Maureen was VERY attractive as a young lady.My first crush
March 1st, 20111:05 am
Hey, Ward, I was just talking about you. I missed the time of your arrival by 5 minutes.
March 1st, 20111:08 am
Mt Fair lady is prolly my favorite musical, but Hepburn stole Julie Andrews part, and Audrey is way too fey and skinny for my taste
Tom O’ Hawke: Driving in this snow sucks……but I’ll deal with it. Nice Braves win today……….
March 1st, 20111:11 am
nolie, I was probably at Little League age. The only thing I would have noticed back then was the face.
Ward, how much snow did you get? Or… are you getting?
March 1st, 20111:12 am
N8: I disagree with you . I would rather have a solid ss who could hit for power.Gonzalez is a great player to haveon on the ball club. Yunal was cocky, and too much into himself… plus we have some good short stops coming up in two or three years. Play Gonzalez until then…….We don’t wan’t a child named Yunal E……..
March 1st, 20111:13 am
We are getting 6 to 8 inches tonight…….
March 1st, 20111:14 am
Hepburn stole Julie Andrews part
Care to elucidate?
March 1st, 20111:16 am
Ward, I guess living in Montana you’re probably pretty much used to snow and can handle it, right?
March 1st, 20111:20 am
I live over by the Falthead Lake area, and yeah you get used to it after a while…….
March 1st, 20111:22 am
I have to go forage, build a fire, then cook up my harvest. If any of you are still here after I accomplish that, then I’ll see you later.
If not, then good night.
March 1st, 20111:24 am
If Nate comes back hitting. We could play “:Welcome Back”………..song for him……
March 1st, 20111:25 am
Julie made the part on Broadway, but when it came to the movie she was shunted aside for Audrey who didn’t even sing her songs except for Just You Wait.
It wasn’t really Audrey’s fault I guess the producers wanted a known movie star, but of course Julie did Mary Poppins at that same time instead and became a huge musical name who could actually sing.
In the ending of the original play Eliza makes it clear that she will marry Freddy. Shaw later wrote an essay in which he explained precisely why it was impossible for the story to end with Higgins and Eliza getting married, though they would continue to be close throughout their lives. Higgins himself does not appear to want to marry Eliza. Towards the end of the original play, he sees the future as “You and I and Pickering will be three old bachelors together instead of only two men and a silly girl.”
The ending of the stage version of My Fair Lady comes from the 1938 film version of Pygmalion, starring Leslie Howard and Wendy Hiller; This ending was faithfully retained in the film version
March 1st, 20111:30 am
What does every one think about Tom Cruz doing Broadway?
March 1st, 20111:36 am
I think it’s a stunt to save his career……If he fails it’s going to desroy Tom Cruz’s career…
Frank from KS(now livin in CO)
March 1st, 20111:37 am
Nolie – I still to this day, think my favorite of hers is, of course, with the Duke and McLintock…
Even though he’s working on Top Gun 2, and another Mission impossible film……
March 1st, 20111:40 am
Frank from KS(now livin in Co) have you ever seen Lone Wolf McQuade?Great classic movie…..
March 1st, 20111:46 am
McLintock was very good. The Quiet Man was great. all together they made 5 together I think, and were friends the rest of his life.
March 1st, 20111:47 am
I liked Lone Wolf but it hardly qualifies as a “classic”
March 1st, 20111:48 am
maybe it could be considered a classic Chuck Norris movie….
March 1st, 20111:49 am
Personally, I don’t understand how he could go from being “misunderstood” one year to a cancer the next. I get that players and coaches probably wanted to coddle him a little bit, but I’m just one of those people who doesn’t really care all that much about chemistry. If you’re a professional baseball player, there are some things you’re going to have to deal with…clashes of personality being one. Hell, I have to deal with my archnemesis everyday in class and I do just fine; they can, too.
As for the infamous standing ovation, I thought that was pretty classless. Most of the guys in that clubhouse probably barely knew Gonzalez, if at all, so it bothers me that they would stand up and cheer because one of their longtime teammates was gone. Escobar was one of my favorite players, so when I found out he was traded I wasn’t happy. Then after reading a little bit about Gonzalez and his stats and seeing him make dumbass errors and striking out in key places, well…
The players may have raised him up on a pedestal, but they shouldn’t be disappointed when they realize he’s afraid of the height.
March 1st, 20111:51 am
If you see this tomorrow…
I had a professor use the word “bifurcated” in conversation with the class today. It made my day. Just thought you should know…
March 1st, 20111:54 am
Thanks, nolie. I did see your 1:25 effort.
Correct me if I’m wrong (yeah, like I had to tell you that), but didn’t Audrey want to, and was capable to, sing ALL of the songs in the movie? But for some reason the (producer or director) wanted her to lip-synch to someone else?
March 1st, 20111:55 am
I’m not all that big on chemistry either, seen too many teams with little of it succeed so I didn’t like the trade, but I didn’t think it would make all that much difference, and it didn’t .
I’ve never liked Gonzo cause of his penchant for making a whole lot of outs and I would likely be a bit happier with Esco here this spring and him gone, but he is still a bit above average defensively and he is cheap so I’ll struggle trough another year.
I hope they both do well this season.
March 1st, 20111:58 am
her voice was considered too weak and a bit shrill by those in the know so they used VJ’s friend Marni Nixon.
I hope they both do well this season.
Of course I do, too. Crow tastes a lot better than defeat.
March 1st, 20112:00 am
it’s kinda surprising but she was in a Western with Burt Lancaster and Audie Murphy called The Unforgiven. Pretty decent film actually
March 1st, 20112:01 am
my top Ten Westerns
1. The good The Bad and The Ugly
2. Fist Full Of Dollars
3.For a Few Dollars More
4.Out Law Josey Wales
5. High Plains Drifter
6. Hang ‘Em High
8.Unforgiven Clint Eastwood
9.Young Guns 1and 2
The Quick And The Dead :Sharon Stone, and Gene Hackman
March 1st, 20112:02 am
9.Young Guns 1and 2
I didn’t know they made a movie about the Braves rotation when they were still in the West…
March 1st, 20112:03 am
no Once Upon a Time in the West ward?
did you ever watch any with someone other than Clint in it?
I did not care much at all for High Plains Drifter
March 1st, 20112:05 am
with the hundreds and hundreds of great Westerns produced over 7 decades I’d hate to think that most all of my favorites were Eastwood vehicles, not that I don’t like most all of his but there have been any number of better ones produced
March 1st, 20112:06 am
nolie: Clint Easwood rules………..There you go………smile
March 1st, 20112:08 am
Clint Eastwood my favorite actor…..
As for the infamous standing ovation, I thought that was pretty classless.
I think I may have learned something about that, from the previous page. Bat Masterson, and then Jake W. (on the very next post) both alluded to a different story concerning that.
It seems as though the Braves were clapping (about the trade?), when A Gon walked in. The Braves just continued to clap, as maybe welcoming him?
If that’s true, then it certainly changes that story around. (See Bat)
March 1st, 20112:10 am
weren’t they kidding about the team thinking it was someone else in the trade like ARod or did I misread that?
March 1st, 20112:11 am
Gee ward I would never have guessed…
March 1st, 20112:13 am
It’s all cool nolie, I watched some John Wayne ones too……Favorite John Wayne movie is The Horse Soldiers…….
March 1st, 20112:15 am
I like Clint a lot ward, he has been in very few pictures that I didn’t care for.
March 1st, 20112:23 am
I liked Open Range, Texas Rangers, The Lone Ranger movie, Appaloosa,and the new 3:10 To Yuma. Those would be the other westerns……
March 1st, 20112:26 am
so how many times did John Wayne die in a movie?
March 1st, 20112:27 am
Thats a good question, anbody up for that one?
March 1st, 20112:28 am
I guess I should word that : In how many movies did John Wayne die, since he never died more than once in any one movie….
March 1st, 20112:29 am
looks like there might not be anybody else here but usens ward.
March 1st, 20112:30 am
weren’t they kidding about the team thinking it was someone else in the trade like ARod or did I misread that?
As far as Bat & Jake W.’s comments are concerned, you misread that. Bat just said it was serendipitous clapping for AG. Jake W. was asking about a rumor that he had heard the Braves were clapping upon hearing this great deal they thought the Braves made for AG. Then AG walked in.
It’s the first I’ve heard about any of this, but if true, it does change the story.
March 1st, 20112:32 am
I took it as facetiousness Tom. I guess I am thinking of some one elses comment on the other thing.
March 1st, 20112:33 am
Tom O’ Hawke: I would clap for Gonzalez too. He’s a great player……
March 1st, 20112:34 am
I have no idea, but I’ll guess that number would be the same as my favorite, Clint Eastwood. (yeah, me too, Ward)
March 1st, 20112:35 am
nah, way more often that Clint.In fact did Clint ever die?
March 1st, 20112:37 am
I took it as facetiousness Tom.
With Bat, that’s a good assumption, nolie. However, they both posted similar happenings, back to back. That makes me believe there’s at least some story going around about it. True or false, I don’t know?
March 1st, 20112:38 am
I know he got his leg(s) cut off in one movie but I cant remember him dying in one
Clint came close in Out Law Josey Wales,but that was close……
March 1st, 20112:39 am
No, not that I can remember, nolie. That was my guess – zero. I guess that’s what I just scored on your test – zero.
March 1st, 20112:40 am
maybe but I’ve elaborated on silly stories b4 when in the mood. didn’t make it any less facetious after I said it too . anyhow, who knows?
March 1st, 20112:41 am
The Duke died in 9 movies I believe. That used to be a popular trivia 30 or 40 years ago
Latenight Bail Bond Guy
March 1st, 20112:42 am
The Duke died in “The Cowboys” and the “Shootist”, that I know for sure, can’t think of any others.
March 1st, 20112:45 am
The Alamo, he played Davy Crockett, so thats three.
March 1st, 20112:46 am
he wasn’t killed but he died in Liberty Valance
March 1st, 20112:47 am
nolie, when you see Bat today, ask him more about that A Gon story.
I have to go to bed before I fall asleep with my headphones on, again.
Good night morning, y’all.
nolie: That was interesting I did’t know that with the Duke…..Clint Eastwood has come close in a few of his movies,but I don’t think he died in any of them…..
March 1st, 20112:48 am
Tom O’ Hawke we could have N8 tell us an essay! smile………
March 1st, 20112:52 am
Central Airport (1933)
Reap the Wild Wind (1942)
The Fighting Seabees (1944)
Wake of The Red Witch (1948)
Sands of Iwo Jima (1950)
The Alamo (1960)
The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance(1962)
The Cowboys (1970)
The Shootist (1976).
That’s it I think.

How is Heyward looking. Any thumb issue?
March 1st, 20115:39 am
Man, staying up all night talking movies with strangers on a Braves blog is anything BUT DOUBLE PITS TO CHESTY….
March 1st, 20117:16 am
Is it Marietta Derek or DerekZ?
March 1st, 20118:01 am
Nope. According to O’Brien (and I asked him directly and specifically), the team rose out of their chairs as one and commenced to applauding.
March 1st, 20118:10 am
Stirring the pot again,scoots.
March 1st, 20118:13 am
Just clarifying, CB. No need for folks to misunderstand the circumstances, regardless of one’s stand on the players, the trade, or global warming.

Tenn I dont put much in ST but I am curious how the Centerfielders do. I hope at least one of them is at least solid. If one is they will compete with the Phillies for the division and should at least get the wildcard as long as injuries dont kill us.
March 1st, 20119:01 am

So, whats the story on why people were talking about their height last night? I am intrigued…
Also, so I guess there’s no turning back…Marietta Derek is here to get double pits to chesty with it for awhile…
March 1st, 20119:17 am
hmmm.. Kinman pups. hmmm 4 to 5 strokes. hmmm Speedshaft against Hickories. Those pups sure sound fine, no hmmm. Purdy level odds. heh heh
March 1st, 20119:18 am
My current Shawshank girl is Kate Beckinsale, but I’ve found myself enamored of Carly Foulkes recently. Just something about her in those commercials that I find incredibly appealing.
March 1st, 20119:19 am
I suckered in and bought the mlb at bat 11 app for my Droid Incredible. Im looking forward to having it this season!! Anybody have experience with it in the past and can tell me a little bit about it. Unfortunately I dont have mlb.tv thats way to expensive!!!!!!
March 1st, 20119:27 am
MLB Atbat 2011 is a great ap. I use it to listen to Braves games (and whatever other games) when I’m on the road driving. Just plug it into the car stereo with a 1/8 jack. They have “free” live streaming games also but you have to watch whatever they want. The added video charge to watch probably not worth it for the few times I’m out of dvr capabilities
March 1st, 20119:28 am
It was awful last year bravofan. Even in good service areas, you couldn’t listen to the game for very long, and they didn’t offer video like on the iPhone version.
I hope they’ve made significant improvements to it this year, but I won’t be spending the money to find out.
March 1st, 20119:29 am
You’re post about IQ’s from different countries was surprising. I was shocked to see the US was so high considering some of the posts we see on here. My first year in college I had a class where the teacher passed out a map of continents and wanted people to label them as he named them out loud. I couldn’t believe how many people around me got them wrong. I couldn’t believe college students were that stupid to get something so easy wrong. Sometimes I think some kids could be smarter than their parents.
March 1st, 20119:32 am
Me too, man. Me too. I asked the same a few months back, and was told he occasionally posted on another blog. I can’t remember which; I drink. Seems like it had ‘Chop’ in the title, and a female authoring the content. Hope that helps. If not, I’ve dropped a needle in a haystack over here…
BAS, you poor ol’ sot…You give directions about like my wife. Our friend bubdylan was hanging out at Atlantabaseballtalk. It is run by two dudes. Don’t know if he’s still there, but he’s not here and that’s all that matters. Very funny dude, that guy…much like yourself.
March 1st, 20119:35 am
Maybe he was thinking of “Chop Chick”…
March 1st, 20119:44 am
No question, it’s going to be a great year and the Braves are going to win the Divion and perhaps even the W.S:
IF, McLouth bounces back and has a grear year (bounces back to what – he has never had but one good year in his entire career and that was two or three years ago)
AND IF, Chipper bounces back from his knee injury (Again bounces back to WHAT – he hasn’t had a really good offensive season in the last two years, has very limited range as a defensive 3rd baseman, hasn’t been able to play a full season in who knows when, and is another year old on his significant downhill age slide.)
AND IF, they had a major leage quality Shortstop (their Shortstop is not adequate either offensively or defensively – if you are going to have a championship team>)
AND IF, the rookie first baseman can produce offensively (who knows – there is no indication yet that he can do so at the major league level.)
AND IF, Lowe can have a good year (He had great last part of the season last year, but is now a year older and who knows.)
AND IF, JJ can return to form (he has not really been consistant and effective since his Shoulder injury)
AND IF, the Braves can come up with another effective 5th Starter (there are good prospects – but unproven)
AND IF, they can come up with and effective Closer (Of course, Wagner is gone and this remains a question mark.)
AND IF, they can play adequate defense (They do not have good defense up the middle – or at third base)
AND IF, they can keep Bobby Cox out of the Dugout and away from the team.
Other than these minor problems, everything is great — We have two Starters (Hanson and Hudson) that are not question marks, we have a catcher who is great offensively (but only average defensively), we have Prado in Left who is a great hitter but learning a new defensive positon, we have Heyward in right who hopefully is going to mature into a really good player, and we have Ugla at second base who is great offensively but not so great defensively.

“As for the infamous standing ovation, I thought that was pretty classless”
The whole Yunel soap opera was Bobby Cox’s machination. He is the reason Yunel was alienated. He is the reason for the classless spectacle you mentioned
He is also the reason that Yunel had to be gotten rid of – he was going to be of no value to the Braves, who treated him like garbage
March 1st, 201110:13 am
March 1st, 201110:14 am
Ooh, someone (CB!) always beats me to this so my turn -
March 1st, 201110:15 am
Robert – I call “bullsh!t” on that. I know in your mind you blame Bobby for everything negative that has ever happened the last 20 years, but I believe you are making your imagination run wild. You were not in the clubhouse, and do not have ANY knowledge, personal or even indirect, of exactly what happened in the Escobar case. I believe that Bobby and the Braves organization gave Escobar many opportunities, and much guidance. His failings are on him.
Voice of Harold
Robert, you’ve said a lot of baseless BS on this board, but I think your 10:02 takes the cake. You really believe all the guys in the Braves clubhouse were simply following Cox’s lead with Yunel? You’ve never played baseball, or been on any team above rec ball, have you? Admit it. If you had, you would know what a ridiculous statement that is. You wouldn’t have made it. Oh, wait, yes you would.
Robert = douche
March 1st, 201110:17 am
So, no one knows about the height conversation?!
March 1st, 201110:18 am
Thank the stars Don is here to add some reason to the discussion (rolls eyes)
Still no word on the package…
Actually still says its been processed and in NH…w/ a delivery date of yesterday…no clue whats goin on…
March 1st, 201110:19 am
Voice of Harold-
You mean :
Robert = Arch douche
Voice of Harold,
Great name by the way, one of my favorite REM songs (or should i say rem songs)!
I would not waste my time on Robert. He is a windbag and a total waste of blogging space.
March 1st, 201110:20 am
What happened in the Yunnel case was Yunnel being a Ahole his entire time with the Braves and not being good enough for the Braves to have to deal with it.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
