Losing, or other words for it...

When I was a kid, I remember sitting in the car (el Camino) when my Dad was driving, listening to the Indians on the AM radio. Since the radio commentator always referred to the Indians as 'Trailing', I had just figured it meant they were winning. Cannot remember the exact point in time that I realized it was the opposite.

In hockey, my Philadelphia Flyers are having a rough go early in the season...as I am reading some headlines regarding their games over the last week, it is humorous how many different ways the headline makers can describe losing...

COYOTES OUTLAST FLYERS

CANUCKS RALLY PAST FLYERS

PENGUINS SKATE PAST FLYERS

I would assume that if the team keeps losing, the writers will resort to slightly changing the statements by adding 'HAPLESS' or 'FORLORN', or 'GROUNDED' as adjectives ahead of the FLYERS.

Just thinking out loud really....

Spaced: The Perfect Ending

If you are fan of Spaced, then I think you would agree that the ending of the show was very well done. While I was sad that the show was over after just two short seasons, going out with characters intact and 'as if' they would continue on is what I think we get.


This is one of the few shows I pull out very frequently and give a spin. If you have seen 'Shaun of the Dead', 'Hot Fuzz', or 'At Worlds End' and liked them, shame on you if you have not yet seen SPACED.
