I was perusing the sources of traffic for 18to88.com, and I noticed a small site that I didn’t recognize. Oddly enough, the new blog was like looking in a mirror. An anonymous blogger proclaiming himself a homer, using Bob Sanders as a handle and throwing up posts referencing Watchmen, Battlestar Galactica, and even Smallville’s Kristin Kruek (who this guy loves and we hate).
I don’t know whether we should be flattered that our taste is representative of someone else as well, or worried that some Donnie Darko-like hole in the universe has opened at let in my inter-dimensional twin. All I know is that if I wake up in a red curtained room, I’m going to be seriously pissed.
Ultimately, let me just say, “Welcome to the dance!” to this new blog, because anyone who announces a plan to pimp Gattaca is ok by me.
This story makes me want to puke. Someone is losing their job.
Ooooooh Johnny Franchise. How I love you so…
The Sporting News thinks the Colts need an upgrade at middle linebacker. I think they need an upgrade at the “writer” position. Brackett played wonderfully all year, until he got hurt. They are right that a lack of depth at MLB hurt the Colts, but it’s hard to upgrade the best coverage linebacker in the NFL.
Demond Sanders: I probably would have mentioned this anyway, but since you brought up Smallville, check out the DVR synopsis for tonight’s episode… “Hex” – At Chloe’s birthday party, a mysterious magician switches her and Lois’ bodies; the magician searches for her father’s book of spells so that she can conjure up his spirit; Clark’s deepest wish is granted by the strange magician.

Wow. When will the Smallville writers learn to avoid episodes involving magic, vampires, or children who age unnaturally fast?
