Where you been? I've seen it twice already. I was FIRST on line for the midnight showing here in Vegas. 8) What a great movie! Went again last night, and will probably go again in the next couple of days.

well I would have gone at the midnight show but my son was staying with me (4) and I thought I would wait until the next day. Then I saw it twice.

I'm not much of a Star Wars fan, so I'm reluctant to go, and after reading Mr. Cranky's review I'm definitely not gonna go :lol:

Mr Cranky is a jealous son of a gun, now isn't he? He just wishes someone would treat him HALF as good as George gets treated. Let him make a movie and see how easy it is to deliver the goods. I'd say that George is batting .900 and that is frelling fantastic! 8)

Tuesday’s Popping Off

To quote Chester Cheetah, "It’s not easy being cheesy…"

Tony Dungy is a good defensive coordinator, but it is pretty obvious that the Colts hiring him will not be good for the offense. The question the coaches of the newly constituted AFC South won’t be asking is how do we stop Peyton Manning because Tony Dungy will be able to do that all by himself.

Women’s restrooms are such oddities because I don’t get what women do in there. I have already elaborated as to why men’s room’s are the sickest places in the world. But I don’t get why women would want to spend more time in a place that is made to take bodily fluids and waste and just hang out in front of the mirror. What is this, an Elk’s Club meeting?

Mike Tyson got into another shoving match and caused more problems to the multiple black eyed laden world of boxing again. Tyson's adviser was in the process of getting the paperwork necessary to have the former champion licensed to fight in Nevada. However, Mike’s people don’t yet have the boxing license from the Great State of Nevada yet. The Commission has to rule if Mikey is mentally stable enough to fight. Remember, at one point these clowns actually thought he was mentally stable enough to fight. What exactly is normal to these people?

It sounds like Mike spent too much time in the Big House and I don’t mean Michigan’s stadium. "Be a man! Come up here, you f------ f-----. Be a man. I'll f--- you in the ass. B----!" Mike, guys aren’t supposed to want to do that to each other.

When do women hit the age where they have to put those plastic handkerchiefs over their heads? My grandmother still uses one when it rains, but have you ever seen a woman under 60 do it? I am wondering what the mentality is that just makes them decide, hey I should start wearing this thing.

Don’t wager any money on anything you read that Jeremy or I think, but if you are a compulsive gambler and a reader of the Point, take the Rams and the points. This is how the Rams work, they want to send a message that the Patriots are terrible.

We need another player/coach. The thing I think is weird is the trash talk. McMillian's team beat the Sonics' starting five. "I thought I did good," McMillan told the Seattle Times. "I still have game. I'm a little concerned that we beat that first unit, and we have a game [tonight]. With me out on the floor and some of the plays that I was making, they couldn't respond to what I was doing." That’s not a real good indication of the team’s talent when your coach is beating you. It’s not like Nate McMillian was Larry Bird.

St. Louis Rams head coach and apparent applicant into the Latrell Sprewell good conduct club got mad watching Edge NFL Match-Up because Merrill Hoge was suggesting the best way to beat the Rams was to run it up the gut. Now, that comment really doesn’t infuriate me, but if I were a Mike Martz lunatic kind of guy I guess this would make me mad too. Ok, it wouldn’t and I am flabbergasted by Martz’ comments. "I wanted to choke him. I almost threw something at the TV." Remember, this is because Hoge thinks people should run the ball in the middle of the field against the Rams.

Shaq recently talked about his criticism for his recent fight with Bulls Center Brad Miller, "I do not waste my time in answering abuse. I thrive under it like a field that benefits from manure." Fields from manure? I am just reminded of how much George Costanza likes the word manure. Nice Shaq.

Nuggets guard Nick Van Exel was asked if he would play with one of those weird clear masks while his jaw heals, Van Exel joked: "Nah, I'm already ugly. I don't need a mask." No argument here.

Any Patriots fans reading this needs to know there team shouldn’t even be here except for the ineptness of NFL refs. Remember at the beginning of the season when Refs were on strike and people were concerned the replacement guys might blow a big call. Yeah, thank goodness we got the real one’s back so they could do it all by themselves.

Super Bowl time. The Super Bowl is one of my favorite events as we all get to hang out with each other listen to women make comments about the game that make me want to start hitting myself in the head like Ray in Rain Man with the hot water. You know stuff like, "Rams don’t live in Missouri." "That was dumb (this could be in reference to anything and maybe it really was dumb, but they couldn’t explain why) and "Those uniforms sure are ugly." It’s the most wonderful time of the year.

Is there a more demoralizing experience for a man than having to wait in one of those ridiculously long lines at IKEA?

Yesterday, Phil Jackson and the Los Angeles Lakers went to the White House to be congratulated for last year’s NBA Championship. Instead of being gracious and thanking the President, Jackson played the part of his partisan hack friend Bill Bradley. "This group showed the country and NBA basketball how to work together as a group," Jackson told the president. "And I only hope that you and the Congress can do as much and the same. "Phil, having two of the top 5 players in the league on your team gives you absolutely zero rights to pop off to the President. Make the number 159 as to another reason why I hate Phil Jackson.

The Eagles will be back, but I am wondering if they might not a modern day version of the mid-80’s Cleveland Browns. They are good, but every year they get into the playoffs and get knocked off by a team of destiny. This is a little early, but lets remember how good those Browns teams led by the original Dawgs, Bernie Kosar, Kevin Mack and Ernest Byner and a whole slew of good players.

So we didn’t ask Mark Cuban questions about basketball because we were afraid we would hear the company mantra again. However, some people are talking about the Mavs giving up Michael Finley and Shawn Bradley in return for Karl Malone. Now a front line featuring the Mailman and Dirk Nowitzki should have everyone including the Lakers worried, but Michael Finley is a one of the best swingmen out there. If Utah is offered this and even if it means taking Shawn Bradley, they shouldn’t even hesitate.

Phil Simms is getting pretty worked up these days. "Kordell Stewart, from my eyes, being an ex-quarterback, his play was really, really good. Until two out of the last three throws," Simms told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I said to Greg during a commercial and said, 'Poor Kordell Stewart.' All season, he played really, really steady. Played 95 percent of this game that way. You know what, I can hear it in Pittsburgh all this week. Forget the special-teams mistakes. It'll be 'Kordell Stewart was the problem.' I can hear it. I can't wait for somebody to come up to me and say that. Because I'll undress him." Now if I can only arrange for a meeting between Mac and Simms.

We all know the deal. The Rams are going to kill the Patriots. This game will be ridiculously bad. The Patriots might even keep it close for a half but as I have been telling people, the Rams factor is different. The Rams could play mediocre for 59 minutes and yet for one minute go into overdrive and put up 14 points and blow it open.

We all remember the 1985 season where an overachieving Patriots team got into the big game where the only drama that was left after the first five minutes was "will the Fridge score?" He did. I am not sure if the Rams have anyone nearly as compelling, but maybe they can figure out a way to have Marshall Faulk throw a touchdown pass to Kurt Warner. This is a blowout no matter how bad the pundits want you to believe this game will be close. This game smells a lot like a locker room with a 38 – 10 score going on.

Tough times ahead for your Olympic hero. No, I’m not talking about Kurt Angle, instead headlines read, "Tonya Harding Faces Eviction" and " Former Star Harding Says She'll Live in Vette With Pet". Sure, maybe she’ll be homeless but at least she has a Vette. Also, what did she do with all of that money her former husband, Jeff Gilooly, made on that wedding night porno they made?

Georgia Tech had another coach hired with inaccurate info on his resume. Maybe it is time Georgia Tech decided that the whole background check thing isn’t such a terrible idea.

All I am saying is you are putting your own money at risk by filling out your brackets without the Cincinnati Bearcats winning their region and getting to the Final Four.

The world has changed. Today, there are parties where all you do is sit around and ,listen to the President together. I have to do this on a semi-regular basis, love W and still have only one word for you. Boring, at least for the theme of a party. Come on people, get a life.

Rocky Mountain News columnist Dave Kreiger understands how the draft that brought Raef LaFrentz to Denver, but he must forget that nobody in Denver gives a rat’s ass about the Nuggets. I don’t know if even half of Nuggets fans could name you a Nugget that isn’t on the injured list. "As long as you're in Denver, you're the guy Issel drafted instead of Carter. As soon as you go somewhere else, you're the guy they got for whatever they gave up. Carter stops being the road not taken. Nibbling at your soul is the suspicion that might be best, all the way around."

More on the Tyson press conference. "Reports referred variously to the leg, the left leg, the leg through the pants, and the foot, One of Tyson's trainers, Stacy McKinley, loyally proposed that Lewis had bitten himself in the foot." He was biting Lewis through the pants. You start adding this to the whole prison rape things Tyson has talked about; things are looking really weird for Mike.

Look, I am not a Kordell Stewart apologist, but at the end of the day how many games do you think most teams win when giving up 2-second half touchdowns. Stewart sucks, but putting him in a 2-touchdown hole doesn’t exactly help.

I am going back to the Me, Myself and Irene hole where Charlie’s genius sons debate whether they can place a chicken egg in a very uncomfortable place, and I don’t mean the back of a Volkswagen.

Jamaal: Lee Harvey, what's the diameter of a chicken egg?

Lee Harvey: 4.08 centimeters.

Jamaal: No what's that in inches?

Lee Harvey: 1.61, what the f*ck you gettin' at?

Jamaal: I got ten bucks saying I can squeeze a chicken egg up his ass without it breaking.

Shonte Jr.: You can't put no chicken egg up his ass, Man, look at him, he a tightass.

Jamaal: No, it can be done.

Lee Harvey: I'll take that bet.
