Fans of Community and Joel McHale and Donald Glover and Gillian Jacobs and Alison Brie and Chevy Chase and Danny Pudi and Ken Jeong and Yvette Nicole Brown are The Greendale Human Beings!
Good challenge but you may have noticed Jason Ritter was mentioned only but once. False. (Besides the cute, crush, adorable, hatred ones) They are all Jason Ritter.

"Will you guys let me know if this ever airs?" - Michael Scott
Jim's good-bye is one of the most emotional moments in Office history. But yet he was wrong. Jim said that Michael was "the best boss he ever had." False. "Michael is the best boss any of us have ever had. Sure maybe he gave the 'Hottest in the Office' award to Ryan or kiss Oscar. Maybe he did scream at Toby countless times. Maybe he called Kevin fat excessively. Maybe he should never have stepped foot in the warehouse or dated Jan or became friends with Todd Packer or maybe just plain not do anything he ever did. But what makes him perfect is that he was Michael. There was never a character on television quite like him.
When Steve Carrell announced he'd be exiting Dunder Mifflin last June, I figured they'd be better off without him. My oh my how wrong I was. The final episode was just suitable enough for Michael Scott. Emotional but with a lot of 'Michael' humor. Like when he gave the rag doll to Oscar or thought that he and Angela would sometime have sex, but in the characters he invested the most in emotionally (Jim, Pam, Dwight, Ryan, Stanley, and Creed. Maybe even Toby if you cant his hatred as an emotion) came the best moments.
Let's start with Toby, as we all know Michael for some reason just hates Toby. But he's worked with him for 9,986,000 minutes. Toby says "Hey you should look up my brother, Rory Flenderson. He lives in Boulder, Colorado. (Rory is just as lame as Toby.) To which Michael says, "yeah, yeah, sure."
Michael didn't have a lot of time left in the day so he started tripling up workers. To Creed he says "dont be afraid of dying." When Michael is looking back at where he has worked for 19 years, looking at his 'family,' Creed says "Later boss," raising the World's Best Boss coffee mug. That's right Creed stole it. Michael invested in Creed because he almost fired him but kept him on. A rare act of kindness from Mike.
It has been suggested that Stanley has worked at Dunder Mifflin just as long as Michael. Michael gives him felt and I don't know why, but the better moment of Stanley and Michael is in one of Michael's perfectly appropriate meetings. "Conference Room. Five seconds." Stanley does not like the meetings and when Michael introduces Ping for the final time, that's when Stanley has had enough and exits a Michael Scott meeting. For the last time.
Mike has had a strange obsession with Ryan since the first day he became a Temp at The Office. Their final moment was brief as Michael passes on his neon sign to Ryan. "This is totally unnecessary." Wuphf.
"I've given up expecting Michael to do the right thing. Or the decent thing. Or even the comprehensible thing." Dwight, who has idolized Michael for the longest time has also had it up to here with him and his ignorance. But in Michael's letter of recommendation for Dwight, Mr. Schrute even gets teary-eyed. "The dictionary defines 'superlative' as 'of the highest kind, quality, or order, surpassing all else or others; supreme.' I definite it as Dwight Schrute. As a sales executive, as a leader, as a man, and as a friend, he is of the highest kind, quality, and order; supreme. Lots more like that. Really repetitive." To which Dwight chokes up. Then, they play paintball.
Michael questions leaving all his friends and co-workers but he calls Holly and her voice makes all the difference.
"What a great boss, you turned out to be." And we've gotten to Jim. You've seen this so there won't be too much details. But Jim is saving the goodbye between them for 'lunch' tomorrow despite Scott is leaving that day. My god Jim. Remember back when Michael encouraged Jim to never give up with Pam. "Don't give up. Don't ever give up." Michael has had his moments.
Finally we've reached Pam. Good ol' Pam who put up with Michael and took notes for Michael and did EVERYTHING for Michael. Pam who actually invited Michael to the wedding. Pam who was driven to the hospital by Michael. Pam who told Michael there was still hope for Holly. Pam who had a painting bought by Michael when no one else would go. Pam who joined the Michael Scott Paper Company and got promoted to saleswoman by who else but, Michael. Pam went to see The King's Speech so it looked as if all was bleak for a goodbye between the two. Just as Michael leaves though, Pam arrives. Michael gets to the airport and takes his microphone of. He walks away from the camera for seemingly the last time. But all of a sudden, Pam comes speeding through security and stops Michael. The two hug and then Michael says something. They hug again and that's when Michael walks away. Pam was crying and said that Michael was just happy to see Holly soon. She watches his plane take off and fly out of sight. Goodbye Michael.
But if you notice when Michael was taking off his microphone he mouthed something. He said "I've been waiting so long to get this off my body." He takes off the microphone and so fittingly and perfect for this one moment he mouths; "That's what she said."
See ya on the flippity-flip. Oh yeah Casey got eliminated too. :( not a good night.

I've had a good look at the teams so I'm ready to pick my teams. I warn you I HATE Chicago and San Antonio but I'm not biased. You must believe me, I picked Memphis and New Orleans before the series' started. I'm a die-hard Celtics and Thunder and Magic fan, but I did pick them. I know Boston is already in but I did pick them.
I think OKC outlasts Memphis because you never know they might just have fluked against the Spurs. Dallas and Portland haven't been consistent and neither have dominated so I think Chris Paul will lead his Hornets to the West Finals. Chicago is too young without enough experience. Dwight Howard might just carry the entire city of Orlando (Stan Van, Disney, and all) on his back to the East Finals for the third straight year. Miami's Big Three is strong and have finally proven themselves. I think Boston's run ends and they finally realize they're just, well, old. OKC has the youth and energy to make it to the NBA Finals and win it all over Miami who will win it next year I believe.
What does everyone else think?

Drew Carey was molested as a child and his dad also died. He attempted suicide twice and now look at him! Sure he's not the funniest but he's got the Price is Right and he's lost a lot of weight.

Aziz Ansari. Tom Haverford. Who let's quit the waiting:
“Zerts are what I call desserts. Tray-trays are entrees. I call sandwiches sammies, sandoozles, or Adam Sandlers. Air conditioners are cool-blasterz, with a z. I don’t know where that came from. I call cakes big ol’ cookies. I call noodles long-ass rice. Fried chicken is fri-fri chicky-chick. Chicken parm is chicky chicky parm parm. Chicken cacciatore? Chicky catch. I call eggs pre-birds, or future birds. Root beer is super water. Tortillas are bean blankies. And I call forks … Food rakes.”
God yes. Prompting another list?

I would not marry any celebrity right here, right now, as I am under-age. If it would be for money than hello J.K. Rowling. But then it'd be a sham. Sooo....no one!

Nerve.com ranked Michael Scott as the funniest character from The Office. Really? I do not even somewhat agree with this. Sure I may miss him when he's gone but Andy, Dwight, Stanley, Jim, they're all funnier than him. Jim was number four. :P
Thursday, April 21, 2011
Diedrich Bader of 'Outsourced' fame. He plays Charlie. Outsourced is okay, but really? This guy's cool.
Wednesday, April 20, 2011
Couldn't they just say dead? Oh well, I choose Elvis, he's pretty cool. I can't think of too many dead people on the spot, uh huh. He told me that he was grateful and said, quote on quote, "thank you, thank you very much." But he's dead! He didn't tell me! :O

Tim Tebow and Dwight Howard are the main people featured in the two ads. Tebow shows off the Jockey Staycool T-Shirt and Dwight for the 2011 NBA Playoffs. Dwight's was some-what funny and Tebow's is one of the first commercials that has actually made me consider looking into the shirts or product.

Now I only do these lists every now and again. They take up a lot of space so I can't do them everyday. But in all seriousness now I have been mulling over this for a long time. I know the decade ended 467 days ago but I have been making lists, cuts, putting them in order, finding moments, thinking of it, and finding the clips and now finally putting them on the blog. Sure there have been some days I didn't do anything but I still tried to get it done as soon as possible. About time right? Well, with no further ado, here is the top 100 sports most memorable moment of the decade (January 1st, 2000 - December 31st, 2009)
Steve Nash collides with Tony Parker and his nose bleeds. He gets it bandaged up and gets back out to play.
Curlin. Arguably the best horse of the decade.
Greg Oden is drafted number one overall by Portland in 2007. Biggest bust ever.
The last 9 minutes of the UNC-Illinois 2005 NCAA Basketball Championship game. Roy Williams gets crushed in a hug.
Tommy Lasorda got hit with a bat during the all-star game! Priceless!
Rajon Rondo got clotheslined by Marvin Williams. That is an awful foul.
This kid faints while participating in a Spelling Bee. He even gets back up and spells the word right.
Scary scene here when Serena Williams threatens the line judge.
Gramatica goes down. Celebrating.
Terrell Owens catches a touchdown and celebrates by pouring popcorn all over his face. Get your popcorn ready!
A-Rod's 500th home run.
V-Tek owns A-Rod. A-Rod's face: come at me bro! Coco's fight was good too.
A few highlights of Reggie Bush's Heisman winning season.
Ron Artest attacks a fan.
Robert Horry isn't trusted by his teammates until by accident the ball comes out his way, and he nails it.
Magglio Ordonez walks off for the Tigers. How about the swing?
The Saints finally return to the Superdome after Hurricane Katrina.
David Beckham's first goals of his MLS career.
Tim Tebow throws a jump pass for a touchdown in the '08 championship which led to a Gators win.
Howz about this catch by Freeman in November of 2000.
Daisuke's first matchup against Ichiro.
The Mitchell Report is released changing baseball forever.
Marvin Harrison's amazing catch against New England in 2006.
Lennox Lewis K.O.'s Mike Tyson. Amazing knockout. One punch and he's down.
Danica Patrick wins her first race in the IndyCar series at Twin Ring Motegi in Japan.
Dwyane Wade throws down a reverse slam against the Celtics. One word. Wow.
Just one of LeBron's many chalk claps before the game.
Owens once again showboats but this time Teague has had enough.
Roger Clemens gets mad for no reason and takes it out on Mike Piazza.
The Mavericks are the one seed and the Warriors are the eighth seed. Warriors upset Mavs!
Marion Jones' apology for her PEDs in the Olympics. Disappointing moment for sports but memorable nonetheless.
Kentucky gets over-confident and celebrates but LSU isn't done and they win! Bluegrass Miracle!
Paul Pierce goes down but eventually comes back and knocks down a four-point play.
One of the many tributes to Roger Federer's record-breaking grand slam title.
Bugs are all over the Yankees. Especially Chamberlain.
Kobe with the game winner. He goes on to win 4 championships.
A softball player's career is most likely ended as she messes up her ankle rounding first on a home run. Two players on the other team help her around the bases to score her home run.
Pedroia leads of the 2007 World Series with a home run. This was his rookie season.
LaDainian Tomlinson sets the record for rushing. That, sadly, was his peak.
Vince Young rushes into the end zone with the Rose Bowl winning touchdown. Sadly that was also his peak.
Bonds breaks Aaron's record. 756* asterisk because of the steroids.
Asante Samuel picks off McNabb to win Super Bowl. The run is incredible!
I was going to post a video of Dale Earndhart's Daytona crash but it'd be too horrible. If you'd like to see it look it up but I just cannot show that.
Jeter flips and gets the out at home. Wow.
Tim Donaghy's in deep waters.
Just when you think JD is done. Boom. Grand slam. Sox come back like in '04.
Candace Parker gets up and dunks. More hops than a case of Miller Lite.
Favre retires. Very tearful but as we know he'll come back. Twice.
Kevin Harvick and Mark Martin! Side by Side for the win!
A heartwarming story. Jon Lester comes back from cancer. And he throws a no-hitter.
Endy Chavez makes what just might be the greatest catch of the decade.
Florida wins the college basketball and football titles in the same year.
Stephen Curry leads to an upset in which Davidson shocks Georgetown. Curry is awesome.
Tony Romo botches the snap. He is now mocked by many for every mistake he makes.
Manny being Manny. Well, enjoy!
The burnout when Kyle Busch swept the Bristol series.
Carter dunks over Weis in an Olympic game. Mind you Weis is over seven feet tall and Vince is under. We've seen players jump over others in a contest but never in a game!
Just a dirty kick by Twellman.
Can't forget about the Patriots undefeated regular season right? We all know how it ended though.
Papelbon and Youkilis dance after a big win. Pretty good moves. Pap's celebration after they won the World Series didn't make the cut though. He is crazy and dialed in occasionally though.
Vick's return after his shameful dog fighting scandal. I figured I should focus on the redemption.
This was the very beginning of UCONN's women 2009 undefeated run. That's right they topped New England (Patriots that is because UCONN is in New England)
After the tragedy of 9/11, George Bush shows the country that it's going to be okay.
Kevin Garnett's famous interview after the Celtics won it all in '08. Anything's possible!
Steve Bartman ruins the Cubs chances. Can't help but feel bad for the guy.
Playoffs?! 'Nuff said.
Sox were down 7-0 in the seventh . Well, they came back. Gives me goosebumps everytime.
Jimmie Johnson wins four NSCS championships in a row.
Tiger wins the US Open on one leg. How about that for tough?
Devastating for Tennessee. So close. They haven't been the same since.
It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Dwight!
One of Brett Favre's better moments. He breaks the yards record and is very calm about it. No man on his shoulders or hi-fiving the ref.
Dave Roberts with the steal. If he's out, there's no broken curse.
Shaq with the slam! Wowza!
Kobe goes for 81! For a while there I thought the Raptors would win it. Oh and yeah another Lakers clip.
The Music City Miracle. The first major play involving a lateral. January 8, 2000. Probably the first big play of the decade.
Luis Gonzalez sends up a small hit that drops into shallow center field. I just love that play.
Mickelson's leap says it all.
Vince Carter's 2000 Dunk Contest. It's over! It's over!
Pretty unbelievable right? But it's true, Lance Armstrong won seven Tour de France's in a row!
Ovechkin. Some comments on the video said, "I could do better." I can't believe someone would write that. This play is the best hockey play. Ever.
How fast is this guy? Usain BOLT!
It's just incredible how Crabtree could stay in-bounds with two defenders on him.
Doesn't show all the homers but some. Hamilton blasted 28 in the first round, a record. This was after he recovered from an extreme drug and alcohol addiction.
Santonio Holmes stays in bounds some how. Some how he did it. I was so happy when Fitzgerald scored on the touchdown before that. Sigh. Still a good play though.
Tom Brady shows many fans that there is a Tuck Rule. I loved this game. What a Snow Bowl.
Great hustle play from Jeter. Some lucky fans there too.
Adam Vinatieri kicks one of his many game-winning field goals. Patriots upset Rams!
Celtics come back from 24! Rondo, House, Allen, Garnett, and Pierce are the men. It ain't over 'til it's over.
Now I support the Magic, but this is an incredible play from LeBron.
I know what you're thinking. If Lochte and Phelps are here what about the rest? Well you'll see. As we know Phelps went on to go 8 for 8. This is just a great race. Motivational too.
Derek Fisher. What a shot. Threw it up and barely got it. They call him Mr. Clutch.
Curt Schilling with the bloody sock. I had one of these the other day. Remember: Sox down 3 games to zero. They won the series and won it all, breaking the 86 year curse.
Two great plays from the Fiesta Bowl. Tricks from Boise State. These plays are incredible. Lateral and Statue of Liberty. Then the game-winning touchdown maker proposed. Perfect.
I must admit it, a good play. Although I hated it because it ruined New England's perfect season, how do you stick a ball to your helmet?
Derrick Rose couldn't come through. So Mario Chalmers does instead. I remember waking up and seeing this. I picked Memphis to win it all. Unbelievable.
You will never see any player play as hard as I will play the rest of the season. This speech led to the Gators' second championship in three years. Tebow just knew what he had to do. I almost even put this at number one. The speech is now on a plaque at the University of Florida. Goosebumps baby.
Oh my god. Tiger Woods just chips it and it rolls, rolls, rolls, stops--and drops in. Greatest golf shot ever. My oh my!
That's right Phelps narrowly --and I mean narrowly-- beats out Cavic. It has to be the number one play of the decade. Even his mom thought he lost! I couldn't even believe it!
Well it was a great decade highlighted by Tim Tebow, Tiger Woods, Michael Phelps, Kobe Bryant, Vince Carter, and David Ortiz. Many plays came from 2008! What a post, huh?

A new commercial from New Era debuted during NESN. Baldwin roots for the Yankees and Krasinski roots for the Red Sox. Seems like it was NBC based so maybe they might've thrown Levi and Ritter in there. Haha no I'm just kidding it's perfect the way it is.
Thursday, April 7, 2011
That's right after a month of basketball I have finally found my DFTBA champion! It is Team NBC! Coached by Alec Baldwin they went 6-0 in route to their first championship, winning by 3 in the finals. Their point guard was Jason Ritter and their center was Zachary Levi. Congratulations to them but I want to let you know that the teams in are my sixty-four favorite things. But then it all goes down to basketball skill. Upsets everywhere! The 12 seed won it all.

Phoebe's fiancée, Mike, has his brothers as groomsmen. Chandler and Ross want to be in the wedding:
Chandler: "Oh no! This is like my figure skating team all over again. I mean synchronized swimming. I mean balance beam! [looks at Ross] Help me out here!
Haha oh the life of Chandler.

TVLine has published a list of shows and their renewal status. Now, if you follow my blog you get a good gist of what I like so that just might be the only shows I post! Search for you favorite here, if not click on the link I posted earlier. By the way, If I don't post a show that you know I like that means it got renewed! Yay!
Show That Must Be Renewed and Their Renewal Status:
Better With You (It Could Go Either Way)
Desperate Housewives (A Sure Thing)
Rules of Engagement (Could Go Either Way)
Hawaii Five-O (A Safe Bet)
Chuck (Could Go Either Way)
The Event (A Long-Shot)
I Can Take 'Em Or Leave 'Em:
Mr. Sunshine (Could Go Either Way)
No Ordinary Family (A Long-Shot)
Mad Love (Too Early To Tell)
$#*! My Dad Says (A Safe Bet)
American Idol (A Sure Thing)
Bob's Burgers (Could Go Either Way)
Human Target (Could Go Either Way)
Lie to Me (Could Go Either Way)
Outsourced (Could Go Either Way)
I'm obviously not going to write about the shows I don't like because, really, who cares?!
Anyway I hope all of the shows I listed, get renewed. Some (No Ordinary Family, Outsourced, -*sigh* I must admit it- The Event) probably won't return. But wouldn't it just be extraordinary? I mean, I love all these shows including some that have already been renewed. For some reason, when my dad said Bob's Burgers could go either way, I got goose bumps! Goose bumps for Bob's Burgers! Probably the weirdest show on TV today! I just think all four major networks got it right. All these shows coincide with each other show well, I don't want any to leave. It's too perfect. None should get cancelled but some probably will. I mean who really wants to say good-bye to Sean Walker, or Casey, or Adam, or Chuck Bartowski, or Gupta and Charlie or Jackie Earle Haley's guy on Human Target, or Loker, or Gene and Louise, or Ryan Seacrest, or Ed Goodson, or New Sock guy, or JJ and George, or Roman, or Danno, or Russell, or Timmy, or Bree, or anyone? Isn't it good enough already. Dumb ratings.

UConn was unranked beginning the season. UConn was the eighth seed in the Maui Invitational- out of eight teams. UConn won the Maui Invitational Tournament. UConn was ranked number eight after beating Witchita State and Michigan State and Kentucky. UConn loses many games. UConn is ranked number nine out of sixteen teams in the Big East Tournament. UConn wins five games in as many days to win the Big East Tournament behind a few Kemba Walker buzzer-beaters. UConn is ranked number three in the NCAA Men's Tournament. UConn survived San Diego State, Arizona, and Kentucky. UConn makes the championship. I picked 'em. They've gone undefeated in ALL their tournaments behind Kemba Walker. 'Nuff said.
