Wii Launch Lineup

According to this link, there will be 27 Wii launch titles. I only care about a few of them: Rayman Raving Rabbids, Madden NFL 07, and Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess. And I'm not even sure I care much about the last one. Granted, I'm not sure what some of the games are. I know […]

Building an Outdoor Playhouse

I'd like to build an outdoor playhouse for my kiddo. I'm envisioning something I can build myself. I'm picturing a sand box below an upper floor (the actual "playhouse"), which would have walls and a ceiling, of course. Perhaps a slide would come out, perhaps a lower deck, and of course a ladder to get […]

NFL Network is broadcasting pre-season games. Yay! Wait, football season is here already? What the heck?

Madden 2007 on the Wii

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?

Texas Roadhouse Portion Size

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. […]

I Despise Pirates Ownership

And this just about sums up why using only the past few days as evidence.

Steelers vs. Indy Replay

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 […]

Wii Pre-Orders

I wonder when the Wii pre-orders be taken by places like EB or GameStop? I'd like to get in early.

I’m Such an Idiot

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 […]

Drive-In Theater

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. […]

Michelle Wie’s Putting

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.

Inside the Ropes

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 Played Oakland Hills

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.
