    Come on guys, I’ll be more than disappointed if the Miami Heat doesn’t win the NBA title just like what it did last year when the Dallas Mavericks beat them to the curve. :-(

  3. LizB says:

    THUNDER UP!!!!! Can’t wait for the game tonight.

    • leahbh says:

      All aboard the OKC bandwagon. Here come all the “I was born and raised in OKC” folks. Lived their in the late 70s and 80s, and never found a person in my military career who even acknowledges visting the state (GIs get around). I can’t forget you guys from Seattle who will claim them now, cause they are doing big things. Living in Kentucky, and watching first hand the ushering of the Calipari era and a sudden blue wash of the state. You couldn’t find a proud wearing UK fan before that and up ’til after they won in the late 90’s. They win this year and its funny to say “Hey, you are a UK fan? Been living here for 15 years and its weird how you failed to mention it up until March Madness this year.” Everyone knows that person, and if you don’t you are probably him/her. Facts provided by obscure cities/states (i.e. Green Bay, New Orleans,KY) whose fan base exceed their population when a franchise has success.

        I don’t get the point of your long winded post. I live in Oklahoma (1.5 hrs from okc) and have attended many thunder games. I’ve been a fan since the beginning (most real thunder fans don’t include the seattle days, we think of our team as a completely new team, we don’t want anyone else’s history or records). I am a real fan, not a bandwagon, fair weather fan.

      • TheBeach says:

        Weird…if you’ve been living in Kentucky for 15 years, you must have been living under a rock. I lived in Lexington for 20 years and can testify there are no more loyal basketball fans, year in and year out, winning or losing, than KY fans who truly bleed blue.

    just glee project for me…

    • Phil says:

      The Glee Project is just as stupid as Glee. They prioritize LGBT people over “straight” talented people. That’s discrimination too.

      • D.J. says:

        Come again? The two winners last year (Damien and Sam) were both straight white men. One was also a Christian. And a little secret Phil…you may find more than a few gays in musical theater.

  15. Shaun says:

    Hells and Masterchef.

    HDTV should never have done anything associated with those annoying, pathetic Kardashians. We all are sick of them, they are just a bunch of idiots that lack any sort of intelligence. HDTV will get low ratings for that show, what were they thinking. No one wants to sit there and watch that..
