Not a penalty...and I say that as a goalie. If he decides to come that far out it’s different than being in the crease. Clifford was only playing the puck. Contact was incidental not intentional.

I’m so conflicted! I want the Leafs to win but how can you not cheer for Ayers!

My daughter accidentally unplugged the router so we have no wifi at home; you would think the end of the world had arrived!

Thanks for this. It’s been some years since I last watched the movie so it might be worth taking another look.

Totally agree. It’s been a long time since I read it, but the book is outstanding. Long, but worth the time.

The movie starts out really well and the assault on the hill is outstanding. It loses steam in the middle but that whole patrol up the river just doesn’t work for me. It’s like it’s trying to be Apocalypse Now or something.

Thin Red Line for me. I can’t watch that movie. I think maybe there is a good movie in there with A LOT of judicious cutting...it’s too long by at least half. Terrance Malik created a self-indulgent mess that in words of one reviewer is “too paralyzingly high-minded.”
