Make a new
But Brady looked like he had had enough of Tebow time....and he wanted to show the upstart a thing or two.
As an aside, for what should be painfully obvious reasons, I will have no comments on the Bears loss to, of all teams, the Seahawks. :-(
But I await more post-mortems as to what happened to the rest of the offense today, with Rodgers' worst record of the season -- although he did top the TD record of that ex-QB we don't talk about, but he sure still tries to be the talk of the town.
Crennel is getting a lot of credit from the Pack's analysts already for well-directed misdirection. I want to see more reruns of some of those plays.
Anyway: Amazing, isn't it, that the Dolphins' record still stands, after three decades? Looks like it will stand for a long time to come, too.
No wonder that record has held for this long.
And finally, for the Homeland finale, I will go off my meds, roll my eyes out of their sockets, and seduce a Marine.
Great show....Great acting....Claire Danes is riveting as agent consumed by her Ahab-like mania, when she is on her medication, and totally bonkers when she is not.
I watched the last show twice, and the second time around listened to the substance of what she said rather than the manic cadences.....everything she said made sense and was right....Shows that the impression of being bonkers is solely because of Danes's performance.....Showcases the idea that true genius may be a bit bonkers....
I guess I should be comforted to know that a CIA agent can hide a crippling mental issue from the bosses that have known her for years. All privacy is not lost.
And the very end....really bad.
Damian Lewis rocks, however. Will weigh the pros and cons before deciding to invest any time in Season 2.
I, for some reason, recorded the entire season of Dexter and have not found the time to watch it. looking forward to it over the holidays. and the other series I am excited about is American Horror Story. it was nominated for a Golden Globe. really hope it wins.
Not the best season of Dexter, but it wrapped up in an interesting way!
It's weird, because the Patriots are a very vulnerable team against certain kinds of teams. Denver is the exact opposite of that kind of team.
In service to that end, tonight's dinner will feature savoy cabbage sautéed with onions and garlic and the last remaining bits of bacon, served over brown basmati rice. Also, there is an open bottle of red wine, from the Languedoc region of France, that I must finish off tonight.
December has been so dry. If this keeps up we will break the record for least amount of rain in December, a record that dates back to the late 1800s.
The long-range forecast is calling for a very, very wet January-March. And I'm okay with that. Give me dry weather through the end of this year, and it can pour for those three months in 2012. I support a heavy snowpack. I just would prefer that it not mess with my plans. :-)
I love the Oregon coast. It is so different depending on where you are. In Southern Oregon, Bandon and Gold Beach are nothing like Yachats and Newport on the central coast, which are different from Cannon Beach on the north coast.
now slither away.
Amazingly we still control our own playoff destiny...just gotta beat the G-Men and the Fish.
F*ckin' Eagles might win their division, talk about back from the dead...another crazy season going down to the wire.
Not much of a chance, but you never know.
And the Jets simply have to beat the Giants next week. If anything we will sh*t the bed against the Dolphins.
Then Romo and the 'Boys in a Week 17 playoff game? I don't see that happening.
Ladies and Germs your 2011 NFC East Champion Eagles!
Saw disc one of HBO "Angels in America." What a cast.
Now listening to Humperdinck's "Hansel and Gretel" on KUSC FM. Fun.
again, excellent in all of them
Tonight on 60 Minutes Morley Safer interviewed Streep. The interview seemed to be part of the PR for Streep's new movie about Margaret Thatcher. They showed clips from the movie. It is quite startling how very much like Thatcher Streep looks in the movie.
She was completely charming when talking with Safer. She seems like a lovely woman.
Can't add muh else- of course she is a favorite and I'll see anything she is in!
she is a treasure.
Streep, on the other hand: You hand her a script, and she "becomes" the person she's portraying.
"she is a treasure?"
She certainly is.
Have fun. Be safe. Surround yourself with love and joy and laughter.
Unlike many sites, TL is, for me at least, like an on-line family. Oh sure, sometimes we squabble. And we have our share of characters (what family doesn't?). Still, as much as is possible in a virtual setting where most of us use fake names, the TL community is caring and kind and supportive. I am so glad I found this place.
TL is the very best political, criminal defense,sports, cooking and TV critiquing site anywhere on the intertoobz.
A: One is a phony messiah who fooled a bunch of people after a couple of convincing performances in Denver.
The other plays football
and the packers lost.
Tough break for the Pack but it might improve their chances to repeat as SB champs. Carrying an undefeated record for too long seems to be more of a burden than not. I just wish they'd lost to a team other than the Chefs, whose ownership I've never liked.
Sometimes you (me) get caught up in the hype of another team, since you haven't really seen them play yet.
In the early years of Pats dominance there was an arrogance associated with being a fan. That was checked in 2007, and now it's like every time the team is playing well you (me) are just waiting for the axe to fall. But most of the time, it doesn't fall. Because they are still really freaking good.
Really liking Pat's running back Ridley.
I may have no interest in his religion, but he is one hell of a damn fine human being.
Even funnier is Ron Paul is rising. Maybe the rank and file is even sick of the Neocons?
And it's way more fun to watch the loonies scramble between Trump, Cain, Newt, etc... than it is to talk about the fact that the Republicans will probably end up nominating a life-size version of a Ken doll for president. Although I would expect them to be more happy with a doll. Afterall, you can make him do whatever you want.
Boring isn't necessarily a bad thing to many voters.
And hey, we've already got that - Obama is also one that you can get him to do whatever you want too (if you're a member of the Republican leadership, that is).
Your third paragraph was very predictable. Needless to say, I don't agree. But hey, don't we all just not hate Mitt!
Please prove to me where the crazy of the week was not being pushed as "ooh - scary!" in left-wing circles - Rachel Maddow, Huff Po, TPM, Kos, Digby, even this site etc,. (How many posts and comments have been about scary Sarah Palin!, even after it was long clear [circa November 2008] that her political career was done?)
Of course, what you missed is the fact that it is not a mutually exclusive proposition that while the crazies on the right were generating interest among their base and pushing the flavor of the week, as always happens in a long primary season with a horse race, so was the left.
I never said it was a "vast left wing conspiracy", but there's that leap of logic again. But even you cannot deny that it is in the Democrats' best interest to keep pushing the crazies. I'm going to go out on a limb here (well, not really, since there already is a history of it) and say there will be many crossover Democrats going to vote in the upcoming primaries.
And my third paragraph was "predictable", as you put it, well, because it's true.
Thanks for the laugh your comment provided - I needed a good chuckle at the end of the day!
Plus, they have spent 30 years convincing themselves that their filthy rich northeastern and Californian pols are really down home Texan cowboys. Reagan pulled it off by virtue of being a professional actor. Apart from some wardrobe changes, Mitt isn't even trying to act the part.
Oh yeah, remember Ahnold's love child?
Turns out he went to my kids' schools (grade and middle school) up until about a year or so ago. He was a year ahead my oldest.
Can't say I ever met him or his mom, though that would have been pretty interesting in hindsight...
