PICK OF THE NIGHT
Any Given Wednesday With Bill Simmons

Whether or not you like sports, you may very well like Bill Simmons. And even if you do like sports, you may very well hate Bill Simmons. Or maybe, just maybe, you don’t know who this guy is at all. Well, I’ll go out on a limb and say that no matter which above camp you’re in, you’ll at least be intrigued by what his new sports and culture talk show on HBO will be like. Plus: His ol’ Boston buddy Ben Affleck will be a guest, as will NBA dude Charles Barkley — so that’s something!
