How Many QB's Can be Sacked... OFF the Field?

"Laws made by common consent must not be trampled on by individuals." -  George Washington

Well, well, well... it looks like April 25th is black Monday for quarterbacks in the National Football League.  We begin with example A - Tom Brady.  So it looks like the New England Patriots golden boy will, in fact, be slapped with a 4-game suspension afterall.  Yes, boys and girls, Deflategate rears its ugly head yet again.  Look.. somehow... someway those damn gameballs were fucked with.  Let's...

Oh, By The Way, I'm Leaving For Good ... Bye!

"A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers." -  Plato

BUT... Plato was never offered a pile of money from Good Morning America.  That's why Michael Strahan said "Adios!" to Live with Kelly and Michael.  So.. let's break this all down, shall we?   First off, you can't fault Strahan for taking the B.B.D.  (bigger, better deal).  You'd take it, too believe me.  But it's the how this all went down that remains the turd in the daytime punch bowl.  If you are leaving your co-worker...

Seriously Cutting Off Your Nose to Spite Your Face

"Life is Hard; It's harder when you're stupid." - John Wayne

Marion is oh so correct.  And, yes, that's the Duke's REAL first name.  I've been saving that quote for when the time was just right.  And it seems that moment has arrived.  Today, The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Kate Beckett - a.k.a. Stana Katic of Castle is being cut from the series.  Why?  Three guesses.  M-O-N-E-Y.  More specifically, THR says the brain-trust at ABC made the move for "financial reasons."  BUT... Castle has...

The Degradation of Pulling Digits

"I got it, (I got it), I got it.  For a good time, for a good time call."  - Tommy Tutone, "Jenny" lyrics

What happened?   See, in songs like this classic, you got the phone number right in the lyrics.  You know it:  8-6-7 5-3-0-9.  Boom, right there.  And, in an interesting twist, that number used to be assigned to incoming Freshman at Penn State until it was eventually pulled from the University's list.  True story.  But, little by little... since then, songs have shown the difficulty and...

The Force Really IS Strong With This One

"It's true.  All of it.  The Dark Side, the Jedi.  They're Real."  - Han Solo, The Force Awakens

As of this writing, I have watched the teaser trailer for "Rogue One: A Star War Story" half a dozen times.  I know, I've got issues.  BUT... I was raised on Star Wars.  I was two when the film now called "A New Hope" hit theatres.  I played with the action figures and pretended it was an Ewok in my parent's back yard.  So, I come by my Jedi geek status honestly.  And THAT is why I'm so jazzed...

See... It Really Is NOT Over Until It's Over

"Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it." -  Greg Anderson

I'll admit.. I'm not 100% sure who this Greg Anderson is... but he's right on with that quote.  Well, of course, we need to talk about the Uh-Maz-Ing finish to the NCCA Men's Basketball Championship game.  I mean, holy shit, what a shot!  A buzzer beating 3-pointer to not only win the game but the whole shebang!  Wow! Congrats to Villanova.  And, it just goes to show,...

One Should Only Joke About Being Serious

"There are casting directors with lots of imagination, but also some with not as much imagination." -  Max Von Sydow

So, you might be asking, why am I'm writing about casting on this April Fool's Day?  Simple.. and it's no joke.  Have you ever given any thought to how much of a joke certain actors being cast in certain roles really is?  For example, the good folks at ranthollywood.com were nice enough to put together a list of the 20 worst movie casting choices of all time.  The list...
