It’s been a week now since the Boston Marathon bombings, but I just wanted to write a short post saying that my heart goes out to all the victims.
This was an unbelievable act of ugly violence and not one individual in that marathon deserved to go through something like that. The fact that the two men responsible for the crime have now been captured (one of them killed) is little comfort, I find.
Should we feel sorry for Tiger Woods for all the ridicule he got a few years ago? Yes, he was successful in the beginning and was able to rise to the top. Then came marriage etc. Next thing you he’s trying to escape from his wife because he was caught cheating. Was he not ready to settle down? Because off all that Tiger got a lot of negative press, people were disgusted by him and sponsors walked away. He was at the bottom of the bottom. He tried to compete but he just was not as good as he used to be. Something changed him.
When signing up for a sports league, any time of the year, you are usually aware of what you signed up for. That being either being recreational or competitive. Those who sign up for recreational are there to have fun. They don’t care who really wins as long as they have a good time. For those who like the challenge and drive to win. Maybe a competitive league is more for you. These leagues are for people who are not there just to have fun. Fun is winning and working hard for it. That’s what drives you. Its rare, but there are times were you join a recreational league and there is a group of people who decide to make it more competitive.
I don’t know what the weather is like where you are, but it’s starting to feel a little more like spring here. This is a great thing. After 7 months of heavy coats, boots destroyed by salt and slush, fingers and toes frozen at the bus stop – the baby rays of sunshine starting to peek through the gray April clouds is the most divine blessing this year has bestowed upon us.
How many video game to movie adaptations can you say are actually good? None? Not many? Some?
It’s one thing gamers love to see is a movie based on their favorite video game. However, now a days it’s to scary and to risky as the film industry just butchers them as it hits the big screen. Everything is wrong. Almost as if it was done deliberately to just take your money. Because they know you will most likely see it. Seeing these bad movies are just witnessing one disaster after another. How much more can we take! At least now they are starting the get the super hero movies right. But what about video game movies? Are they doomed forever or will we ever see a light at the end of the tunnel of garbage? But let’s see what we’ve had to endure with.
