For example, you have the Courtney Cox in the show Cougar Town
where she is no longer hanging out with twentysomethings in a purple apartment! The Friends and Dirt alum has graduated to cougar status on the new ABC sitcom, playing a 40-year-old, on-the-prowl single mom raising her own near-twentysomething. Could she be any hotter? I will probably check her out.. I uh mean this show out.
Well In Inwood this fall we have an old face in a new place (but not as Hot as Courtney even though he will tell you otherwise) as legendary Central Park Contact Ace Bobby "Larry Merchant" Fishman has joined a new team in Inwood called Box Car Lounge, featuring some but not all Contact players who dare to cross the 96th street barrier. The early reviews on Box Car Lounge are mostly positive and they promise to make an excellent contribution to Citysoftball.com's fall lineup. Too bad the same thing can't be said for TV's the new version of Melrose Place where the new school will never be as cool or original as the old school.
Other old faces in new places in TV Land include legendary actor Ed O'Neill
who you most likely remember as dysfunctional dad Al Bundy from the long-running series Married... with Children.Damn I loved that show. O'Neill is back for yet another family-focused sitcom, Modern Family and as a big Al Bundy fan I hope its a hit. Inwood's Married with Children version can be found in former Knockout and Cajita player Georgie Alonso who will manager and play for Danny MacsGeorgie's co-star will be Ex-Knockout slugger and avid chain smoker Tommy Higgleson
Don't let them fool you, they will be very competitive and fun to follow.
New TV shows to avoid and most likely cancel are NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) Brothers on Fox
and White Collar on USA
Most CSI shows are very good but this one has LL Cool J. Growing up I loved LL as a rapper, but after being a part of the worse sports movie ever, Any Given Sunday, he is on my avoid list. As for Brothers, Strahan needs to go back to the NFL today where he was very good and White Collar has the most unoriginal premise ever where the master criminal after finally being brought down by FBI agent, offers to help the Feds catch other notorious cons in order to remain a free man. Corny and tired theme.
Speaking of avoid/cancel in Inwood long time employee Chelo fall time slot is in serious jeopardy as the softball network executives are thinking of killing off his character.
Another thing I've noticed is that new fall TV shows and softball teams sometimes have too much actor/player movement. A prime example being Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell
who is now staring on V, Which is a re-imagining of the 1980s sci-fi miniseries and series. As an FBI counter terrorism agent Erica Evans (Elizabeth Mitchell) is the first to discover that, beneath the skin of a presumed friendly visiting alien race, they're more sinister than anyone imagined. Whatever. This show should be called W b/c it is going to be WACK!!!!!!!! She should never have been killed off the best show on TV Lost where she was edgy, hot, and a lot better girlfriend for Sawyer than that selfish cry baby Kate.
Another star leaving a favorite show of mine is legend Aaron "Haroooo" Fernandez Harrooooo has moved on from Knockout to play with Dominican powerhouse Trojan as a player and management advisor. Ironically after years of not wanting to play in the cold, Dominican teams are saving Citysoftball.com.
All this softball player movement reminds me of Vampire Shows like the Vampire Diaries.
Everyone loves blood sucking Vampire Shows. I don't know why. It it the curse thing? The undead thing? The beauty thing? Sleep all day? Anyway, new Vampire Shows always come up and they usually are pointless and senseless. The same idea applies to player movement as guys move from team to team for no real reason but to move.
Speaking of the undead what is up with Knockout? Who the Hell is on that team anyway? Well we are no longer a sophisticated show like CSI or something like a Kelsey Grammer-led comedy like the new show Hank.
Right now we are more like a cross between Ugly Betty,Fringe, and Heroes
Awkward, miscast, and trying to recover past glory. However, we have added a new member to the cast, smooth fielding Freddy Hernandez,
in the hopes of boosting ratings and more importantly our place in the standings.
If you want entertainment, conflict, and drama the new fall TV and SB lineup won't disappoint. Old fan favorites like American Idol
without Paula, will be back. As for new shows I'm sure if you watched Fox's preview this spring, you can already hum along with Glee, but fall episodes will reveal that the dark high school dramedy is about more than just singing. Mr. Shuster needs six more students to compete at regionals; recruiting them is where the fun starts. Jane Lynch is a dream as an iron-fisted cheerleading coach. Kristin Chenoweth, Victor Garber and rapper Eve will all guest-star
Following the same suit, defending 2008 Inwood Champions the Westlanders will be back stronger than ever.
However, Dio Jackson (right above) is giving up the captain's chairfor Championship manager John Sheppard (left above) this year. Interesting.
Both the Networks and SB teams have high hopes for the Fall.TV hopes shows like 'FlashForward' which inherits 'Lost''s more puzzling elements. The central mystery -- Why did everyone black out for two minutes? And were their visions really from the future? -- is absorbing enough for fans to theorize obsessively about it for years to come. While Softball teams dream of bringing home the Championship.
Hope you enjoy both new fall seasons and stay tuned to the Softballinsider.net for all your Gossip Girl and Desperate Housewives
quality SB worthy information.
