I just realized that my mobile has been powered off since December.
I never carry my phone with me. I am so fucked in the event of an emergency.
Film idea: A long-suffering [insert sports team] fan learns that he's terminally ill.
a. The fan vows to witness his beloved team win a championship before he dies by any means necessary (Tonya Harding?).
b. The fan dies but lives on as a ghost because of an unresolved issue (never seeing his team win a championship).
c. A Cubs fan dies and discovers that Chicago is teeming with ghost Cubs fans and that evil ones (reprobates who do not want to go to Hell?) instigated the Bartman incident.
That's what I have so far.
Can ghosts with unresolved issues even go to Hell? Or are ghosts only allowed to linger on Earth if they're destined for Heaven?
The subject of ghosts is one of my blind spots.
I caught a bit of a hockey game at a bar.
The power play clock was sponsored by an Indian casino.
More sports should adopt power-play-ish stipulations to accelerate games and add intrigue.
In basketball: After fifteen team fouls, every player who commits a foul must sit for two minutes without a replacement on the court.
In baseball: For every extra inning, each team must eliminate a position from its line-up (pitcher/designated hitter and catcher excluded). Managers must debate whether to sacrifice offense or defense.
» The promos for tonight's episode of CSI: Miami show the body of a murdered flight attendant rolling off a conveyor belt onto an airport baggage carousel.
Unless the baggage handler(s) were involved in her murder (unlikely), how could a corpse ever reach a carousel?
» Chevy's current ad campaign for its Silverado is essentially Howie Long calling other trucks faggots.
Finally: I filled out a bracket.
