10 Reasons why Die Hard is not a Christmas Movie

Posted: December 16, 2016 by jmklee in Uncategorized

imagesWe can argue a lot of things, frankly I like to debate over such topic with my friends and could argue both sides if I had to.  You know topics like…

Who is to blame why Indiana and Kentucky don’t play amore?

Did Rick Pitino know about the hookers?

Which is better football, Saturday or Sunday?

But there is one debate I will not entertain the other (wrong) point of view.  It is not about politics, religion, or college sports.  The issue is a simple one.

Die Hard is NOT a Christmas movie!

Just because a movie is set at Christmas does not make it a Christmas movie.  Let me give you 10 reasons Die Hard is not a Christmas movie.

  1. Less Than Zero
  2. Love Actually
  3. Gremlins
  4. Rocky IV
  5. Lethal Weapon
  6. Batman Returns
  7. Edward Scissorhands
  8. Eyes Wide Shut
  9. L. A. Confidential
  10. Trading Places

All these movies are set at Christmas and, like Die Hard, they are not Christmas movies.  If you think they are please stop reading now and go play in traffic.  Look, I get it.  You like Die Hard and hate Christmas.  Your Dad tried to come down the chimney, fell and broke is neck only to be found weeks later.  (Actual plot line in one of the above movies, true story)  Anyway, whatever the reason is that causes the empty space in your Christmas soul don’t try to rain on our holiday by bringing Hans Grubber into the mix.

Alan Thicke is why I hate Bob Seger…RIP

Posted: December 13, 2016 by jmklee in Uncategorized

News broke tonight of the passing of Alan Thicke.  Word is he had a heart attack while playing hockey with one of his sons.

Now if you have ever discussed music with me you probably know I have an unpopular opinion that Bob Seger sucks balls.  Many ask why and I always refer to one moment of 80’s pop culture.  The date was September 30, 1986, I was 12, and Growing Pains aired the episode, “Jason and the Cruisers”.  You know the one where Jason starts to feel old and Maggie decides to surprise him with a reunion of his former band The Wild Hots.  Don’t remember?  Well this will jog your memory.

I know, total crap right!  This shit actually passed as entertainment in the 80’s somehow and if it wasn’t for Bob Seger giving us the most over rated song in music history then we would not have had to watch Alan Thicke and Kirk Cameron pretend to play and sing.  Yes, I blame Bob Seger for bad 80’s TV.  Trust me, it makes sense in my head, I promise.

So there you have it, the man who was responsible for my hatred of Bob Seger has passed.  Make sure to pour some out for Jason Seaver tonight.

I love Christmas and with a house full of kids this time of your is a special time at the BDS compound.  Every night since Thanksgiving we usually ends the same way with us watching a Christmas movie or show.  We started talking about what our favorites are and figured we should put this up for a vote.  Help us figure out our collective favorites!

Let’s start with Christmas TV specials.  I have narrowed the list down to my 16 favorites in group of 8.  Vote for your favorite 4 in each group and the top 2 of each group will move onto the Final 4.

GROUP A

 

 

GROUP B

 

Basketball fans in Indiana get pumped when a team from the Hoosier state beats a team from Lexington, Kentucky.  Well last night that happened and in dramatic fashion.

Last night the Hanover Panthers beat Transylvania in dramatic fashion at the buzzer.  ONIONS! RUSH THE COURT!

 

Did anyone else catch the coolest coach this side of Brad Stevens show a little emotion before he collected himself and strolled to mid-court to shake hands?  We see you working Coach Miller.  The win moves the Panthers to 5-1 on the season and 2-0 in conference.

Thank you to Rob Connett and the folks at Hanover College Panthers YouTube feed for supplying the great video.

In honor of the University of Houston naming Lane Kiffin as their new head football coach I am bringing you this Daniel Tosh gem.

 

UPDATE:  So I guess Houston had a change of heart.  Well, at least it gave us a reason to watch the Tosh video.

The red-light district is where prostitution is widespread.  Originally the houses of prostitution put out red lamps to signal they were open. Today in towns like Amsterdam they use red florescent lights.

You might be asking yourself why I’m providing such information.  Why are you talking about red-light districts?  This is why.

This afternoon members of the Louisville media started tweeting out pictures of packages the UofL athletic sent them to promote the Lamar Jackson from Heisman campaign.

At first I thought this has to be a joke but then I ran across the letter that was sent along with the red light.

WHAT???

These dumb son of a bitches literally want people to put red lights in their windows and turn Louisville into even more of a red-light district than it already is.  Either UofL is the most unaware collection of idiots or they are officially trolling us.

In the midst of a prostitution scandal, one where the NCAA has yet to give out punishment, Tom Jurich and his cronies thought it would be a good idea to hand out the one item that symbolizes prostitution more than a Rick Pitino recruiting visit.  What is next?  Rick adds a fur hat and cane to his white suit get up this year?  I mean at this point why don’t they just start airing their basketball recruiting video again?
