We watch... so you don't have to.

Yesterday's Erroneous Predictions Today

As I type this sentence, Frasier is leaving the airwaves. I don't intend this to be a eulogy for the show because, while I recognize the show's quality, I haven't watched it in years, and, really, I wrote that piece last week.

Instead, I'd like to pass along something occasional Vidiot David Burkhart just reminded me of -- a conversation we had more than a decade ago over beer and ribs at a downtown San Diego eatery. As Dave remembers -- and really, I'm in no position to dispute him -- I swore vehemently that the planned Cheers spin-off starring Kelsey Grammer wouldn't last three episodes. The AfterM*A*S*H* of the 1990s, I think I predicted.

Or to put it another way, why do you people even waste your time reading the nonsense I spew, since I'm clearly wrong about everything?
