Stuff To Tune In To And Zone Out On For June 17th
•MLB Baseball. Toronto Blue Jays at Philadelphia Phillies. Ooh! A rematch of the 1993 World Series! How exciting! I don’t know why people even bother mentioning crap like this. It was 16 years ago – it’s not like any of the players currently on either team have any connection whatsoever to those World Series squads. Well, except for Mitch Williams and the Phillies. Somebody has to clean the windshields of the cars in the players’ parking lot. [ESPN, 8:00 ET]
• College Baseball. NCAA World Series: Arkansas vs. Virginia. I’m sorry – I got nothing here. Um, most of these players will never make it to the big leagues…does that work? [ESPN2, 8:00 ET]
• Totally Righteous Grub, Brah! Dinner Impossible: X Food at the X Games. Watch chef Robert Irvine whip up some tasty morsels for some totally gnarly dudes and chicks. Radical! What? I used to subscribe to Thrasher and had a Lance Mountain deck – I got street cred. Whatever, dude. [Food Network, 11:00 ET]
• Yet Another Show With A Misleading Title. Property Virgins. What do you mean it’s not a show about people fucking houses? That’s false advertising man. Thank goodness for the internet – (types in “pounding drywall” into search engine, looks at results) – man, that didn’t work either. Lame. [HGTV, 9:00 ET]
• This Would Have Been A Lot Cooler Of A Show Had It Been A Documentary About The Recording Of The B-Side To “The Boy With A Thorn In His Side” by The Smiths. Mystery Diagnosis: The Woman With A Knife In Her Head. “Behind the hatred there lies a murderous desire…for love…” It’s true, you know.
