Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Dodgers Bandwagon Edition

I’ll admit that my interest in the World Series has significantly waned now that my Yankees have been eliminated. But I still love baseball, so I’ve got to have some kind of rooting interest, even if I’m not committing myself to watching all of the games (I was starting to feel crappy last night, so I put myself to bed at 8:30 and I barely saw the first few innings). My dad is a Dodgers fan so I’m throwing my support their way, even though goodness knows that he takes glee in the Yankees not doing well.  He may be one of the few people on the planet that was never impressed with Derek Jeter in any capacity. But I’ll forgive that and side with the family. I’d even root for my brother’s team, the Mets, if they ever make it back to postseason baseball. 😉

I’m also rooting for whoever is most likely to steal a base and win me (and the rest of the country) a free taco. Unless it’s Jose Altuve – screw that guy.

So while I irrationally hate a guy that’s just good at his job, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s roundup.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – Overtime Edition

Today feels like it should be Friday since I’ve already logged a lot of hours in the office this week. Monday I put in a whopping 15 hours, leaving around 11 pm to return a mere eight hours later. It’s been both physically and mentally exhausting and this week feels like it is dragging on.

Luckily I got a jump start on the roundup over the weekend, so despite the long hours I still can deliver a heaping dose of pop culture goodness on time. So while I hope to see life outside the office more this week, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you might have missed.

Pop Culture Odds and Ends – October Baseball Edition

I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been a terrible baseball fan this year. I only went to Yankee Stadium once all season (though it was a double-header) and I haven’t watch many games. Usually I’m glued to the TV or listening to the games on the radio, but when you start going to bed at 8 pm on a regular basis because your life has become very overwhelming, you tend to miss a lot. Thankfully, things have improved slightly which has coincided with the Major League Baseball playoffs, so I am once again back to screaming at the TV and hoping that the Yankees continue to outperform expectations. This is the first sign that I’m starting to feel like myself again. Hopefully the Yankees don’t get eliminated tonight so this feeling continues.

So while I hope that the Cleveland Indians are doing something to anger Jobu, get yourself caught up on all the pop culture that you might have missed with this week’s roundup.
