TGIF: Countryfest, Sunday Red, and The Goods

In Uncategorized on August 14, 2009 at 10:34 pm

TGIF, everyone. Friday is finally here. Been a long time coming this week.

I apologize on behalf of Game Six for the late posting – I was occupied with my fantasy football draft (FYI, we got better tonight). Anyway, here are a couple suggestions for the weekend:

1. Countryfest, Gillette Stadium

If you haven’t been, you should go. If you have been, chances are you’re going back. You don’t have to listen to, like, or otherwise care about country music to enjoy this all-day tailgate extravaganza. Simply combine beer, scorching hot weather, and an industrial strength grill and you’re in business. Get there early if you’re going as the parking lots fill up quickly and you really, really don’t want to be stuck on Route 1 for the entire day. Make sure you bring the essentials: Beverages, a basketball jersey (CYO or otherwise), Doritos, a great attitude, and an inflatable palm tree cooler. Seriously – I can’t recommend this experience highly enough. Do yourself a favor and make the trip.

2. Sunday Red

It’s looking more and more likely that Tiger Woods will once again be playing in the last group of a golf tournament this weekend. In this case, it’s a major – the PGA Championship – and if he can hold on for the win (he is, after all, 8-0 when leading a major after 36 holes), it will give him 15 for his career. Can he take the next step towards Nicklaus? I, for one, hope not, but don’t think for one second that means I won’t be watching.

3. The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard

If hot weather isn’t your thing – maybe you’re ready for fall, maybe you’d rather hold down the couch, or perhaps you have an embarassing sweating problem – then check out the new movie from Chappelle Show co-writer Neal Brennan, The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard. This movie has a lot going for it – first and foremost a great cast, including Jeremy Piven in Ari Gold Mode, The Hangover’s Ed Helms and Dr. Ken Jeong, and a Will Ferrell cameo. There’s also a hilarious Red Band (uncensored) trailer floating around the Interweb which you can find if you’re so inclined (and I recommend that you do, although I’m not going to post it here) and let’s just say that all signs point towards this movie being pretty damn funny. Anyway, if you want to get out of the heat or have nothing else to do, head to the local cinema and check out The Goods.

Enjoy yourselves everyone. We’ll be back on Monday.
