2013 oscars preview ft. sam

Well hello friends, I haven’t wrote anything in a while. I did warn you I was lazy. Anyways, the Oscars are coming up this Sunday and most of you have probably not watched even half of the movies. Now you can’t go into Oscar night without any working knowledge of the movies nominated, so that’s why I’m here to help. And by help I mean make things worse. Whereas normal people would get knowledge from astute movie critics who have seen every movie, you are here to get knowledge from someone who hasn’t even seen all of the trailers.

Today is the Super Bowl though, a great and important day for any sports fan. Even if you don’t like football, today you like football. I personally am indifferent. I’ll watch most playoff games, or when Tom Brady does things, but otherwise I don’t really care. This gets a little saddening when I’m with my friends during football season and the only topic is fantasy football so I just sit there quietly and awkwardly until they throw me a bone and ask me something about hockey.
