Entourage: Fitting Finale or Farewell Flop?

Jerry - Entourage.jpg
​I dunno, last Sunday night's finale to HBO's Entourage was a little too tidy for me. Vince finally got the girl. Eric was back with Sloan. Ari was reconciling with Mrs. Ari. Drama's show was a go and even Turtle was a trim, fit millionaire.

What the what?! 

I guess I prefer my break-ups/conclusions with a little more intrigue and, yes, reality. Life rarely arrives with a neat bow tied around it, and it shouldn't happen on my favorite TV shows. Like, maybe as they're toasting champagne en route to Italy how about the fancy jet suffers engine failure and as the plane plummets ...

Credits.

Enjoyed that show for eight years. Maybe I would have liked it better had creator/writer Doug Ellin gotten his original man for the lead role -- Vince Vaughan. But still, it had enough sex and sports to keep me entertained on Sunday nights.

The show's ending just left a taste in my mouth that was too sweet and sappy, like a heaping spoonful of sugar ladled with honey. I prefer the post-end to Seinfeld, where all four characters get off the subway and -- in lieu of some closure or hug -- just part ways with "Okay, see ya later."

Reflecting on Entourage, I was reminded of all the athletes who got cameos, including ...

Vitali Klitschko

Lennox Lewis

Lamar Odom

Bobby Knight

Chuck Liddell

Phil Mickelson

Michael Phelps

Tom Brady

Steve Nash

LeBron James

Jim Edmonds

Adrian Peterson

Shawn Merriman

Mike Tyson

Chris Bosh

Kevin Love

Brian Urlacher

Drew Brees

Jordan Farmar

Ryan Howard

Alex Rodriguez

Amare Stoudemire

Michael Strahan

Mark Teixeira

And, of course, our very own Jerry Jones and Mark Cuban.

RIP, Entourage. May your first movie be better than your last episode.

I'm wondering when the management at the Observer will figure out that they could get an intern to post pretty much any gibberish under the Sportatorium and the regulars on here would get them the same number of page views as the shit that Richie churns out...

A tremendous flop.  This whole season sucked.  Talk about mailing it in -- on all fronts.

What the what?  What the what?  What the what?  What the what?  What the what?This phrase isn't as clever as you think it is.  Especially if you use it 4-8 times a week.

Enough of this!  The answer is:

Richie's corn inflicted semi smooth (and lacy!) brown turd.

The answer is not:

-that smelly, puss infested puddle called the Trinity-John W. Price's woodshop glasses-David Moore's overly female voice-and most certainly not Olive Garden.

You listened to Rage-why?  Did the Ticket's signal go out?  I listened to rage, oh, about a month ago when the HL was on vacation; and man o' man, I mean to tell ya' (no offense), utter sh$t trash.  Greggo muttering aimlessly about nothing. Richie saying "what the what". And Sybil making guttural noises.  Holy f, it sounded like my kids playing announcer in the garage.  I wanted to stab my eyes out with a steak knife....but then I went to the Unticket. The station is unlistenable; accept for Arnie.  He has the same bit as me-making the locals pissed. Genius!

....and  he wonders why his radio show gets such crappy ratings. He wonders why the majority of the people who comment on his blog nutkick him and trash him. He's just not trying hard enough. He's lazy. A true hack.
