To make things more interesting we have a couple of new movies this week celebrating 70s culture--as if anyone should want to. I'm one of those rare guys who hated the original "Anchorman." It felt like it went on forever even though it was only 90 minutes. The old boy-against-girl story was so shopworn too. The previews for this second one make it seem even worse, so obviously I won't be seeing it. Meanwhile I'm sure I'll watch "American Hustle" on DVD at some point, though watching 70s movies is such a chore because the clothes, hair, cars, and just about everything else sucks so much.
There's also Disney propaganda and some corny movie with talking dinosaurs.
Anyway, to recap here are the matchups this week.
The championship game is:
#3 Chris Dilloway vs.
#4 Andrew Leon
The 3rd Place Game is:
#1 Rusty Webb vs.
#7 Michael Offutt
Now for the matchup that means almost nothing:
#2 David Walston vs.
#6 P.T. Dilloway
And bringing up the rear is the Sacko Bowl featuring:
#5 Maurice Mitchell vs.
#8 Briane Pagel
