    So in the new OT proposal, if the first possession is a TD and then the team that scores does an onside kick or chooses this 4th and 15 desperation play, does that end the game if they recover/convert?

    I’m willing to split the difference and say it’s Kyrie’s fault and gay Celtics Twitter’s fault.

    So in last night’s mean-nothing, practice pre-season baseball game in Arizona, Porcello got hit on the side of his noggin by a smoking line drive back through the box that landed in medium centerfield. It looked like Herb Score/Bryce Florie all over again, or worse. (I’m sure it’s on YouTube. I think I’ll pass on seeing it again.)

    But, miraculously, it grazed him: I think it parted his hair. He got up grinning, took a few warmups and stayed in the game.  :blink:

    Sounds like Mut has decided the Felger way is the key to success.

    “This time, it really does feel like the beginning of the end, doesn’t it?” or words to that effect.  :dry:

    Happy 103 to Sterling Hayden.

    He’d better learn to line dance and host a hoedown.

    Wow, Hayden was 55 when he was in G1…looked no younger than 65. Was supposed to be Quint in Jaws but couldn’t do it because of “tax problems”.

    Let’s not sleep on Doctor Strangelove, either:  “I don’t avoid women, Mandrake. But I do deny them my essence.”

    May be repeating myself here, but George C. Scott was furious at Kubrick for tricking him into his manic portrayal of General Buck Turgidson. Scott didn’t want to overact, so Kubrick asked him, as a rehearsal exercise, to take his character to extremes. As he secretly filmed them. And, of course, used those scenes in the film.  Scott, the story went, never spoke to Kubrick again.

    I think Lee Marvin was choice #1 for Quint.

    I cant believe John Astin is still alive. I thought he died a couple years ago.

    I guess this is my reverse Skip Stephenson.

    Last summer I caught this old movie called “The Star” featuring Bette Davis as a semi-washed-up actress who gets trashed/DUI one night and gets bailed out by a fan (SH) who also starts to fall in love with her. Will she reject Hollywood for a simpler but more genuine life, or is she too self-involved to realize what a gem she has in her new man?

    From IMDB: A washed-up movie queen finds romance, but still desires a comeback.

    Damn, young Sterling Hayden was HOT & SEXY!! Wow.  :blink: :ohmy:

    Spoiler, Bette makes the wise choice and chooses our man!  :wub: Good movie that also features teenager Natalie Wood as Bette’s daughter.  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0045186/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_59

    I feel almost blasphemous suggesting editing perfection, but I would have loved if Solozzo had responded to “do they have good Italian food at this restaurant?” with something along the lines of “no, but you should try the souvlaki or the moo goo gai pan, top notch” I guess the seriousness of the meeting precluded any jokes :lol:

    I thought the best part of that character was that he only drank rainwater and grain alcohol.

    I never took Kubrick for the talkative type anyhow so I’m sure he didn’t view it as a big loss.  Sounds like working with him was exhaustively draining even though the finished product was usually top notch.  Didn’t Nicholson talk about how filming scenes in the Shining was exhausting? Also remember reading someplace that actors in Full Metal Jacket were volunteering to have their characters killed off.  Similarly I always enjoyed the story of Joel Schumacher hating Val Kilmer so much on the set of their Batman movie that when they filmed the final scene he said “Cut!  Now get the hell off my set!”

    The scene in which Wendy is swinging a bat at Jack is an example of this pushing. The scene actually made it into The Guinness Book of Records because it took 127 takes, the most for a scene with spoken dialogue.

     

    :lol: :ohmy:   Even Felger would balk at repeating the same take for the 127th time

    That Nurkic injury last night was awful.  I also learned that Jared Dudley is still in the league  :blink:

    He was, But Lee Marvin told Spielberg that he loved to go fishing while he’s on vacation from making movies, so he didn’t want to make a movie about fishing. Hayden was choice #2.

    Also, later George C. Scott had a partial change of heart about Strangelove. Maybe he never did speak to Kubrick, but he eventually started telling anyone who would listen how unexpectedly funny he was in that movie, and it became a point of pride. “I’m hilarious!”  :lol:
