18 Channels and Nothings On (Besides Sports).
WWF (wrestling) is a favorite Monday night TV watch around here. It is on the USA Network, which is one of the 18 channels they show here.
I guess it does not look so bad; sure, it is all fake and scripted, but everyone knows that going in. No drug test scandals. They just openly admit it.
The inmates recently voted to change our selection of TV channels, and as a result they added ESPN Classic. We now have ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN Classic. The bulk of ESPN Classic seems to be old boxing matches.
I am no fan of boxing, and even more incredulous that anyone would want to watch reruns over and over again. But that is what the TV is showing on many nights. Although that will change a little bit now.
The drought of sports that my fellow brother inmates like to watch is over now, with the beginning of the pre-season football games. There was always such a pall over Club Fed when the basketball playoffs concluded, and didn't lift until that first pre-season football game. Of course one person's sorrow is usually someone else's joy.
It was easier for the good old county boys at Club Fed to watch the NASCAR races on Sundays when this mini sports drought occurred. But NASCAR is not even on the radar where I am currently residing.
On a related TV topic, I think you are right that it was Porky Pig and not Bugs Bunny who said "That's All Folks!" But I do have an image of Bugs sitting inside the Warner Brothers Logo, saying "That's all folks!" and pulling down a shade. Did he do it to prove how it sounded without the stuttering? Did he imitate the stutter? Both would be problematic in today's PC world. But than again everyone knows pigs do not really talk so who's to say how they should sound?
I am out of all sweet treats so it will be a long four days till commissary on Tuesday, but then again you are probably reading this on Tuesday. Whatever that has to do with the price of tea in China, I do not know.
