Digress totally here (sorry), but Demi Moore looked so unbelievably good in Ghost. I don't know if it was the short hair, or that it was before she got Courtney-Cox-thin (yuck) -- but she was sooooo hot in Ghost (Indecent Proposal was about the same period, she looked amazing in that film too). Demi does NOTHING for me now.


Demi looked really good to me in Disclosure. Completely stunning. Wowza! :-L



Back to the topic at hand, this was the only first round matchup that I didn't know where I would wind up voting. Tonight, I'm in a comedy mood, so I went with A League of Their Own. Both are fantastic movies though. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

had to vote for Field of Dreams if for no other reason than the amazing monologue Darth Vader does at the end of the movie ;-D

Field of Dreams - great movie, better book called "Shoeless Joe" by a great Canadian WP Kinsella. ;-D ;-D


I think the "Great" is implied when you say Canadian

Field for sure ;-D

Back in college we went on a drunken road trip through Dubuque County, IA on the gravel roads. We wound up at the Field of Dreams. Maybe it was just the 12 Busch Lights I had, but I wasn't that impressed with it. Its a ball diamond surrounded by corn. I guess when you grow up in a state surrounded by corn it doesn't seem like a big deal.

For me, I would be more concerned with the fact that you were drinking Busch Light. :-o Since you were in college, I'll give you a pass, though. I lived on The Beast throughout college at $4.99 a case. :-°

I never really got into the Beast. Busch Light was pretty much the status quo at my college. If money was really tight you'd get the Natty Light. And when it came to kegs, it didn't get any better than Keystone Light for a whopping $35 a keg!

Natty Light. It's amazing how the names are the same when the location isn't. Keystone is better than Natty Light but you could get 2 of the latter for that price. I remember pulling on a keg for a week. :-P

And why were you so concerned with getting light beers in college?? Poor choice. :-t :-D

Does anyone else see AA as a bitter old man trying to return soup at a deli? :-b
