Cars Don’t Run on Coffee but Comedy Does

Jerry Seinfeld’s new season of ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ premieres July 6 on Netflix. And the theme is “Think short.”

Ohhhh yeah (chick chicka chicka).

An American Football Coach in London

It’s not Thursday or Friday. However, that won’t stop a Tuesday Throwback from 2013.

Boom (as said by Andy Bernard, Cornell class of ’95)

There are a lot of soccer fans in the United States of America. And some of whom are casually watching the 2018 World Cup. Many American fans are drawn to teams overseas that they are connected to via a family heritage connection, or because of a favorite player, coach and/or style of play.

Example: The United States is my number one team (of course), but I have always been drawn to the fluid and creative total football stylings of the Dutch. Family wise, my lineage is heavily German. Since the U.S. and Dutch failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, I am cheering for Germany. Add in the fact that my favorite club team is Bayern Munich and its star German players are anchoring Joachim Löw’s squad.

Although, be wary of the French as they have built a great team of veterans and young guns alike. They also play exciting soccer.

However, there are still many Americans who are not particularly fond of the beautiful game, don’t have a dog in the fight or are apathetic because they prefer American football.

Fair enough. For you, I recommend Coach Lasso.

Huh. I actually thought that was behind-the-scenes footage of former USMNT coach Bruce Arena preparing for last year’s World Cup qualifying matches.

I Want to Eat Dinner & Party. No, Not a Dinner Party

If you work in an office, then leave said office, but then hang out with people from that office, have you actually left the office?

Here’s a visual study guide of sorts to help you answer this question.

And here’s the uninvited, yet always entertaining supplemental material that serves as an assisting resource to the study guide.

If you work in the right office, then the office will never leave you.

And that can be a thoroughly entertaining reality.

A Mind Trip Unlike Any Other

The man’s name was Robin Williams. The man’s occupation was making people laugh. And the formula for comedy is tragedy plus time.

We owe Robin Williams, the man who made us laugh out loud and cry like no other comic (Mrs. Doubtfire, dears), to take the time to hear and understand his personal tragedy that, evidently, was a parallel force pulling at the imaginative, faster-than-lightning comedic genius.

This brand new trailer for the brand new HBO documentary ‘Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind’ will make us laugh and make us cry. Hopefully, HBO has timed the release date of Monday, July 16 at 8 p.m. ET correctly so audiences can appreciate both emotions separately and as one.

One final picture of the art form known as Robin Williams.
