Sandcastles in the Sand
The whole world, from Alberta to Ontario, feels Robin Sparkle's pain. Robin's teen idol alter ego makes another appearance in tonight's episode of How I Met Your Mother. The former Canadian pop star shares the story of how her first boyfriend, Simon, (played by James Van Der Beek) broke up with her after a week and a half of bliss. Simon waits until Robin loads up his van after one of his band gigs to tell her he's getting back together with an old girlfriend. Needless to say, we get an earful of the Canada jokes ("So he just wasn't Inuit?"), as the gang tries to understand why she's STILL in love with the Beek, when he now looks like a middle-aged farmer with a beer belly. In case anyone's wondering, apparently it's a serious form of associative regression, or as Marshall calls it- "revertigo". heh.
So, because Robin is not a student of history, she agrees to go out on a date with Simon again, and pays the price with a massive case of deja vu. Simon breaks up with her AGAIN right after one of his gigs just as she's loading his van with musical equipment.
So, um, Robin is sad. And like a moth to flame, the Barnacle smells the tears of a desperate woman from a mile away. OK, so it didn't quite go down like that, but Barney goes through the unlikely task of comforting Robin. And Miss Sparkles rewards Barney with the greatest gift of all- the music video of her B-side- "Sandcastles in the Sand." Barney's best line of the night: "If you edit this, you've got a tampon commercial in there." heh.
And now, the kicker. Robin honors him with the second best gift of the night: a kiss and most likely...more. Personally, I'm excited about the exponential awesomeness of coupling these laser tag and cigar buddies. But how do you feel? Share your thoughts below.

Friday Night Lights- Next Season is ONLY 13 eps
As for the cast, they will all be back for next year's season. Gotta be happy about that, but no hope for a back 9 sorta makes this all so bittersweet.

NKOTB is taking it Step by Step!
The guys talked about their reunion performance on the Today Show May 16th, a new album out this summer and a tour this fall. And so, there you have it. Off to sleep, my little muffins, with visions of Jordan crooning and Joey dancing in your heads.
So, I have been remiss with the How I Met Your Mother recap from this week's ep, The Bracket, but only because I just wanted to savor every delicious moment from the show. From the ode to March Madness with Barney's bracket of wronged ladies to the Doogie homage, I teared up from this show's brilliance. As much as Barney acts like a major slimeball with his horrible one-night stand stories, I just can't seem to hate this fellow blogger. In Monday's episode, we followed Barney as he tried to figure who the mystery girl messing up his game was. We revisited his past, from Meg, the apartment girl, to Anna, the tedmosbyisajerk girl. And, you gotta love the creative force behind this show! Be sure to check tedmosbyisajerk.com, and be prepared to be awed at its genius. And after all that, what did we learn about this mystery girl? She's blonde. That's pretty much all we got, but damn was it a fun ride.

Is Pat Sajak Bald?!?!?!
This is either the best April Fool's joke I've seen in a while, or Pat Sajak is really bald! The Wheel of Fortune host unveiled his Telly Savalas look during the April 1st episode of the game show. I can't tell if Vanna's surprise is legit or part of an elaborate hoax. Either way, I salute the hosts for this head-scratching moment!
