Happy Summer Solstice. The Marlins have an off day in Baltimore today so here is tonight's TV guide.
- 6:00pm EDT, World Cup tape delays (ESPN Classic): Tune in to see what a real chorus of vuvuzelas should sound like. Also featuring the world's
bestmost popular player.
- 8:00pm EDT, How I Met Your Mother, Two and a Half Men, etc. (CBS): The CBS Monday night lineup is usually a good sequence of sitcoms to watch every now and then for a few laughs.
- 8:00pm EDT College World Series (ESPN): UCLA and TCU face off with the winner moving to 2-0, and one victory away from the final series.
- 9:00pm EDT, The Pixar Story (CNBC): From the show page:
The Pixar Story takes audiences inside the company that transformed the animated film industry. Using never-before-seen footage from the Pixar library, along with historic archival animation and first hand accounts by animators, studio executives, directors, producers, and voice performers, Academy Award nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks tells the riveting story of the Bay Area start-up that revolutionized Hollywood.
On my to-do list is Christopher Hitchens' Hitch-22: A Memoir. You can read some excerpts at Slate.
