today in sport

Football (no America, it’s NOT soccer)
Glasgow Celtic are still top of the SPL with a clear 13 points ahead of Edinburgh Rangers (a.k.a. Hearts). R*ngers are in 4th place below Hibs with 43 points… Oh how my heart bleeds, NOT.

Basketball (NBA)
Dennis Rodman to return to the NBA?

  • Portland are allegedly interested and rumors about Toronto hovering over him are in the air too. He’s 44, what more can he bring to the game?
  • Pistons president Joe Dumars let Dark Milicic (I mean Darko damnit) go to Orlando with Carlos Arroyo for Kelvin Cato and a conditional first round draft choice in either 2007 or 2008.

Baseball (MLB)
Guess who’s thinking of packing in his game? He’s 5th in major league history with 588 homers and hit .221 with 14 homers and 45 RBIs last yearwith Baltimore. He’s 37 years old and he’s been playing MLB for about 16 or 17 years. Come on down Sammy Sosa… Sosa on MLB.com.

Golf
Sick ass Tiger Woods opens with 69 in the Nissan Open at Riviera. He is reported to have said how he “was disgusted with how I felt” and was very frustrated. Hrm, I’m a golfer and if I could open 18 holes at 69 there I would be VERY happy. Still, this is Tiger, even if he has a fever and flu.

I don’t really care much about other sports except for Hockey and the only news to report is that Hasek is injured so no more dominating for him 🙂

New HMV acquisitions

new HMV acquisitions

I get a little bit carried away when I decide to let myself go and spend money in HMV. Check out the latest movies I have wasted my “hard” earned dollar on.

The 2 or 3 items for 30 bucks is a BIG attraction to me. It’s sometimes hard to find the third DVD though. I don’t buy many music titles at once, if I do this I don’t get a chance to listen to each CD.

Check what I got today, I had to get “the Karate Kid” soundtrack, obviously. “Kung Pow” is just a classic. I remember watching “Lost Highway” way back, independent movie theatre in Liverpool, it’s gone now. David Lynch, hrmmm… As Liverpool approaches the “City of Culture” in 2008 it seems to have lost a lot of its old culture, its quickly becoming a very modern, new city. I can’t wait to see it next time.

It’s Valentines Day eve… I am making preparations for Miss Jacobs. Must go.

Future Sylvester Stallone movies

Latest movies in production or otherwise.

Rambo IV

Plot Outline – Vietnam vet John Rambo is forced to rise from the shadows of his reclusive existence and take justice into his own hands after a (random?) girl goes missing…

Sounds awesome! I can’t wait! 🙂

Rocky Balboa (Rocky VI)

Rocky Balboa is now a fifty-something (60 in real life) widower running a small restaurant in Philadelphia. Yeah, there you go spoliler from me! Adrienne is deceased. Meanwhile, the World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Mason “The Line” Dixon is kicking up a storm within his sport. Rocky feels the need to enter the ring once more and make an epic comeback.

Sounds like an awesome installation of what should (but will it) be the final Rocky movie.

Chewbacca rules

You think you got UI ?

I was thinking “Minority Report” when I saw this in a science museum/tech expo around the December holidays. Although there didn’t seem to be a lot of functionality included within the demonstration panel the possibilities were endless. It seemed like this piece of technology could indeed revolutionise the way we use applications and technology.

Ok below here is mostly copied from the website, I am not going to write a new overiew on this technology when the guy who made it alreday explain it so well. Read on and check the website.

Cheers Willy for the early morning link!

Chewbacca rules “do do doooooooooo!”

Fruity me likey

Breakfast – 4 kiwis, 1 large bag of grapes, 2 bananas, 1 litre of cranberry/raspberry juice, 2 bowls of raisin bran with soya milk and two cups of coffee. Now that’s what I call power eating. Word.

Crappy Superbowl XL

Only crappy because of two reasons:

  1. 49ers weren’t in it
  2. I bet £5 (UK Pounds) with Alyssa’s fren Jen that Seahawks would win.

Steelers won (yay – go see Steeler Baby) but Jen is a Seahawks fan. Nevertheless, I owe the girl 10 canadian dollars and 7 cents. Bollocks 🙂
