First day without a Marlins game to tune into, here are some suggestions to pass the time this evening.
- MLB: Rangers at Red Sox, ESPN, 7:00pm: It's baseball but the slate is pretty bare. There are a few other snoozers if you have MLB.TV.
- NCAA Basketball: Kentucky vs Connecticut, CBS, 9:00pm: If you follow Dave or I on Twitter you know we aren't big on college hoops, but it is a game for all the marbles, one shining moment, etc. I'm rooting for UConn as they allowed me to drop a somewhat obscure movie line on Saturday.
- Anything on HBOGo: Find your friend's or parents' login information if you need to but there's just a wealth of quality content. I'd recommend starting with Game of Thrones. As for me, I'm going to watch the premier of this new comedy, Silicon Valley, by the creator of Office Space. (Dave recommends Veep as well).
You may have heard the Marlins broadcast team mention on Sunday's telecast, we all should pick up and read Up, Up, and Away, Jonah Keri's new book about the Expos. Baseball in Montreal really was/is a unique story that we at MDH can appreciate, plus there are Marlins tie-ins, obviously. The title alone should make you buy it. It should come as no surprise that David Samson and Jeffrey Loria declined to be interviewed for the making of the work.
Probably a good time to do your taxes if you haven't already. If you have, just start computing how many Marlins tickets you can buy with your refund.
