1.) I’m just going to keep this short and sweet: Beasts of the Southern Wild is the best movie I’ve seen in a long, long time. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and check it out. It is MAGICAL!
2.) Also, magical? BRUNCH! Went out to a delicious brunch with some friends yesterday and I gotta say, there may be a few things better in the world than mimosa’s and steak and eggs at 11:30 in the morning, but I can’t think of any off the top of my head. DELICIOUS!
3.) I am officially done with the NFL. My only involvement will be to update my fantasy football rosters before the games and then check out. No games. Ever again. And this is my last year of fantasy football–at least in the leagues for money.
Why is that? Well for one thing, the Raiders suck. Again. After ten years of sucking. So it’s no fun to watch them. For another, the Raiders got screwed. Again. And nobody is going to be talking about the play at all because, well, it’s the Raiders. And that’s what pisses me off about the NFL.
If the Pats had gotten screwed like the Raiders yesterday, the NFL world would be up in arms. Peter King would be peeing himself in disbelief. But that’s the thing.
Shit like that doesn’t happen to the Patriots! And it’s INFURIATING!
By the way, if you don’t know what I’m talking about, yesterday the Raiders forced a fumble, recovered the fumble and ran it in for a TD. Only the referees blew the whistle early so it didn’t count AND Cincinnati got to replay 3rd down.
Now, would that TD have led to the Raiders winning the game? Probably not. They still would’ve been down by 10. But did that call change the complexion of the game? ABSOLUTELY.
So forget you NFL. I am done with this crap.
I was one of the ones calling for them to get rid of the replacement refs, but the regular refs are just as bad. Why? Maybe because the stupid game has too many stupid rules.
4.) Even if Andrew Bynum doesn’t play a game for the Sixers, I still love the trade. Why? Because it got rid of Andre Iguodala who sucks and was a freaking mediocre albatross strapped to the Sixers psyche for too long. With Iggy, our ceiling was being a 7th seed and getting beat in the first round of the playoffs. Without him? Who knows. But that’s a good thing.
