With all due respects to Emerson, Lake, & Palmer

If "The Move" was a 10 on the depression meter, I'm feeling about an 8 right now.  :(  

It's only Regular Season- but

I watched the Golden State- Clippers game last night, and good Lord, did the Warriors look good. Raining down threes- by everyone. Granted the Clippers weren't playing much perimeter defense, but it looked like everything Curry was tossing up was going in. Even when he was getting defended pretty well. Can't figure out how their small ball lineup was getting all those rebounds.


Christmas Day will be interesting.

A game Plan Broken Down...

Maybe this is why Pettine didn't want to start Johnny. But then again, the Steelers probably dumbed down those 170 plays to 50 for Ben when he was a rookie. Like how many of those plays are you actually going to use in a game?  


Very long read, but a good one.....



It's come down to this...

Seen in IMAX 3D.


You can tell how many movies I actually watch on the big screen. Had to see this one though. I've climbed a few mountains in my earlier years. So this is hardly an unbiased opinion. Only minor poetic license from reality- as a climber- I'll leave the nit-picky details of that to myself. Two thumbs way up.


For those who have read Jon Krakaur's"Into Thin Air" (helps if you've read it) this is the film version. 100% historically accurate- and filmed on location. I know enough about the Everest vicinity and it's climbing routes- that I can guarantee you this was shot on location. So if you ever want to see what climbing the Big One entails- this is your ticket- without the danger of getting yourself killed in the process. Want to walk across one of those ladders over a crevasse with a couple hundred foot cavern beneath you? Take a peek over the Kangshun face with a two mile 70 degree sled ride to the bottom?   I'll have to hazard a guess Dave Brashears (who's climbed Everest a couple of times) and happens to be a crack cinematographer on top of it- hauled a couple of IMAX cameras up the "Tourista" South Col route, shot the footage, and then did some CGI work to put the actors where they should have been.
