Watch your six! Raptors got a new alpha!

I, Rod Melotte, am cutting ties with Donald Trump.  I expect to be sued and my chances of becoming Miss Universe will drop dramatically!

Just Do It.

Just is the most useless word in the English vocabulary. It's weak and meaningless.  Yea yea Nike used it in a slogan they copied from murderer Gary Gilmore who's last words before he was executed were "Just Do It" but you can delete "just" 95% of the time and a sentence will be stronger.  "Do It"  Don't just think about doing it, do it.

*****************
Luke Ridnour of the Orlando Magic, Memphis Grizzlies, Charlotte Hornets, Oklahoma City Thunder, Toronto Raptors, has been traded 5 times this week.  That has to be some sort of record.

The MLB All-Star game should be interesting this year with the National League All Stars going up against the Kansas City Royals.  hmmmmm something needs to be fixed with this fan voting thing as clearly the people of Kansas City have way way too much time on their hands.  At the moment 7 of the 9 starters are Royals.

Speaking of baseball, the Brewers have had a really crushing schedule this year so far. At one point they had basically 43 straight days of work.  They had one day off but that was a travel day.  Then they had 1 real day off and something like 25 straight games after that (all numbers are from memory of a few days ago).

The rest of the year they have more frequent days off.


*********************
We went to see Jurassic World yesterday. I give it a 7.5.  Could have been higher but the children in the movie irritated me and frankly there were so many sub plot threads that were meaningless that I think the movie was 4 hours and then they cut out 2 hours leaving threads of unresolved plots.

We were talking about the flick afterword and we just kept say what was this and what was that and so forth.  I think there is an entire movie on the cutting room floor.

Hot and Hot
HOWEVER - we did not go to the movie for the deep social values and complicated plot lines. We came for dinosaurs and holy crap they were seriously awesome!  People cheered the finale' and clapped and DJ jumped out of her dream lounger once.  I was really hoping both children would have been eaten though!

Just eat me
Chris Pratt was excellent and Bryce Dallas Howard is a knock out red head. Jake Johnson from New Girl is in the movie.

The family involved are from Madison.

num num num - I kiss you with my teethy's
 
Favorite line "A promise tomorrow is worth a lot less than trying today."  

In the trailers a movie is coming out called The Martian which I immediately got the book and am reading it.  It was recommended to me about a year ago and I was intrigued but seeing there is a movie - I had to read it.
