Flotsam and Jetsam

Miscellaneous thoughts and observations.

Heh heh - I'd play this or watch others play. It would be cool - you could pay the players in tickets to be redeemed for prizes... Childish - sure. Funny - you bet... It would be interesting if you could replace Steve Buschemi in every role he's ever played with Steve Burns the original guy from Blue's Clues... Today would have been the 72nd birthday of Richard Jordan who would have been first team in Bill Simons "That Guy" Hall of Fame". Jordan wasn't well known but you'd recognize him from his works in such films as Rooster Cogburn, Dune, The Secret to My Succe$$, and The Hunt for Red October. Jordan died of a brain tumor in 1993... Who knew? Great Britain was once the world champion at ice hockey. They won the Gold Medal at the 1936 Winter Olympics. I bet there's a story there.... Happy 58th birthday to one of the great baseball writers of this or any generation - Jason Stark...
