- Yesterday I mentioned that ‘Supergirl’ has David Harewood playing a stingy government official and used to be in ‘Homeland’. Yesterday I learned the actress that plays Supergirl has a memorable nude scene in ‘Homeland’. Though it doesn’t bother me, I’m surprised CBS would cast someone that has appeared nude on screen for a character who is supposed to have a wholesome image and set to be a positive influence on young girls.
- I’m really amazed at how much Rick Carlisle has lightened up over the years. He used to be so grumpy he’d come off as a jerk, especially on The TICKET. He still has an edge to him, but it’s nice to hear him actually joke around with Norm and Donny. Carlisle really won me over when he attended a 30-year-old fan’s funeral. There are talks he’ll sign an extension with the Mavs, which surprises me. He’s a great coach our city is lucky to have, but it has to frustrate him to no end with the roster he gets every year.
