What did you guys think of Sharknado? Anyone watch it? It seems like a peculiar premise to start a daily morning column on the largest and free unofficial site for the coverage of Ohio State athletics, but the Skull Session is a news-of-the-day feature. It's supposed to foster conversation. I'm not sure much of a premise for this feature's abstract is needed.
Then again, I'm not sure much of a premise was needed for a Syfy movie based on a torrential rainstorm in Los Angeles, that results in several tornadoes, tornadoes that pass over the Pacific Ocean, that pick up sharks and only sharks to spread through the city, which can jump in mid-air and eat a girl from a helicopter (who happens to be throwing bombs into the tornadoes), for which the climax is Steve Sanders from Beverly Hills 90210 jumping into the shark with a chainsaw (and what are the odds it's the same damn shark?), and rescuing the girl, who is fine despite being ate by a shark while falling out a helicopter. And also they kiss at the end. And Tara Reid is in it too.
Who says Hollywood doesn't have good ideas anymore?
RAY SMALL REALLY DID THAT 360, DIDN'T HE? When people turn their lives around and commit themselves to walking the figurative straight and narrow after traveling a wayward path through life, they tend to express it as doing a "360" in their lives. This is, of course, the incorrect metaphor. There are 360 degrees in a circle, so a 360 turn would start from x and end in x. "180" is the correct number of degrees for the metaphor, but "360" just sounds cooler or more impressive despite the connotation. Maybe that's the fault of the X Games, or something.
Two months ago, Ray Small announced that his life had done a complete "360". Two months later, his word choice seemed prophetic. He was arrested for a laundry list of drug trafficking charges and could face a rather lengthy stay in jail, if convicted of all charges.
