Great to hear Larry and his friends are back.
The comic Artie Lange was recently invited to Joe Buck’s new HBO show Joe Buck Live. While on the show Lange was both funny and abrasive. Now the head of HBO, Ross Greenburg has apologized for Lange and banned him from HBO,
“I would say I’m sorry to anyone across America who had kids and were watching what they thought was a good and honest sports show that turned into gutter language.”
I did not see the original airing of the show, but I did catch it on a replay. Also, the show continues to replay on HBO. Now if Mr. Greenburg is so sorry for Lange’s actions why is he continuing to air the program? Either apologize and refuse to air the show, or continue to air it and embrace Lange’s brand of comedy. Just don’t profit from Lange’s appearance and fain shock.
The third season of the HBO show Hard Knocks will feature the Cincinnati Bengals. For Trojan fans this will be a great year. The show should feature a number of former USC players, including Rey Maualuga, Carson Palmer, Keith Rivers, and Fostee Rucker.

“A lot of people say Kenny Powers is a woman hater. That’s not true. I love women, every f***ing one of them, even the ugly-as-sh** ones. But don’t ask me to trust them, not even nuns. Because every pair of ti** comes with a gaping hole of need that even Kenny Powers can’t fill.”

The new HBO Eastbound & Down show stars Danny McBride as Kenny Powers, a 35-year-old ex MLB pitcher who is forced to return to his home town to be a P.E. teacher. The story is exactly what you would expect if John Rocker was forced to go back to his home town.
The show is great, at least the first episode was. To give you an idea, Kenny Powers’s motto is “You’re F**Kin’ Out, I’m F**kin’ In!” What more could one ask for?
