Whew what a game! Hopefully you like sports cause that’s what this episode is all about.  Q, Mike, SquareRoss and the return of ShadyTheBiker talk all about the Big Game this last weekend. That’s right, football baby! The crew jumps right in to discuss the best and worst ads including many animal related ones which I thought wasn’t as good as the rest of the crew.  We make some comparisons to last years ads vs this year.  Mike and I talk about how much reach some ads have had after the fact, in particular the Best Buy phone technology ad. Which encouraged people to go further after the fact to the brands site (Extended commercial and interviews here).

The crew also tackles some past sports history , Ads from past years, The puppy bowl and the always interesting entertainment that always accompanies the middle of the game.

We hope you enjoy listening and we would love to hear back from you. Feel free to join the conversation on twitter via @entfortherest you can also find the crew on twitter: Q (@aka_q), Mike (@cb_robinson), Shady (@ShadyTheBiker) and me SquareRoss (@SquareRoss).

EftRoU - Media Mogul

The new segment that I alluded to above is called EftRoU Media Mogul Fantasy League. We plan on having four seasons each year of the league and the point is to see who know more about media. Each of us will pick from movies, TV shows, video games and new DVDs. During this segment we kicked off with the first two rounds of the Media Mogul draft. In the first round Mike picked The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1, Shady’s pick was Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Square Ross went with The Muppets, and I picked Battlefield 3. Listen in to see what else we pick in round two. We will also post all our other picks in a later plus the results spreadsheet for the world to see. Look for that to come later.

Feature Flick:

Ides of March movie

Cross Creek Pictures

The Ides of March stars George Clooney, not only does he star in this movie he also directors it and did some writing. The Ides of March is based on the play “Farragut North” by Beau Willimon. It’s about a dreamy campaign staffer for a new presidential candidate who receives a crash course about dirty politics. Other stars in The Ides of March include Ryan Gosling, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Paul Giamatti, Marisa Tomei, Jeffrey Wright and Evan Rachel Wood. Listen in and see what we think of this movie. After you hear our thoughts tell us what you think by leaving a comment.

Thanks again for stopping by and listening to the show. Be sure to tell your friends and family. See you again next week!

EftRoU 98a: hockey can be entertaining…

As most of you know I am a big fan of hockey and I watch the Avalanche on TV when ever I can find the time. I used to go to at least 6 games a year back in the day until it just became to cost prohibitive for me and The Moderator. We love watching hockey and find it to be a great form of entertainment.

Hockey All Star Game

2011 NHL All Star logo

So for those of you out there that are not hockey fans or have not every really watched hockey before this is my plea to say, “You got to give it a chance!” This weekend January 28-30, 2011 you can check out the All Star game on Versus, check your local listings for time and channel.

In an effort to help introduce the EftRoU audience to this years NHL All Stars I invent my friend Tapeleg from the Rink Podcast. That’s right I said Tapeleg, from www.rinkpodcast.com. Tapeleg and I record a special episode to discuss what we think of hockey as a whole as well as the new twist that the NHL has put on this year’s All Star game.

Listen in and then let us know if we made you into a hockey fan or at least curious about the game. Or if you’re already a fan let us know what you think of this years All Star game format.
