What's On Television Today: December 2nd, 2010

I'm going to steal an idea that I love. Because like most people in my position, I don't have the time I have to create something wonderful on every post. So why fight it? Lets embrace the goofiness that comes with having to shorten everything in our society: journals become twitters, news become clips, Spud Webb becomes Mugsy Bogues. Keep things quick. 

So in honor of one of my favorite Youtube series, the Andy Rooney Game, I'll dig into each TV clip tonight with two sentences that are only vaguely related together in my stream of consciousness. Like so:

Saturdays can, indeed, be very expensive. So can Thursdays if you're a Texans fan. 

Desks
- Houston Texans @ Philadelphia Eagles -- NFLN/CW, 7:20 PM -- Your Houston Texans will travel to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles for their playoff lives. Cheesesteak is every bit as good as Turkey leftovers.
- Miami Heat @ Cleveland Cavaliers -- TNT, 7 PM -- LeBron James returns home, where he is sure to be booed. Did anyone get the license plate number of that mack truck?

Sleep
-College Football -- Arizona St. Sun Devils at (23) Arizona Wildcats -- ESPN, 7 PM -- The Sun Devils will have to contain Nick Foals. In the end, isn't that what we all need to worry about containing?
- Phoenix Suns @ Golden State Warriors -- TNT, 9:30 PM -- These two teams should score quite a few points as neither of them can play defense. I really think the Maginot Line strategy should have been put into effect in the Crimean War.
-College Basketball -- UCLA Bruins @ Kansas Jayhawks -- ESPN2, 8 PM -- Basketball Prospectus' Kevin Pelton calls it a "Howland" when a coach takes a timeout right before a media timeout to give his team more rest. I would like a Howland, when I'm cleaning my garage.

Christmas Presents
San Jose Sharks @ Ottawa Senators -- NHL Network, 6:30 PM -- The Sharks have failed to advance to the Stanley Cup several years in a row despite being a high-quality team. How come the sharks in Jaws were so good when it counted?
