Worst Movie of 2010?

The new Brendan Fraser movie "Furry Vengeance" opens today and is the early favorite for worst movie of the year. I haven't seen it and don't plan on it. But the trailer is reason enough.

Fraser also starred alongside Harrison Ford in what looked like a made-for-tv movie earlier this year called "Extraordinary Measures." Didn't see that one either but it has to be terrible.

What the hell is he doing? I hope his career is over and think it might be.

Chris Brown Is An Idiot

Chris Breezy may be dumber than Sarah Palin.

If you want to improve your image, the last f-ing thing you wanna do is become a rapper.

He also released contradicting remarks about the Rihanna incident. First, he claimed he didn't remember what happened, then later admitted he did. Of course he remembered. He did one of the worst things you can do as a person to his gorgeous celebrity girlfriend.

Nobody will forget this image:

And Brown expects his former fans to ignore what he did and just listen to his music. Not happening in today's society. Some things are forgivable. Not this.

Plus, he's not a changed person. In late April he cussed out a radio personality in Virginia after complaining about the station not playing his music.

“All I'm saying is that you don't play m y s**t. What number is it (my song) at? It don't matter. Why am I even doing this interview?! I ain't doing this s**t!”

Oh and what is he infamous for? Hitting someone in the face repeatedly? So why would he sing the National Anthem for the Floyd "Money" Mayweather-Shane Mosley fight just a few weeks ago? Because he is an idiot.

Chris Brown, your days of having a string of top-10 hits are over.

There is a right time to say goodbye. And that time was Grammy Night, 2009.

Why Guys Hate Chick Flicks

Because they are stupid.

I feel the need to address this issue after viewing the endless marketing campaign for J.Lo's latest rom-com "The Back-Up Plan."

The quintessential chick flick: "The Notebook" and yes, I have seen it.

Why it's stupid: the Ryan Gosling's Noah Calhoun and Rachel McAdams' Allie Hamilton are so different from each other and constantly argue. It would not have worked out in real life. I find the concept of "The One" in movies incredibly annoying. A soulmate doesn't exist in this world. There are hundreds, if not thousands, if not millions of people that could fit the description of what one sees as a potential life-long partner. Noah and Allie have great sex. Did they have any other chemistry? I didn't see any.

But having great sex doesn't necessarily mean that person is The One. It just means that person is The it to you from behind.

Plus, look at how predictable that movie was. Even semi-intelligent people figured it out five minutes in.

Did you really not figure out that he was reading the story of their love? Really? Then I know some mentally challenged kids that are laughing at you for being so dumb.

The argument for most girls--I love the happy ending. Or I love hott boys. Or it just makes me feel good. I have no problem with this. I'm just telling you why guys hate them (*Most of them--I have a soft spot for "A Walk To Remember).

Then most girls will say: But guys love stupid movies. True, but we also don't go see "Harold and Kumar" for an accurate description of the way the world works. We know they're dumb. And that's why they are funny. We leave it at that.

So please do yourself a favor and don't see "The Back-Up Plan." It can't be good. It looks like the poor man's version of "Knocked Up." And it probably doesn't even deserve that praise. Even my mom thinks it's going to suck. And that should say something.

NFL Draft Analysis--First Round

The Denver Broncos are stupid for picking Tim Tebow.

And The Tennessee Titans are awesome for picking a DE with my last name.

That's all for now.

Is Big Ben's Time Up In Pittsburgh?

Not unless they want to set their franchise back several years.

Ben Roethlisberger is one of the League's toughest players and has two Super Bowl rings in the past five seasons. He's a winner. And now the Steelers are willing to get rid of him for a top 10 pick. Why? Do they honestly think Jimmy Clausen can fill his shoes? If so, they must have enjoyed 4/20 a lot more than the rest of us.

Plus, the Steelers organization is overlooking the fact that he was not convicted of anything. A Georgia district attorney said there wasn't even enough evidence to win a case. So they would have to rely on accusations made by a drunk sorority girl, which carries about as much credibility as a Mormon on Fox News.

Did he nail her? Absolutely. He gave it to her long and good.

Is sex in a public bathroom disgusting? Yes. But that doesn't warrant a six-game suspension. One or two games at most.

Also, the only Pittsburgh fans calling for him to be traded like problem-child wide receiver Santonio Holmes are the ones that care more about integrity than winning. But true fans won't hold this against him.

Because they know the Steelers can't win without him.

Final Four Predictions

And then there were four, but few thought it would be this four. Two hundred brackets out of almost 4.8 million on correctly predicted Duke, West Virginia, Michigan State and Butler would make it to Indianapolis. And I was a bit surprised to see that many get it right.

Michigan State vs. Butler

Butler is the only mid-major left, but the Bulldogs are not a mid-major program. They have 10 NCAA tournament wins since 2001, including two Sweet Sixteen appearances in addition to this year's Final Four. If Shelvin Mack and Gordon Hayward get hot from outside, I don't think Michigan State can keep up. They key player for Butler is Matt Howard. The Bulldogs' undersized center will have to compete against the nation's best rebounding team. The Spartans are playing without star point guard Kalin Lucas but that hasn't affected them the last two games. And how do you pick against Tom Izzo, who has led his teams to six Final Fours in the last 12 years? I have a simple answer for that: I don't.

Michigan State 68, Butler 62

West Virginia vs. Duke

West Virginia proved to be the best of the No. 2 seeds and continued the momentum created by winning the Big East tournament championship. Their 1-3-1 zone befuddled the top-ranked team left in Kentucky, and they're going to rely on that happening again. Da'Sean Butler, Devin Ebanks and Kevin Jones are the stars that led the Mountaineers throughout the season, but point guard Joe Mazzulla stepping in for Darryl "Truck" Bryant carried them to the Final Four. His career-high 17 points against Kentucky helped him earn the East Regional's Most Outstanding Player. Duke is led by the three S's in Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler and Jon Scheyer. Scheyer is the key. Kentucky lost to WVU because they were 4 for 32 from three-point range. I expect Scheyer to hit at least four, and the Blue Devils will win the game at the free-throw line late in the game.

Duke 72, West Virginia 68

Championship Game

Duke's size and talent is superior to Michigan State's. And even though Izzo gets his team to overachieve, he only has one title. I'm going with Coach K and his three titles. And I think Scheyer will get payback for not winning the ACC Player of the Year and be named the Final Four's MOP.
