We've Come So Far (To Be Here Today)

We actually got some snow overnight. Not much more than an inch, just enough to make things messy out there. I'm supposed to run a 15k road race tomorrow, so hopefully the roads won't be too slippery. It's been consistently cold all week and is supposed to get even colder as we move into next week.

Tomorrow's Super Bowl Sunday. My excitement for the game is severely diminished because the Patriots lost to the Colts two weeks ago, but I'll still watch. I hope the Bears win, but I have a feeling the Colts are too strong for them.

Pass the dutchie:

  • David Letterman celebrated his 25th year in late-night comedy Thursday night. While his show isn't as edgy as it was back on NBC in the '80s, it's still pretty funny. You can find a lot of classic old Dave clips on the YouTube, such as this visit to his new employer GE back in '86. Brilliant stuff.
  • The posters were unveiled this week for Knocked Up, the new movie from Judd Apatow, director of The 40-Year-Old Virgin and the mastermind of the classic TV shows Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. It stars Seth Rogen, who worked on all three previous projects, and Katherine Heigl of Grey's Anatomy fame, and it features some of the great suppporting cast of Apatow's old shows (Jason Segel, Martin Starr, Jay Baruchel). It's supposed to come out in June, and I, for one, am looking forward to it. Of course, I probably won't see it until it comes out on DVD, but what the hey. The last time I saw a movie in a theater was Christmas 2005.
  • The Van Halen reunion with David Lee Roth is official, although bassist Michael Anthony is out, replaced by Eddie VH's 15-year-old son Wolfgang. You probably also heard this week about the Police reunion, which is slated to begin with an appearance at the Grammys. Who's next? I'm pulling for Husker Du.
