Brasil v. USA & Harry Potter v. Christianity?

11 07 2011

Fantastic football! It’s interesting to note who the crowd seems to support throughout the game…

Interesting article about ‘diving’ and ‘flopping’ that came across my news feed:

Also, my sister sent this to me. Interesting article bout the whole Harry Potter series and how the author ties Christian theology into it. All taken with a grain of salt, of course.

And lastly to vent a bit, the final HP movie doesn’t open worldwide on the same date it opens in the States. ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Talking Points with Tim Kawakami

12 03 2007

Excerpted:

“Tim Kawakami is a Mercury News sports columnist, often charitably described as moderately entertaining, occasionally topical and determinedly unfire-able. (We’ve checked on that last one.) He came to the Merc in August 2000, started writing a Page 2 column and migrated to a regular sports column.”

Not the most objective sports columnist but then again, which good ones are? Entertaining to say the least.
