Friday night random cable movies

Hey, coven of Nerdlings, peeps of the cyberspace: I am at the airport at 4:45 in the AM still with a slight smile on my face. Last night mom and I go to the Riverton H.S. football game. They are losing 49 to 0 at halftime, but Annie looks good playing her horn. We go home and I watch the last 8 minutes of BYU losing to Utah State. Utah State!! So it 9:30 or so and I check out the cable movies...guess what? Some of my best are all on. Silence of the Lambs, The Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption, A Few Good Men. The Man From Snowy River, so I spend an hour or so switching back and forth and get to see....Warden Norton go down and Tim get all his money, Clarice interacting with Dr. Lecter, Tom Hanks growing old and playing with the old mouse, Mr. Jingles, and the scene of the boy chasing the wild horses down the mountain and driving them into the corral and of course, Cornel Jessup giving his "You can't handle the truth" speech and his subsequent arrest. Nice! And on top of all that, I am planing to order a big screen HDTV today. Yea! Go, George.......

Sounds like an awesome end to a disappointing night. Tooele had their hats handed to them in football last night, too, but Hope danced great and there were really amazing fireworks at halftime (Homecoming game). The announcer was giving BYU/USU scores during the game, with the crowd mostly applauding for the rout. Crazy that the Cougs are struggling so badly, but I like Gary Anderson and am happy for the Aggies getting a boost from this.

Glad you had fun flicks to comfort you and had good luck catching favorite scenes.

What do you mean? Emily. I write better at 4:45 in the am than when I am awake?

OK so Riverton ended up scoring 22 points in the 2nd half with their 2nd string team in and stopped them (Buffalo) from scoring at all so the final score was a little more respectable. Not that any of you care :). It was our Homecoming, too, Dan.
I can just see you Dad, watching all those favorite movies at once. That's awesome! WV is "pappipp". Sounds like a new name for you, pops!
