what's on the box?

I'm a big NBA fan.

And as many of you know, the NBA season is in jeopardy.

So...with no NBA to keep me occupied when there's no football on, I have to find other things on TV when there's no football on. I've realized that despite the fact that DirecTV provides me 800 channels, I only watch 10 channels. I have a few options with my TV programming...

I could...

1. Watch reality TV - I could catch up with those lovely "women" from the Atlanta Housewives. You know...see who NeNe is cussin' out or see who's sleeping with who. Maybe I could watch the Basketball Wives? If I did, maybe I'd figure out why Doug Christie married that psycho 17 times? Who gets married 17 times? Or maybe I could check out the hip hop wives show...where they are called wives but are really baby mommas. Seriously...I've never spent a minute watching any of this stuff. I only know of it through conversations at work and Twitter. I will...shamefully admit to watching Flavor of Love (season 1) & the Salt N Pepa Show (loved that joint)...but that's it

2. Watch movies I've never seen before - hmmm...where should I start...Casino, any of the Mission Impossible movies, Ironman, the Matrix Trilogy. Or maybe The Color Purple, Pulp Fiction, The Godfather, (Soul Plane <---definitely won't be watching that). As you can see, there's quite a few that I haven't seen so I've got some catching up to do.

3. Break out the XBox 360 - Who wanna see me in Madden??? It's been a minute since I've played my 360. It's been about 3 yrs. But I know...I mean I think...I'm still nice on the sticks

4. Watch CSPAN - you can NEVER get enough of CSPN

5. Watch Animal Planet - it's always fun to see a tiger bring down a zebra in the jungle

Who am I kidding? Pass me the remote so that I can find Martin, Good Times, and Sanford & Son

Lmbo! See that's the problem.. 800 channels for what? Redundant TV. There needs to be a package put together where you actually pay for what you want to tune your TV to. This statement coming from someone who's FED UP with paying over $100 for TV/Internet/Phone and it's killing me! Why? I can't watch MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL! It's on ESPN and I don't have it anymore. I can't watch any sporting event that takes place I have an interest in because I don't have ESPN! I'll pay for ESPN but not at the price of paying for all that other mess I can do without.

Okay, I'm done. I'm with you 100 on not having that in between option of watching some NBA until the weekend roll around and I can tune in the STEELERS! Pumps fist! Will it be a rematch? That's right I'm looking forward to them being back in the Championship again!

You can never get enough CSPAN? I can only hope that is dripping with sarcasm...

And who cares about the rest of them but you need to see Pulp Fiction asap. That is one of my faves.

Laughing at you but TV has gone downhill (in my opinion).

I'm throwing "The Usual Suspects" in your movie list. Nope, it's not a chick flick.

One of my pastimes beyond that of running and skating <~ #2 on the list now for 2 years, comes my love for sitting in a movie theater and enjoying a good movie... I've mentioned it before but will do so again.. Add 300 to the list and they were the makers of 'Immortals' in theaters now.. AWESOME. Oh yeah, 'No Country for Old Men' and a recent I've seen from Blockbuster, Red State is off the chain good!

I'd definitely say pass on reality TV. The only place reality isn't.

I think I remember you blogging a while back that you don't really watch movies or something like that, so I'm sure your list runs deep.

TV is not what it used to be. Reruns of the good stuff trumps any day. Or HGTV. =)

You can never go wrong with episodes of Martin or Fred Sanford. That said, I've been watching DVDs I've never seen and Kevin Costner's The New Daughter is a film that scared me some kind of bad.

I'm happy that basketball has returned. It's time.
