A Weekend of Movies

The worst review I could ever give a movie is walking out of it.  The first movie I ever did that with was “The Crying Game“.  I decided after about 30 minutes that even if someone gave me a ticket to the movie I had better things to do with two hours of my life.

When 1-6 Is Goodness

If I told you the Chiefs were 1-6 you’d be upset – that’s a sure record for missing the playoffs…again.  If Billy Butler was 1-6 that would be a slump (and unfortunately both Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain are both hitting worse than that – .160 and .133, respectively – with Eric Hosmer barely above that at .173).  And if I said on a seven question test you only got one answer right I suspect you’d be less than pleased with that result.

It’s hard to look at 1-6 in most sports or situations in life and be happy with it.
