  1. Him and the other old guy Grandpa...something (his avatar was Albert Einstein sticking out his tongue), were always good for a laugh.
  2. I have heard a few Washington pundits state that as arrogant, narcissistic and delusional Trump is, he realizes how utterly powerful Mitch McConnell is, and how destructive it could be to get in McConnell's way. My unsubstantiated theory: McConnell warned Trump to his face not to fire Sessions.
  3. Eduardo Nunez heading to Boston.
  4. Rat from "Fast Times At Ridgemont High".
  5. My favorite part of that scene is when Dean Wormer tells Kroger that he has the highest GPA of the Delta pledges, with a D minus average, and the camera cuts to Belushi who arches his eyebrows in salute, in praise.
  6. No, not really. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2quc-iQ96R0
  7. If you have a burning curiosity about what it is like to fill out paperwork in Chicago, then the last ten minutes of "Blues Brothers" will make sense.
  8. Bluto's Speech: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7vtWB4owdE Jake Seeing The Light: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTe6egvLJLc Bluto Making His Way Through The Dining Hall: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZN4r8p6KbU Jake Singing Rawhide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RdR6MN2jKYs&t=132s
  9. I just watched the movie. He comes out of nowhere, literally. One moment Clint is walking through the woods, and then there is Uncle Leo with a gun. I half-expected him to say, "Hellllooooooo Josey".
  10. On the Cubs radio broadcast Pat Hughes mentioned that Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina had recently broken the Cardinal record for starts with the same battery: 248. Bob Gibson and Tim McCarver held the previous record. He asked where that ranked overall in recent times. It took awhile, but he got the answer. I guessed wrong. Anyone have a guess (answer below). Tom Glavine and Javier Lopez.
  11. It sucked that Lester lost it to a pitcher, but Wainwright has double digits career homeruns and almost seventy RBIs.
  12. No, I have stuck with it. It is not been easy to stay riveted, but I have kept up with every episode. I heard a theory that when Lynch first pitched the idea to Showtime he was expecting to be given a single-season eight episode order, and wrote the series based on that belief. However, Showtime gave him a two-season eighteen episode order, and he has had to stretch the story out because he simply does not have enough material. I don't know if that theory is correct, but it certainly feels as if it is true. There is an awful lot of filler in each episode, a lot of meandering. I wonder how many minutes have been spent just on close-ups of Kyle McLachlan with a stupefied look on his face.
  13. Arizona put twelve on the board today. I couldn't wait to see the boxscore and what kind of damage Goldschmidt did. 0-5 with four K's.
  14. The author of that piece, Charles Cooke, is a dead ringer for the 1978 version of Jackson Browne, right down to the curtains way he parts his hair.
  15. The Cubs rumor has been for both Verlander and Avila. If the Cubs are willing to absorb the full amount of Verlander's contract, the return will be a C level prospect.
