Whatever edition of "Real Housewives" is on Bravo (as long as it's not the Miami one).

Has to be Duke-North Carolina right? 

Can never go wrong with the classics, i.e. the tie. Whereas a bowtie, bolo, etc. on the wrong subject can resemble straight up foolery.

Game On Dude IF he wins the Breeders' Cup Classic.

Can't wait for Season 4 of "The Walking Dead" on AMC. Perhaps a bit gruesome at times, but the storyline is incredibly gripping, especially if you have followed the show from the beginning.  

Personally, I have to go with the University of Kentucky vs. the University of Louisville. I am a Kentucky native, a Lexington resident and a UK Law graduate who lived in Louisville for many years, so I know first-hand the passion on both sides, regardless of the sport.  

Having rarely, if ever, worn any of the others except the occasional bowtie with a tux, I prefer the ordinary tie with a simple or four-in-hand knot. Not much of a fashion risk, but it works for me. 

Game On Dude and Wise Dan are neck and neck at this point. The Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita Park in November will no doubt answer lots of questions.

She is a towering 5’3” Spanglish-speaking fashionista in her 20s with a fashion philosophy of "less is more."

Louie C.K. (even though the finale is in September). I can’t get enough of him! 


All of the above! But if I had to pick one - a classic tie. Who doesn’t love the look of a timeless and classic accessory? It makes a gentlemen that much more handsome! 

Game On Dude! I got to see him race at the Pacific Classic at Del Mar. I loved seeing him win while at the track with America’s Best Racing.

I don't have much time for TV watching these days, but with HBO GO, I have become hooked on "The Newsroom." Maybe it's a guilty pleasure as a journalist. On top of that, it's all baseball as I hope my Boston Red Sox can get back to the World Series.

Amherst-Williams (I mean, who doesn't know that?!)

Original tie. I have never worn anything else, so if I suddenly wore a bowtie, it would seem fake. Never go ascot. Never.

Tough one ... ORB.
