Leafs Lose in Time to Let Canadians See Chris Hadfield Land

I have new respect for the Toronto Maple Leafs tonight. Instead of trying to win Game 7 of their playoffs against the Boston Bruins in over time, they gave up the winning goal in time so the game could be off the air just time in for Canadians to see their beloved astronaut, Chris Hadfield, land in his return from the International Space Station.

The Leafs, clearly, put the interests of Canadians above theirs, knowing not all Canadians are Leaf fans… but that all Canadians, are Chris Hadfield fans. 🙂

Chris is a Leafs fan, though. He won’t be happy to hear that upon coming back to Earth. However, he should be consoled and touched by the fact the Leafs lost for him.

Thanks, Leafs! Enjoy your summer. You’ll get the karma back in your golf games.

290 X-men Movies Wallpapers (1024×768 pixels)

These wallpapers are from the X-men movies before X-men First Class, for which there aren’t a lot of graphics to work with yet. I’ll post those separately when there are more. Most of these wallpapers are also available in other sizes and purposes, if this isn’t the size you want your X-men wallpapers in or wish to get them for your other phones, monitors and for printing.

Of all the wallpaper sets I’ve created on this site, I have to say this has been my favourite. I love the X-men comics, and I thought the casting and costumes created for the movies’ characters were fabulous! The movies were spectacular, too, and I only wished they put one out each summer. Goodness knows they’ve got enough story lines to create that many for a long time… and it’s not like they don’t make a ton of money, either!

If you’re using Windows XP, you can learn how to create your own customized Windows XP screen saver with instructions via this link.

I also have instructions for how to use Windows 7′s nice rotating background feature to rotate many of these wallpapers on your computer if you didn’t know how to enable it.
