Heads-up re: TCM, 10/19

It’s a gorgeous day in Madison, WI, no doubt, but if you happen to be home this afternoon circa 3:00PM and not consumed in your studies, then you’ve only got two options for recreation as far as I’m concerned: you can watch my beloved Halos try to climb up off the mat against the nefarious Yanks, or you can watch the Marx Brothers’ A Night in Casablanca (1946) on TCM. The latter promises to inspire chuckling just as the former promises to inspire cringing. The MLB playoffs are the most pessimistic time of the year for me, and what better way to blow off steam during commercial breaks than to catch up with Groucho, Harpo and Chico? It’s a “howl-raiser,” for crying out loud.

    I’d stick with the ‘howl-raiser,’ if I were you. I’ve seen the playoff joy, up close and personal, and it’s fun for no one. The Brothers Marx, on the other hand, always deliver. But who am I to give you advice?
