CBS Sports Football Analyst & Former Executive Amy Trask Speaks On Former Raiders Owner Al Davis, Front Office Philosophies And More (Video)
Fix your offensive line first… Now that’s an exec (not an armchair QB, or some think-they-know-it-all) talking! Heed the words of Amy Trask. Because RAIDER NATION, and because she really makes sense. Of course, decades experience with the organization and Rich Eisen even having her on the show to talk about football, late owner Al Davis, various organizational strategies and more. Host Eisen plugs the book (“You Negotiate Like A Girl”), too, of course.
Fantastic discussion. Smart. You’ll feel informed and kind of part of the conversation. Watch.
(Watch her answer to Rich on the probability of a ‘Las Vegas’ Raiders though…)
Okay, it would have been nice to get some dope backstage looks before the big ATCQ Saturday Night Live performance tonight. But we don’t have that. Oprah’s ol’ bestie Gayle got some other true behind-the-scenes stuff for us to watch while we wait though.
As A Tribe Called Quest releases “We Got It From Here… Thank You 4 Your Service,” its final album after an 18-year break, Gayle King gets a tour of Q-Tip’s home studio in New Jersey.
ALERT: We have a Statik Selektah sighting. Stat Diddy is in the building! Plus, there’s more of the Gayle–Tip tour after the jump.
Gayle King Gets Stops By Q-Tip’s Home To Get The 4-1-1 On “…Thank You 4 Your Service” And More (Video)
Looking back always provides more insight. Watch as Q-Tip bears that truth out yet again. He tells Gayle King all about the coming up of A Tribe Called Quest, a lifelong friendship with Phife Dawg and much more. Jammed into such a short clip. Got the album that just dropped, and they have a live performance on NBC’s Saturday Night Live. It’s an ATCQ weekend!!
Eddie Huang aka The Human Panda Talks About Identity And Chews The Pork Fat With Stephen Colbert (Video)
Good stuff. We knew Eddie when he was “Fresh Off The Boat” with VICE. Now, he’s with ABC… still “Fresh…” But he has not forgotten where he came from – Taiwan or online – and he is going back (to VICELAND with a new show, “Huang’s World”). Watch Eddie talking with Stephen Colbert above and after the jump about all kinds of stuff – like them delicious-looking pork buns.
Well. If ANYBODY can speak on it, former Philly football beast QB Donovan McNabb can. And he’s talking to Tiki and Tierney on CBS Radio. Plainly spoken, straightforward, honest, real. What T.O.’s former teammate has to say about him may or may not sit well, but you can tell he’s speaking his truth… about Owens, Cam Superman, his own time in the League… so much.
(Interesting take on Cam and that Super Bowl fumble.)
Add another comic-brought-to-life to your channel-surfing agenda. CBS has green-lit the “Supergirl” television series for this Fall. DC Comics character Supergirl is Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El. On the show she’ll be challenged mastering her superhuman abilities and navigating the day-to-day world. Not too groundbreaking in that regard, but looking at the 6+ minute trailer above, CBS is sinking major chips into the hero party. So there better be a huge crowd (e.g. TV audience) tuning in to see the show. Heard good things about the other comic-based shows – The Flash and [Green] Arrow on The CW, even Daredevil on Netflix. However, Supergirl has to be much bigger; (at least) be on par with Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – on rival major broadcast network ABC. We will see. But for now… see the trailer.
(And before someone brings up Gotham on Fox… Sure, it’s based on DC’s Batman; but that’s a pre-Batman story. Doesn’t count yet.)
Snoop Dogg was up for another Grammy (as Snoop Lion this year), but this CBS morning show expo shows him in a different light that’s so gangsta in a good way. Nearly 20 years of married life, loving and coaching the kids, no longer toting a gat, and visiting the White House on top of all that. Watch the above vid for that and more. It’ll make you proud of the Dogg Father. On some grown man ish.
