|your world champion Houston Astros!|
With Halloween over and the World Series now concluded (featuring the Houston Astros and Philadelphia Phillies), Longhorn football in late season, AND the Major League Soccer Cup match... we've been TV busy this weekend.
At League HQ, Halloween is a marathon as we queue up movies starting in summer - resulting in 9 episodes discussing at least 12 movies covered on Ye Olde PodCaste. You're welcome. On top of that, we also watch other Halloween movies during October, including hosting a few Friday Watch Parties.
There's also Halloween TV things to see, and increasingly YouTube videos, so much media has been consumed.
All of which is weird - because I'm actually not a huge horror nut. It's just how things seem to play out.
These days I generally don't post much about TV and sports here, but with Halloween on Monday - this week we watched new episodes of one of my favorite shows, Documentary Now!, and the surprising return of Sherman's Showcase, which I assumed was canceled as it had been a while since new episodes appeared.
One thing I checked off on Saturday was the MLS season. Major League Soccer is, of course, fairly new to me. Last week, Austin FC - my entry point to the league - lost to LA FC in the Western Conference Championship. While of course one hopes that that your team will win, Austin FC's second season went shockingly well, and I'm new to all this, so how upset can you be?
The MLS Cup, which was Saturday afternoon, is essentially the Superbowl for American soccer. And as it's soccer, I think I saw one ad for it? LAFC wound up beating Philadelphia in a penalty kick shoot-out. It was a great game, and it was nice to watch one where I wasn't pulling super hard for anyone. If you were looking to check out a game this year, it was a good one!
Anyway - I guess I'm into soccer now?
