Saturday Night's Alright for Commenting, April 11, 2015

New, comments

Howdy, peoples. It's Saturday, April 11, 2015, and our favorite team is inching closer to opening OTAs (April 20, for those of you who were wondering).

Nine more days. I'd count them down with you, but me and math ain't friends.

In the meantime, we have the Rockets, Astros and Dynamo to keep us entertained while we crawl, slowly, to the glory that is NFL football.

The Rockets will be hosting the Pelicans tomorrow night as they attempt to improve their standings for the playoffs. That game begins at 6PM, Houston time, and will be carried on RootSportsSouthwest for those of us with cable.

The Astros are in my neck of the woods, taking on the Rangers in a weekend road trip to Arlington. Tonight's game starts at 7:05PM, Houston time, while Sunday's game starts at 2:05PM, before they head back home to welcome the Athletics.

The Dynamo will be welcoming the Montreal Impact in Houston. The team stands 9th in the conference, but the season is still young, so it's too early to despair.

For those of us who enjoy golf, the Masters championship is being played this weekend as well, where Tiger Woods will attempt--and fail--to regain past glory, and dozens of men will spend hours hitting a little white ball, chasing it down, and hitting it again. For those of us who struggle with putt-putt, this is an awesome TV program to cure insomnia, but millions around the world will be watching what goes on at Augusta National Golf Club as these athletes compete for a green jacket.

The wonderful thing about the S.N.O.T. is that this is our place to discuss any- and everything (mind the basic ground rules, though, dudes and dudettes). Want to vent about that really awful week at work? Want to chat about musicmovieswaist-training for men (I have it on good authority that a certain panda is contemplating this), or books? Here's the place.

To that end, Netflix just dropped Belle off in my mailbox. I have somewhat obscure film tastes, I would suspect, as one of the few vocal women on a board full of men, but Gugu Mbatha-Raw is an amazing actress, so I'll just leave you with a trailer.

And, since I absolutely love this man's music (and Jonny Lang, another under-appreciated blues artist), I'll drop a little Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
