Maestro, the music if you please:

It's college football's offseason, which means that we all find ourselves in the position of needing something to occupy our time. Sure, some of you have jobs, families, and hobbies which do not involve consumption of hard liquor or swearing at teenagers in athletic gear. Or at Gary Danielson. But for some among us this is a true existential dilemma.

One option of course is to find something else on the old television/computer/tablet.  One could argue that we currently find ourselves in the midst of a golden age of viewable entertainment. There are now more channels through which to consume original television programming that have ever existed. Long gone are the days of my youth when the options were the local CBS affiliate or GPTV. I watched a lot of Marty Stouffer's Wild America and Murphy Brown as a child. We may not know the long term effects for another couple of decades.

Fortunately today's youth don't have that problem. Though they do labor under the false assumption that Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber are to be taken seriously, which is much, much worse than watching Marty track mating martens through the tundra.  But I digress.

I now have more than two television channels, and I hope you do too. While as usual you are free to discuss whatever you esteemed members of the Dawg Sports brain trust land  upon, if you're looking for a topic this thread would be a great place to share your summer television and streaming recommendations. What are you watching? Is it any good? What can we catch up on besides YouTube uploads of the 1985 Georgia/Florida game (which I actually watched last night)? Until later...

Go 'Dawgs!!!
