"Speaking of fun baseball, how about JMC's Rangers, who now have four walk-off wins this season. And they beat King Felix last night. Good times."

Sadly, I missed that game. Fox Sports Southwest carries the games locally but for what ever baloney reason, last night they decided to carry the game on their high-end channel 903 to-broke-to-afford-that-s#$*&^ HD station. So I missed it. ): I did catch all the others so I know we're on a good streak.

Peter Billingsley was techincally not a one and done child actor. He did two other "kid" films post Christmas Story. One was "The Dirt Bike Kid" which was pretty good for it's time. Had Annie Potts playing his mother and the creepy fat guy from "Not Necessarily The News" or NNTN for short playing this evil bank president trying to do land acquisition. The other one I recall was "Beverly Hills Brat" which went straight to video. He also is known, and you can find this on YouTube, a spot he use to do for Hershey's chocolate syrup (aka the one regarding the cans in the garage). It aired back when Saturday Supercade aired on CBS and Pac-Man on ABC. ^^

What I didn't know that he was turning 43. I thought he was my age.

At least he went on to greater things (he's actually a working producer now). As suppose to the kid who played Sharwtz(the frozen pole kid). Apparently 1) it's that big and 2) yeah, he uses the tongue for that now.

I know everyone else is talking about the cows, the chickens, and the hogs regarding Cozgate (Don't care and don't blame him) but I wanted to give Stephen Universe credit for the five questions regarding the Mocs preseason. In the meantime, ugly, UGLY game Monday in this series against Seattle. The good news was of course the bats were a little hotter last night. Prince Fielder keeps reminding me too much of a black Babe Ruth (shape-wise). But it was nice to see him finally hit his first single homer.

Thank you for the follow-up. Did the DMNs arrive before you left?

Not much for the Masters, or golf in general, minus Steven Fox's UTC for 15. My Rangers appear to be going 50/50 and hopefully I can take in my first game next week.

They're based out of Detroit, Michigan (I know because every news article from here,, WRCB, etc. says so).

...and several posters on Facebook already beat me to the Jake/Elwood punch. ^^()

Jay, double checked the 5 at 10 yesterday and for Tuesday and did not see anything on this. Since I don't get to listen to the radio show at work (for obvious reasons), what was Russ' response to my inquiries?

Also, good thing you're in Augusta just like I'm in Dallas. Apparently the Scenic City is about to get ugly. I'll say this much, I'll give mad props to anyone showing up April 26th cosplaying as Jake, Elwood, Captain America, and Indiana Jones (the Rushmore against out of town stupidity).

Jay, Heffie was playing auto clips of said milestone. However, I was still less then -1 at the time. Heck, I wouldn't even be a zygote until four months later from the event in reference.

Regarding the one and dones, I know you've covered this repeatedly but I still sent you some DMN love your way which should hit your mailbox tomorrow at the earliest.

Question(s) for Russ: With repeated reports that the linebacker corps is paper thin, what plans are being put into play to have this link strengthened by the time the season starts.

Follow-up: I also read the fact the offensive line is working at a much higher tempo then in seasons past which becoming more commonplace in the game. Will this new up tempo help the offense against the more stronger opponents this year or is there potential for an error-laden offense?

Ferris Bueller did make a brief appearance on the small screen. However, it couldn't hold a candle to my favorite parody of the FB storyline which was Parker Lewis Can't Lose. I was in high school during the show's original broadcast run and I also went to school with Jason Tucker (of Red Bank fame) who everyone saw as Kubiack from the show. Except unlike Kubiack he was very above average intelligence (made the Times-Free Press All Academic team three years if I recall).

Also, for those who tune into FX, Fargo is apparently going to be making the jump to the small screen to. No word as if a certain school will make a cameo appearance which UTC is destined go all Attack on Titan on (believe it).

Phillies almost had a sweep last night. Then my friend Jeff (not Styles) posted a Facebook Message of the come-from-behind at the bottom of the ninth.

Anyway, picked up a DMN and the front page has an expose looking into the ramafacations of the one and done rule. Interesting read. I'll have that mailed out to you sometime tomorrow or Saturday.

Chase - Already know about Don's retirement. I don't recall saying I was fan of any midday news program. Also, knew about Daryll but this is all inevitable. Right now Paul Beryes and Cindy Sexton are close to being some of the last on-air personalities who have been on the air since I was in single digits. ):

Jay - You're welcome. :P But it could work.

Regarding Tiger's absence: At this time in his career, he's already in the been-there, done that catagory regarding his legacy. He's forever linked with Palmer and Nicklaus for best of the best. Yeah, the ratings may take a small spike but CBS or whoever provides coverage is still going to be in the black.

Not that it matters, but is Steven Fox completely off the grid? I just really hate to imagine him as the Wang Chung of professional golf. ):

"It also is worth mentioning that our president Jason Taylor is always looking for ways to continue the growth of this event and all the TFP presentations."

What about comic/animation expo that rivals Dallas and San Diego Comic Con? I figured "he" can use all those "millions and millions" of dollars generated from the TFP payscreen to bring in the kind of celebraties that ConNooga and Anime Blast do not have the scratch for. Examples would be Stan Lee, Mike and Bryan (from Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legand of Korra fame), Jason David Frank (aka the Green and White Rangers), William Shatner (SALLLLLLLLL!!!!!), Chris Evans (Captain America), Rooster Teeth, and so on.

"We think that's a great idea!" said nobody at the Times Free Press staffing office.
