This here be May! I’m going to where sandals and shorts and close my eyes really tight until the weather matches my attire. I’m pretty sure it will work. . .
Not that there’s a lot to spoil, but the new X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie was at times great and really bad. There’s not much plot, which is fine by me for this type of movie, but someone needs to let them know that they don’t have to use special effects from the 90s. We’ve got new technology that makes things look . . . you know. . . plausibly real. Still worth a stop to the theater but it was much more on the caliber of X-Men III rather than I or II.

Punched any bullpen phones lately? Always worked for Taveraz.
“There’s a bunch of guys in the big leagues that are superstars that are hitting about .129 now, too,” Redbirds hitting coach Mark Budaska said. “So it happens to everybody.”
Dude, you’re in the Cardinals organization and you offer up this quote? The last time someone pissed of Albert he hit a homerun on the next pitch. Ask Daniel Cabrera if Pujols slumps. If Albert lets you live long enough to ask him, that is.
“It was a bummer being sent down,” he said. “It just kind of snowballed on me, I think. I only have myself to blame as far as that goes.”
Didn’t we string Colby up for that last year? Anybody got any left over rope?
Mather said he visualizes himself succeeding.
I visualize myself dating Olivia Munn. ZOMG, it worked. Forget this DFR, I’ve got business to attend to.
