That Monday Night Football game (Bears vs. Cardinals) was a head-scratcher. Don’t get me wrong, it was one of the most notable games I’ve ever had the pleasure of watching. It was a freaky game, just not a very good game. A 20-point-late-third-quarter comeback with no offensive scoring at all (first time that’s happened in the history of the NFL, by the way)? Winning a game where Rex Grossman threw four interceptions, and lost two fumbles? That missed field goal at the end? Wacky stuff. Team of destiny, or did the Cardinals just send this one into the weeds? Who knows. One could actually understand why Dennis Green was so tweaked in his postgame “interview” though. Here’s the clip on youtube.
Kristy and I saw The Departed over the weekend at some point. It was a fine movie. Probably one of the better flicks I’ve seen in a while. Damon, Nicholson, Wahlberg, Sheen, Baldwin, etc. made up a great cast. The authentic Boston flavor made it even better (real scenery, since it was mostly filmed here, and some Dropkick Murphys rocking out as well). I highly recommend it. I didn’t even mind the ending that some other people I know have took some issue with. I will not spoil it for anyone though.
