Favre still has some life in 'im
  • He played a great game and nailed his 400th lifetime TD pass. He is only the second man in history to achieve that.

Weekend Box Office Results for September 22–24: The jackasses save the day.
  • Jackass Two took in a very solid $28 million. You can assume that there will be many more sequels to Jackass if these guys can manage to stay alive, because this one will gross $70-90 million and the production budget was only about $11-12 million. Compare that to Flyboys, which will gross about $20 million from a $60 million budget, or All The King's Men, which won't gross enough to buy a toaster.
  • The weekend was still down 7% versus last year, but that's only because last year was an exceptionally lively week. This week was actually up 30% from last weekend, which is undoubtedly quite gratifying for worried studio execs.

Zambrano does it again - another win, another homer
  • He's the first National Leaguer to hit homers in five of his own wins since Don Drysdale in 1965
  • With a 16-6 record for a bad team, and weighing in at 255 pounds, he's a bona fide candidate for two major pitching awards: the Cy Young award, which is given to the best pitcher, and the Jumbo Brown award, which is given to the largest.
  • Jumbo, a journeyman reliever who played most of his career in the 30s, was 6'4", 295, and was the heaviest man ever to play in the majors until the Orioles fielded a 322 pounder named Walter Young last year. However, it must be noted that Cecil Fielder is listed at 240. Cecil's son Prince is three inches shorter and admits to 265. I'm guessing that the old man was up to three bills before he finally retired.
