You did everything you possibly could to drive the basketball program into the ground and despite the tremendous efforts of AK and the players it worked.

And now for the Oscars…

For the most part I can’t complain about who won. I suppose I would have preferred that Terrence Howard had won best actor, but Hoffman was good too. None of the pictures nominated really seemed “Best Picture” worthy to me but I suppose Crash came the closest. I would have ranked them Crash > Good Night, and Good Luck > Capote > Munich > Brokeback.
