I live in your hometown of Jacksonville, Florida, and I must say I am disappointed that you will not be a Jaguar. You chose New York over Jacksonville? I don’t get it. How disappointing. Sure, NYC has subways and stuff, but we have the Skyway Express. And what’ve the Jets got that the Jags don’t? Well, except coaches who want you to play for them. Talk about disappointing, how could the Jags mess up twice? First by not drafting you in 2010 when you left GatorNation and oops they did it again.
A lot of Jags fans are disappointed, really disappointed. We’ve heard that the Moustached-One did his best to convince you to come home, Tim. But you disappointed him. You disappointed us, your fans. You disappointed Jesus. I’m sure you must know he’s a Jaguars fan. So, Tim, have a great time in New York and don’t be too disappointed when your Jets lose to our Jags.
God bless you and the gator you rode in on,

Opening in limited release in the U.S., the wonderful film called BOY. It’s a fabulously funny and touching film.
Here’s the story:
The year is 1984, and on the rural East Coast of New Zealand “Thriller” is changing kids’ lives. Inspired by the Oscar nominated “Two Cars, One Night,” “Boy” is the hilarious and heartfelt coming-of-age tale about heroes, magic and Michael Jackson.
“Boy” is a dreamer who loves Michael Jackson. He lives with his brother Rocky, a tribe of deserted cousins and his Nan. Boy’s other hero, his father, Alamein, is the subject of Boy’s fantasies, and he imagines him as a deep sea diver, war hero and a close relation of Michael Jackson (he can even dance like him). In reality he’s “in the can for robbery.” When Alamein returns home after 7 years away, Boy is forced to confront the man he thought he remembered, find his own potential and learn to get along without the hero he had been hoping for.
Go see this film as soon as it comes to your town.
