Is the “Good German” about Dirk Nowitzki?


Need a laugh? I sure do. It seems like everything I've posted this morning has been a downer.

So click on this link to John Blanchette's column. After you read his nominations, let me know which of the movies John mentioned you would award the Oscar. Mine was "Eight Below," though I think June is a little late. …

• The subject of one of the movies John nominated, "Off the Black," is also the subject of this Larry Stone baseball column in the Times. It may also make you laugh if you're a M's fan, thinking of the heartburn the Red Sox fans will get to enjoy this summer with Joel Pineiro as a closer. The P-I's Jim Moore also offers his opinion of Pineiro, the closer. …

• John McGrath has a interesting column on Ryan Appleby's response to Aaron Brooks over the weekend.
