Trips & Travel

I heard on the Howard Stern show this morning that the movie Cinderella Man is outstanding. It's not out yet, but with their radio connections and their New York locale, they got to see a preview of it. Apparently Russell Crowe is great in it. It should be worth checking out.
The two-hour season finale of 24 is tonight. It has a hard act to follow from last night's outstanding season finale of Deadwood. Deadwood had about as many angles going as much in one episode as I can remember, and the cliffhanger with Tolliver being stabbed was great. Ian McShane's portrayal of Al Swearengen deserves multiple awards. There's never been a moment in the entirity of the show that I haven't bought his acting. Then again, that's true for most of the actors on there.
My best friend from high school, Glenn Brown, is getting married in Nashville next month. Details are available at glennandheather.org. The timing is such where I'll be going to Nashville for my 10 year high school reunion, then returning two weeks later for the wedding. But I haven't been home since Christmas, so it'll be just fine to make the two trips like that.
Speaking of the FRHS Class of '95 reunion, if any of my fellow classmates are reading this, you can show up the night of the reunion (June 4, 6:30 PM) with your money and they'll let you in. There had been concern in some circles about a lack of RSVPs, so this is being done to ensure as good of a turnout as possible. Josh Tenisci called me last night and told me that he and Brian Costner will be there for it, and I know that Ronnie Aquino is flying in from the west coast. Should be fun.
One note from my last column: it figures that I knocked Steve Nash for winning the NBA MVP, only for him to go out and finish off the Dallas Mavericks in dramatic fashion with three straight A+ performances. It's only fitting considering that I wrote that on a page that included a picture of Todd MacCullough (read this column for an explanation of the MacCullough factor).
There's so much work-related stuff I want to write about on here, but I can't yet. All on the positive side. Patience, for now. Patience...
