What is it about sports movies...

...that always make me cry???

We watched "Invincible" and "We Are Marshall" this past week, and I cried in both of them. In fact, I cried practically throughout "We Are Marshall". I think it's the whole "based on a true story" part that gets to me. "The Rookie", "Miracle", they all get me choked up. "Angels in the Outfield"...not so much.

I don't know why it took me so long to watch "Invincible." I don't think I knew Marky Mark was in it. That would have upped it's priority, that's for sure. Hotness.



Speaking of movies, I saw "He's Just Not That Into You" on Friday night. I didn't have high expectations for it, but I was excited to go out with some girlfriends. Well, I thought it was really good actually! Really cute. And it portrays the crazy neurotic obsessive single girl very well, I thought. And Bradley Cooper is super good-looking.


I've been watching the Grammy's tonite. It makes me more than a little sad that I don't know half the songs. What's wrong with me??? I blame it on the fact that the new Lake FM radio station plays awesome 80's jams and I'd rather listen to that than the pop/rock stations I usually listen to. I'm so out of the loop. I must be 28 or something...

How can you knock Angels in the Outfield? That is Spencer's finest role outside of 3rd Rock From the Sun and How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.

HA!! I love the new Lake FM!!! As soon as I turned it on for the first time and they were playing "The Politics of Dancing" by Re-Flex, I was THEIRS...

I love Bradley Cooper. Have you watched Alias? He's in that.

Hey Karen,

Funny thing as I do read your blog though up until a few weeks ago I was pretty sure you didn't know who I was...lol.

Regarding Bradley Cooper: ever since seeing him on the Wedding Crashers (as a bad guy) I cannot get him to be un-evil, in my eyes. Perhaps it is his eyes as they are a bit creepy!
