For those of you who barely tolerate my baseball ramblings, you can thank your lucky stars that the season is officially kaput for my hapless Detroit Tigers. My kitties, who got declawed post-All Star break, finished up at an Even Steven 81-81. WooHoo! .500 baby!
But oh happy day for some of you. The Bat Cave is likely to be a Baseball Free Zone until at least late March. Enjoy the reprieve while it lasts.
In other news, anyone else out there in Romance Bloglandia watching Boardwalk Empire? My first order of business once I got back to So. Cal. was to watch the first two episodes that were saved on my DVR. So far? I'm liking it. In fact, I'm about thisclose to being hopelessly addicted to it. At the very least it will keep me entertained until Justified comes back for it's second season.
In the Oh Really? department, they've apparently remade True Grit. For those of you not in the know, this book by Charles Portis was first made into a movie back in 1969 starring John Wayne (for which he got his only Oscar). I'll be honest, of all the John Wayne vehicles, I kind of figured that The Searchers would get the remake treatment first - but True Grit isn't necessarily a bad choice. Jeff Bridges is taking over the Wayne role - and he and Josh Brolin certainly look their parts. Matt Damon on the other hand? I'm not so sure. Of all the actors I can envision being in this movie, Damon is pretty far down on the list. But who knows? Maybe he'll do alright....
