Which X-Men character are you most like? You are Cyclops! You are attractive and strong, in a boy scout republican sort of way. You are set firm in your beliefs, which is not necessarily a bad thing. But often when faced with a conflicting opinion you become defensive and angry and prone to conflict. You [...]
Callisto, Pyro, Magneto, Juggernaut, and Jean Grey Well, I finally saw X-Men: The Last Stand last night. I’d give it an appropriate review, but to be honest, they could have shown Wolverine’s claws shredding waste paper while Mystique was standing there watching him, and I’d give it an A+. That being said, I have a [...]

Why did they even play the game? The Virginia Cavaliers are atop the lacrosse world after a 15-7 drubbing of the Massachusetts Minutemen – they were good for about a minute – in Monday’s NCAA Division I Lacrosse Championship. Congratulations guys!
After a brutal drought, I am finally back to form. I won GOP and the City’s Weekend Caption Contest I, and took second place in GOP and the City’s Weekend Caption Contest II. Whoo!

Today is not about white, sandy beaches. Today is not about cooking hot dogs and hamburgers. Today is about our men and [...]
The 2006 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Championship will be held tomorrow afternoon in my hometown. The undefeated Virginia Cavaliers will face off against the upset-minded Massachusetts Minutemen in the Division I title game. The game starts at 1pm on ESPN. If you’re available, make an effort to watch some of the action. It’s the greatest sport [...]
It’s 9pm and my knees, back, and feet are killing me. Today’s first foray back into jogging did not go as smoothly as planned. And, as usual, I overdid it – trying to do the entire neighborhood loop at a full sprint. I was praying for death by the second block. Obviously, I am carrying [...]

Formula One is in Monaco for the Monaco GP, NASCAR is in Charlotte for the Coca-Cola 600, and the granddaddy of them all, The Indianapolis 500 – [...]« Previous Entries
