I really am going to post Nashville pics at some point -- I guess I just have to let the calm of a vacation completely fade before I can get some photos up. Here's one, just for kicks -- the utterly bizarre/vaguely demonic-looking AT&T building in the center of downtown.
It's the tallest building not only in Nashville, but all Tennessee, as you'd know if you just looked at Wikipedia like I did. It's pretty intriguing, though I still don't know if I actually like it.

Other stuff: oh, hey, I read books, but both are books I've read a million times before:
#40 -- "Neither Here Nor There" by Bill Bryson
#41 -- "The Burglar Who Painted Like Mondrian" by Lawrence Block
Both are very funny and you should read them!

And oh look, it's hockey season, so it's time for Don Cherry to say something that puts my teeth on edge. I realize that most hockey fans are somewhere to the right of Newt Gingrich, but God, it remains a constant embarassment that this xenophobic weirdo remains the most prominent spokesman for the sport. The sad thing is, he does make some good points about the unfeasability of European expansion, but it's in such an obnoxious manner that I end up rooting for the Flames to move to Helsinki.
And that calls for a hockey update: HC Kometa Brno are in second place in the Czech "1. liga," just a point behind league leaders HC Vrchlabi (booo! hiss!). I still do not have a HC Kometa t-shirt.
Here's a video of Barys Astana (in blue) winning a game recently -- I think you can actually see TK on the second two Barys goals, starting at about 1:50. He's #22. However, since the guy I think may be Клоучек is doing things like jumping into the rush -- very unKloucekian behavior -- I may be wrong.
More stuff coming soon, a bit more regularly, for all six of you that are still reading.
