JRRyan would understand the reference. Anyway, there wasn't just one game last night there was two. Who walks Ortiz just to get to Manny? The Angels, that's who. Morons. Yes, his power numbers was down this season but he was battling injuries and he produced. Last I knew, he was the active career leader in grand slams so for him to hit a three run jack is not out of the question. I love it.

The Yankees losing was perhaps even sweeter. Joe Torre always looks like he needs a potty break even when the Yanks are winning but you almost feel sorry for him. You can almost see him packing his bags and being forced out of town on a rail. Yes, the Yankees could still win the next three games but only one team has ever pulled themselves out of a hole that large. I'll give you a hint who that was. No, actually, I won't. The paragraph above is enough of a hint. Did you notice that the Canadian Soldier ants where primarily attacking them not the Indians? My aunt suggested it was a ploy. That made me chuckle.

I love this game:

Musical Magic 8 Ball
Go to your music player of choice and put it on shuffle.
Say the following questions aloud, and press play.
Use the song title as the answer to the question.


1. How does the world see me?
"Pure and Easy"-The Who. Is that a compliment?

2. Will I have a happy life?
"Go Your Own Way"- Fleetwood Mac. I'm interpreting that as a "Yes."

3. What do my friends really think of me?
"Laughing Out Loud."- The Wallflowers. As a guy with a sense of humor. Cool.

4. Do people secretly lust after me?
"Cockamamie Business"- George Harrison. ::Blinks:: Is that a "Yes?"

5. How can I make myself happy?
"The Difficult Kind"- Sheryl Crow. Get out of a terrible relationship? I don't see how that's applicable.

6. What should I do with my life?
"Cocaine"- Eric Clapton. Use cocaine. What a helpful suggestion...

7. Will I ever have children?
"Jealous Guy"- John Lennon. I think it's chiding me for asking...

8. What is some good advice for me?
"Fortunate Son"- CCR. Deny. Deny. Deny.

9. How will I be remembered?
"Sara"- Fleetwood Mac. I'll remembered as the guy who took her, different spelling, to the Senior Ball in college? Weird...

10. What is my signature dancing song?
"Angel On My Bike."- The Wallflowers. It's definitely a head-bobber/finger-tapper...

11. What do I think my current theme song is?
"Poor Little Girl."- George Harrison. LOL! OMG...

12. What does everyone else think my current theme song is?
"Don't Talk."- 10,000 Maniacs. I was voted twice as "Quietest" so this isn't fair at all...

13. What song will play at my funeral?
"Untitled Hidden Track"- The Pretenders. This song is only a 42 second instrumental. I don't know what that says...

14. What type of men/women do you like?
"Lovers of Today"- The Pretenders. A overly sensitive woman. This, sadly, is probably true.

15. What is my day going to be like?
"Layla"-Derek and the Dominoes. I'm going to spend it, apparently, pining for another man's wife. I'm not kidding...

it amuses me that we can now talk about the red sox, albeit still in a more limited way. Keep up this posting frenzy. It keeps me coming back for more, and heaps on the guilt that really is at the root of getting me to update mine own blog...

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …

An X-Cellent Post

 X-Men: Apocalypse is the third of the "prequel movies" and today is my second favorite after First Class.  Don't get me wrong: the last one,  Days of Future Past,was far from terrible but you could easily argue it was an excuse to feature Hugh Jackman. The other two do just fine with cameos (which are both awesome and unnecessary but I digress...)

The two biggest complaints I've had about the franchise are the lack of even internal continuity and lack of effort. This movie clearly had the attitude they know continuity is messed up and they don't give a shit. Havok and Cyclops are brothers but inexplicably 20 years apart in age but certainly don't look it. In '83, Prof. Xavier sees CIA Moira McTaggart for the first time since the Cuban Missile Crisis and comments, "You haven't aged a day!" Not even James Bond is a field agent in his late '50's but whatever... (Speaking of Moira,  Rose Byrne is Tasmanian while the character is Scottis…
