After 31 years… it’s a wrap.
So I was in last night and around 2am got to watching some of the shows I had saved on my DVR. After flipping through a couple of options I came across HBO’s critically acclaimed show ‘Inside The NFL’. Within the first 2 minutes host Bob Costas announces this is the last show, not of the season, but of the series. I kind of grew up on this show and it was undoubtedly THE BEST when it came to the extensive football coverage and more importantly the way it was presented. Simply unparalleled in its brilliance. It’s only fitting that the show went out on what is the greatest football game I or many others will ever see, SuperBowl XLII .
An ending is the inevitable conclusion of anything that ever begins. Typically we as a society, gloss over this inevitability merely taking things for granted until it no longer exists. Then we sit and wonder how we could have enjoyed that particular person, place or thing.. just a bit more.
Chances are if you’re on this site… you remember the series finale of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.[youtube 6tGOujCDntY]
The finality of it all..
or more recently.. The Sopranos[youtube rnT7nYbCSvM]
Since we identify with television in most cases more than any other medium, a finale of an endeared show strikes close to home, but all things obviously end.
Friendships… careers.. bonds.. Dynasties ming, Rocafella or television shows.. even this illustrious website will one day be no more. So basically.. enjoy shit while you can.. don’t get caught up on labels or what might be.. revel in what is now.
