I really didnt believe you yeaterday when you said that there would be steak knives invloved but now i believe you! i think my team is the holder of them currently.

I thought the death match was fun. I can't wait until Thursday. And was it just me, or was that movie bad? The language was horrendous I. I don't think it was funny because the one guy was just degrading the others.

I have that cadillac eldorado in my sight.. I don't care how weak the leads are I will be driving out with that Cadillac eldorado..lol
The movie is funny yet crud. The truth of life is it is tough and there is going to be things we come to like the death match and it will get you to sweating and if you want that prize enough you will work for it...
Jobs will be on the line..especially in a flat world.

The game was lot more interesting than I thought it would be. I not that good with MLA so I am glad we get to be in a group and go against each other and on a one on one basis.

This was a great clip. Baldwin really ripped into those guys. I'm just not sure if I would of let him[years ago] talk to me that way.
Again, I'll say group # 4, were coming for you....Grrrrrr.......
Snarl, snarl, bark, bark

Steak knives....could be used for some wicked schemes...my little bro would love to have them...BUT I think the car could sell for more on E-bay.

I have to say i love seeing Alac Baldwin in his prime. And i think that we should have had Deathmatches thorughout the quarter, maybe would have added a little more meat to the class. That was a steaknife ref.

Okay, so I've seen this clip twice now. Next time I think we should watch the whole movie. I want to know who gets fired, steak knives, and espcially the car. But, again it's a great motivation to try winning the MLA Death Match!

This movie was so cool that I didn't think that the game would be the same way. But it turns out that it was also pretty cool.
