This is why I love the film. It is ultimately about the obsession WITH Zodiac, rather than Zodiac himself. Downey has tha...

Can you believe this was the same team the Jackets beat the holy hell out of last night, Nut? I mean, the Caps kept cutting the lead to one to suck me in and make me watch the whole depressing thing, but... ugh. Y'all delivered a beat down.
Don't you Jackets know you're supposed to be tanking? C...

Yup. Getting checked but not falling down is now a double minor. Even the NBC booth which, let's face it, is pro-Penguin and anti-Cap (well, anti-Ovie is more accurate), thought it was a ridiculous call. Ehrhoff initiates the hit, loses his footing, and falls down.

Sorry, meant to have this up before Tuesday night. Been busy. So, here is your unofficial NHL refereeing test. Assess the penalty:
The actual call on the ice was two minors. Both on Ovie (holding and roughing). So apparently, being ridicul...

There was a 100% chance they were going to make a new Ghostbusters film, so I'm thrilled they are making one that won't drag Bill Murray down into that morass.
Much better than a sequel, and if you're doing a remake, do something different. I really don't get why people have an issue with this (...
| Movie/TV Board|| re: Movies Ideas You'd Rather Instead of Female Ghostbusters.... - Baloo on 1/28/15 at 8:39 pm|
Et tu, Freaux?
I'm onboard for a female Ghostbusters because it means we won't have Aykroyd try and drag Bill Murray out to reprise their roles without Harold Ramis. A new cast preserves the original Ghostbusters in ether. It cannot be sullied by a truly misguided sequel.
A total remake with a...

Yeah, NHL bent over backwards for CBJ on that one. Tavares scored 4 goals, which is sort of great, even in an All Star Game. Still, great day for Columbus and I'm glad y'all had a good time. ...

The car thing has finally been explained. Ovi was gonna donate any car he won to the NoVa Cats, a local hockey team for special needs kids. That's why he was trying to drop in the draft (the other guys didn't know, they were playing along because it was really funny). Anyway, Honda like everyone els...

LaFontaine's numbers are a bit misleading because of his era, as is anyone who played in the 80s. I'm with everyone on Modano, though I think Leetch has a pretty good case as a defensemen (though I'm surprised no one mentioned Phil Housely). While we're bringing up underrated guys... Keith Tkachuk.

I got a kick out of the NHL going full troll on the Caps, naming Forsberg as the replacement for Malkin, and not Backstrom. So not only does Nicky still not get an ASG, the NHL named the player the Caps traded away.
Well played, NHL. ...

Very cool. No idea it was a true story, though it is pretty typical of DBT to try and tell stories from the other's point of view. That's why they tell the story of Walking Tall from the point of view of the criminals. They are a band fascinated with telling the stories of the voiceless. One of Cool...

I think we'll crank up the Zamboni and get ourselves some fresh ice for the second half of the season, but before we do that, let's take stock in the season so far as we are roughly at the halfway point.
7 points separates 1st place (Tampa) from 8th (Boston). Which is also the same gap bet...

I'm pretty sure during the 70s, "pregame warmup" meant puking up the beer you had been pounding all day.
Though there's really not a lot a guy can do to work out his head to make it okay, I'm glad Letang seems all right. That was a ridiculous cheap shot, and Letang is not the kind of player who ...
