I Have Seen The Light

As many of the readers know, Bubak is an avid television watcher. It has been previously documented on this very site that I have 74'' of HDTV housed at the crib with all the accouterments. With so much to watch (and so much to catch up on via DVR) it is not often that I venture into those channels that no non 50+ year old white man in checkered pants watches. Monday night happened to be one of those nights...THANK YOU GOD that it was, for I saw the greatest TV show ever created. Like any real red blooded American, I believed that when it came to golf on TV or film, no one could outdo Dorf.



America I am not ashamed to say we as a country were wrong, dead wrong. Like any other Monday night, I was sitting on the couch lounging when for some reason unbeknownst to Philo Farnsworth himself I turned to the Golf Channel. What happened next is the fourth best thing that has happened to me this year after marrying my beautiful bride, being a lifetime Sirius member, and going to MONSTERJAM. Monday nights at 9 pm est on the golf channel just became must see TV. The Haney Project might be the greatest idea an exec has ever had. I wont give you every gory detail because you really need to tune in, but I will leave you with these tidbits: Barkley is classic Barkley... congenial, fat, sweaty and utterly hilarious. You can see why the man got a DUI as he is best friends with a random bartender at a random steakhouse who does nothing but talk shit to the Chuckster about his golf game. Lastly, Neil Hartman makes a cameo...need I say more?

  1. On your recommendation I watched both episodes last night. One word: UNBELIEVABLE!! They could just show his golf swing with no dialogue for a half hour and I would be thoroughly satisfied, add in Charles being Charles and it is reality gold! One more thing: YOU HAVE A 74" TV? AMAZING!

  3. Still amazing. I have a tube TV. Hoping to buy something soon. Do you have LCD, or Plasma? Anyone have any recommendations?

  4. This sounds incredible, as I have mad love for Broccoli Head as I affectionately call him, but I'm sure that no show compares to the one that EDG and I stumbled on the other night on animal planet: Dark Days In Monkey City.

  5. While I was staying at the Quality Inn in Birmingham, Alabama- with no knowledge of this post I happened to catch a little bit of "The Haney Project". 1) When did Charles Barkley get so fat? 2) He is terrible at golf 3) I very much enjoyed watching a fat Barkley be terrible at golf:)

  6. I have both LCD (32") and Plasma(42"). I enjoy the plasma's picture a lili better, but fopr video game purposes you must go with the LCD. If you are a gamer, you gots to an LCD as a plas will get images "burned" into it.
