Colin just loves the Wii.
Colin tested. Herd approved. Here are Colin's top recommendations. (Newest ones at the top!)
Added April 27:
Thrilla in Manila:
Great documentary on HBO -- even if you don't like boxing.
Man on Wire
: As good a documentary as I have seen in my life.
Slum Dog Millionaire
: Great movie making. Very emotional.
: Bill Maher movie. Really makes you think.
You've seen the commercials. Does it really work? Yes, we tried it out live on the air in studio.
Great burger joint in Hartford, CT based out of California.
"An unbelieve show on drug smuggling. I could not believe what Miami was like in the '60s or '70s."
How not to use the drive-thru ATM
The HBO documentary
Dare to Dream
"Documentary on the Mia Hamm-led USA women's soccer team. I forgot how big this game was to the American women."
Any column by Norman Chad:
"He's the funniest guy in print and anytime you can read one of his columns, he always delivers. First ballot Hall of Famer."
"Great for exercising. Great fun with your kids and even adults.I recently played for two hours with my daughter and had a blast. I highly recommend the skiing and bowling games!"
"On Demand movie. An interesting 90-minute watch about the way we count votes in America."
"If you have nothing else to do, plan on spending two or three hours at this site."
from "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" on HBO: "Bring your tissues. This one is a tear-jerker. It really makes you evaluate what's important in life."
I only endorse products that I really use and there's nothing better than a great college football game in HD on a Vizio.
The Bank Job:
"I'm a sucker for British movies and this really delivers."
"UCLA Dynasty" (HBO special, on Demand):
"It's a well-crafted hour-long look at basketball, race, tensions over Vietnam on campus."
"Hotel in New York with two of my qualifications for hotel: a great gym and a bar."
"Three of my buddies said this was incredible."
Puffs tissues with Vicks:
Colin says it "was a Godsend for me during my recent sickness. I just put the tissue near my nose and my sinuses cleared up."
"The King of Kong - a Fist Full of Quarters:"
Colin calls it "a documentary by ESPN's own Ed Cunningham is thought provoking with a great story and great conflict."
The Oscar-nominated movie
As Colin puts it, an "intense, smart, thick plot. Great ending."
