So this is a whole week delayed, but I’ll get it in before the new games start. As I somewhat saw coming last week, I lost once again. By the end of Sunday I was losing faith in all of my players, which makes no sense since they all had amazing games. My opponent, the most likely champion of our league, ended up netting 160.36 points, all thanks to his Pittsburgh defense that got him a whopping 47.40 points. I ended up with 143.91 points—this is no easy task—and ended up not winning my matchup all because of my defense, the Philadelphia Eagles.
Literally minutes before the today’s games, I am still having my doubts about the Philadelphia defense. Currently available are Washington and Arizona, who are playing St. Louis and Oakland respectively, and these seem much more attractive than the team who let the Lions score 32 points.
Anywho, back to last week. Except for Randy Moss, Jamaal Charles, and the kicker (who doesn’t really count), all of my players did really well. This week was all on Philip Rivers, Frank Gore, and Tim Hightower.
Rivers threw for over 300 yards, and though he had two picks, he threw for 3 touchdowns, so he more than made up for those mistakes.
Gore had an unbelievable night. Though the 49ers lost in a close game, Gore rushed for over 100 yards and a touchdown, and also had 56 receiving yards along with another touchdown. At the beginning of this game on Monday I was down by about 40 points. Gore was the sole reason why I was even remotely close.
In an embarrassing loss to Carolina, Hightower still managed to rush over 100 yards and got a touchdown.
This week I’m up against Peyton Manning, DeSean Jackson, Adrian Peterson, and the Minnesota defense. Let’s hope Detroit keeps up the incredible performance it had last week, since the defense was what determined the last matchup.
It is 88 degrees and not even 11 am. I guess summer finally appeared
Things in LA are great. I love being in a real big city, you know? It might just be me, but I had a hard time finding true diversity, of people and things to do, in Miami. Maybe I didn’t look hard enough. Regardless, I still miss it.
My job is good. I really like it and enjoy it a lot. I do think that I should eventually go to grad school and get my MBA. There’s this program in USC business school that lets you focus on the business of the film industry, which would be totally awesome.
How is grad school? And how’s the internship going? You must be having a blast in New York. Enjoy it as much as you can; I experience it vicariously through you.
On a side note, I just got a camcorder today. I saw Catfish last weekend, and realized that if you film enough things, you’re bound to fall on a great story. Maybe not something that’s released in theaters, but still a good story nonetheless.
I’ll try to write more. I’ve been slacking a bit on the movies side. Movie tickets here are so expensive!
I just got back from watching The Town. I came across a few articles that mentioned how brilliant Ben Affleck was behind the camera, and how that might be his true calling and not acting. Not only did I think the movie was very well made, I thought the story was quite compelling. Though the premise comes across as your typical bank robber movie, it has a pleasant uniqueness throughout.
Better than the story even are the two main characters and their journey. Ben Affleck, in my opinion, did quite well in this role—he was extremely believable as a conflicted felon who is trying to right his path (keep an eye out for this one Leo). And Rebecca Hall is so talented; I really hope I see more of her. Jeremy Renner is also another one who can do no harm. Even the Boston accents, which I am not a fan of since it’s so easy for them to come across as phony, were well portrayed by those who had them. Gasp! I almost forgot to mention the beautiful Jon Hamm. Though good in this role, the similarties between this FBI agent and Don Draper were too much for my taste. I’d like to see him branch out into more challenging roles, since we all know he can play the hardass.
The icing on the cake was seeing Titus Welliver on the screen. He’s also made a return to Sons of Anarchy. Let’s hope he sticks around.
Gasp! Desmond will be on SVU. Desmond, or Modern Family? #MissingLost
