Last Minute Father's Day Gifts

Long before salad dressing and iced coffee made him a household name, Paul Newman was an actor.
Yes it's true. He "starred" in b-movies like this tale of a washed-up minor leaugue player-coach trying to save his team from folding. A Bad News Bears for adults.

He actually did rub a pot roast all over his chest. And if you need to know more then you need this biography of Warren Zevon. Just don't read it to the kids.

Who Listens To The Radio?

(a little more sports talk while we're on the subject)
The only radio I listen to is "sports radio", WEEI specifically. I lost interest in "music" radio a long time ago. People keep telling me I NEED satellite radio but from what I hear it's just more of the same. Someone telling me what to listen to. The internet is my music source now. This is what I love about sports and sports radio:
Forty year old Curt Schilling ,of bloody sock fame, comes as close to a no-hitter as possible (two outs in the ninth) and all the callers on WEEI can talk about is how Julio Lugo and J.D. Drew can't hit and are a total waste of Red Sox money. Later that night Lugo hits a leadoff homer and Drew adds not one, but two three-run homers. And while the callers aren't completely wrong it seems like he and Julio get the last laugh.
who listens to the radio - the sports
curt blogs about his one-hitter

(editor's note: Who Listens To The Radio could be confused with On Your Radio by Joe Jackson who should not be confused with "Shoeless" Joe Jackson)
