What people are talking about this week: The Avengers, Cinco de Mayo, and Junior Seau
View Comments(0)

Another week is in the books and a lot of news was made this week. Here is just some of the things people couldn't stop talking about:

The Avengers

Ever since the world got its first glimpse of the new movie, "The Avengers," when its trailer premiered last October, the anticipation for it has been growing out of control. It opened today, May 4, so fans will finally get their chance to see if the film meets their expectations. Early reports predict that the movie will bring in a half billion dollars in box office sales worldwide by the end on the weekend. Yikes.

The movie stars Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson and Samuel L. Jackson (of course...he's in everything!). "The Avengers" has received a rating of 93% on RottenTomatoes.com so far and should be a big hit. After seeing the trailer (on the left), there is no chance that I don't see the movie this weekend.

Cinco de Mayo

This weekend also marks one of the great non-holiday holidays, Cinco de Mayo! Wikipedia describes the day as a date of "celebration of Mexican heritage and pride," but most people just use the day to have a FIESTA!

Junior Seau

The most talked about subject this week though was the unfortunate and untimely death of NFL legend Junior Seau. There is a lot of speculation and unanswered questions surrounding his passing, but one thing nobody can question is his impact on the game of football. He played the game with passion and heart, and if you ask many linebackers in the NFL today, they would say he was their role model growing up. He played for parts of 20 seasons in the NFL, suiting up for the San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots. He played his college ball at USC, and they did a great tribute video with him singing and playing the ukulele. It's worth checking out.
