    100% true, and more relevant than what I said. They're a lot like thoroughbreds, really.

    I was echoing Smurf's post about Trump. That said, I found out 90 seconds ago that Sutherland was in Animal House. Thanks!

    that trick he does where he tosses the chalk over his head and lands it on the little panel that’s there for the chalk and the eraser: I do that too, and I owe it to him.

    it’s the main reason I ask to teach in my school’s oldest building, and why I never use PowerPoint.

    And he's great-- if ever there was a role that could have been mailed in at no cost to the final product, that was it, but he delivered like a royal messenger. Those of us who went to those schools six years later found those guys still teaching there, and he just nailed their younger selves. I could get out my yearbooks and point out three or four guys in their thirties who were built on that same framework of attitudes and competences...

    My first bat was a Rocky Colavito but loved my Adirondack Vada Pinson in my teenage years.

    I still have a Louisville Slugger my older brother bought me when I was seven or eight: Alas, while he is rightfully in the Hall of Fame, "Eddie Matthews" is not one of the all time greats in terms of names. And my first broken bat that I got at an summer collegiate league game (that's how we got bats in the old days: someone playing for the high school, the American Legion, or the summer collegiate league team would break a bat and kids would swarm the bench trying to get it) was, alas, Norm Cash.

    Now that I think about it... my glove of choice was Frank Robinson. All those guys are great players, but man... they did not have epic names.

    I do. I saw it.

    Kind of a weird question, because who here would possibly be in a place where they could see it??? You pretty much would have to have been in Chapel Hill in the late 1980s, or maybe Chicago.

    But yeah, he loved to play.

    The Giants had lots of great players in the 60s, but for some reason I had a Billy O’Dell glove.

    MJ was a multimillionaire in those years. He could have gone (as in flown in a charter jet) to Rucker or any of those other iconic places in the Northeast to play. Why was he still breaking college boy ankles in North Cackalacky?

    Here’s a terrific article about something I’ve never heard of (unless it was discussed in Nixonland in which case I forgot it.)

    It’s an article about an anti war project from the early 70s that Donald Sutherland was part of.

    https://foreignpolicy.com/2024/07/04/donald-sutherland-vietnam-war-gi-jane-fonda-fta/

    Because UNC is in North Carolina, therefore it is where then-current UNC players lived, and it was also the logical place for Sam Perkins and James Worthy and Michael Jordan to meet up.

    You ask a lot of questions that have really obvious answers. Do you ever try to figure things out in your own? I’ll bet you could have figured this one out. Anyone who goes to the YA boards…Auria is like our own LouisianaViking. :ROFLMAO:;)

    Anyway, I don’t mind the questions too much. I’m always willing to teach you. I mean, that’s the purpose of this site, right, to share info and discuss soccer.

    And here’s his rational wiki page. The entry on the Murray Building bombing will enrage you, and is also a strong data point for the argument that Trump is more effect than cause.
