Legends of HS Football: More Kenny Hall stories.
  • His 520 yard game came on 11 carries. In the same game he also had a 21 yard INT, an 82 yard punt return, and a 64 yard kickoff return. And once again, most impressive of all, he sat out the second half and half of the second quarter!
  • In another game, playing QB, he touched the ball nine times, and the team scored on every play!
  • With an incredible fusion of speed and power, Hall was also a state champion in both the hundred yard dash and the shot put, a rare combination. (And that was in Texas, a mighty big state obsessed with sports year-round. He once ran the hundred in 9.4 and the 40 in 4.3. Pretty good for a shot putter!)

More Things You Didn't Know About Kim Jong Il. A long and hilarious thread at Fark. Some of my favorites:

  • Every year at Thanksgiving, he pardons a dog
  • Dogs can't smell him.
  • Was once in consideration for the part of "Long Duk Dong" in John Hughes's seminal classic "Sixteen Candles".
  • He drives an ice cream truck covered in human skulls.
  • Once scissor-kicked Angela Lansbury.
  • Taught Fritz Von Erich how to properly administer The Iron Claw.
  • He wrote 7 operas devoted to Richard Crenna
  • Came third in the Eurovision Song Contest competing for Portugal in 1959
  • He really can throw a football over them mountains

Weekend Box Office Results for October 20–22, 2006
  • The weekend's big loser: Clint Eastwood, whose ambitious, honorable, big-budget war movie took in a mere $10 million on opening weekend, far below already modest expectations.
  • The big winner: Martin Scorsese, who finally seems to have a genuine hit. The Departed dropped only 28% from last week, and almost won the weekend - in its third week! Given the results and the 94% positive reviews, the studio has to be regretting releasing this in the weakest period of the year instead of waiting until Thanksgiving.
  • Honorable meention: Tim Burton, whose re-released Christmas movie in 3-D took in an impressive $20,000 per screen to finish 12th, despite being on fewer than 200 screens. Burton's movie took in more than Employee of the Month, although the latter was on two THOUSAND screens.

Kinky Friedman a 'Lone Ranger' on the campaign trail
  • I believe that if Hunter Thompson could have imagined Kinky having a chance, the good doctor would have postponed his suicide to cover the campaign.

Best high school athletes ever
  • You probably never heard of Kenny Hall, the Sugarland Express, because he didn't get along with Bear Bryant at A&M, and sort of fell from the spotlight, but nobody compared to Kenny in high school. Not Earl Campbell. Not Emmitt Smith. Nobody. His records sound like some of my dad's fish tales. Here's my favorite. In one game he played only the first 15 minutes, scoring seven TDs and rushing for 520 yards. He could conceivably have rushed for 1500 yards in that one game, and pretty much had 1000 in the bag! His team was the state champion that year as well.

Rolen and Pujols hammer Verlander, Cards rook tosses 4-hitter (with a little help from Looper)
  • I mean no disrespect for the Cards. They are better than their 83 wins indicate, and Pujols is now the greatest hitter on the planet. But I still hate the idea of a .500 team winning the Series.

Daily Box Office for Friday, October 20, 2006
  • It's a big OUCH! for Clint Eastwood's big-budget Iwo Jima movie. It cost $55 million to make, and was expected to do about the same at the Box Office. It opened in third place with less than $4 million on Friday. It looks to be headed for about a $30 million gross. Disappointing, to say the least, for an ambitious movie.
  • Scorsese's The Departed continued to post solid numbers in its third week and even battled The Prestige for 1st place!

Reviewing the The Bugatti Veyron 16.4
  • You wonder what's so unusual about a freakin' car review? Well, I'll tell you. How bad a review could you write if Bugatti let you test drive their $1.3 million car between LA and SF?
