    The Voice

    Anyone watch it tonight?

    It was honestly better than I thought it would be. But I think the novelty will wear off once it gets to the coaching stage.

    I agree. After all the overpromotion, I really wanted to dislike it, but I found myself rooting for some of the contestants and really finding the whole idea intriguing.

    The different coaches add a different dynamic, and it will be interesting as they go on to see how that plays out. In a lot of ways there are almost too many things to keep track of, how many singers to each coach, the different elimination rounds, et al.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.

    I thought the bald headed dude that didn't make it was one of the best.

    I have never watched an entire episode of Idol, or any of those other shows since Star Search went off the air. I watched about 10 minutes of The Voice last night, and I was thoroughly unimpressed with everything except Cee Lo Green's shirt.

    I thought it was a good show. I am not really an Idol fan. I will be interesting how the coaches pan out. Will it be like sports when the best coaches are usually not the greatest players?

    Edited, misread your post. Loved the shirt.

    I didn't watch it, but I'm fairly sure I can smell Christina Aguilera from here.

    Ok, in all seriousness about the show, I think the idea has potential in judging people on voice talent and not the pre-packaged Idol like idea.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I have to admit, I got sucked into it. I won't be DVR'ing it or anything, but I found it much more interesting than Idol.

    I DVR'd it and I thought it was a great new outside-the-box idea.
