It’s pouring here in SoCal – I mean seriously raining – and it’s supposed to be this way for days and days.
But it’s not snow, so I won’t complain – much. Despite the flooding and the threat of mudslides, I ventured out to see “Black Swan.” The theater was packed so I guess people either have finished their Christmas shopping or really, really wanted to see the movie. Did I like it? Not as much as I’d hoped. Natalie Portman threw herself into the role of the ballerina on the verge of a breakdown and Mila Kunis, Barbara Hershey and Winona Ryder were all good too. I was just expecting more of a psychological thriller than an over-the-top horror movie. Has anyone else seen it? (Jeff, I know you gave it a thumbs up.) Here’s the trailer.
On the baseball front, I suppose I could go into the Yankees’ signing of reliever Pedro Feliciano but I don’t have a single thing to say about it. I want a starter. Cashman preached patience. It’s not my strong suit.
