Imagine for a second that you wake up on a Monday morning, scarf down a bowl of cereal, and hustle to the shower to get ready for work. As you get dressed and give some thought to the most important things you need to accomplish in the upcoming week, a friend calls to give you some horrific news: someone you love, a young man just 19 years old, was involved in a serious motorcycle accident yesterday.
Three “television enthusiasts,” the dynamic brother-sister duo of Marci and Rusty Buehler and Zac Hirschbeck, watch Game of Thrones each Sunday night and exchange their thoughts on the show’s happenings. This week, Rusty is absent due to filming obligations, so Marci and Zac are left alone to ponder the future of Westeros.
“I used to be jealous of Aaron Afflalo. I used to be jealous of Aaron Afflalo, he was the one to follow.” That is a line from Kendrick Lamar’s song “Black Boy Fly”, which is a part of his critically acclaimed debut album Good Kid M.A.A.D City, and has led to the uncovering of an interesting relationship between Kendrick Lamar and Aaron Afflalo.
Jimmy Fallon has been absolutely killing it since taking The Tonight show reigns from Jay Leno. I was worried that the switch to 11:35 PM ET would affect his following. However, with his strong presence on social media, we’ve seen Fallon secure his younger base and attempt to let older demographics know he can make them laugh as well. In his first show hosting the Tonight Show, his first message was very sincere and he promised that he would do whatever he could to make the audience laugh and go to bed happy. I think that message was huge in letting new fans, that had never watched his show before, know that he was the real deal.
As the NBA regular season comes to a close, we find ourselves days away from a highly anticipated postseason. Folks will look to see Miami possibly three-peat, the Spurs make another deep run, or a new breath of fresh air atop the NBA throne. Let’s take a look at the first round matchups, which start up this Saturday.
Here at The Butter Lamb, we have at least three contributors that are professional wrestling fans. My father, Tim Hirschbeck, grew up as a kid cheering the likes of Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, Bobo Brazil, and The Fabulous Freebirds. Matt Chase and I (Zac Hirschbeck) grew up rooting for the beer-swigging Steve Austin and reciting the catchphrases of The Rock. After an extended stay away from the WWE, we’ve stumbled back after watching CM Punk and Daniel Bryan ascend to the forefront of the company. After taking a few weeks to reflect upon WrestleMania, Tim, Matt, and I shared our thoughts about what happened and where we envision the company as it moves forward.

Now being a few days removed from yet another captivating Masters Tournament, CJ Brunner and Jimmy Abbott have had time to properly reflect upon Bubba’s second Green Jacket, Miguel Angel Jimenez’s magnetism, and Rickie Fowler’s admirable fashion sense. Here are their thoughts regarding what happened over the weekend.
This past Tuesday, I had the pleasure of seeing the Hold Steady at the Town Ballroom. I have long been a fan of the Brooklyn-based group. Over the past year I’ve acquired all six of their studio albums (including the recently released “Teeth Dreams), but I’d yet to see a live performance. After Tuesday, I’m eager to see them again.
As most European Leagues are coming to a close, there has been a recent cry for expanded technology use to help officials make correct in-game decisions. Just last weekend for example, we saw West Ham score a controversial equalizer in a high-profile match versus Liverpool. At first look, it was difficult to see whether a foul should have been given, as there were a number of players fighting to get to the floated corner. Liverpool’s keeper Simon Mignolet rose highest to claim before losing the ball from his grasp. The rebound was guided home by West Ham’s Guy Demel. The assistant immediately raised his flag for a foul, while head referee Anthony Taylor initially allowed the goal to stand. After briefly conversing, the lineman was overruled and the goal was still allowed.
