The Top 10 Early Retirements of all time. They probably have Koufax too low. I think he is the only one on the list who retired when he was not only the best player in his sport, but probably the single most dominant athlete in the world. He retired after two seasons with 26 and 27 wins, with 27 complete games each year. In his last four years, his WORST era was 2.04, and he was 98-27 in that period. If you're too lazy to do the math, that means his AVERAGE season was 25-7. In comparison, Sandy's contemporary Bob Gibson was a great pitcher - not just a good one, but one of the best ever - and Gibson was 78-45 in those years. Gibson's BEST won-lost record in his entire career was 23-7. That's how good Koufax was - far, far better than one of the best pitchers who ever lived - and he retired after a 27 win season for a poor hitting team (eighth in runs scored in a ten team league)! Not surprisingly, the Dodgers fell from first place in Koufax's last year to eighth in the first year without him. Now that was a shocking retirement!

Young speaker says Dick Cheney needs a timeout for his foul language.
  • Oh, this is cute and all, and Lord knows Darth Cheney deserves the abuse, but perhaps we should remember that it was Kerry who started the language slide with his lame explanation of his pro-war vote in the Senate.
  • (From Rolling Stone magazine): When asked in the interview about the success of rival candidate Howard Dean, whose anti-war message has resounded with supporters, The Massachusetts senator responded: ``When I voted for the war, I voted for what I thought was best for the country. Did I expect Howard Dean to go off to the left and say, `I'm against everything?' Sure. Did I expect George Bush to fuck it up as badly as he did? I don't think anybody did.''

Orlando Bloom is the new "young James Bond!" :
  • According to this site, it's not a secret agent film, but a movie based on Bond's college days.
  • If I remember right, Mr. Bloom, although still a young man, has been featured in as many $300 million movies as any other actor in history. There have only been 17 such non-animated movies, and he has been in four of them. I haven't researched it, but I can't name anyone who has been in five. (If you can, drop a line). I know that if the requirement drops a hair to $290 million, at least one guy has had a speaking part in five of them - Anthony Daniels, the guy who plays C3PO.

harrison ford was in all the star wars movies and the indiana jones movies.

 


Blogger Uncle Scoopy said...

None of the Indian Jones films made $300 million.

Four of the Star Wars movies made $300 million, but Harrison is only in two of those four.

That leaves him with only two such films, to Bloom's four.

(Many, many actors have been in three: the three LOTR films)

Hugh Grant one of the actors being discussed to replace Brosnan as Bond.

"Jim" when I went to the university. Here, look at this picture. Do you think I'm starting to resemble my mum?

Two sacramento firefighters were fired and three were suspended for attending a 'porn star' costume ball.
  • Personally, I don't care about whether our firemen have good family values. Call me crazy, but mostly I care about whether they can put out fires.
  • On the other hand, it doesn't really matter what kind of event they attended in this case, because these guys were on duty, they were drinking, and they used a fire truck to get to the event.

This week's movies: Thunderbirds -20% positive reviews. This one may get lost in the box office shuffle, with plenty of other movies opening this week. Some critic ridiculed it.

This week's movies: The Village (2004): Only three graded reviews so far, all positive. Director M. Night Shymalan has avoided letting critics see it in advance. Often that means the movie stinks, but in this case he simply wants to keep all the film's secrets as long as possible.

But it's not going to be easy, because home for Sam is The White House and her dad (Michael Keaton), is the President of the United States. Despite her fishbowl existence, Sam meets and falls for the Resident Advisor in her dorm. As romance blossoms, Sam discovers her new beau is actually an undercover secret service agent assigned to protect her." {cough} bullshit {cough} blowjob {cough}
