Don't, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, see this film. I entered the theater in a fairly good mood and left with a seething desire to kill myself. This movie is the embodiment of everything that is bad in Hollywood. This waste of time masquerading as a film is nothing more than an excuse for Clooney and friends to play dress up. Missing from this "film" is a plot, character development, interesting or amusing dialogue and credible acting. As an angry homage, someone should force the cast to pull a heist in order to pay back all moviegoers that were duped into watching this nonsense.

The Crue is Back!
Awesome! Motley Crue has reunited for a world tour to promote their upcoming greatest hits album. My buddy went to the concert last night where they announced it and he says they still totally rock. How all four of those guys are still alive is a mystery to me. Read more here.
Jesse, Go Home
Its now official: Bush won Ohio. Maybe Jesse Jackson will shut his mouth and go back to impregnating girls. Read more here.
Former Atlanta Braves pitcher, Denny Neagle, was busted for soliciting "services" from a call girl. Now, the Rockies have forfeited his $19 million dollar contract. That's really gotta suck.
The Government and Baseball
I've heard many conservatives complaining about the threat of government intervention against Major League Baseball due to the steroid controversy. Critics ponder, "What's next?" If the government butts its nose in baseball, why not football or movies? I, too, do not think its an appropriate function of government to regulate a sport. There is one major difference about baseball, however. Baseball is a government sanctioned monopoly. As such, it is illegal for you or I to start up a rival baseball league. This is not the case with Football or Basketball, both of which have seen rival leagues come and go. I think, instead of regulating the steroid issue, the government should step in and take away monopoly status from MLB. This will put the fear of God into the league, and maybe they will clean up there act. If not, things will be governed by the free market and other citizens will be free to set up a league for steroid free athletes.
