Welcome to Friday kids.
It's Big Game weekend and I couldn't care less.
In their effort to engage the lax LA fans, the NFL alienated one of their oldest, most devoted fan bases.
Yeah, I said it. The fix was in. Hell, two weeks ago, when talking to my wife shortly after we woke up, I said that the coastal teams would win before the day was over.
I was right.
The seats in that new stadium in LA won't sell themselves.
So, the Saints fell by the wayside so that the league could get their East Coast/West Coast matchup.
You suck Goddell.
So, moving on from that, let's meet this week's cheesecake, shall we?
Say hello to Gina Rodriguez.
Ms. Rodriguez is most famous for her role on the CW's Jane the Virgin
. Hell, she even won a Golden Globe award for the role in 2015. Think about that. She won an award for a role in a CW show. That's big chops.
In addition to that award-winning role, she's also appeared in other Geek approved fare such as Big Mouth, Annihilation
and the new animated Carmen Sandiego
She's featured here today because she stars in the newly opened Miss Bala
, the new remake of a 2011 Mexican film of the same name. It's a grittier role for Ms. Rodriguez, but she'd due to start spreading her wings.
Ms. Rodriguez is now 2-for-2 with American updates of international fare. I think that's what you call finding your wheelhouse kids.
Let's hit the links.
