Flopping, Diving, and Chipping

I may or may not have just called out a 13 year old girl of diving and compared her to Sidney Crosby when she totally flopped on the ground after being fouled by my daughter in a middle-school basketball game.  Ok, I totally did that.  But it’s not like I’m proud of it, I’m just pointing out my own flaws in […]

Random Movie Review: More good movies!

The run of good movies is still going!  Last time I wrote a movie review, it was to praise two movies that we had lucked out with and all enjoyed watching…a thing that rarely, if ever, happens in this house.   But, that trend has not ended (so far).   We just watched two more really, really good movies.  How […]
