Rice surprises Texas by showing up for the game
  • Oh, well, it was a home game, so I guess they really had to make an appearance. As it turns out, they would have gained more yards on the ground by sticking to their original plan of a forfeit.

Number two Notre Dame gets destroyed in South Bend, looks more like the Fightin' French
  • Michigan scored 34 in the first half! They scored 26 before Notre Dame could make a first down!
  • Michigan held the Irish to four yards total rushing in 17 attempts, and 4.9 yards per pass .
  • The Irish managed to convert only 2 of 14 third downs.
  • The Wolverines forced Notre Dame into two fumbles and three interceptions. Two of those five plays ended in a Wolverine touchdown.

Kudos to my main man, Borat: Borat - 100% positive reviews
  • "One of the funniest films ever made. Yes, ever."
  • "Uproariously funny."
  • "One of the funniest, most outrageous films of the year."
  • "Hundreds of hardened press and industry types cracked up hysterically, many while simultaneously cringing with their hands half covering their eyes at the first full Toronto International Film Festival screening. The woman next to me was crying with laughter. When was the last time you walked out of the theater physically worn out from both laughing and being continually surprised by the lengths the filmmakers went to to shock you? This is one of those films."
  • "Sacha Baron Cohen might be a satirist on par with Swift and anyone else who makes the deflation of societal ugliness his main target in life."

I just noticed that The Covenant finished with 2% positive reviews.
  • Of course that isn't the lowest ever bacause Benigni's Pinocchio and other films have stayed at zero, but it may be the worst ever for a film to reach #1 at the box office.

Thomas puts a Big Hurt on the White Sox
  • You have probably forgotten that The Hurt started the season with a pathetic 21-for-118. At the end of the May 20 game, his season's nadir, he was hitting .178, slugging .373. He sat out the next game, then started the season for real with two dingers. Steadily gathering momentum, he hit .333 in August, and is hitting .345 so far in September, with a slugging average of .818

Don't put jumper leads on nipples, say experts
  • How much fuckin' expertise do you need to reach that conclusion? And exactly which subject do you need to be an expert in? Anatomy? Auto repair? Or can one go to school specifically to study the appropriate body parts for jumper cables?

Daily Box Office for Friday, September 15, 2006
  • It was better than last Friday's disaster, but not much better.
  • The new releases took the top four spots, but are running below expectations except for The Last Kiss, for which the expectations left a bar too low to shimmy under.
  • The picture was no rosier for the top carry-overs. Last week's top two (Hollywoodland and The Covenant) dropped more than 50% from last Friday

The trailer for CODE NAME: THE CLEANER
  • Action comedy "Code Name: The Cleaner" stars Cedric the Alleged Entertainer as Jake, a mild-mannered janitor with amnesia who gets himself comically entangled in a government conspiracy. Jake gets in over his head when he is duped into believing that he is an undercover agent who subconsciously holds a key piece of information that could expose an arms conspiracy involving the CIA and FBI. Co-starring Lucy Liu ("Charlie's Angels") and Nicollette Sheridan ("Desperate Housewives") directed by Les Mayfield ("Blue Streak"), "Code Name: The Cleaner" is scheduled for a Jan. 5, 2007 release.

Spam fighter hit with $11.7 million judgment in U.S. Court, and ordered to stop blocking e360insight
  • Since they are a British organization in compliance with UK law, they have said they will ignore the ruling, and have invited the spammers to file their suit in the U.K., where they are considered criminals!
  • The best part of the U.S. lawsuit is that the district court has specifically ordered a British company to lie on their website! That may be some kind of new nadir in the history of American jurisprudence.
