Grades for Monday

It’s true you never really stop being a teacher, even when you’re off duty. Hence my grade list from Monday night.

NCAA Championship Game: A- (minus for ending with the Luther Vandross version of “One Shining Moment”)

NCAA Championship Game winner: C+. Obviously I wanted Wisconsin to win more than I wanted Duke. Coach K winning his fifth championship? Kind of cool. That brought it up from a failing grade.

Season finale of Better Call SaulB-. It wasn’t as good as the season itself. There was no great aha moment, no cliffhanger, and although I usually enjoy the musical montages, Monday they were a bit overdone.

Sinatra: All or Nothing at AllA. This was the best of the lot. Good job, HBO, for entertaining a Sinatraphile (make that Sinatra snob) like me. The stories were well-worn but the rare and unusual still pictures and audio/video clips made the whole production top of the line. It really showed the man and his music and I can’t wait to watch it again. Well, a third time. I may have watched it again last night.

That is all.
