Reality is starting to kick in, folks. As much as we may not like to admit it, it's looking like we're not gonna see any pro hoops soon. Not sure about the rest of you, but one of the cornerstones of my winter is cuddling up on my couch and watching whatever NBA game is on, even if it's a snoozefest like Spurs-Warriors or something. So now we're left to scramble for quality winter entertainment. I've done some research into sports that I think can be quality basketball substitutes.

Want to own a piece of "Merlin" history? If you're a devoted fan of "Merlin," you might just recognize the prop in the photo above. If you don't, I can help--and offer you the opportunity to own it. It's a "competitor certificate" that explains the holder has been invited by King Uther Pendragon (Anthony Head) to compete in the Decennial Tournament in Camelot, which is held once every decade. The certificate appeared in "The Sorcerer's Shadow," the 11th episode of Season 3, in which Gilli, a young warlock played by Harry Melling (Dudley Dursley in the "Harry Potter"...

Having my own Cheers-like hangout seemed like one of those cool things you get to do when you become a grown-up.

" "I've had it for most of my life," Washington said during a recent press conference at Montage in Beverly Hills. "I somehow always end up near the city and I go underneath bridges and I'd stay under them. The other part of the dream is I just take off forever. I don't know what it means!" When you're a two-time Oscar winner who is whipping up buzz for playing a commercial airline pilot with addiction issues,...

Hey college grads, are you fed up because you paid all that money for a degree and can't use it because the job market is saturated? Are you thinking about the 20-something Hail Mary pass of grad school because you don't know what else to do? Maybe you don't have to. Instead of diving deeper into college debt, let me present another option: the restaurant industry. I know, you're all thinking something like, "But I have a degree in business/philosophy/sandwiches! I'm gonna do bigger things than wait tables!"

The city of Denver Colorado is known for many things: John Elway, the Rocky Mountains, beer, and legalized marijuana. But soon they'll be known as the home of a top-notch comic convention if the folks behind the Denver Comic-Con can keep up with the demand. Running from May 31 - June 2, the Denver Comic Con attracted fans from all over the region. When I attended the show last year, they had an attendance of 28,000 people, and this year it almost doubled! On the first day, lines stretched around the Colorado Convention Center ...
