The NFL in London

October 29th, 2007 1 comment

Al Michaels once commented during a Green Bay Packers away game (there were quite a few Packer fans in SF, Seattle, or wherever they were playing that week) that if there were to be a Redskins/Dallas game played on Mars, there would be Packer and Cub fans outside the venue in the hotel lobby. This photo, from the Giants/Fish game at Wembley Stadium in the London Borough of Brent this past weekend, confirms this.

This fan is also violating one of GQ magazines top 10 sports fashion fopaws, by wearing a jersey to a game in which his/her team is not playing. I personally think this fopaw is flawed, as the Packer fan is obviously there to cheer against the G men to give the Pack a better position in the overall NFC standings, in the hope of furthering our chances for home field advantage. Any little bit of energy helps.

Numbers in film

A very cool collection of clips from 100 different movies, using numbers starting from 100 in descending order. Very pleased to see the swallow scene from The Holy Grail made the cut (“Listen, in order to maintain airspeed velocity….), very dissapointed to see “nine times Mrs. Bueller, nine times” didn’t.

Nasty keyboards

If you’re a germaphobe and can’t stand the thought of all those nasty little microbes squatting in your keyboard not paying any rent, and you happen to have a dishwasher, you could try this. More than brilliant. Kudos, Coudal.

Jack Black’s new film about two guys who run a video store. The videos get erased, so just like Hollywood, they remake them. Hilarious.
