I was just plugging the best comedy on TV right now. If you don't watch it, try it on for size. Ron Swanson might quickly become your favorite character on TV.

Here's an exchange with his ex-wife:
Tammy: Guess I'll be heading home.

Ron: Catching the number twelve bus to Satan's butthole?

Tammy: Actually I prefer the number 69 train to Humpsville Station.

And another quote from when he was about to be interviewed by a 9-year-old for a school project:
Ron: It's never too early to learn that the government is a greedy piglet that suckles on a taxpayer's teet until they have sore, chapped nipples. I'm gonna need a different metaphor to give this nine year old.

And when he's challenged for a best-tasting burger by Rob Lowe (who made a low-fat turkey burger with fancy trimmings):
Ron: Here's mine. It's a hamburger made out of meat on a bun with nothing. Add ketchup if you want I couldn't care less.

And this is what set up the challenge:
Chris: Have you ever tried a turkey burger?
Ron: Is that a fried turkey leg inside a grilled hamburger? If so, yes, delicious.

One last one, I promise. This one is best with the accompanying video, but I have no time to look for it:

Ron: Indianapolis is home to Charles Mulligan's Steakhouse, the best damn steakhouse in the damn state. I have taken a picture of every steak I've ever eaten there. June 2004: Porterhouse, medium rare, Bearnaise sauce. January 2000: They call this one, The Enforcer. February '96: The steak ribeye. The Whiskey: Lagavulin 16. The lady next to me? A Wing Dang Doodle. Specifically, my ex-wife Tammy. OK, this is the first I ever went there. Look at me. Just a kid.

I've enjoyed it from the start, but the pas two seasons have been excellent. Interestingly, it coincided with the introduction of the Rob Lowe and Adam Scott, and the removal of Paul Schneider. If you gave up on it in S1 or S2 then I can't really say you'll love S3/4, but there's a chance.

Not if Buttman can help it. Maybe he'll try to move Atlanta to Phoenix. Drum up some interest in hockey by bringing in some cross-town rivalry. Win-win. Facepalm

Surely, you mean S5?

My 8-year-old was reading an Archie comic book last night. In one of the stories Archie day-dreams of playing hockey. The way it's drawn, the hockey sticks are 2x4s with a blade, and are wielded like baseball bats. The helmets looks like something from a 40s football movie, and Mr. Beasley is playing in goal. That last part was the most realistic.

That's the level of understanding of hockey among the vast majority of the american population. If they ever got a team in San Antonio, you know when the players lift their sticks at the end of a game to salute the fans? They'll hang a piƱata from the rafters.

I won't lie, I would be one of the players who asks to be traded instead of playing in Winnipeg. I can't see Byfuglien being excited at all.

Really? I'd play in Siberia if I could make the kind of money they make to play a game.

EDIT: If they ever make a Siberian foosball league that pays its players millions, I'll have an opportunity to prove my claim.

Yeah, I'd play hockey for 60K a year, let alone millions, but that would not be my first choice to play by any stretch. In fact, it's pretty low on the totem pole of where I would sign as a free agent - which sucks for Byfuglien who literally just signed with Atlanta and soon will have to brave -40 weather to get to the rink.

Byfuglien is at least closer to his hometown in Minnesota now.

It's funny, Atlanta was trying to acquire black players to appeaser the fanbase, now they're moving.
