fun being a Terps hoop fan these days. Been a long time. Men's
ranked 8th, women 7th. Especially nice since the B1G
sportswriters picked the
men to finish 10th. Anyway, the comment of the week comes from
Michigan State Spartans game thread during their blow-out
like those kids that your mom made you invite to your birthday party.
You have no animosity towards them but you wish they’d just go home.

screen caps below say all that needs saying about this clunker, where
Brits team with Russia to foil a plot to nuke an oil pipeline. Success
depends on top Russian nuclear physicist Christmas Jones, as

supposed to be funny (but wasn't).
Of course Bond
eventually pleasures her in the fadeout as M watches the infrared
heaving on her monitor. Oh my.
that's not what prompts me to do this posting. Last night I
watched the newest Rowan Atkinson Bond parody, Johnny English 3 (clip).
Not only is it the best (I actually laughed out loud three times), but
I found myself thinking, "Hey, if
