As the end of the week approaches, a pair of OWS contributors banter about some of the important (and not so important) news items of the week.

…the Eagles. So, um, they’re kind of bad, huh? All that aside, my favorite character in this whole thing is Desean Jackson (or, as the back page of the NY Post will soon label this clubhouse cancer, DISEASE Jackson). He’s kind of like Randy Moss and TO, except 150 pounds and not good. The huge contract who’s trying to get is going to be like $35K a year. To play devil’s advocate, though, if Vince Young was trying to talk to me, I’d be ignoring him, too Our co-contributor WaWaFan tweeted last night wondering how this Eagles team is this bad. I didn’t have the heart to kick him while he is down. I mean, the guy has an Eagles winter hat adorning the top of his Xmas tree for heavens sake.

…The Most Dangerous Game. Now for a murder case based on one of my recurring nightmares…This story further highlights that there is no such thing as a good boy/man relationship. If any of you ever have a teenaged son who starts hanging out with the old neighborhood recluse, pull the plug on that **** IMMEDIATELY. The guy’s less likely to be getting your son into time traveling and more likely to be getting him into neo-Nazism or battling Asian gang members. I just watched Zodiac earlier this week. It’s a solid movie. They actually mention the old The Most Dangerous Game movie in Zodiac, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have heard of it to this point. There are some good (ridiculous?) lines in that NY Times piece. Such as; “The perpetrators appeared to be looking for loners who would not be missed.” Well, now these crazy bastards will know how that feels, too. The worst part is that they will be behind bars when this gets made into a Sundance b-movie.

… Blackberry party plane! I had to bring this up because, sadly, you and I are both Blackberry users. I guess this is what happens when you do one too many “Battery Pulls”. By the way, were you aware that people who have never owned a Blackberry don’t even know what a Battery Pull is? I’m glad RIM’s stock is in the *******.
How did no one take cell phone video of the executives going ape **** on the plane? The new iPhone has an HD camera, I hear. This would have been a great viral video. And I think this might actually be the ultimate endorsement to get an iPhone. If I’m on a plane and some rich Canadians are getting rowdy, I want to have that recorded in HD. If all these Canadian Air Canada passengers hadn’t had RIM BlackBerries maybe we’d be discussing a video right now.
