More Reviews Coming, Sports, Etc.

Hey everyone! Between writing, the holidays and everything else I haven’t had the chance to post any reviews.

That’s not to say I haven’t seen any films. I’ve seen many, so my backlog of reviews is getting pretty big. But stay tuned, their coming!

In other news, the NHL lockout is coming to an end… Too little, too late. Granted we’ll get a season, or it’s so small its a “Seasonette”. Yes I have created a new word. New Years Resolution complete!

In short, the NHL season is dead to me. They can try again in the fall to win my love. In the meantime it’s a great January in football so far. My Crimson Tide of Alabama (not an alum, just a loyal subject) took the BCS. I just wish it had been harder, for an even sweeter victory.

The NFL playoffs are moving in full force and I’m excited to watch some good football, culminating in another ring for my Patriots.

Once the Superbowl is done,I simply must bide my time for another month until Spring Training starts up, and the boys of summer take the fields once more.

2013 is going to be an awesome year. Good sports happening for my teams. Good movies coming to the big screen. And in my own endeavours, Downfall is going to get some company in the completed scripts page.

Cheers!

 

NHL Winter Classic Cancelled

Well, I guess the nail is officially in the coffin.

I just got the word that the NHL has cancelled the NHL winter classic, originally slated to be in Detroit, Michigan.

I suppose I should have seen this coming.

The saddest part about the NHL strike, amongst many sad parts, is that once the NFL season is done (after the superbowl), I will be devoid of my televised sports.  Well, at least until spring training.  I cannot wait until baseball season starts again.

 My apologies to NBA fans, but I just can’t get behind basketball. I’m Sorry.

So what am I left with?  Time to start watching some minor league action. I went to four Vancouver Canadians baseball games last year, and I am a full believer in the whole-heartedness of the minor leagues. These kids have something that has been lacking in the pros, or so the strike has shown us: HEART.

Hmm maybe that’s why I love indie films and indie rock so much… worth pondering…
