OT January 7th, 2010

Anyone ever figure something out long after the fact?  For instance, some time ago brayden04 said today is a great day, probably 3 months later I realized he might have made a triple double that day and I missed an opportunity to ask him about it.  

Or the time I thought acblue was correcting my grammar, some time later I discovered he was possibly referencing this, which would explain my initial confusion.  Or maybe he wasn't, either way I'm still a little confused but that was still an amusing read.

Recently, fogel cracked wise with "milk is gay".  Four hours after reading that I literally sat up in bed and said out loud, "Harvey Milk" (for whom I will not provide a link, politics), then went back to sleep.  That one was definitely strange. 

Also, the perfect sport movie was once discussed.  Can't locate the thread but someone, perhaps marc w. or pdb, commented to the effect that most sports movies were just a setting for something else.  Romance, drama, thriller.  And I agreed with that, and by and large still do.  HOWEVER (there's always a but), every winter as ski season approaches, it's a personal tradition to watch Downhill Racer.  I love the story, directing, cinematography, all of it.  Great '70's movie, and possibly a pure sports movie.  The athlete, the ego, the training, the failures, the great success, the women, and eventually the realization that youth will be served and time is fleeting.  Fantastic sports movie, can't believe it slipped my mind.  

Also, is interested in a pre-event meet up this Saturday?  I'm up for getting there a bit early and having a beer, maybe meet some new people.
