NFL Draft 1st Round (ESPN or NFL Network, 8:00pm-God knows when, ET): See your favorite team pass on future playmakers and draft injury-prone linemen. Or they might take one of the six quarterbacks that belong in the 5th round.
Spaceballs: The Movie (VH1 Classic, 8:00-10:00pm ET): A Mel Brooks classic.
NBC Comedy Lineup (NBC, 8:00-11:00pm ET): New episodes of Community, The Office, Parks and Recreation, and 30 Rock. Bonus rerun of The Office too because The Paul Reiser show was thankfully cancelled.
Book (from Dave)
Patton Oswalt's Zombie Spaceship Wasteland is a must for fans of his nerdy and irreverent standup. The book is equal parts memoir and commentary, and reads as if he had interspersed sections of his journal with his creative writing folder. The second chapter, "Punch-Up Notes," left me in tears from laughing so hard at the fictional movie script for which he writes notes.
Today's bonus is a beer recommendation. Recently I had the Colette, by Great Divide Brewing. It's delicious. It's a Belgian Saison style brew, perfect for the summer months as it gets
warmer very hot outside. Unlike traditional saisons that had very low alcohol content, this checks in at 7.3% which will help you get through the NFL Draft if you choose to follow.
Also, Dave recommends the new Tune-Yards album. You can check out a music video by them at this link.
