Crazy things happen at the start of the season

Being a Niners fan is more frustrating now than when the team was really crappy. The team plays terribly, but there are a few great players (Vernon Davis, Patrick Willis, Michael Crabtree*) who do something amazing like... once or twice a game total between them and make me get all excited and stuff. (And then promptly gets negated by a stupid penalty or stepping out of bounds or something excruciating like that).

As frustrating as the team is, though, they are somehow 2-1 ahahahaha. They managed to not suck long enough to win the game. ♥ Vernon Davis. I also love that Alex Smith was wearing an SF Giants cap, hehe.

I watched the Person of Interest pilot and really liked it. The show was created by Jonathan Nolan (brother of Christopher Nolan--I think Jonathan came up with the story for Memento) with some Abrams involvement and stars Ben Linus from Lost! I was weirded out at various times though because the other guy in the show has these moments when his eyes look really intense and reminds me of Christian Bale (who's directed by Christopher Nolan in the Batman movies).

Since the iPhone5 is coming out in early/mid-October (I think?) and Alex is giving me his old iPhone4, I'm going to compromise and wait to upgrade to that (instead of the 3GS that Chip just gave me), but put my apps and TV shows on the 3GS, essentially using it as an iPod Touch.

* Michael Crabtree has the potential to be a great player. He certainly makes some great plays now, but he doesn't really do it on a consistent enough basis.

I was excited when I heard the concept of POI and the news that it would be a Caviezel vehicle. I've been a little sweet on him since Count of Monte Cristo/Frequency. Caught a bit of the pilot, but our digital antenna signal was weak. I haven't gotten around to downloading yet, because I hate to get too invested just to have the rug pulled out from under me with a series cancellation.

I know it's still early, but I think this has a good chance of being renewed. It fits in with the CBS procedural format as each case stands alone and it's probably going to have some kind of overarching story, but I don't think it will take over the show.
