Lego Ninjago Season 6 Poster Reveals New Ships, Villains and Other Secrets

The Lego Group is slowly taking the wraps off of Lego Ninjago Season 6 and earlier today delivered a gift that keeps on giving the more you look at it.

Below you will find the first official Lego Ninjago Season 6 poster featuring Jay with a possible eye patch, Lloyd and Zane taking on a host of sky pirates with nefarious intentions. I would expect everything you see in this image to be released next March in Lego toy form, and official images of those toys to come online sooner rather than later.

The four-armed pirate genie-from-a-bottle and flaming sword bearing Kai's face on its hilt is Nadakhan, or as Lego Ninjago writers Brothers Hageman refer to him, "Nadagoodguy." His troop of motley villains pictured include a hardcore Dennis Eckersley fan, a monkey with appropriately a wrench, a peg leg Serpentine hoisting a pirate flag, and some sort of possibly un-dead fella

Keith Olbermann to host TBS' Mlb postseason coverage

Keith Olbermann is getting away from politics for the time being and to dive back into the world of baseball. Turner Sports announced that Olbermann will be joining TBS' Major League Baseball postseason studio show. Also taking part in the show will be Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley.

This is familiar ground for Olbermann, who hosted similar postseason baseball shows on NBC and Fox in the 1990s. As for whether he will one day return to politics, Olbermann said in a conference call that he has "absolutely no idea where my career is going. I have certainly learned not to make any predictions."

"Baseball is my passion," Olbermann said. "On a professional level, this is great for me because it's what I do. I did this at home to the TV by myself. Now there will be people watching. I'll get paid for it and I get to wear

Keith Olbermann To Anchor TBS Baseball Playoff Show

Keith Olbermann To Anchor TBS Baseball Playoff Show
Keith Olbermann’s zig-zagging path between pointed political commentary and the toy department of sports zips over to TBS this fall, where he will be the host of the cabler’s Major League Baseball postseason studio show.

I’m a fan of Olbermann on sports, dating back to his days on local news in Los Angeles and of course including his Espn “SportsCenter” heyday, and expect that he’ll be worth watching on TBS in October. This is someone who worships baseball, has a studied appreciation of its history but isn’t so closeminded to block out the lessons of the modern statistical age.

“It’s well known that Keith is a fan of the game, and when you combine that with his studio experience, keen insight and passion for baseball and its history, he’ll add a new dimension to our Mlb postseason studio shows,” said Turner president of sales,

Keith Olbermann to host Turner Sports baseball show
Keith Olbermann is getting back into broadcasting.

Turner Sports said Wednesday that it is hiring Olbermann to host its baseball studio show for the postseason. He will team with Hall of Fame pitcher Dennis Eckersley.

Olbermann most recently did a political show at Current TV before he had a falling-out with his bosses. While generally acknowledged to be a smart and witty broadcaster, off-screen battles with executives have kept him jumping to different jobs.

Olbermann was a postseason baseball studio host at both NBC and Fox more than a decade ago.

Detroit Tigers’ Pitching Ace Justin Verlander To Make Major Announcement on ‘Conan’

This past baseball season, there was no one who threw the heat quite like Justin Verlander. He won the Cy Young Award and became the first pitcher to win the Mvp award since Oakland’s Dennis Eckersley did in 1992 and the first starting pitcher to win since Roger Clemens in 1986. He finished 2011 with a career-best 24-5 record for the Detroit Tigers with a 2.40 Era and 250 strikeouts.

For major league gamers, Verlander landed the cover of Mlb 2K12 and will appear on tonight’s Conan O’Brien’s late night TBS talk show. 2K Sports announced that Verlander will make “a special announcement” during his appearance, which we’ll speculate is either revealing the cover art of the game – something that Verlander has already done on his Twitter – or that 2K Sports will continue their one million dollar giveaway to the first person to pitch a perfect game (a successful promotion

Why the Lakers' Phil Jackson Is Overrated

He's a media creation in a business where coaches add very little. Buzz Bissinger on why the Zen Master bears some blame for the Lakers' spectacular collapse.

And now, as the great Zen Master Phil Jackson walks down the rose-covered road into retirement, let us meditate on the most overrated position in all of sports: the Coach.

Related story on The Daily Beast: Mark Cuban Shoots Straight

Reams have been written on the Coach-his X-and-o genius, his ability to motivate in the locker room (do you think there is a single player who hasn't heard a variation of that speech a thousand times before?).

Do coaches make a significant difference? They do in college football and basketball, not because of anything they do on the hardwood or gridiron, but because of their ability to recruit with or without intermediaries to deliver the cash.

Parks and Recreation Review: Making Like Mj

  • TVfanatic
Warning to all Parks and Recreation viewers: the microchip has been compromised! We repeat: the microchip has been compromised!

Fortunately, it looks like Chris and his 2.8% body fat will be okay following events in "Flu Season," which turned this sweaty, fever-inducing illness into the funniest malady of the year.

One of the perks of Parks is how it's done such a great job grounding it's seemingly ridiculous characters. Chris might come across as over-the-top and irritating, but all it took was one story last week about the basis behind his personality for viewers (and Ann) to understand where he's coming from.

If you were told you'd never live to see this age, wouldn't you also hilariously yell "Way to go, buddy!" at fellow hospital patients? I loved that.

Similarly, Amy Poehler could have played an overly medicated Leslie for slapstick comedy, but there's a reason Ben found himself attracted to

Parks and Recreation 3.02 "The Flu" Review

"The time is now. The place is Pawnee. Let's make history."

Upon rewatching last week's episode of Parks and Recreation it almost felt like a second pilot episode, though you'd be hard pressed to find a better and funnier pilot. I thought it was a great (re)introduction to the fantastic ensemble. This is now the third season of the show, but with the show in a new timeslot, there was a feeling in the air like this was a new beginning, and the show delivered on all fronts. Those of us who were already fans were delighted to see the characters we love back on our televisions, and the healthy Office lead-in undoubtedly got some new viewers on board with the Pawnee gang.

This week, the flu strikes Pawnee, but not even the flu could stop the laughs. April being in the hospital forces her and Ann to interact all day,
