Random Football Prediction

I would just like to go on record to say that I think New England is going to beat Denver by more than 7 points this weekend.  It's relevant because that is currently the spread.  Denver is playing at home and they have the Chosen One of God at Quarterback.  Nevertheless, were I a betting man (which, as it happens, I am) and, were I in Vegas (which, as it happens, I am not) I would be plunking down some C-notes on New England.  Denver is a mediocre team that has been the recipient of many, many, good breaks the last few weeks.  The miracles have to end.  This is the week.

The New Muppet Movie

Totally rocks. I mean, I'd see a Muppet Movie no matter how good or bad it was. That goes without saying. But the new one--it's actually pretty great. Up there with the old ones (not the first one, of course, but definitely in the same league).  Bret Mackenize (from Flight of the Conchords) wrote some pretty great, singable tunes ("Life's A Happy Song"), the jokes were memorable, the story moved along.  All in all highly recommended.
