“Honey, all I’m saying is there is a reason why Sporty Spice is the only one of them without a fella.”
Ah, the early 2000s, when David Beckham was king, the Spice Girls weren’t quite a distant memory, and Mia Hamm and Brandi Chastain were kicking ass and taking names in front of a world audience.

So the fiancee and I sat down the other day & watched Woody Allen’s 2005 flick Match Point. It’s been years since I saw any of it. I almost forgot how well Allen can write and direct. I haven’t always been a fan of his work, but here is a prime example of pure quality work. The opening scene itself using tennis as an analogy for life and as a set-up reference for the end was quite a nice touch.
