Tuesdays With Lou


Before Dominic was born I was definitely happy. I have a great wife, a nice house, two good dogs, and a perfect job. I have a LOT to be thankful for. Almost every minute I spend with Dominic I’m smiling or laughing watching him play, jibber jab, and yes drool. I’m so amazed and proud watching him develop, that I can’t help but smile all the time. He made an already great life even better. Thanks Dominic for all the extra smiles!


This series with the Magic has me concerned but not worried. We have a mega star in Lebron and he showed us in game 2 that he can get us the win and despite his 40+ point outbursts in game 1 and 3 he still gave us a chance. Before he hit the game winner in game 2 I felt even if we lost you can’t count a Lebron James team out. So now, being down 2-1, I’m not going to let myself worry. Lebron is capable of anything and he can get this team to win this series.

Aside from Lebron’s no regard for human life, the Magic are good. They are a streaky 3 point shooting team that can put together a run quick. Teams like this live and die by it. I’m hoping they die by it. The Cavs are a better team that needs to close out on their shooters and if we can make it just slightly more difficult than it’s been we should have no problem getting back in this series and earning a right to play for the title.

Crime 360 & Obsessed

A&E is stepping up their game with original programming. With our regular shows over until the fall we’re forced to find new and different shows to watch. We recently discovered Crime 360 on A&E on Thursdays at 10:00pm. It’s a reality show that shows a homicide and then follows the detective through their process of figuring out who the murderer is. I’ve watched about 5 different episodes so far and 3 have been from Cleveland. We live about 30 minutes west of Cleveland so this has me slightly concerned.

Two good quote from the show, “There is nothing you’re going to tell me that I don’t already know.” “I wouldn’t have you here if I didn’t already know something” (quotes from Richmond Detective questioning a suspect). “What happened cause we have nothing unless you tell us something.” (quote from Cleveland Detective questioning a suspect). Again another reason I’m slightly concerned. Nice job Cleveland. This is a really interesting show and worth checking out. It’s amazing how they can re-inact the crime by putting together the clues. I highly suggest adding this show to your DVR at least for the summer months.

Last night was the season premier of Obsessed on A&E. It’s on Mondays at 9:00pm. I think most people have a little OCD in them but the people on this show put everything into perspective. They have SERIOUS problems and it’s very interesting seeing them go through the transition to eventually rid themselves of the compulsions. It’s amazing to see people live like this. I’m hoping this show can keep my interest a little longer than “Intervention” did. That too is a good show but gets kind of redundant.
