Rod Tidwell: I am a valuable commodity! I go across the middle! I see a dude coming at me, trying to kill me, I tell myself “Get killed. Catch the ball!’ BOO YA! Touchdown! I make miracles happen!
Jerry Maguire: Rod…
Rod Tidwell: I’m from Arizona Jerry! I broke Arizona records! I went to Arizona State! I’m a Sun Devil, man!
Jerry Maguire: And now you want Arizona dollars?

First week of NFL. I made sure that I caught a few games. In my opinion, the biggest disappointment of this week was The Green Bay Packers. I expected them to win in Lambeau Field. Instead they got shut down and Brett Favre continued where he left off last season – 2 interceptions. Favre looks more like Kyle Boller and as much I hate to say it, it would be Aaron Rodgers time at Green Bay before the end of the season.

Yet another disappointment was the Raiders getting shut down. Brooks was sacked more times (7) than he threw passes for completions(6). Former ASU QB Walter was sacked a couple of times as well. Raiders offensive line needs to get their act together soon else art shell is going to have a painful return to football.

five reasons you should watch vettaiyadu Villaiyadu

leave a comment »

5. You liked Kakkha Kakkha and wouldn’t mind watching a newer version of it with different actors.

4. You have never seen any serial killer movie and want to watch to snippets of all movies in 2 1/2 hours. It is like sports fans who miss games catch all the action on Sportscenter

3. You are an aspiring music director and want to know how not to do the background score for a movie.

2. You are a big Kamalhassan fan (or should it be “big” Kamalhassan fan) and watched every single flick of his.

1. You have nothing else to do.

P.S: Can someone who watched this movie please tell me what this Raghavan instinct is all about?

the straight lines between me and the two TV’s were hanging a right angle on me. A large TV with the ASU game on it and a small one with Agassi hanging in the game by the thinnest of threads. This was one of the times where both the games ended as I wanted. ASU won but I think it was a lacklustre display. I was expecting atleast 50 point but we won 35-14.

The headlines belonged to Andre Agassi who beat a much younger and much higher ranked opponent in Marco Baghdatis. I used to hate Agassi early in his career because he defeated Boris Becker on the way to his first wimbledon title. Over the years, my admiration for the guy has gone up a few notches. To play at this level for this long is very very hard especially when you have to leave Steffi Graf home and come to play and practice :-). The man played a five setter again and wriggled out with a win. I will be rooting for him against Becker- this one is Benjamin and not Boris. Rooting against Boris – no way
