Melissa Joan Hart is going to explain it all again...this time about working moms. Motor City Masters is a brand new reality competition series on truTV produced by Bunim/Murray Productions in collaboration with Chevrolet. In search of America's next great car designer, each week contestants will be judged on their creativity, execution and forward-thinking design until only two designers remain. These finalists will face off and only one will be crowned the "Motor City Master". The winner of Motor City Masters will receive a brand new 2014 Camaro Z28, $100,000 cash and be named a Brand Ambassador for GM. Along with the talented group of contestants, Motor City Masters also features a star-studded slate of guest judges including actor Jesse Metcalfe (Dallas, Desperate Housewives), Fall Out Boy bassist Pete Wentz, baseball great David Justice and model and surfer Malia Jones. This week, actress and producer Melissa Joan Hart (Melissa & Joey, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Clarissa Explains It All) takes the stage to help offer insight on the wants and needs of the working mom.

TV NEWS JULY 28

http://blog.sitcomsonline.com/2014/07/fx-fall-2014-mike-molly-reruns-premiere.html

As we announced a few years ago, reruns of Mike & Molly are coming to FX in Fall 2014! Now we have some additional details! The series will begin with a Labor Day marathon on Monday, September 1, 2014 from 12 noon to 9pm ET leading into the one-hour season finale of Partners, starring Kelsey Grammer and Martin Lawrence at 9. Back to Mike & Molly, the Melissa McCarthy sitcom will join the regular schedule a few weeks later beginning Tuesday, Sept. 23. Like, Two and a Half Men and How I Met Your Mother, it will air in stacks in late afternoons, primetime and late night. No set times or anything, but in the first week look for it to air 5:30pm-7:30pm on Tuesday and Wednesday, 6-10pm on Thursday and 11pm-2am on Saturday night. Mike & Molly will also premiere in local broadcast syndication this fall beginning Sept. 22. No other additions or changes are being made to FX in September, so you can still expect to see Men, Mother and FX's other series: Anger Management, Ellen and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. And don't forget sister network FXX will launch The Simpsons with the longest TV marathon ever! More to come on that soon, like its normal timeslots.

ESPN Signs Seven Year Deal to Continue Airing the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony

http://fangsbites.com/espn/espn-signs-seven-year-deal-to-continue-airing-the-pro-football-hall-of-fame-enshrinement-ceremony.html

One of ESPN’s signature events leading into the NFL season, the Pro Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony, will continue to be on the Alleged Worldwide Leader through 2020. A new seven year deal was announced today.
For the first time, ESPN will pay a rights fee to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The network has been airing the Enshrinement Ceremony from Canton, OH since 1995.
Chris Berman will emcee this year’s event and Trey Wingo will host as it will air live Saturday, August 2 at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. This year’s class includes Derrick Brooks, Ray Guy, Claude Humphrey, Andre Reed and Michael Strahan.

In great company on the Dieruff Hall of Fame wall

http://blogs.mcall.com/groller/

FROM KEITH GROLLER

Found out recently that my Hall of Fame plaque has been put up on the wall at Dieruff High School and I am in good company.
Turns out my plaque is right underneath Andre Reed's. Reed, you might have heard, is going into another Hall of Fame this weekend. Me and Reed
There you have perhaps the most famous Dieruff alum ever above someone whose athletic contribution to the school was a career record of 15-45 in tennis.
Ah well. Being inducted into my alma mater's Hall of Fame is something that will forever be very special to me, and certainly that night, May 21, is one I will never forget.
Never expected it. And I definitely did not expect the standing ovation when I was introduced.
Biggest surprise? Even my own family got up and applauded. They know all too well I am not exactly a Hall of Famer at home.
I owe a big thank you to Paulette Kish (seen with me below) who went to bat for me on this honor. I know there were a lot of people who never thought I belonged, and they may be right. But Paulette thought differently and for that, I will forever be grateful. To be one of just 69 Hall of Famers in Dieruff's proud 55-year history. Wow. Quite humbling.
Talk about being in great company and talk about a big weekend ahead in Canton.
We're working on some feature stories, previewing what should be one of the biggest weekends in Lehigh Valley sports history.
It's certainly one of the biggest weeks in Dieruff High School and Allentown history.
I don't know if my friends below are going to Canton, but I have a feeling that these members of the Kiska family will be there in spirit.
Having the only true live mascots in the area is a source of pride for Dieruff graduates.
After all, you can't pet a Canary, can you? July 28, 2014 download 003
By the way, a Andre Reed: A Football Life premieres on the NFL Network Thursday night at 10 p.m. It should offer quite a few insights on how someome who grew up in some rough Allentown neighborhoods has made it into the Hall of Fame of America's most popular sport.

First Take’s Opening Segment on Stephen A. Smith’s Comments on Domestic Violence

On Friday’s edition of First Take on ESPN2, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless were discussing the NFL’s two-game suspension of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice when for some reason, Smith said women should do their best not to provoke violence:

Boys of Summer Player of the Week: Northwestern grad Mike Fignar

http://blogs.mcall.com/groller/

FROM KEITH GROLLER

From Sunday's print edition of The Morning Call, the Boys of Summer Player of the Week -- Mike Fignar of the Northern Yankees. Mike is a Northwestern Lehigh and King's College product:
MIKE FIGNAR, NORTHERN YANKEES
A change in job shifts for Mike Fignar has resulted in a change in fortunes for the Northern Yankees in the Blue Mountain League.
Fignar used to be on middle shift at Mack Trucks in Lower Macungie and could only make weekend games, but halfway through the baseball season he was shifted to daytime hours. That opened his nights up for the Yankees. Mike Fignar
He has made the most of that extra time, helping the team go on a six-game win streak that allowed the former Tri-County League member to secure the No. 2 seed in its first Blue Mountain League postseason.
Fignar is hitting .333 overall, but was 9-for-20 with two walks and six runs scored during the Yankees’ hot streak and has made a big difference for the Scherersville team.
“He does a great job patrolling center field and is another big bat for us in the middle of our order,” Yankees manager Brian Polaha said. “He runs well, has some pop and has been a big stabilizing factor for us.”
Fignar, a fixture on the Yankees’ 2011 and ’12 Tri-Co title teams, said the regular playing stints have been helpful for him to helped him find a rhythm at the plate.
“I’m not a college kid anymore, so it doesn’t hurt to get more reps and be able to be here all the time,” the 2007 Northwestern Lehigh grad and King’s College product said. “I don’t like tooting my own horn. I am just happy to help out and be with such a good group of guys.”

Sunday!

Blue Mountain League baseball playoffs set to begin on Saturday

http://blogs.mcall.com/groller/

FROM KEITH GROLLER

A wild game tonight in Egypt where the Northern Yankees rallied for five runs in the top of the seventh inning to defeat the MetLife Orioles 6-5 finalized the playoff picture in the Blue Mountain League.
Most stunning is the fact that the Hellertown Royals, the Easton Falcons and the Orioles -- three of the four BML playoff teams last year -- failed to qualify. Defending champ Marins Creek did make it, but just barely.
Hellertown had made the playoffs for 13 consecutive years.
One of the most balanced seasons in the amateur league in years ended with the two newcomers from the Tri-County League, the Northern Yankees and Limeport Bulls, earning the second and third seeds.
The Northampton Giants, just 11-20-1 last season, clinched the top seed. The Northern Yankees, Tri-Co champs in 2011 and 2012, earned the No. 2 seed.
The other four playoff teams will begin best-of-three series today, but the inavailability of Limeport Stadium because of the state Connie Mack tournament has forced different venues to be used.
The No. 6 seed Blue Mountain Hawks will play the No. 3 Limeport Bulls, the other former Tri-
Co team, at 1:30 at Emmaus Community Park.
No. 5 seed Martins Creek will play No. 4 Limeport Dodgers at 1:30 at Hellertown's Dimmick Park.
In Games 2 on Sunday, the Dodgers will play at Martins Creek at 1:30 and the Limeport Bulls will play at Blue Mountain at Laurys Station.
Games 3, if needed, would be played on Tuesday with the semifinals set to start on Thursday night with the Giants and Yankees set to host Game 1s. The playoffs are expected to continue through Aug. 16.
Here's a look at the standings after tonight's games:
BLUE MOUNTAIN LEAGUE
No. 1 seed -- Northampton Giants 18-11-1
No. 2 seed -- Northern Yankees 17-11-2
No. 3 seed -- Limeport Bulls 16-12-2
No. 4 seed -- Limeport Dodgers 16-14
No. 5 seed -- Martins Creek 15-13-2
No. 6 seed -- Blue Mountain Hawks 15-14-1
Hellertown Royals 15-15
Metlife Orioles 14-15-1
Easton Falcons 11-17-2
Roseto Bandits 10-18-2
Berlinsville Braves 11-19
