What I Did, Instead of Watching the Browns

I meant to post this sooner, but oh well...Monday night the Cleveland Browns played the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football...I've grown tired of how poorly this team has been run since 1999...I've grown tired of the crappy players and the lame excuses...I gave up on the Browns this year...

There was no way I was going to drive myself crazy watching this game Monday night...I was already crazy enough, because our FOX affiliate bought the rights to show the game locally for those who don't have cable and what-not...I was enraged by this...Why? Because I watch "House." That prick is my kind of doctor...

So, what did I do Monday night? I thought I'd make a list of the things I did...My friend -A likes to make lists...She's very good at at...And write some great blogs...Check her out... http://www.weeklyadventuresordinarygirl.com/

Now, here's my list of what I did instead of watching the Browns game...

1. Continued my campaign of blasting FOX 8's message board, and twitter account, for not showing "House." They did end up showing it at 7:00PM Tuesday night...I DVRed it...

2. I watched some of the Columbus Bluejackets game with my kids...We also jumped over to the Boston Bruins game...Wasn't happy to see them lose to the Islanders...I'm a Ranger fan...Screw the Islanders!

3. After the kids were in bed, and sound a sleep...It was time for Mrs. Beeze and I to spend some quality time bumpin' of the uglies...

4. After that we had a snack and watched the movie "Crash"...I had been wanting to see this since it came out, and I have no idea why we haven't...The Mrs. bought it last week, so we threw it in...

I'm not here to give a full blown movie review, but this movie was awesome...I've never seen a movie delve into race, racism, and racial stereotypes like this...It really shows how truly dark we can be...It slaps you in the face with brutally honest racism...Then kicks you in the groin with how f**ked up and wrong stereotypes can be...Just to belt you again, with a stereotype being right...There's twists and turns not just in the story, or the characters...But also n the viewer...

The cast was great...The only person who stunk was Brendan Fraser...His character is a douche bag...And he pulls it off okay, since he is a douche bag...But honestly, his best role was in Encino Man...Everything else was crap!

If you haven't seen "Crash" check it out...

5. After that, I started reading a book called "The Five Hole Stories." two of my favorite topics combined...Sex and Hockey...How can you go wrong?

Later, The Beeze.

Great post. We seem to agree on much.

1.) Crash was an amazing movie. Easily Top 10 all time.

2.) The Browns, even for the most diehard fans, have become absolutely impossible to stomach.

3.) There is nothing better than sex and hockey.

Just about the only thing we don't agree on is the sorry ass New York Rangers. Go Isles!!

At least we have Notre Dame and the Cleveland Browns in common.

Crash really was great, and it's now in my top ten...

Go RNAGERS! LOL!

In general I agree with everything Fensterblau said.
THANKS FOR THE PLUG! I am a lister aren't I... oddly enough in my "non-blogging" life I'm not a lister, and it shows in my pantry... ;)

Crash was a wonderful movie. The scene with the little girl when she jumps in front of her father, I just started bawling.

You know, as the story was going I saw that scene coming, and was dreading it...My wife was bawling...They really get you with that one...It was so well done.
