Lance Berkman Retires

You Know You're Too Old When: Lance Berkman Retires. Great career, but more importantly, I always thought #TheBigPuma/#FatElvis was funny.

Labor Day

Labor Day: Even the great Kate Winslet can't save this melodramatic claptrap. Destined for cult classic status after endless Lifetime reruns

Durant Beats LeBron

Great, just bl**dy great. #Durant outduels #Heat, wraps up MVP, and causes heartache and pain for this lone #LeBron fan in LA. Sigh...

The Hunt

The Hunt: Glad to see Vinterberg leave the Dogma95 affectations behind. Great perfs by Mikkelsen & the very young Wedderkopp. Good movie.

New Zealand Upsets India in ODI Series

Looks like #NewZealand didn't get @BCCI/@ICC memo they're being legislated into oblivion. Big upset over #India to win ODI series. #NZvInd

Seth Davis Book Reading

Great job by @SethDavisHoops at his book reading. They changed title from The Teacher to #Wooden because of search engine optimization! Ha!

Congrats to #LiNa for winning #AusOpen despite past failures. Bad luck for #Cibulkova, powerful pocket-rocket, inspiration for us shorties!

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty: The perfect wish-fulfillment fantasy for wish-fulfillment fantasy nerds like me! For normal people it's bad

RIP Suchitra Sen

Sign You Have To Hand In Your #Bengali Card: You Find Out The Great Suchitra Sen Died By Reading @EW. Sad, so very, very sad...

Federer Beats Murray!

Vintage #Federer is back...well at least for another night against whiner #Murray! Now, if only #BabyFed had come through... ;-) #AusOpen

Federer Thrashes Tsonga!

Still luxuriating in that vintage #Federer beat-down of #Tsonga! Not sure what's gonna happen next but I'll enjoy this while I can! #AusOpen

Seahwaks Beat the 49ers!

Thank G*d! #PeteCarroll & #Seahawks beat the insufferable #49ers! Two teams I love in #SuperBowl! Now if only #Federer can beat #Tsonga! :-)

Peyton Manning Beats Tom Brady!

Oma-bloody-ha! #Peyton overcomes his detractors (& #Brady) to drive the #Broncos to the #SuperBowl! Let's hope #Federer is inspired! #Omaha

Serena Upset By Ivanovic at Australian Open 2014

Woah! Huge upset at #AusOpen! #Serena ousted by flashy-but-inconsistent #Ivanovic. Let's hope she can keep it going!

47 Ronin

47 Ronin: Not nearly as bad as all the pre-release hype would have you believe. In fact, it's not bad at all. Sanada & Kikuchi are awesome.

12 January 2014

True Detective

#TrueDetective: Uneven but compelling start. Loved Harrelson & McConaughey (what a streak!). Slightly over-directed by the young Fukunaga.

11 January 2014

Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor: Incredible cast esp Foster. Expertly crafted by Berg (gun battle...whew!). Film comes agonizingly close to being truly great.

Greg Maddux Gets Into the Hall of Fame

You Know You're Too Old When: #Maddux (yay!), #Thomas & #Glavine get into the #MLB #HOF. Sad for the snubs esp. #Raines & #EdgarMartinez :-(

08 January 2014


#Intelligence: Woohoo! Sawyer, I mean Holloway, is back...too bad he didn't bring the #Lost writers with him. Still, it's good harmless fun!

Malcom Gladwell Article on Marvin Miller

Revisiting the great @Gladwell piece on #MarvinMiller. Deserves to be in the #MLB #HOF. http://t.co/RPfAu7hFj6

Dallas Buyers Club

Dallas Buyers Club: Nicely put together by director Vallee. Strong performances overcome a meandering script, esp from Leto & McConaughey.

Mitchell Johnson's Ashes

Met @MitchJohnson398 once, disappointingly polite despite me goading him ;-) This #Ashes whitewash will go down as #MitchellsAshes! #AusvEng

RIP Eusebio

RIP #Eusebio. Great Portuguese footballer from the golden age.

The Invisible Woman

The Invisible Woman: Not bad. Our Ralph Fiennes is a superb actor and if he keeps at it he'll turn into a pretty good director someday.

Blue Is the Warmest Color

Blue Is the Warmest Color: Starts promisingly but sadly devolves betraying an extraordinary performance by Exarchopoulos She deserves better

Oklahoma Beats Alabama in Sugar Bowl

C'mon you have to agree the world is a better place now that #NickSatan has been vanquished, even at the hands of whiner #Stoops! #SugarBowl

Happy New Year World! Let's hope 2014 is better than 2013! Cheers! #NYE #2014
