Brokeback Bowl

Thank God the Super Bowl is about to start.

I made the mistake of watching Brokeback Mountain last night, and I need something to, um, "reassure" me. I don't mean to suggest that I'm wavering in my heteroness, but that movie made me cry. Well, okay, maybe not full blown heaving sobs, but my eyes did well up just a bit. Especially when when Ennis comes across Jack's shirt and buries his face in it. That scene was good for several kleenexes.

Anyway, my point is simply that I found the film to be uncomfortably moving, and a great big dose of macho football is just what I need.

Then again, maybe watching a bunch of big beefy guys slap one another on the butt is the LAST thing I need....
