Farewell, Galactica

My favorite show on television the past few years has been "Battlestar Galactica."

It's occupied the No. 1 priority list on my DVR over that span, bumping anything my wife would want to record.

Now, however, I'm going through Battlestar withdrawl and she's enjoying the top spot on the DVR list.

"BSG" wrapped up March 20 and I already miss it.

The DVDs are great, bringing me back to when the show rocked. Especially that first season, which brought back memories of when I would come home from work and unwind with Battlestar and a beer.

Now, there are no more Cylons to fight. No earth to discover. No more scenes of No. 6.

The show wasn't entirely sci-fi. It was more drama set in space.

And, man, did they have some good fight scenes. The series finale had an epic battle, along with a nice, tidy ending.

Now, I'm looking for another series to get wrapped up in.

Have a suggestion? Want to share "BSG" stories, post a comment.

sometimes it also has has similar long periods of inactivity, even if those long periods are
not shown on TV.

In big poker tournaments, such as the highlights we see in the World Series of Poker, has
skewed the reality of how long of a process that the game can really be. Sometimes even
in baseball, during the World Series there are long period of innings where there isn’t
much going on, like in poker except one person raising and others folding.

That can change quickly and sometimes just as dramatically as a big solo shot homer. A
player can make a raise, followed by a three-bet from another player. The original raiser
then moves all-in and gets called. Now, all the people watching the event are on their
feet cheering and screaming fo…

Every Steelers fan knows Antwaan Randle El.

His pass in Super Bowl XL helped clinch the Steelers' fifth Lombardi.

Now people might know Randle El for another reason: He's having trouble remembering things and having trouble walking down stairs.

The Post-Gazette's story was a grabber, with Randle El saying he wouldn't play football if he could do it over again.

Here's a quote:

The kids are getting bigger and faster, so the concussions, the severe spinal cord injuries, are only going to get worse. It’s a tough pill to swallow because I love the game of football. But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
He played football for nine seasons. Now he worries ab…
