With Mother’s Day just around the corner, wouldn’t you like to show your appreciation in a way that’s more meaningful than buying your mom a box of chocolates or a bunch of flowers?

Lovers of love stories who, like true fans of baseball, enjoy the pastime whether minor or major league, will at least appreciate the attempt made by Mark Waters’s “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.” Appropriating Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” and replacing Scrooge’s miser with Matthew McConaughey’s womanizer, it has its albeit predictable moments.

WOODBRIDGE-Here are memories from readers:

Woodbridge Golden Bears
I received the following in an e-mail from Mark Curran: “Hi Diane, I am the son of Joe Curran # 76 in the photo of your Feb. 27, 2009 Atom Tabloid-Citizen & Gazette article about Woodbridge, New Jersey sports memories. The photo was taken during the 1952 season. My father Joe was in his senior year at Rider College playing quarterback. The Rider College football team went undefeated that year.

“My Dad would play his collegiate games on Friday night or Saturday mornings and if he was not too banged up after his Rider College game, he would drive up to Woodbridge and play for the Golden Bears on Sunday afternoons. He was chosen as the 1952 Most Valuable Player for the Golden Bears.  He is now 82 years old.”
