I Guess 2009 Isn't Their Year...

I was in the east side Borders earlier this week, perusing their leftover calendars. They were marked down to $4, and sometimes I can find a nice art calendar with frame-worthy prints. No such luck. However, I was amused to see some of the stuff that was left on the shelves.

Judging from the thickness of the leftover stacks, I concluded that the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers football teams are both less popular this year than either the Chicago Bears or the Milwaukee Bucks. Labrador retrievers are currently more beloved than cocker spaniels.

But the oddest calendar I saw, the only one that gave me a "WTF?" moment, was this "Link Larkin -- Heartthrob of Baltimore" calendar. Who thought it was a good idea to market a calendar of a character from a movie that came out two years ago? Even more surprising was the fact that there was only one left. I'm guessing a lot of teenage girls received them as Christmas gifts from clueless parents.

Apparently, I'm too old and so are my kids. I couldn't tell you who this guy is if my life depended.
