Last Friday I bought the box set of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy, in widescreen form. Between sleep and work, it took me 72 hours to get through all three movies. I started "Fellowship of the Ring" Tuesday night, and finished "Return of the King" this evening. The movies make a lot more sense watching them back to back, instead of a year between each.
"The Day After Tomorrow" was as awful as I expected it to be - that's all I'm going to say about it.
Navy's lacrosse team very nearly won the NCAA championship last Monday, with Syracuse needing a late surge to win yet another title. I was actually rooting against Navy in its quarterfinal match - but that had just a bit to do with the fact that the Midshipmen were playing Cornell. :-)
Everyone is saying that Smarty Jones is going to complete the Triple Crown tomorrow, but I just don't see it happening. I can't say why. I would definitely like to see a Triple Crown win sometime during my life (the last was three years before I was born).
