Well, looking at the past few days, I spent money on two sub-par performances. One being the Pirates 12-6 loss on Thursday at Baltimore, and Adam Sandler's new film "That's My Boy."
The Pirates play over the last week is like an Adam Sandler flick. You pay to see it, but you don't have that high of expectations and you know it might be a flop. In the end, both were bad and made me laugh at times.
For Sandler's new movie, we held out little hope it was a throwback to the old Sandler, much like Pirates fans hope for the offense to return to its 1992 form. Both dissapoint and we leave both Camden Yards and the theatre frustrated.
I knew what I was getting into seeing "That's My Boy." It was a movie just to kill time in a Maryland outlet mall on a Friday afternoon. I also wanted to see Rex Ryan act and praise Tom Brady and Belichek.
But the Pirates, you expect better, no matter how pessimistic you may be. As long as Happy Madison Productions doesn't buy the Pirates off of Bob Nutting, they'll be fine.
