Re: Random Thoughts Again

I believe all the musicians in that movie were real musicians who were tops in their field. Several of them were with the SNL house band when the movie was made and they all had pretty serious credentials as I recall. Some, like Alan Rubin (Mr. Fabulous) could actually deliver a line ("No, sir...

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

It could be that his agent privately contacted the Phillies to negotiate an "incentive" for Jones to approve the trade and wasn't successful. I think these guys generally would prefer to win than to lose, but that's not a Life&Death matter with them as it can be with fans. Otherwise, p...

and cheesesteaks.

Just don't let them drizzle that melted Cheese Whiz on it. That stuff is made from recycled window caulk and yellow dye #4.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

When the season series is over, the Mets will have out-scored the Orioles 2-to-1 and lost 3 of 4. So there's that.

Re: 2018 Baseball Season

You can't talk about my 2nd favorite team that way.

All the fans are true to the orange and blue,
So hurry up and come on down.
Cuz we've got ourselves a ball club,
The Mets of New York town!

In a town like mine, being a police officer is relatively easy. The places where you need people who can keep their cool under pressu...

Re: Random Thoughts Again

I'd be equally curious to see a study on the quality of people you get as cops vs. salary. How would you measure the "quality" of people? The police in my town (Snobville) are very well compensated and incidents of police brutality are virtually non-existent. But that doesn't mean the lac...
