Well that's got to be the first time a U.S. governor has ever uttered those words on national television. Also divulged in this interview with NBC's Brian Williams: He got lap-band advice from Rex Ryan and the David Letterman donut-scarfing appearance was his "goodbye" to obesity.
On his way to a weekend of Scranton-related festivities, for The Office's final sendoff, Rainn Wilson--AKA Dwight Schrute--began experiencing a sensation with which many of us are familiar: deep, bitter frustration at Philadelphia International Airport and its US Airways overlords. Here's Wilson, in his own tweets.So @usairways just screwed me & half the cast of The Office. Conctng flight left BEFORE departure time. Sorry Scranton won't see u til tom.— RainnWilson (@rainnwilson) May 3, 2013I'm going to REALLY enjoy trying to convince 3.5 million twinions not to fly @usairways b/c of their shitty service.— RainnWilson (@rainnwilson) May 3, 2013We're being
If only ever ESPN intern got to appear on camera. Outspoken Steelers Safety Ryan Clark, whose career may be nearing its end, is currently some sort of intern with the Worldwide Leader and will pop in several segments on your TV screen this week. Said his boss: "I can't tell you how impressed I am about how proactive he has been with us." See what you can accomplish when you delete your twitter account? [SI]
Before NBC came along and made it the setting for the American version of The Office, Scranton wasn't even notable for being the home of Joe Biden—because Biden was just some Delaware senator with a history of plagiarism. Indeed: That's why Scranton was chosen to be the setting for the show, because of it's very un-noteworthiness. It could just as easily have been Decatur, or Topeka.But fate smiled on Scranton, and Scranton is taking advantage one last time: With a big party to celebrate the finale of The Office.Organizers are now expecting at least 5,000 people to attend festivities in
For those of us trying to guess how The Following would wrap up its first season, creator Kevin Williamson shared a clue with Entertainment Weekly. “People live, people die,” he told the mag, coyly. But the real hint was in his explanation of what makes for a good TV ending. “I loved finales as a kid. Knots Landing had the best finales.” And so it should be no surprise that, in the tradition of those campy 80s soaps like Knots and Dallas, we’ve been left with a whopper of a cliffhanger. Williamson had suggested that the Joe Carroll story would draw to a close, and it did. Or did it? The only thing I’m sure of is that the season is over, Kevin Bacon will be back, and my eye is still twitching from that interrogation scene.
Maybe. Then again, remember who owns the tallest building on the city's skyline? Comcast, that's who. And while Comcast may be shipping its sports operations to Connecticut and the sweet, sweet tax advantages available to broadcast is that state, it still seems likely the hometown cable conglomerate will do its darndest to keep the hometown MLB team on its airwaves.That said, Yahoo Sports thinks Fox Sports may make a bid for the Phillies broadcasting rights:Comcast is a Philadelphia-based company. It does not want to lose the rights of the team that from 2009-11 ranked among the three highest local baseball
Consider this Matt Cartwright's freshman hazing. The first-term Democrat, who represents a district that has been gerrymandered drawn to include Scranton, Pottsville, and Easton, was featured on Stephen Colbert's recurring segment "Better Know a District." Cartwright, who says he's a fan of Colbert, nonetheless fell into his trap several times.After Colbert interpreted 'transient' as 'transgendered,' Cartwright was quick to clarify that he was in no way referring to the gender or sexuality of migrant farm workers.Colbert got him to say, in Spanish (more or less) "Hey you guys, get out of my neighborhood.""Taught" him to ride a bike.Cartwright, a graduate
