Spezza! Lost! Giants!

So I was watching parts of Wings/Ducks Game 6 that I'd missed, and during the first intermission, there was a phone interview with Spezza. Now, I know Versus has had its share of problems with NHL coverage, but wow, being downright disrespectful to a player??? I mean, look at this:

I mean, all of us know that he's a very special boy, but there's really no need to embarrass the poor guy by pointing it out to the hundreds of people who are watching Versus!

Anyway, if anybody is interested in the interview, I can upload to YouTube. It's a phone interview, though, so no visuals of giggling Spezza. :(

So when they showed the first "flashback" of Jack last night, I immediately had the feeling that it was the future, just because of his really weird behaviour on the plane, being all drunk and unsettled, when in the pilot he'd been really calm about flying. And then all the substance abuse problem stuff. If he'd done that in the past, he wouldn't have been able to be all holier than thou with his dad. But then I was also all puzzled when it seemed that Jack's dad was still alive, but there wasn't anything definitive about that.

So I was expecting someone from the island to meet him at the end, although I was also partially surprised at the same time. I'm good at doing that whole forgetting stuff thing. When I read the review for Sixth Sense and they mentioned the twist at the end, I thought, what if the twist is that Bruce Willis' character is dead? Then I promptly forgot about it and was all surprised at the end of the movie. >.<

On the bright side, the finale didn't make me cry! I think the closest I came to it was when Jack said "because I love you" to Kate. He believed that Kate was with Sawyer and he just said that with kind of a... pure smile, like that was all there was to it. *sigh*

Lost seems to want to get everyone who's ever been on Las Vegas to guest star on the show. I hear that James Caan and Nikki Cox are out, so will we see them next? :P

I'm starting to kind of like the SF Giants. :( It's all Barry Zito's fault for being the gateway. And Matt Cain's. And Tim Lincecum's. :(

Lincecum looks like Vinny and that dude from The Black Donnellys. They all just look alike.

*points to icon and hopes it's the right now*

I didn't know you watched The Black Donnellys too! OMG, I love that actor so much. He's pretty much the only reason I watched the show, which is basically a drawn out Irish version of The Godfather that makes much less sense.

*ahem* You're right, they all have the same look, that long skinny face and long skinny nose thing. :P

Aw, poor Jason. What an inglorious way to be, uh, outed! (And hundreds of people, heehee.)

Does this mean he gets to go to the Special Olympics?

I bet THEY'D let him play! . . . Probably.

aww Jasons *pets* at least they didn't g for bad alliteration and call him Jamming Jason or something. I would have blushed FOR him if they had.

His ears look pretty special in that shot.

I knew it was the future because he had a full blown beard. Which was gross.

I'm starting to kind of like the SF Giants. *defriends for life*

People were pointing out that his fake beard was all black whereas on the island he had flecks of grey so it must have been past Jack!!!

They put in a bunch of little clues throughout the episode too, like the paper he tears the article from is dated April 5th 2007, The name of the mortuary "Hoffs/Drawlar" is an anagram fo "flash forward" and Jack was using a KRZR phone. I didn't notice any of that except for the phone, because I'm a geek.

See, with the Giants I just used to support Matt Cain. Then I would laugh at their geriatric outfield and disastrous bullpen. But now their defense has actually been making good plays and their bullpen is less prone to fucking up because their starting pitchers last pretty long into the game, so... I can't laugh at them anymore and it makes me uncomfortable.

Ahahaha! As I said, I had JUST seen that picture? And it makes me laugh. A lot. Poor Jason.

P.S. I kept meaning to tell you this story and I kept forgetting! Part of my job description is that I make campus ID cards; today, there was a very nice, very cute, very Czech guy who came by to get his ID card - his name was Petr Prucha. Sadly, not the Petr Prucha? But I thought it was kind of awesome anyway. Even more awesome, if the Petr Prucha was an graduate exhcnage student studing aerospace engineering, don't you think? ;)

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!! Did he say "sank you"? :P
