Notes for 11/5/2006

Before I get started with this week’s notes, I have to mention the MacT Relief Fund. Yes, you can make a donation to help MacT, the head coach of the Oilers who was fined $10,000 for his comments about McGeough’s blunder the other night. Fittingly, if MacT doesn’t want the money, it will go to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind. It sickens me that McGeough is getting off so easy. His actions the other night simply are not acceptable for a professional level official. By doing nothing, the NHL is basically saying that it’s okay for officials to make calls without a clear view, from locations on the ice where you couldn’t possibly see the play. It completely sucks, and fining MacT is not the right course of action.

Mini Review: The Prestige
Sharon and I went to see The Prestige last night. I enjoyed it, but you have to pay attention. The film jumps around quite a bit, so at times it is hard to tell what is present day, and what is happening in the past. I totally didn’t figure it out until the very end though, so I was happy about that. Of course, once the movie is over, you feel like an idiot because the clues were there the whole time. David Bowie really impressed me, despite having a fairly small part. On the whole, I’d give it 3 out of 5 stars.
