Mondays ... I hate Mondays

The lousiest thing about maintaining a blog in the offseason is that on many days, absolutely nothing happens of any consequence and as a result, today I have nothing to write about. I haven’t forgotten that Barry Bonds rightfully won his seventh MVP award yesterday, but I don’t even find that to be very interesting. In fact, I’d be surprised if you read anything (other than news stories) about Bonds winning today, which speaks to how ridiculously dominant the man’s been over the past four season. No other player could hit .362/.609/.812 and NOT have the baseball world still in total shock nearly a month after the season ended. But when Bonds destroys pitchers to that tune from start to finish, it becomes a "been there, seen that" situation.

But if a day without any baseball, football, or movie news is going to occur, I’m glad it happened on a Monday, which is my favorite night to chill in front of the TV and watch CBS Monday, which has become a minor obsession of mine. As many of you know, the lead show on Monday nights is Everybody Loves Raymond (which was extremely funny and smart as usual), but CBS has come up with two other quality shows that lead into Raymond’s 9 p.m. eastern slot: Still Standing and Listen Up, a show starring Jason Alexander that’s based on the life of ESPN’s Tony Kornheiser.

In fact, Listen has drawn enough viewers that CBS picked it up for the remainder of the season, making Alexander the first supporting cast member from Seinfeld to have his or her own sitcom not be canceled halfway through a television season. The show’s success stems from a likeable and familiar cast, which includes Alexander, Malcolm-Jamal Warner of The Cosby Show fame, and the adorable Daniella Monet, who’s probably going to have a great career in television and movies.

With that, I’m going to wrap up this entry. My pillow’s calling my name, and with a pretty busy day ahead of me, I probably shouldn’t ignore it and stay up until 3 a.m. again. With any luck, some sportswriter will write something that pisses me off and give me something to respond to tomorrow. Or maybe Mike Young will win the American League MVP award over Big Papi and Vlad the Impaler, which mlb.com seems to think is a possibility. Whatever.
