Reflections

Every year a Cal fan must ask himself, how will we lose this year? Will it be a frustration year where our defense is great but offense anemic, and we have to watch misfire after misfire and lose 7-3? Or a horror season of great offense but no defense, where every game has a slow motion unstoppable winning drive by the opposition? Or just a piss poor season where we're hoping to get a slot in the Emerald Nuts Bowl? This year we have the Stomp On Your Fricking Heart team where they drive for the win at the end of every game and make a terrible mistake most of the time.

In happier news, I saw Darjeeling Limited and it was everything I wanted it to be. Jason Schwartzman, Adrian Brody, and Owen Wilson form Hollywood's All Nose Team.


Other than that, it's Wes Anderson in India. Lots of great little details, very oddly funny set pieces, slow motion sequences, and Bill Murray appears for no real reason. I would rank it in the Rushmore level, just below Royal Tenenbaums, but above the acquired taste level of Life Aquatic.

It was so good, Owen Wilson decided to make it his last movie by offing himself!

Being a Cal fan is not so bad.

Now being an Irish fan...

Oooh... too soon. Aw, who am I kidding, this is jiggsblog?

Yeah, the Irish have a tough lot in life because the media loves them so much that most fans hate them so much and thus love when the media pressure makes Notre Dame go to a bowl game against a much better team and get stomped. It's a vicious circle.
