  1. Just because everyone in the world knows Diana Ross, and most people know Mary Wilson, a thread to honor: Florence Ballard.
  2. A 26-year-old Lee Majors, in a 1965 "Alfred Hitchcock Hour" episode. His voice got appreciably deeper in the 1970s - it's strange hearing him talk at this age.
  3. I'm taking this moment to tip my cap to Milt Pappas, surely one of the most underrated, underappreciated players in MLB history. Pappas is best-known for "the main player in the Frank Robinson trade." That's fine, but why did the Reds want him so badly? Look at his stats: a career record of 209-164. 13 seasons with at least 12 Wins, a 3-time All-Star, and the NL leader in shutouts in 1971. This gentleman is worth remembering; not as fodder for Frank Robinson, but as a winner of 54% of his games over the course of his 17-year Major-League career - he won between 12-17 games in 13
  4. If you want to pay a brief tribute to Burt Reynolds, watch "The Bard," (<--- Hulu link here) where he forever-angered Marlon Brando. (Really, how many people know that Reynolds got decked by William Shakespeare?) I watched "Deliverance" last night for about the fifth time, and loved it just as much as ever.
  5. Aretha Franklin is an incredible American institution: the Queen of Soul. Her music blended soul and gospel with a powerful emotive voice. I believe she had over 100 top hits. Her voice was dominant in the 1960's and 70's. She literally helped create an incredibly popular music genre. Her voice was beautiful and powerful. She transcended Soul. Currently she is terribly ill and in hospice care. Bless you Aretha. So many examples of her music: I'm often grabbed by scenes from film. Here are a couple of examples: From the Blues Brothers, 1980. Aretha puts the Song Think
  6. Cousins was a terrible pick for the 'skins. Picking Cousins undermined RGIII. When Cousins played, he played just well enough for the 'skins to tag him, but not well enough to get the team anywhere, and not bad enough to not pay him year to year. So year after year, the 'skins didn't make the play-off and didn't suck enough to get a high draft pick. So how's picking Cousins brilliant?
  7. Most people know Martin Milner as Officer Pete Malloy on Adam-12, some people know him as Tod Stiles on Route 66, and almost nobody knows what a *tremendous* actor he was. And I can prove it to you in one hour: There's one, single episode of Route 66 that should have won Milner an Emmy Award, and quite honestly, I can't fathom how it didn't. Season 2, Episode 11, "The Thin White Line" (here on Hulu) is an honest-to-God, one-man, tour-de-force by Milner, and it's unlike any other Route 66 episode. In my entire life, I have never seen such demands put on an actor in a single hour - M
  8. This is a tough one for me. Soundgarden are one of my favorite bands of all time, and Chris Cornell is one of the truly great frontmen and songwriters in rock history. "With Chris Cornell's Death, We've Lost Another of the Grunge Era's Towering Rock Stars, and One of Its Best Songwriters" by Steven Haydn on uproxx.com I have many memories of Soundgarden, including a number of concerts, but my main one is me and my friend, as freshmen in college, heading to Laserdisk in Salem, OR, to pick up Superunknown at midnight when it was released (this was something you did back in the early a
  9. One carry, one touchdown: that's a 100% career mark, tying the national record for touchdown efficiency. Keith Orr, running back for the Olivet Eagles:
  10. If you, like me, knew virtually nothing about the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, except that you've been hearing murmurings about it on the news, this is a good article to start with - it's written at the level which assumes you know nothing: "How Water Crisis in Flint, Michigan Became Federal State of Emergency" by Jessica Durando on usatoday.com "Who Poisoned Flint, Michigan" by Stephen Roderick on rollingstone.com People do not realize how *expensive* it is to maintain our infrastructure. I worked with the wastewater section folks at EPA for a few years, and I got snippets of just h
  11. Where in Saugatuck? I lived in Douglas for a bit and found the dining options pretty limited. Also, I never miss an opportunity to get a coney dog with red pop anytime I'm in the greater Detroit area. Most any coney island will do but I'm partial to Athens or Leo's.
  12. We've had three earthquakes in the U.S. in the past 24 hours: "Dallas Earthquake Today: Magnitude 3.1 Quake Shakes Texas CIty, Third US Earthquake in 24 Hours" by Phillip Ross on ibtimes.com I wonder if these are obscure variations of aftershocks from the Nepal quake. This stuff is all interconnected, and a map of it looks like a lymphatic system on a human body:
  13. I grew up in Lexington, Kentucky, the child of a UK faculty member. The whole family will be together in Colorado on Saturday to watch the games. It's also Passover, which puts a bit of a crimp in themed food plans. What flour and booze-free foods would you serve to represent each team? Wisconsin is easy--it must be cheese. Or cheese and brats. Michigan is probably something with cherries. Duke is far harder for us because NC 'que is all about the pork. (In our family we might opt to ignore Duke because if you grow up in Lexington, your second-favorite team is whoever is playing against
  14. Another request from the field, and an excellent pairing to last week's Single-Wide I.P.A., we have Founders All Day IPA. The All Day IPA is named because it is a session beer clocking in at a low 4.7%. Right now it's only available in bottles, but Founders is supposed to be be releasing cans later this summer. I had this a few weeks ago, and remember thinking it's pretty good for a cookout beer. Founders has been one of my favorite breweries since the first bottle of their breakfast stout oh so many years ago. This is their newest "fully available" beer, and, as of May, has become thei
