It’s been a weird week, trying to get back in the swing of things after our vacation. The weather hasn’t helped, with the cold mornings robbing me of motivation to do much of anything. I have a couple posts mentally prepared but just can’t sit down long enough to bash them out.
So I guess I’ll share some links.
My main man John N. sent me this link, to an excerpt from Chris Nashawaty’s upcoming book about the making of Caddyshack. It’s a great read, as I’m sure the book will be. I do not understand, though, why it’s taken nearly 40 years to write this book!

I don’t do a lot of watching of old TV shows that air on Comedy Central, FX, etc. I barely have the time to keep up with my current shows let alone go back and watch ten-year old episodes.
I came across this history of The Office’s legendary “The Dinner Party” episode last week and saved it. I read through it Monday and could barely stop laughing. I re-watched the episode on Tuesday and roared the entire time. I highly recommend reading and then watching.

Finally, I think I found a link to this on Twitter. I have no idea how accurate it is, but it claims to be a database of NBA court designs. I’d pay good money to see a college version of this. I admit that I prefer the minimalism of the old courts to the garishness of the modern courts. I’m linking to page three, where the Kansas City Kings courts from their days at Kemper Arena are located. Not sure why there aren’t older courts at Municipal Auditorium or in the franchise’s earlier stops in Cincinnati and Omaha in there.
- There are several college courts in here, for teams that have played regular season, home games at colleges at some point. ↩
