Better late than never...

Eyes in the Backfield is up. There were some links here and there today, but nothing I really feel jazzed about passing on. The there was a nice summary of some national opinions in the Star.com today. My quote of the day comes from a meeting with a radio exec doing a focus group. I'm not making this up:

If you want to bleed listeners, put on a Fever game. We could go around and hit people in the head repeatedly until they changed the channel from our station, or we could just put on a Fever game. It's a lot faster.

WNBA action. . . it's faaaaaaaantastic!

Also, I want to take a break from my normal fare and recommend the Darjeeling Limited. If you like Wes Anderson, you won't be disappointed. If you don't, then I doubt this will turn your crank. I love Anderson movies, and put this at #2 behind Tenenbaums. That's no criticism. I went to see it with my friend Tim and it was amusing to see the whole theater was basically 25-30 year old guys seeing a movie with their buddy. There were like 2 women in the theater. We fit the target demographic pretty much to a T.

Wow, with this level of personal detail, it's practically a chick blog now. Sorry about that. Just read Eyes in the Backfield. That's all I really wanted to say.

I hope you had a good time at the movies with your boyfriend.

har har. Couldn't you be a little more obvious?

Hey, according to Bill Simmons is entirely possible for "two of their (the Colts) starters came out of the closet as a couple and announced they wanted to get married right before the playoffs, only Tony Dungy is already on the record as being against gay marriage, so the players decided to stop playing for the Colts again until Dungy changed his stance."

I'm not sure what's considered appropriate language for this Blog so I will keep what I think of Simmons to myself.

Deshawn Zombie said...

Yeah, I think we all should keep our comments about that to ourselves. Simmons hit a new low with that, and I don't want to even dignify it with a response. He'll get what is coming to him...soon.

Including the impending death of Vinny in your poll isn't exactly taking the high road...

deshawn zombie said...

Impending death? Nooooo, we were refering to the Charlotte Angels, the local arena team there in town! As for Simmons, I'm not taking the high road, I'm just saving my bile for his next collumn, which will assuredly be ridicious.

Joe said...

be sure to include the so obvious it's required "besides, we all know that it's Brady that ..."

deshawn zombie said...

lol, such a valuable point. In all seriousness, I'm just already sick of Simmons and the Pats and the hype. I can't bring myself to talk about it. I really just want to think about tomorrow's game and then kick off Monday with a burst of new hatred for all things New England.

It isn't worth the energy. Simmons is only going to get more unsufferable (if you can imagine) after the Sox lock up the World Series.

I am not prepared to live in a world where the Pats are champs and the Sox are to. Help me Peyton Manning...you're my only hope!
