I just read the preview and I'm excited! The use of the controller seems to be pretty great. Oh when oh when I can get my pre-order in, dangit?

I ask you: does this portion size of mashed potatoes - not even a special order, but one of the normal choices of side dish - look a little small to you or what? Carey mentioned it to the waitress and she said "no, that's pretty normal." Then, thankfully, she brought me another small dish. […]
And this just about sums up why using only the past few days as evidence.
I watched my Super Bowl XL/Steelers 2005 DVD tonight. When the playoff game at Indy came on, I felt uneasy until the Denver game came on. Some small part of me still wondered if Ben would make the tackle or if I'd been somehow living in a dream (and no, the fact that I was […]
I wonder when the Wii pre-orders be taken by places like EB or GameStop? I'd like to get in early.
Those are not my words, but those of Phil Mickelson, who lost the U.S. Open today in stunning fashion. Here are how the leaders finished their rounds just a few minutes ago: Player Score 16th 17th 18th ------ ----- ---- ---- ---- Geoff Ogilvy +5 Par Par Par Phil Mickelson +6 Bogey Par Double Jim […]
Carey and I saw Cars (not Pixar's best) and Stick It (lame) tonight at a drive-in theater. Apparently, drive-ins have done away with those speaker boxes for quite awhile now, instead asking drivers to tune in to a radio frequency. Next time we'll bring a radio so that we don't just drain the car battery. […]
If I could putt for Michelle Wie, she'd not only be playing in the U.S. Open (with 151 other men), but she'd also have won an LPGA major or two by now.
It's soooooooo nice to watch a golf tournament from inside the ropes. Today was a long day, however: up at 5, out the door by 5:30, and just now got home. My bed awaits.
I shot 83. I played five near-perfect shots (if you don't count a tap-in, which is quite difficult to do other than perfectly…) to begin the round. That course puts so much emphasis on driving the golf ball well it's not funny. This marks the second famous course I've played this year. I'm going to […]
I watched the final episode of The West Wing this morning. Though I've never actually been in this position, watching it was akin to the subtle but permanent denouement to a great relationship both parties see coming. It's nobody's fault… it's just the way things go. The feeling was mirrored in the ways in which […]
He's simply got to go. Sell the team to Mark Cuban. Sell it to someone. At this point, I almost don't care that Pittsburgh has a baseball team because, in effect, they don't.
Sports Illustrated has apparently gone down the tubes lately. People on forums are calling it a "tabloid" and a "rag." The reason I've checked? Hines Ward - February's Super Bowl MVP - was quoted several times in a story about his trip to Korea as being very rude, arrogant, and egotistical. One of those quotes, […]
I just got an email from NetFlix. Seems the settlement in their class action lawsuit has been modified to be a little more user friendly. Basically, former customers got one free month and current customers got an upgraded service plan for one month. What's changed is that, before the revision, customers would automatically be kept […]
I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm pretty excited about the Nintendo Wii. Dumb name, promising concept. Not only does the "remote" (or "Wiimote" as some have taken to calling it) feature mottion sensing in several directions (including tilt, etc.) but it features a rumbler and a speaker. That sounds like fun! […]
