Tuesday Slowdown...

I love the days leading up to a Holiday. There's something about them that is just so relaxing. Time moves a little slower in anticipation and the days seem strange like a sick day, but that might be because I generally at school at this time of day. Anyway, with Thanksgiving coming up in two days, aka the greatest day of the year, I thought people might be heading out to the movies. So here are some trailers that just came out that I'm really excited for, and even though they aren't out yet, you can still share in my excitement.

The first is Source Code. If Jake does half a good a job as Sam Rockwell in Moon, Duncan Jones' second film should be an absolute gem. It's reminding people of a cross between 12 Monkeys and Groundhog's Day which are both amazing on their own.

The second is The Green Lantern. I love Ryan Reynolds and after reading the comic, I was skeptical about how cool of a character Green Lantern actually was, but this movie is going to be awesome, though I'm a little weary of Blake Lively's presence.

The last is True Grit. I'm actually a big fan of the original starring John Wayne and was not excited about the Coen brothers having their take on it, though in their defense I'm in the minority when it comes to disliking No Country for Old Men and hating There Will Be Blood, but this looks really really good.

As always, go big.

I'm out.

Monday Two Three...

I've had a few images on my desktop I've been meaning to share with you and since I have a few minutes on this slow moving, unseasonably balmy Monday afternoon, I thought I might as well share them now.

First is a girl I stumbled across while researching Asics for school. Her name is Amee Enger. Basically, she's just really good looking.

Next we have quite possibly the greatest way to play golf ever.

Finally, this picture is pretty self explanatory. This is kind of what it feels like to drink Four Loco.

Go big.

Best Commercial Ever...

I have been loving the new Call of Duty commercials for a couple weeks now, but yesterday, Other Guy told me to youtube the Kobe Bryant one. I just watched it. And then watched it about 50 more times. And now I'm sharing it with you:

Oh how I wish this were a Halo commercial instead one for COD.

Go big.

I Hate Tayshaun Prince...

You all know my love for the Pistons and it is with great sadness that I speak of our season as I do below, however, I can't keep my mouth shut about how terrible we are so far and how far Tayshaun has fallen. I hate that dude. The following is an email I sent to some people that I thought I'd share with you:

How funny are the Pistons right now!?? I went from being embarrassed for them, to being embarrassed that I'm a fan. As if KG calling CV31 a 'cancer patient' wasn't funny enough, we got demolished by them and he had nowhere to go but cry to people on twitter. What a bitch. Then Tayshaun, the worst starter in the NBA, is fucking gully enough to tell the fans (ME!!) that if we don't have anything nice to say, we shouldn't say anything at all!!!! Are you fucking kidding me??!!! I have been Pistons fan for 28 years and I can say whatever the fuck I want to about whomever I want to. He's ridiuclous.

But the fun doesn't end there. Apparently, there is some confusion as to who is to blame. Keuster, who isn't the best coach in the league but certainly better than Curry, thinks that the players need to find some leadership amongst themselves (which is hard to argue with yet it makes me wonder where Big Ben is in the locker room) and Tay says it's Q's fault. Tayshaun is rapidly becoming the Randy Moss of our team. Next thing you know he'll be talking shit about Rock Financial and calling out Mike Illitch. Fuck Tayshaun. In the words of Agent 0, he needs to be "traded for some lint and a pack of skittles." Fuck that motherfucker. I hate him. I hope he turns into Mr. Glass and falls down some fucking stairs.

I'm out. Go Hawks.

Not Bad For A Basketball School...

So MSU finally lost on Saturday. Bummer. Huge bummer. Going 8-0 and being ranked number 5 is as exciting as our football team has been in my decade of following State football. I don't mind the loss so much, mostly because getting to 8-0 was unexpected. We have one of the hardest schedules in the country and we still have a shot at going to the Rose Bowl. I just wish we didn't drop 11 spots to #16 for one loss, while Iowa, with two losses, is ranked 15.

But I suppose those are the breaks. We will most likely win out and hopefully that is enough to get to the Rose Bowl, a game that means more to me than if we had gone to a BCS Fiesta bowl, though hopefully the Rose Bowl is a BCS game this year, because that would be nice as well. I doubt Ohio State will lose again, but I'm hoping for it. It would be great to be outright champs in the Big Ten. In any event, it's been a great season filled with hope, 32oz mugs at Tin Lizzie, the greatest trick play of the season and a lot of good times. I just hope they keep rolling.

In other news, MSU Basketball kicked off pre-season with a 44 point victory. We aren't #2 in the Country for no reason. Go big.
