"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."

Yup. And if they needed a picture of the stadium while empty, there's probably a file photo of last year's Utah game they could have used.

I'm a little surprised that the interviewer didn't recognize that when Jim Harbaugh says, "you might have walked up late," the appropriate response is to run the stadium steps.

Free music, no BYOB, but there's a beer garden and food vendors. The vibe is righteous. Stop by Ray's Red Hots and treat yourself to a Polish, Chicago style on a toasted bun.

"Carrie & Lowell" is beautiful and devastating. Hoping to see the show on Monday.

Thanks for posting this (sad) update. What an incredible gift she gave these last months of her life. She really did more living in her short time on earth than most will ever do.

They called it Muppets Tonight. It was hosted by a big purple guy with pink dreads named Clifford. They tried to mix the old Muppets variety show with sort of a Tonight Show backdrop. I really wanted to like it -- I was in college at the time and Muppets held a place of reverence in my heart. In the end, it felt like watching a disappointing sequel to a favorite old film.
I'll be looking forward to seeing what they do with this one, though, because I'm a sucker.

The museum sounds like a good time. I'll see if I can convince my son to do that with me.

Mike Birbiglia is great. I recommend his movie Sleepwalk With Me. So does every NPR weekend listener.

It is great to get informative recaps of the softball games. Nice job with that!
As for me, I feel like when we refer to female athletes by their first names in situations where we wouldn't with male athletes*, we undermine what they're doing on the field by making it cute. First names are how you refer to little girls on the playground. Last names are for athletes who are better at sports than I am.
*I understand there are exceptions. See Denard, for example.

At first glance I thought the title to this post was "Big Ten '14 - '15 Regular Season Welp."

Please tell me you're not suggesting that if a child is adopted into a family, he or she is less of a 'real' family member than if they born into the family and shared genetic material. I'm a bit confused about the OSU bloodline part of your comment. It's possible I'm reading this wrong and through biased (and defensive) eyes. If so, I apologize.
The kid has grown up in and around football. I'd say that's in his favor, and would be a contributing factor in college coaches giving him a look.

...as long as it's played on a frozen pond or lake in front of nobody, except maybe a couple kids in snow pants. When the two teams come back inside to get hot chocolate, they can argue in front of everybody about who won.

That's only appropriate. We've also had seven years of actual football that has been pretty lame.
