New Pooh

The trailer is total cheese (Keane, really?), but if you can get beyond the gaudy presentation, hopefully we can rejoice together for a new Pooh-Bear feature. Yes, yes. It's all Disney, all the time now. But A.A. Milne's brilliant creations need to be introduced to a new generation of kiddos, regardless of who's producing/distributing the thing. Thank you, 8 pounds 6 ounces, new born baby Jesus, for more Winnie-the-Pooh.

Can you believe this is actually happening? I mean, I could sit through a dozen more crappy Transformers films just to make 100% sure this hits cinemas. And that's the Dude. For reals, son.

The Hasselhoffs

Why don't they play commercials like this on Hulu? Instead, I watch the same three commercials for Toyota, Geico and Samantha Bee going on about kids or something. The internet has literally thousands of new adverts just waiting to be seen -- so many that I should never have to view the same one twice. Think variety, Hulu.

Wrastlin' Clip of the Week

All you need to know: Paul Wight and Paul Reubens -- what a team!

WWE, you kill me. I don't know why you still exist, except for surreal moments like Big Show dressed in a Pee-wee Herman suit.

One for the Books

This is not the team you pick to win the World Series. Not at spring training. Not at the trade deadline. Not in September. But this is the team, with great pitching, with timely hitting, who gets hot at just the right time, who ends up winning every year. McCovey Chronicles*, take it away:

So, so many things had to go right for this. Nine teams had to pass on Tim Lincecum. Twenty-nine had to pass on Aubrey Huff. Edgar Renteria had to play through a torn bicep and a strained old. Some players had to stay healthy, and other players had to get hurt to make room for the players who would lead the Giants to a World Series title.

The Giants won the World Series. The San Francisco Giants. No foolin’. It’s on Wikipedia and everything.
