It’s criminal that The Newsroom ends this Sunday night. The HBO serial just got started in 2012. Seeing NBC pull the plug on “Friday Night Lights” was enough to drive one to tears, but at least you could take some solace in the fact that FNL went out on top. As sad and unjustified as it’s demise was, as least they gave you a chance to work through the five stages of grief. The Newsroom, on the other hand, is being put to bed while it’s still on an upward trajectory.
As for the Chicago Bulls..it’s becoming clear that their championship window will be closing sooner rather than later. They could reach the NBA Finals this year if Rose stays healthy. But beyond 2015, it’s obvious that the clock is ticking on this franchise as well.Follow paulmbanks
