The Goldbergs Debuts on Television January 1949

There seems to be a debate as to when The Goldbergs made its television debut on the NBC network.  The split is between January 10th and January 17th of 1949.  Whatever date the show actually debuted that was not the beginning of the story of The Goldbergs.  The Story of the Goldbergs starts at the turn of the 18th into the 19th century and is both joyful, exciting, and tragic.

Five Fave: New York Jets 2021 Bold Predictions

The 2020 New York Jets football team is awful, historically awful. In a record-setting season for scoring points, where quarterbacks routinely throw 4 touchdowns in a single game, the Jets, led by an alleged offensive guru in Adam “Crazy Eyes” Gase, only managed to throw 4 TD’s total in their first 8 games. Amidst talk of “Tanking for Trevor”, the Jets have recently managed to blow leads against the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders …
