I like the implication that fantasy football owners are "pathetic losers."  Because we all know that fantasy baseball owners, by contrast, are incredibly awesome.  Right?  Right?

Yes, indeed. Better than abstinence counseling.

re: Disney Buys Marvel

The entertainment world is reeling from the news that Walt Disney is to buy Marvel Entertainment for a whopping $4 billion. I'm not too worried about what will happen to anymore X Men movies since it's known that Disney buys Marvel isn't a rumor.  Disney Buys Marvel headlines are now known to be the truth, as they have put up $4 Billion to acquire Marvel Comics and other divisions like Marvel Entertainment, the TV and cinema wing, which has been wildly successful.  Disney films and Marvel films sell incredibly well – so the business move makes sense, and it's doubtful that Spiderman will battle a singing rabbit. In the last few years, entertainment revenues have slipped, especially in the face of recession.  So when hard money loans are put up by Disney as Disney buys Marvel – rest easy, Marvel's integrity won't suffer.
