Yevgeny Kafelnikov HOF Snub

Real Madrid Beats Barcelona

I'm confused. I used to like #RealMadrid in the #Zidane days. Now people love #Barca. I love #Ozul. What do I do with the #ElClasico result?

Statistical Analysis To Decide Greatest Male Tennis Player

Nice work by @Robert_Spiral16 on greatest tennis players. #Federer is #GOAT but #Sampras & #Nadal unfairly diminished. http://t.co/9Gj9B5iX

Last Lions of India

Last Lions of India: Cool doc about the Asiatic lions of the Gir Forest. For once there's good news - the population is rebounding. Nice!

15 April 2012

Eastbound & Down

Eastbound & Down: Insane end to an insane show! Best Non-Larry-Sanders @HBO Comedy, Ever! #KennyPowers lives on in our hearts forever.

Steve Nash And Suns Beat The Rockets

The old #Jedi schools the young #Padawan. @SteveNash outduels the blossoming #Dragic to keep the #Suns slim playoff hopes alive! #NBA

Nike "I Will Run To You" Commercial

The "I Will Run To You" #Nike commercial is this close to #WesAnderson territory - which is precisely why I love it! http://t.co/QxHLbz9M

McEnroe/Borg - Fire & Ice

McEnroe/Borg - Fire & Ice: Stunning HBO doc that only begins to peel away the complex psychological layers of these two greats. Fascinating.

12 April 2012

Tough Loss For The Heat Against Bulls

Tough loss for the #Heat against what was essentially a 2nd-string #Bulls team. Bad news for the Eastern Finals and this #LeBron fan. #NBA

From The Sky Down

From the Sky Down: Gripping inside look at the fractured history of Achtung Baby. Will the recent U2 albums get the same introspection? ;-)

Pony Excess

Pony Excess: Maybe not the best #30For30 doc, but definitely the most entertaining. Director Matula keeps you hooked from beginning to end.

Dodgers Win Home Opener

Tough home-opening win for the #Dodgers today against a better-than-you-think #Pirates. Sadly, no #VinScully. Happily, some #BeachBoys. #MLB

KKR Finally Wins An IPL Match

Our long #Bengali nightmare is over! #KKR finally won their first game of the #IPL season. So, now what do we complain about?! #IPL5

Giant

Giant: As epic in scope as its runtime would suggest. Surprisingly subversive, great Elizabeth Taylor & spectacularly eccentric James Dean.

09 April 2012

RIP Jack Tramiel

RIP Jack Tramiel. Founder of Commodore. Our first computer was a VIC-20. I owe Jack for lots of *old* fond family memories.

Namath

Namath: Entertaining HBO documentary about good old Broadway Joe. They sure don't make 'em like this anymore do they? Lotsa fun.

Rubicon

Rubicon: One of the greatest TV shows I've ever seen, seriously! The very heights of craftsmanship! Naturally it was canceled early. @AMC_TV

08 April 2012

Bubba Watson Wins The Masters

In-bloody-credible win for #Bubba #Watson who pulled a #Seve-Meets-#Phil kinda #Masters miracle! Tough luck for #Louis #Oosthuizen & #Lefty.

RIP Mike Wallace

RIP Mike Wallace. Legendary newsman, sadly one of the last few remaining.

07 April 2012

Mickelson Charges Up Masters Leaderboard

Un-bloody-believable! Great stuff from #Lefty setting up for an amazing #Masters final. Nice to see #Stenson bounce back from that snowman.

The Unwritten - On to Genesis

The Unwritten - On to Genesis: Finally! The plot moves forward. Just when I thought I was out, it bloody pulled me back in. On to Vol 6...

The Curious Case of Curt Flood

The Curious Case of Curt Flood: Truth truly is stranger than fiction. One of the best HBO documentaries you'll ever see. Fascinating.

06 April 2012

RIP Thomas Kinkade

RIP Thomas Kinkade. I'll light a candle in a cottage window for him.

Alcatraz

Alcatraz: Fun show that sadly ended just when it was finding its groove. Plus, it's always good to see Hurley, Jesminder, Max & Alan Grant!

The Thin Man

The Thin Man: Who knew alcoholism could be this delightful? I choose to believe that Powell & Loy were actually Nick and Nora. Lovely stuff.

03 April 2012

Baylor Wins Women's NCAA

Congrats to #Baylor for winning the women's #NCAA championship. Brittney #Griner is well on her way to becoming the greatest female athlete.

Chico & Rita

Chico & Rita: The story is as exuberant as its music and animation. Great to see some grown-up animated films. Nice work by @GKIDSfilms!

02 April 2012

Kentucky Wins NCAA Championship

Bad luck for #Kansas. Fought hard but couldn't beat #Kentucky. Let's hope #Calipari won't need to vacate the #NCAA win in a few years ;-)

Dick's "Untouchable" Commercial

Woah! That "Untouchable"" commercial from @DICKS totally makes me wanna do like sports & stuff! Awesome! http://t.co/nIC0vgBx

Once Brothers

Once Brothers: Melancholy look at the cost of war from a sports perspective. Sad to see all that potential Drazen Petrovic left behind.

Barry Lyndon

Barry Lyndon: Expectedly beautiful (esp on the big screen), unexpectedly funny (Kubrick had a sense of humor?!). The candlelit scenes...wow!

01 April 2012

Djokovic Wins Miami

Appropriate for #AprilFools. #Djoker beats always-game (& always-hard-luck) #Murray to win @SEOpen. Ole #Nole! Sorry couldnt resist ;-) #ATP
