Coop, there are two demos for RF:G available for you to try, one for SP, the other MP.  I haven't gone back to try to finish the SP demo yet, as I must not be playing it right.

There are temperatures that are bearable outdoors that are not bearable indoors by dint of the difference in airflow.  Even a light breeze makes 90 outside much more bearable than a dark apartment at 85 because the air flow helps keep you cooler.

I've had one player (a gutter runner) KILLED by a rock thrown by a fan on a kickoff.  D-E-A-D!

Was he dressed as Santa Claus?

I remember our AC breaking down on the first day of summer one year when we lived in Vegas.  It was not a pleasant experience by any stretch. 

But to me, having to bundle up is extremely uncomfortable.  Temperature regulation is as much an issue in the winter as it is summer, not to mention having to keep up with the layers as you shed them.  As an office worker, I'm only exposed to the elements for 30-60 minutes a day.  The rest of the time, I'm in a climate-controlled office where wearing multiple layers just overheats you quickly.  And I'd rather not keep up with fifteen pounds of shed clothing when I get ready to leave for the day.

I think Time Warner does not believe in the freedom of information.  I was attempting to pull up the Hacker's diet from my bookmarks via the Firefox address bar and got a bit ahead of myself.  Time Warner likes to presume to attempt to assist me when I screw something like this up, but I think that their search results in this instance may not have been truly motivated to help me in my search...

Here's one that might be on Pete's list of films to watch (although I could be mistaken).

Quote
New talent Robert Siegel (writer of THE WRESTLER) marks his feature film directorial first with BIG FAN, a move Rolling Stone calls “…a directing debut of potent promise”. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year, BIG FAN chronicles the narrow-minded pursuits of 35-year-old Paul (Patton Oswalt) a parking garage attendant obsessed with the New York Giants. A study of both the sports fan stereotype and of one individual man, the film is a gripping exhibit of Siegel’s talents and Oswalt’s range.

Pete also might want a copy of his shirt...



Michael Rapaport will be playing the character Philadelphia Phil. 

My local arty theater has the opening date of September 11th.

It would be nice to see the US get the ball to the other end a bit more.  Brazil has been at our end of the field a bit too much this half for my liking.  We looked more aggressive in the 1st half on offense and lately we've been playing off our heels. 

Fans of every sport hate the Prevent Defense.

It only prevents winning.

I'll probably end up spring for a full version of Pro once I get to a point where I want to purchase it.  The XP compatibility mode and not having to re-install+upgrade will be a big factor.
