May day

Today my niece is 11 years old. I will probably see her tonight and be able to say 'Happy Birthday' in person, but just in case, I thought I'd mention her on today's post.

She's into gymnastics and cheerleading and the like.
She practices at home. See?

She wonders why, oh why, is her uncle an exorcist...

Speaking of exorcists, Paul Schrader's version of the prequel is playing now in NY and LA. The NY Times didn't like it. Said it was only for "the serious crowd".

Damn skippy.
Wouldn't have it any other way.

Saw Reggie play his last game yesterday. I'm not a Pacers fan, but I will miss his quirky, in-your-face style, his last minute heroics, his encouragement of New Yorkers booing and jeering at the Garden...

He was, after all, one of the last reminders of the great NBA rivalries of the late '80s and the '90s.

The Detroit - Miami showdown should be interesting...
