Patrick Laverty A heavy fog rolled across Aliso Niguel High's football stadium in the fourth quarter of the Wolverines' homecoming game against Newport Harbor, so heavy that the opposite sideline was obscured. And there couldn't have been a more apt description for the Sailors' playoff hopes.

"Up to this point, we've been a team that has hit well with runners in scoring position," Coach Jim Kiefer said. "Today we weren't able to get the big hit early when we needed it."

It's easy to get burnt out on the endless parade of superheroes marching across the summer cinema screens. The loud pyrotechnics and large-scale destruction make it difficult to care about the central characters. Whether it's Superman, Iron Man, Spider-Man or G.I. Joe, they all fight and prevail through the same category of explosive special effects seen in movie after movie. But wait! Hugh Jackman's current incarnation of "The Wolverine" actually brings the genre to a more cerebral level.

Top three things I learned about Wolverine in “X-Men Origins: Wolverine:”  James Logan, a.k.a. Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) has been around since before the Civil War.  He has a mutant big brother Victor (Liev Shreiber) with even bigger anger-management issues.  His sideburns, like his high-tech claws, are indestructible. That’s the whole movie in a nutshell. Our insanely buff, part-animal, part-machine superhero races through time pummeling and pulverizing whatever stands in his way, all the while wearing the same expression (and undershirt)
