Harry Potter = Awesome. However, you wont want to take your young siblings. I wrote before that I expected it to be good, and it was. If you’re like me and you have read all the books, you have been (by the earlier films) and will be amazed out how the movie looks exactly as you imagined it.
It seems the snow gods have heard our prayers and answered with a significant snowfall. I took a call from one friend (MB) this evening who asked me to be his moral compass. Fear not my U of U and UW friends, it had nothing to do with marriage. If you don’t ski or simply don’t observe the Sabbath you might find it laughable that he was wrestling with whether or not to ski the “pow” tomorrow. I’m just glad I will be traveling back to school and wont have to fight the temptation.
Meanwhile, BYU had another good win tonight. Granted, it was against the hapless Thunderbirds of SUU, but a win is a win. My roommate Marc left a message with his expert analysis, but his message was completely unintelligible so you’ll have to read the BYU press release.
It looks like MWC Commissioner Craig Thompson must have been a good boy this year, because it appears that all MWC bowl eligible teams will get to go to the ball, er bowl. The latest from SI’s Stewart Mandel has BYU playing Toledo (where is Toledo?) in the Vegas Bowl, Utah vs. NC State in the Emerald Bowl, TCU vs. Iowa St. in the Houston Bowl, Colo St. vs. Navy in the Poinsettia, and New Mexico vs. Memphis (they play football too?) in the Fort Worth Bowl. Happy New Year.
By the way, how does beating a weak Pac-10 team (Stanford) make Notre Dame’s BCS slot “secure.” Stanford got beat by UC-Davis and ND barely beat Stanford. Oh, and after last week’s performance by Reggie Bush, is there any doubt about his Heisman supremacy? I think he is easily the most exciting player in all of football–whatever level. Also, the Big-12 and Big-10 = seriously overrated. Take that East Coast Bias.
