Alright, seriously, what the fuck?

I've had three unique visitors today, from three different search engines, who were all searching for "Sean Been". It leads them to this post. This raises two questions. First, are they really searching for Sean Bean? Ya know, the dude who was in Patriot Games and Goldeneye? Second, if they are searching for Sean Bean, why? I assume it's because he was in that movie "Flightplan", which Matt said sucks? FWIW, I read the plot summary at the the Movie Spoiler, and it sounds really, really stupid.

By the way, some poking around the cast list of Flightplan reveals that they're doing a remake of the Wicker Man. Now, I haven't seen the original, but this still pisses me off for some reason. Hollywood sucks.

And in other site news, today we pushed past the previous record and officially made September my largest month since reloading this blog. Granted, about a thousand of those hits are from me, but whatever. I'm up to about 6,500 visitors since the beginning of May. Doesn't sound like much, but then again, I'm not that good. Thanks for stopping by. I'll try not to bore you to death during the off-season. Mostly going to write about music, the LA Kings, UCLA football and basketball, Illinois basketball, the hot stove league, and whatever else strikes my fancy.

I should have trusted Welch. Flightplan reeked to high heaven.

UCLA and Illinois Basketball?! Come now. Focus on the ACC and get some real basketball.

ACC? I prefer men's basketball.

Yeah, but who's gonna remake the Iron Maiden song about "The Wicker Man"?

Geez, it must suck to see those "men" of the Big 10 pounded year after year in the ACC-Big 10 Challenge.

Face it: there's only one conference worth following in men's hoops, and it starts with an "A," ends with an "E," and has "tlantic Coast Conferenc" in the middle. Other conferences may occasionally vomit up a contender or two, but for consistent quality, you're traveling Tobacco Road, my friend.

Well, if you call it basketball when the refs call fouls on every breath an opponent takes, while letting ACC teams steam-roll their opponents. Seriously, UNC was a great team, but the stuff they called on Augie and the stuff they let go on May was ridiculous. Illinois played 5 on 8 in that game and still had a shot.

And frankly, I only remember a couple of games from the Big 10/ACC challenge this year. One was a flat out, old fashioned ass-whupping over Wake Forest. The other? Well, I'm sure Duke fans will look back on missing the final four and be satisfied that they beat MSU when it *didn't* count.

I hate the ACC. I hate the crap out of it so much. Ugh. Also College Basketball, unless it is the U. of Utah outplaying UNC, Arizona and for 35 minutes, UK (that's three number one seeds, kids). That would have been the greatest run in history, and yeah, greater than NC State. Fucking Kentucky. God damn it. Fucking I don;t want to hear it. I hate basektball. Watching Jordan gut my Jazz. Fuck him. Those were great finals, and the Jazz get no credit. Fuck basketball. FUCK IT!
