The most intimidating team in sports? Forget the '27 Yankees. Check out rugby's All Blacks, who begin every match with a Maori war dance. Here's an Adidas commercial based on their "Haka"

"Actress Brooke Shields has a pretty impressive pedigree -- hanging from her family tree are Catherine de Medici and Lucrezia Borgia, Charlemagne and El Cid, William the Conqueror and King Harold II, vanquished by William at the Battle of Hastings."
  • The point of the article is that you are also descended from many of those people. For example, some experts estimate that 80 percent of England's present population descends from Edward III.

Weekend Box Office Results for August 11-13, 2006

  • Step Up just about doubled its estimate. Although it actually won the day on Friday, it couldn't hold on to the pole position, and Ricky Bobby eventually picked up the checkered flag for a second straight week.
  • Tim Allen's Zoom, going for the "worst film of the year" trophy with a 0% rating at Rotten Tomatoes, completely tanked at the box office as well, with only $4.6 million.
  • Abetted by some great reviews and good word of mouth, Little Miss Sunshine continued to kick some major ass. It finished in the top twelve despite appearing in only 145 theaters, beating seven films which were in 750 or more, and even beating The Ant Bully, which was in 2000 theaters!
  • Buoyed by Step Up, the week did a bit better than expected, and beat last year by about 6%

It's August 13th - and You're On Notice.



Today's notes:

  • Albert Camus? It's bad enough he was poisoning the mind of that French race car driver who was beating Ricky Bobby, but now he's corrupting our President. Camus's books are filled with ideas, and those could be dangerous to anyone who has so little experience with them.
  • Bullet-proof jocks. OK, bullet-proof hats I could understand because Tarantino movies have taught criminals to shoot police in the head. But, c'mon, how can you consider yourself tough if you can't take a bullet in the nuts? Ty Cobb once came out to home plate before a 1908 home game and shot himself in both nuts, then proceeded to go 5-for-5 and steal four bases. And Eliot Ness used to take his testicles out of the sac and use them for skeet-shooting targets.
  • Hudson River Manatees. If you were bin Laden, how would you sneak a bomb into New York harbor? Everyone trusts the lovable, gentle, roly-poly manatee, nature's own version of John Candy.
