Big Red Machine Helps Ellen, Clooney Hook Up

Since most of our readers are male, I am going to assume that you have never watched an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show.

I’ve seen “Varsity Blues” well over a hundred times, and I was the 7th person to officially say that “The Replacements” sucked. I believe my resume speaks for itself.

Pre-screening for “Leatherheads” took place earlier this week, and reviews for the film hover in positivity.
