of talks like that. I don't think his performance was Oscar worthy, but I don't vote on these things and critics and those that do have standards different from my own. The movie was entertaining and I enjoyed how it ended. Won't do a spoiler alert on you!

@JohnRoberts I watched Everyone Loves Raymond, The Andy Griffith Show and Fraiser. One channel runs Westinghouse Studio One black-and-white one hour shows that come from way back in the day and I must say the one I watched last night was really good.

There was new muder thingy on 20/20 that I liked, and I watched Penn and Teller Masters of Illusion..that was so/so. Nothing better on really since, the British Bake Off is over. Oh Yeah, and Shark Tank, that is usually pretty interesting. Some smart people in this world, and I don't mean the Sharks..but of course they are not stupid either..pretty good at hustling I would say.

The weather heated up here which is good because we are now in real summer with temps in the 80s. Bad news is that hubby is having a hard time recuperating and gets too hot even with the windows open so last night he started asking for me to put on Christmas movies. On the site that dubs them in Latvian they keep the Christmas movies mixed in all year. Tonight we continue with all of the Santa Clause movies with Tim Allen while I am slowly melting
