No American Idol Tonight

President Obama will be addressing the nation tonight, therefore we will have to wait another day to enjoy the top 10's take on Motown. Idol will not be on tonight, and instead it will air on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

Ordinarily this would piss me off, but not this time. This week is different because my girlfriend is coming to spend a few days with me tomorrow. We were anticipating watching the results show together for the first time, but now we get to spend performance night together as well. She is a bigger Idol junkie than I am, so I'll let her handle the voting responsibilities.

Then after the Thursday night results show (I'll have to miss The Office this week, but hey, that's what Hulu.com is for, right?), its Mizzou vs Memphis in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA basketball tournament. This one scares me...Memphis is a great team and while I have all the faith in the world in the abilities of the Mizzou players, they have choked twice on the national stage this year. Against Illinois back in December when they were ranked 25th (for the 1st time in several years) and just before the end of the regular season at Kansas when 1st place in the conference was on the line. Which Mizzou will show up on Thursday night in Arizona is anybody's guess, but I'm sure it will be a great game!
