1.) My fiance and I watched Mystic River on Tuesday and one thing that has always bugged me about that movie is Sean Penn’s glasses. What the hell? Look at those things. This guy is supposed to be some badass and yet he walks around with Grandpa glasses. I mean…look, if I saw the guy on the street, I wouldn’t say anything to him about them, and I guess that means they’re badass, but…come on. He looks ridiculous! The ending of that movie is very unintentionally funny, as is any scene in which Penn wears those shades.
Penn: “Look, I wantcho guys to go and find who kilt my daughta.”
Savage Brother: “Uh, yeah but you look kinda silly wit dos glasses on boss…”
Penn: “Find who kilt my daughta!”
2.) Dwight Howard ended the Sixers season when he dunked on Jrue Holiday and told him “Don’t Jump” as he was dunking on him. Then he laughed about it to reporters and said something to the extent that Holiday’s career is over. That is embarrassing on so many levels. It will be fun to root against the Heat, but come on, the Sixers have no chance. Howard’s quotes just go to show how much respect the Sixers get around the league: none. Let’s hope that Jrue recovers from that sort of public humiliation. I don’t know if I would. Good season, hopefully we draft that dude from Morehead State.
3.) I enjoyed the 60 Minutes story on Albert Pujols. BUT I still can’t be 100% sure that he has never used steroids, which sucks, but is true. Look at his head. That thing is ginormous. I just watch baseball and suspect everyone is on steroids, especially Miguel Cabrera.
4.) I’m really jealous of everyone who has HBO because A Game of Thrones looks AWESOME. I saw a preview back in January and went to the Newark Library, got a copy of the book and plowed through it. It was one of the best reads I’ve had in awhile, and Peter Dinkelage (from my favorite movie of all time The Station Agent) playing the best character in the series, Tyrion Lannister, is just perfect. Damn. Wish I had HBO. Of course, I stalled out about 400 pages into book two, A Clash of Kings. I’m sorry but there are only so many times I can read J.R.R. Martin write “Jon Snow broke his fast” instead of “Jon Snow ate breakfast” before it drives me completely nuts. Also, Bran and Sansa chapters are like torture. I just skipped over them by book two. Arya chapters, on the other hand, are the balls.
5.) Nice to see R-Truth get a title shot in WWE. After months (and I mean MONTHS) of jobbing to people, it may seem kind abrupt, but that’s how the WWE rolls. You job to people without complaining, and you’ll eventually get a title shot. That’s why I bet Evan Bourne gets one before John Morrison. Bourne loses to everybody, Morrison seems all pissed when he has to lose. Anyway, good job R-Truth.
Winter is coming…
Until next time.
