News about Girl Meets World is coming in at such record pace that we can’t until Good Friday for the latest update. Not only is this because there’s so much quantity of news and pictures coming in from the set, but because of the utmost QUALITY OF THE NEWS WE HAVE TO SHARE WITH YOU TODAY!

Ok, I’m in. But since I don’t have 13 hours to spend on a show I’m not watching with my wife, I have to wait until the opportune moment. Cold virus ravaging our bodies and making it impossible to move any more than is necessary to pay the pizza guy and keep the kids alive (same thing)? That’ll do. Read more

Since the new era of Feeny Friday has begun with our in-depth look at the production of Girl Meets World and campaign to bring back Feeny to give us more wisdom, we here at The Wise Guise have been staying up to date. And there are a number of things we’ve learned. As Adele might say, rumor has it that production has begun on the pilot episode of Girl Meets World. And, although the radar remains relatively silent on Feeny’s return, we have learned a lot. And there’s greater hope for Uncle Eric & Uncle Shawn to show up than ever before!
Without further ado, I present…

There is a particularly famous episode of Seinfeld in which Jerry sees a painted portrait of Kramer (called, um, “The Kramer”) and remarks:
“He’s a loathsome, offensive brute. Yet I can’t look away”.
Perhaps there is no better description of the national sentiment towards Ole Miss shooting guard Marshall Henderson. Read more
Wikki Wikki Wild Wild West! Now… time for some real fun. First, here were my predictions from a November 2nd blog post previewing the West: Read more
People are always coming up to me and being like, “Clayton, you have such an amazing taste in music. Why don’t you focus your writing on music?” I like to consider myself much like Justin Timberlake in that I dabble in music, but my talents are too broad to contain.
OK. None of that is true, but in case you haven’t heard, JT released a new album yesterday called The 20/20 Experience. I’m here to give you my initial reaction and a power ranking of the tracks on JT’s return home to his “first talent.”
At the beginning of the NBA season I wrote a post on this blog with my predictions for each conference. In that post on November 1st, here’s where I had the Eastern Conference: Read more
Football has the Super Bowl, film has the Academy Awards and for those of us who grew up fans of the lucrative world of sports entertainment that is WWE, professional wrestling has WrestleMania.
The once-a-year spectacle has played host to some of the greatest moments in the company’s history. Every spring, followers of Vince McMahon’s brainchild are treated to an almost religious experience of high-profile matches and celebrity appearances.
This year, WrestleMania will celebrate its 29th anniversary from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, an occurrence WWE is promoting as a homecoming of sorts given the New York metropolitan area was the location for the first WrestleMania and two of them since. In honor of this, I bring to you my personal list of the top 29 most significant moments in the show’s history. Read more
As we recently learned from the commercial ESPN that is sure to air nonstop for the next few weeks, obsessing over your bracket is purely patriotic. Seeing as I’m a patriot, I’ve decided to share my bracket with you all today.

I’m sure some of these may change as I continue to stare at and make little tweaks to my bracket, but these picks I’m about to share give you a good indication of what I’m thinking. You should also be able to click on the bracket above to print out a blank bracket to fill in for yourself. I’m a big fan of the traditional handwritten bracket. It’s way more fun that way. Read more
