Random Observations and Such

Now That Was Intense TV

Don't know how many people watch HBO's Boardwalk Empire, but I have to say that last nights episode, Two Imposters was 50 minutes of the most intense drama I've ever watched. They never letup on the gas pedal from start to finish. Brilliant!

Steve Buscemi as Enoch "Nucky" Thompson
Things have gotten so bad for the woefully mismanaged New York Jets that even Fireman Ed has bailed.

Fireman Ed
Gee, we'll really miss those J-E-T-S chants.
Is Ed Anzalone a self important oaf or is he finally facing the reality that the New York Jets are a poor second fiddle to the New York Giants? The Giants, in contrast are a well run organization with a terrific coach in Tom Coughlin.  Rex Ryan has proven to be a buffoon along with the rest of the team. Any organization reflects from the top down. Jets owner Woody Johnson is a clown and the Jets are a joke.

RIP Alexandra "Sasha" McHale

Terrible news about former Boston Celtics forward and current Houston Rockets coach Kevin McHale about the loss of his daughter Alexandra "Sasha" McHale at age 23. Condolences to Mr. McHale and his family.

Casablanca is 70 Years Old Today

The classic motion picture, Casablanca debuted 70 years ago today. One of my all time favorites.

Humphrey Bogart did not say "Play it again Sam" as is often misquoted. It was "If she can stand it I can. Play it." 

He did, however say, "Here's looking at you, kid." Twice.

And finally, my favorite line from the movie: "I was misinformed."

As my dad used to say all the time, "They don't make 'em like they used to."
