This weekend marks the beginning of Shark Week, 2016 on Discovery Channel. And given that, I could post a bunch of highlights or a promo or something. But not when I can post the best treatment of Shark Week in the history of entertainment available to us. Dale and Brendan’s epic make up from “Step Brothers.” Because nothing brings people together like Shark Week.

Just remember that all the stuff they’ll be feeding us about scientific research, saving the world’s oceans or protecting endangered species is all just crap. We watch because it’s fun to watch sharks eat seals. Period.

Glenn and Christian discuss last night's underwhelming draft by the Celtics
No One is safe from OMF's Whiner Line

Tom Jones, Tampa Bay TimesIt took Batman to convince me. The worst Batman.  …

Ben Affleck — a good actor but a crummier Batman than Val Kilmer and even Adam West — went on Simmons’ show and took a sledgehammer to the NFL over its handling of Deflategate. …

Affleck’s mad-as-hell-and-I’m-not-going-to-take-it-anymore harangue was over the top, biased, profane and outrageous. I kept waiting for the men in the white coats to rush in with a straitjacket. Yet Affleck was spot-on. …

The rantings of a madman? Maybe. The passionate speech of a dedicated fan? Absolutely.

But that doesn’t mean he is wrong. …

And that is the crux of the issue right there. It is Goodell’s ego that is getting in the way. It is his ego that won’t allow him to let it go, to just move on. …

[T]he NFL doesn’t want to lose. It doesn’t want Brady suspended because justice would then be served. It wants Brady out because its egomaniacal minds cannot stand the thought of losing to those equally egomaniacal Patriots. …

He’s right. The NFL is wrong. I was wrong.

I’ve finally seen the light. It’s as plain as the Bat Signal.

I’ll be honest with you. When I first started reading this and Tom Jones started throwing hella shade at the great Adam West, I just assumed he was the worst kind of trolling, clueless hack. Blind to the obvious talents of Mr. West, blind to the colossal stupidity of the NFL’s crusade against the Patriots on Deflategate.

And no sooner had I braced myself for his case against Ben Affleck and Tom Brady that he threw me completely for a loop. The guy confesses to being a devout Deflategate Truther and an anti-Patriots zealot, then admits Batfleck changed his mind. Seriously. I had to read the column twice and scan it for sarcasm, and I found none. Which means that Affleck’s profane (and drunken, if you believe the Internet buzz) tirade actually won hearts and minds.

Granted, I would have preferred guys like this changed their minds due to evidence, logic, what we know about the NFL’s way of handling things and middle school science instead of what Oscar winners tell them on premium cable. But it’s not about arriving at the destination, not how you got there. If Ben Affleck can use his bully pulpit to sway people to the cause of justice, it’s a pure good. And proves actors can be role models.

But no more hating on Adam West. The man is a treasure.
