Box office draw to the box office

In a blockbuster battle that divides the nation neatly along gender lines, the eagerly awaited Sex in the City is attempting to steal the crown – or rather battered fedora – from Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, the best-selling new release of the year so far, on its opening weekend.

Choices....choices.....sit in a theatre watching some septuagenarian or next to a plethora of giggling vaginas.

Many critics have given Sex and the City lukewarm reviews, with some complaining that, at two and a half hours, it is 30 minutes too long.

I would have expected that to be, two hours longer then it should have been.

In some quarters, Sex and the City's failure to attract anyone but women and gay males to cinemas represents a social malaise. "For reasons that seem symptomatic of a much deeper problem, Sex and the City seems to have become the movie that no man wants to see or at least admit to wanting to see," said Carina Chocano, film critic of the LA Times.

I'll tell you the closest I'll get to this movie is downloading the anal extravaganza "Sex in the Shitty".

No happy feet for Penguins

The Detroit Red Wings wrecked the Pittsburgh Penguins' home-ice advantage and gave themselves a shot to hoist the Stanley Cup in Hockeytown.

Jiri Hudler snapped a third-period tie for the Red Wings, who rallied from an early deficit to beat the Penguins 2-1 Saturday night and grab a 3-1 lead in the finals.

Detroit will get the first of three potential chances to win the Cup back home in Game 5 on Monday night.

Does anyone really care?......Let's look at the picture again. BTW shouldn't it be two girls one cup?

Nyet results

More than 300 Russian servicemen committed suicide last year, despite higher spending and reforms to try to improve army conditions and equipment, the country's chief military prosecutor has said.

Rights groups and some former commanders say the high rate of suicides in the Russian army is caused by a culture of violence and negligence by officers. Hazing, when conscripts are bullied by older soldiers, is rampant and tens of thousands of young men try every year to avoid the compulsory draft.

And it's only going to get worse. I hear they've made watching the Sex in the City movie mandatory.

Summer Olympics give me that spring feeling

Double-amputee sprinter Oscar Pistorius won his appeal to compete for a place in the Beijing Olympics.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled that the 21-year-old South African is eligible to race against able-bodied athletes, overturning a ban imposed by the International Association of Athletics Federations.

I wonder if this hasn't started thing you know they'll be allowing....oh I don't know......little teeny, tiny, body builders and new mothers with their babies to compete.
