As I continue to pick up the tattered pieces of my "Super Bowl champion Atlanta Falcons" dreams, I turn to face a shiny, happy light of positive brightness and wholesome joy.
Because who could stay down for long when remembering that next month, Sylvester Stallone begins filming The Expendables, which he wrote and will direct (as he did his recent classics, Rocky Balboa and Rambo)?
Who could stay sad when realizing that the film will reteam Stallone and Rocky IV co-star Dolph Lundgren?
Whose face could stay droopy when seeing the film also co-stars Forest Whitaker, Jet Li, and Jason Statham as a guy named "Lee Christmas?"
Who could let the tears continue to flow when knowing that, instead of Stallone transcribing the action-filled finale in the script, he simply wrote: "What ensues is a remarkably savage ebb and flow battle. To describe the action designed for this scene would take many pages, so trust me, it'll be like nothing seen before?"
Who could still pout when realizing The Greatest Movie Of All Time is just over a year away?
1/07 update: Oh good God. Apparently Mickey Rourke has joined the cast. I'm starting to resemble Cartman and his desire for the Wii. I want to climb into a snowy bank and freeze myself for a year, just so opening day gets here quicker.
