An eventful weekend

Well, I was doing a lot of work this weekend, but I did manage to do a couple of really fun things, which I will talk about in chronological order.

First, I got to go see Borat on Friday night. Of course, everyone was looking forward to this. I was wondering what sort of reception it would get. No worries. It was a bit more lowbrow than I expected (not sure why I expected it would be any more sophisticated) and while it had its moments of higher-level humor it had plenty of gross-out antics as well (more than plenty, really). I think everyone was fairly satisfied. Personally, I give it 3 of 4 stars - of course, the same as Berardinelli.

Second, I got to go to the TAMU-OU football game on Saturday in College Station. It was a close A&M loss (17-16). I did get some cool pictures which I will try to post when I get a chance (probably on Facebook first though). I guess Coach Franchione has been taking some heat all year for questionable calls and there were definitely some in this game. A&M's defense made good adjustments and was great after a tough first quarter, but the offense never came through, and Franchione made two decisions to kick field goals in the second half rather than going for it on fourth down. Had they made it once on fourth down and gone on to score a touchdown, they would have at least tied this game.
