Evening Reading

By Garnett Lee, Jan 11, 2011 5:00pm PST Well, it turned out that my gut feeling about Oregon was misplaced. Both teams played their hearts out after a slow first quarter, but in the closing minutes Auburn showed how battle-hardened playing in the SEC had made them. Only a few NFL games left too, but boy are there some great match-ups taking shape--big time rivalries like Ravens vs. Steelers and Jets vs. Patriots, two exciting offenses in Falcons vs. Packers, and the Cinderella story Seahawks vs. the Bears.

While we're ticking off the time for the games to arrive this weekend, here's the top video game stories from today on the Shack:

Tiger fans, you've earned this: WAR EAGLE! Enjoy a well-earned championship.

  • I was checking out tvtropes and I found something kind of funny:

    http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/IntercontinuityCrossover

    For more information and examples, see Thom Holbrook's Crossovers and Spin Offs Master List, which documents all known crossovers between TV series, except for cartoons. With this information, the site has been able to identify no fewer than 38 contiguous TV "universes" (as of March 2008) which are home to widely disparate (and apparently unlikely) combinations of series from different eras and networks.... series ranging from Six Feet Under and Everybody Loves Raymond to Law And Order and The X Files, taking in M* A* S* H, Cop Rock and Home Improvement along the way. Thanks to the baroque web of interconnections and crossovers, it is suggested that these shows all inhabit the same universe.

    But this is the best part:

    It has been noted on this and other sites that the web of crossovers connects many shows, directly or indirectly, to St Elsewhere. Since that entire series was shown in its final episode to be the fantasy of an autistic mental patient, we might reasonably conclude that the whole of television is All Just A Dream. In the words of Dwayne McDuffie, one of the executive producers of Justice League, "The last five minutes of St Elsewhere is the only television show, ever. Everything else is a daydream."

    Haha! That is fucking awesome!
