Off-Day TV Guide

Monday, June 14, 2010

The Marlins are off today before starting an interleague set at home. Here are your options:
  • 7:00 pm EDT, MLB Seattle at St. Louis (ESPN): Pujols! Ichiro! Some other dudes!
  • 8:00 pm EDT, World Cup Cameroon vs. Japan (ESPN Classic, tape delay): Cameroon has one of the better kits in this year's World Cup.
  • 9:00 pm EDT, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia (Comedy Central): Four episodes of one of the best comedies on television, including "The Gang Exploits a Miracle," on of the series' high marks.
  • 9:00 pm EDT, MLB Tonight (MLB Network): It makes Baseball Tonight look like the Best Damn Sports Show Period.
  • 10:00 pm EDT, The Soup Presents (E!): Girl fights! I don't watch The Soup enough. Probably because I have a hard time convincing myself anything worthwhile is on E!.
Tonight's book recommendation: I'm just about finished with Philip Roth's The Human Stain, and holy hell is Roth brilliant. He creates characters with incredible depth, even someone who only shows up for a page or two gets a complex backstory which reveals a ton about his/her motives and emotional baggage, and you can tell Roth spent a good amount of energy creating these characters. Additionally, I can think of very few male writers better at writing in the female voice. It's a crime that Roth hasn't won the Nobel prize.
