James Bond Spectre Movie

I've enjoyed Daniel Craig's turn as James Bond in the 007 movies.  This movie lives up to his past performances.  The movie is packed full of action which is what we've come to expect from a Daniel Craig 007.  None of the 007 movies will win an Oscar but they are entertaining.  That is never in doubt and that is normally why we go to movies.  I won't go into too much detail but will say they seem to tie up some plot points from previous movies.  Again a very enjoyable movie and if you like action movies I think you will like this one. 

Kansas City Royals World Series Champions

The Kansas City Royals defeated the New York Mets in the World Series four games to one.  I was wrong about this one.  The "little engine that could" that is the Royals offense was able to overcome what I thought would be pitching too good to beat.  KC scored 27 runs in the five games while their pitching staff had a 2.94 ERA easily bettering that of the Mets (4.21).  I thought Johnny Cueto's complete game win in game two was the key.  The 2-0 lead really made me think they wouldn't lose this series as I couldn't see the Mets winning all three in New York.  The comeback in game six to tie the game in the ninth before winning the series in the twelfth can't be overlooked as well.  The hitters for Kansas City just never stopped and had timely hits that the New York offense couldn't match.  I love that the Royals won.  They are a small market team whose fan base has had to suffer for a very long time.  Great win for the team and their fans.
