  • I thought Conan had red hair

    One of the signs of getting old is that you're never awake anymore to see the late night talk shows after Letterman and Leno.

    Last night, I was awake with my wife until after Late Night With Conan O'Brien came on. I haven't seen Conan in years, and I was very surprised that when he came out for the monologue, Conan doesn't have red hair anymore. It's a light brown now. Did he color it? Or is this a natural fade of his hair color?

  • Kornheiser to MNF sounds great!

    When I heard ESPN announced its Monday Night Football announce team as Joe Theismann, Mike Tirico and Tony Kornheiser, I was overjoyed.

    Kornheiser's national radio show was three hours of joy to my ears, even when he didn't know what he was talking about. The big issues will be how well Mr. Tony deals with the travel (he strongly dislikes flying) and his ability to stay awake (he's usually in bed by 10).

    I fully expect him to show up in the booth for the first broadcast, dressed in pajamas, pillow in hand, and announce, "Why is this game on so late? Why can't they start the games earlier if they want me to do this? Just wake me up when it's time to go home."

    But if he can stay awake, it should be interesting.... 

  • The Colts played the Chargers? Really?

     Golly, I love how CBS set up its NFL programming today.

    We here in Lexington got only one NFL game on our CBS affiliate today, and it's the 4 p.m. Bengals-Lions game, which is over before halftime.

    Didn't get to see the Colts-Chargers. Hope the local affiliate likes its ratings this week, since they'll be in the crapper.

    And I'm not even going to get into why the early game on Fox was 49ers-Jags. Ick.
