In Case You Missed It: Week In Review

I don’t know about you, but I forgive Jim Joyce. He’s obviously a good guy, and mistakes happen. Armando Galarraga, meanwhile, has become one of my most (and I’m sure basically everyone else’s) respected players in the game. In other news, this season of Friday Night Lights (the show’s fourth) has helped ease my pain over LOST. I watched the final episode yesterday (it’s currently broadcasting on NBC but had already been broadcast earlier this year on DirecTV), and it reaffirmed my belief that it’s the best show on television and then some. If you’re not watching, or if you’ve never watched, I urge you to do so post-haste. So, if you were busy catching up on these couple things or whatever else it is you crazies do, check out what you missed on Knox Road this week. [image via LA Times]
