It’s difficult to explain the awesomeness of this clip. To use a basketball metaphor, this is equivalent to the #13 seed beating the #4 seed on a last second three pointer. This is Clint Dempsey, back from a knee injury, entering the game as a late sub with a 4-4 aggregate score…
That’s what I’m talking about.
In other news, the Beemsville Final Four consists of: Ohio State, Kansas State, Kentucky, and Villanova. Much as I dislike Calipari, I have the Wildcats over the Buckeyes in the final.
A couple of sci-fi/fantasy themed movies on the near horizon that have caught our interest:
- Repo Men stars Jude Law and Forrest Whitaker in a cyber-punkish near future thriller. They harvest organs. Sounds cool. Does it pay homage in any way to Repo Man?
- Clash of the Titans was one of my favorite movies as a kid and helped spur an early interest in mythology and folklore. Will this CGI-fest trample my old memories or provide a cool Olympian escape?
- How to Train Your Dragon has pixar-style Vikings and Dragons with the classic ‘quest by a misfit’ plotline. The kids are excited, and we’re going to try to use our re-cycled 3-D glasses.
