Cubs Win! [Nov. 3rd, 2016|12:49 am]
scarynikki
2016 murders yet again.  Only today it was a death everyone outside of Cleveland welcomes.  The Curse of the Billy Goat is officially dead and buried.  Congrats Cubs.

I don't watch baseball as much as I used to.  I know I've seen games over the last decade but the most recent year that I actually recall was 2004 when the Red Sox broke the Curse of the Bambino.  I'm neither a Cubs nor Sox fan (Atlanta all the way) but I can appreciate a long suffering team breaking a legendary curse.  Also, we're not talking about the Yankees or Mets, both teams that deserve to die in a fire on principal (Yankees in particular), so I'm willing to make emotional bonds.  Anyway, even though I don't watch the game as much as I did growing up I still love it.  And, among the many conversations I've had tonight across the social media landscape, two quotes have resonated:

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops."
        -A. Bartlett Giamatti

Baseball is what gets inside you. It's what lights you up, you can't deny that...
...It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard... is what makes it great.

7 Minute Preview [Oct. 30th, 2016|05:09 pm]

Apparently some event this weekend showed a seven minute preview of the Gilmore Girls special.  The reaction I read didn't say that it was a full seven minutes until about halfway through, or else I would have avoided the piece as a trailer is one thing but I want to experience the special fresh.  Anyway, I initially thought it was a new trailer so, before I stopped reading, I read that the Palladinos wrote a number of fat jokes that showed up in the preview.  I think it's safe to say that there will probably be more in the actual special as they love to beat a dead horse if they think it will get them a laugh.  And it pisses me off.  I mean, it seems as if they've finally moved away from the appalling gay jokes they loved writing, since homosexuality is more accepted than it was ten years ago so I'll take that victory but it seems that the Palladinos are right in the middle of the fat shaming norm that continues to engulf our society.

The Heavyweight Championship was amazing.  The crowds especially.  Luke and Diamondback should have sold tickets.

I apparently forgot to post a reaction on Friday when I watched this.

I'm glad they showed the drawback to bulletproof skin.  Poor Luke, having to be deep fried just to remove the shrapnel.

I came here to start posting about episode 10, so my thoughts are there.  I enjoyed this episode but that's all I'm going to say.

Stupid life, getting in the way when I'm trying to watch a Netflix show.

Well, it's Friday which means I can get back to it.
