    I like to think that we inspire some good debates on this blog. Sometimes I think I know what I'm talking about, like how well Will Ferrell's "Semi Pro" is going to do, and you show in the poll that plenty of you thought the movie would pull in less than $100 million gross.

    The Electronic Arts headquarters in Redwood City, California.

    So we've just learned that Electronic Arts made a $2 billion bid to take over Take-Two last Tuesday. EA went public with the news Sunday after Take Two's board denied the deal. The notion of such a deal probably makes sports gamers cringe, much in the same way that trading card buffs feared Upper Deck's attempts at buying Topps last year
