Why is ABC Bringing Back Roseanne?

Am I taking crazy pills or is ABC actually bringing Roseanne back to television? Who was clamoring for more Roseanne Barr? I just assumed her character and John Goodman’s would have both succumbed to heart disease by 2018 but apparently, they are alive and well. I remember watching Roseanne as a kid and thinking it ...

Wet the Beak: The Final Countdown.

Que the Music. Cotton Bowl: I covered this game but the line has moved considerably. The line in the Cotton Bowl has now moved heavily towards Ohio State, I was actually expecting this, but not to this degree, it has gone to as high as -9.5 points. That really worries me now, is it public ...

Tiny Wet the Beak: Thursday + Friday Bowl Picks

Another addition of “Wet the Beak” My apologies for not getting picks in for the games on Wednesday. Military Bowl: Virgina vs Navy I don’t have a solid play on this game. It’s supposed to be cold, it’s the Military Bowl, I would think that favors Navy. Virgina opened as the favorite but it’s been ...

A-Train Eats: Sister’s Stew, A Christmas Tradition is Born.

Today we have a very special edition of my favorite segment: A-Train Eats. I plan to make a recipe directly out of the text of A Dance with Dragons the 5th novel of George R.R. Martin’s epic A Song of Ice and Fire.  Throughout A Song of Ice and Fire Martin gives his reader’s detailed descriptions of ...

RIP to The Legendary Dick Enberg & WTB Bowl Season Part II.

Before we get into this week’s “Wet the Beak” I need to pay tribute to the great Dick Enberg who passed away yesterday at the age of 82. There are very few voices more recognizable to the sports fan of the last 40+ years than Dick Engberg’s. If you were a sports fan then at ...

The Loser Bulls Have Won 6 Consecutive Games.

The Bulls looked like the biggest bunch of losers all year. When the #1 Pick is going to be Marvin Bagley III, losing might not be the worst thing. The Bulls were 3-20 and looked god-awful along the way. As a fan, I’m thinking that losing is the best thing possible, 3-20 is a success. I ...

LaVar Ball Ships his Kids off to Lithuania.

LiAngelo and LaMelo Ball have both signed with the Lithuanian basketball club Vytautas. Supposedly reporting to the club in early January. So my first reaction was that LaVarr Ball is insane, and this is going to ruin his kid’s lives. Yet the more I think about it, the more I start to think that it’s ...

Books for Dudes 2: The Last Good Kiss by James Crumley.

Welcome to the second edition of books for dudes. Ladies, you are by no means excluded from reading these either. If you guys recall the first edition of Books for Dudes I recommended City of Thieves by David Benioff. That was historical fiction, this time we delve into the world of the hard-boiled private-eye. With James Crumley’s ...

Army vs Navy in the Snow, a Fitting End to the Regular Season. Bonus: ATrain’s College Football Awards.

I’m watching this Army-Navy matchup as I write this. It’s the only game on today, and it marks the end of the regular season of college football. I don’t think I’ve witnessed a single pass play yet. Army-Navy is already a run-heavy matchup but if you throw in the falling snow it becomes true trench warfare. ...
