Keeping with the movies theme... I'm not going to lie. I did not have any inclination to see Up in the Air until I read Joe Posnanski's blog entry about it.
I live a metal free existence when traveling, and so when I beeped going through security the other week, I remember feeling defeated. The woman at security asked me all the questions she asks regular travelers … do you have any keys on you, anything metal in your pockets, can you remove your belt, like I was some kind of road tourist. It’s hard to explain, but I felt strangely humiliated. The whole thing took only a few seconds, and I went back through the X-Ray and I did not beep this time, and I wanted to shout: "It was YOUR mistake! See?" But there was no such admission. And I thought about it way too much the rest of the day.

1. Utility infielder -- Great for the baseball fan who has everything! Utility infielders aren't too expensive, take up very little space, hustle on every play, and usually don't care if you forget to play with them. Also, many are bilingual! (Chewing tobacco purchased separately.)
Some Hot Stove news:
The Warriors haven't had an All-Star in 12 years, the last being Latrell Sprewell in 1997. Could Monta Ellis be the next?
