How? It's a great sport, and obviously the most popular in the world. It's fun to play and entertaining to watch.
Entertaining? A bunch of men chasing after a ball for 90 minutes? (Yes I know there's more to it than that but to be honest I don't give a shit)

I prefer tennis, to play and to watch...

Hockey is man's greatest athletic creation. In what other game can you put someone in a coma and walk away with a 5 minute penalty?

I went to a Flyers game a week ago. They lost but it was so much fun. Hockey is underrated and one of the most exciting sports to watch.

You can sum up pretty much any sport in that way.

And that's why all sport is ridiculously futile bollocks.

Dick Clark, the man that never ages, died yesterday of a massive heart attack following a medical procedure at age 82.

No, it was perfectly sincere. I hope he recovers and that it won't prove an impediment to his career the way that severe illnesses often can.

It's one of the few celebrity deaths which doesn't just make me acknowledge their loss, but makes me genuinely sad. They come around every now and then, and I thought the Beastie Boys were invincible. I guess he'll never get to be like that old man version of himself he dressed up as on The Sounds of Science cover frown...

I like what I've heard of the Beastie Boys, but I'm not a huge fan or anything. That being said losing a battle to cancer is incredibly sad, RIP. I'll watch Hell is Other Robots and listen to some of their music in honor of Adam Yauch.

I'm actually feeling really sad right now about the death of Maurice Sendak.  He was one of my heroes, but at least he had a good long life and produced several children's classics.

Ray Bradbury passed away today. My exposure to the guy's work is limited to Fahrenheit 451 and one or two short stories--and my exposure to his influence on popular culture is limited to this song--but that's still kind of a bummer.

He was ninety-one years old, though, so he certainly had a good run. Which, in the end, is all you can really ask for people to say about you when you die. It's much better than being remembered as having had a bad run, at least.

Wow, I didn't know he was still alive.  Still, 91 is pretty good if most of those are good years.

really sad.  Not only he wrote an awesome sci fi novel, but he also wrote the short story that inspired the film, THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS.  He became good friends with Ray Harryhausen.

I've seen a few people posting on the facebooks about what a tragedy this is, and I consider it to be an overreaction. 91 years is an age most of us don't ever reach. And the people lamenting and beating their breasts didn't know him personally or anything like that.

Edit - I'm not saying it's wrong to be saddened at the idea that a great person has passed away but looking at some of the posts, you'd think they were talking about their grandfather or something.

Thanks to you, I'm now listening to that girl sing about pictures of some guy's dick. Thanks to you and youtube, I suppose. Anyhow. That's the effect that Ray Bradbury's death has had on me so far. I'm listening to a crazy girl sing a love song to a penis.

Hah, I know exactly what song you're talking about, tnuk. Isn't it just delightful?

And TMC: I agree completely. If anyone lives to be ninety-one, we should call that a miracle, not a tragedy. Also, I don't think Bradbury has been actively writing or publishing for years, so it's not like his death will have as great an impact on the cultural landscape as it might have had he died in, say, 1960.  I don't mean that callously; I'm just sayin' is all. The word "tragedy" seems more applicable when someone dies at a younger age, during their so-called "prime" or whatever.

Nora Ephron died yesterday. That's actually kind of a bummer; she was a funny lady, and seventy-one isn't that old. I shall have to watch some romantic comedies--preferably ones starring Meg Ryan and/or Tom Hanks--in her honor.

He was on TV a lot back in the 70's (here in New Zealand) but I hadn't seen or heard much of him since then. Thus I was astonished to see he was till acting when the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire movie came out.
