There Ain't Shit On TV Tonight
With no Avs or Nuggs in action tonight, it was a harsh night to be in front of a TV set on a cold wintry evening. Had my computer not been flipping me the bird late last night, I was going to post about how the Nugg-Pups absolutely destroyed the Raptors. So much so, that I think I saw a blurb that their coach got shit-canned today. Nice work, fellas. My Nuggets are looking pretty fierce right about now, as long as they're not playing the Lakers or I don't have money riding on them (see: Thanksgiving evening).
In the midst of this Wed evening hellhole of a sports night (sorry, I can't get into College B-Ball in Dec, ESPN & YB), I did happen to catch a little of Nightmare on Elm Street 3 (I think). Shit, that took me way back. I was a fan of all of the first three versions. Seeing portions of that movie actually injected the same kind of fright in me normally reserved for seeing the B'cos defensive squad take the field. But, what was really alarming was seeing, I think, Johnny Depp in this movie. Now I'm no movie buff, but isn't he supposed to be some sort of premier actor? Really? He was in Nightmare on Elm St 3? And his character? Some rich teenager in a half shirt hooking up with the delusional poor chick across the street. Brilliant work. At least his role ended with him getting sucked into the mattress of his bed and Depp's blood squirting all over the room. Bravo.
TV better be better tomorrow night, or maybe it's time to schedule another Das Boot banquet.
