Film Friday: Tommy Boy

Better late than never….

For today’s “Film Friday,” brought to you on this fine Saturday, the spotlight is on the movie I named the 4th best comedy of all-timeTommy Boy.
Easily the best movie of Chris Farley’s short career, Tommy Boy is the kind of movie you talk about with co-workers and the lines from the movie just start flowing. A few (of many) best lines:

“Fat guy in a little coat, fat guy in a little coat”

“Housekeeping, you want mint for your pillow”

“Did you eat a lot of paint chips when you were a kid?”

“Richard, who’s your favorite little rascal? Alfalfa…or is it SPANKY?

“I used to grab bear claws as a kid, 2 at a time, and I’d get them lodged in this region here.”

“Richard, do I have a mark on my face? It really hurts. Right here. Not here or here so much. Right here.”

“Do you know where the weight room is?”

“The next thing you know there’s money missing off the dresser and your daughters knocked up.”

“Bees, bees, bees in the car! Bees everywhere! God they’re huge…they’re ripping my flesh off. Run away, your firearms are useless against them.”

“R.T. I lost my virginity to your daughter for crying out loud. Rob, you were there.”

Farley left us far too early, having appeared in only 10 movies (4 as the lead) at the time of his death. Black Sheep, Beverly Hills Ninja and Almost Heroes had their moments, but never came close to the pure gold that was Tommy Boy. His supporting roles in Billy Madison and Dirty Work produced some memorable scenes as well. It’s hard to believe that Chris has been dead going on 13 years. He will live on forever in my life in some of the quotes I listed above. Enjoy these YouTube clips of the great Chris Farley.

Cheers and Hail

We’ve all played the game, there’s 5 seconds left on the clock when you receive the inbounds pass. A head fake and a couple dribbles later you throw up the final shot and……clank? Well, even if you made it you were the only one who saw it. Usually you miss, try for the follow up shot (miss,) and play it back again.

Enjoy Tommy Boy himself imitating Christian Laettner. (and look forward to March Madness)

Cheers and Hail

Fantasy Thoughts Of The Week (that don’t include Audrina Patridge)


It’s playoff time in Fantasy Football land, and hopefully your team is in the playoffs. I’ve made the playoffs in all of my leagues, but I’m not feeling too confident. Bad decisions and bad trades have doomed the Fatpickles and the 22 Swinging Dicks.
This is the time of year where you have really great Sundays, or really shitty ones. I mean it really sucks if the team you root for and your fantasy team get knocked out of the playoffs on the same day. I sure hope that doesn’t happen, it’s a double whammy! And if you are a gambler and have a bad day on top of this, oh man! You’ll be in the dumps till Christmas. But I am forever an optimist and I hope everyone reading this is a winner come Sunday!
My Studs this week are all guys that were on my team, but I traded them away. I cannot believe how bad these trades have become (for me). I’m hoping by labeling them Studs they will actually become Duds this weekend!
Aaron Rodgers – I traded Rodgers for Jay Cutler several weeks ago. Cutler has been good, but Rodgers has been better.
Shaun Hill – I traded Shaun Hill for Brady Quinn. I wanted Quinn (a backup at the time) forgetting the fact that Hill was a starter for a Mike Martz’s Offense. Quinn is out for the year!
D’Angelo Williams – I traded Williams for Joseph Addai. At the time Williams was in a time share with Stewart, since the trade he is the #1 RB in Fantasy Football! Addai hasn’t done much and hurt himself again in practice this week, he’s questionable for Sunday!
Marques Colston – I traded Colston for Vincent Jackson. After drafting Colston in the 4th round, he missed 6 weeks with a broken finger. I traded him and he is now playing like a top tier WR. Oh yeah, I didn’t start Jackson Thursday Night! 5rec/148yds/59yd TD
Chad Johnson - I traded him for Derek Anderson. Johnson hasn’t done much, but Anderson immediately lost his job and when he regained it, he blew out his knee. He is out for the year.
Oh well, if I lose I’ll have more time to work on my sales technique!

Cheers and Hail
