National’s shortstop Ian Desmond entered spring training with a decent lip cover, but compared to Joba Chamberlain he looks like Burt Reynolds.
For some reason, more than once in my youth, my mom dressed me up as a hobo for Halloween. Probably because it was an easy, affordable costume. I would wear old dirty clothes and my mom would put vaseline and coffee grounds on my face for a beard. It appears that’s what’s happening here with New York Yankee pitcher Joba Chamberlain’s mustache. He really ought to get a paper towel and wipe it clean as to stop embarrassing himself and real men with real mustaches.
Peter Dinklage, or “The Dink” as I assume his friends call him, is an actor who was in a pretty good movie called The Station Agent in 2003. He was also in Elf. Um yeah, he was in 30 Rock. He is in Game of Thrones. I don’t have much to say about him, as you can tell. I just wanted to say “the dink”.
Happy 50th Birthday Charles Barkley! Sometimes I forget that Barkley was more than a funny, outspoken player. He is a member of the NBA Hall of Fame He was an NBA MVP, a gold medalist on the Dream Team, an 11 time All-Star and finished his career with over 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 4.000 assists. According to this picture, he also enjoyed going to see adult movies in the theater.
Argo is available today on DVD/Blue Ray and probably still in movie theaters with really sticky floors for less than you’d pay a few weeks ago. It is a pretty good flick. If you don’t trust my taste in movies (you shouldn’t), you’ll be happy to hear It was nominated for an Oscar for best moving picture. I thought that John Goodman and Alan Arkin were amazing in it. In addition, there were some beautiful steeshes. Here are some of them.
Rory Cochrane played Lee Schatz, a member of the USDA stationed in Iran when people got mad at America and started rioting. I was really tired when the movie started and I don’t know much in the way of Iranian-American relationship history so I think you’re going to want to check it out for yourself to figure out why this stuff was happening. Something about the leader being too westernized or something, but he didn’t even dress like a cowboy, so it’s hard to tell.
Regardless of what was happening in the film, Rory plays a fine Schatz, assuming Schatz had a mustache and drives people crazy when they see him because people think they know him but can’t figure out from where and then they google him and realize he was Lucas from Empire Records.
Scoot McNairy played another one of those guys who was trapped in Iran waiting for Ben Affleck‘s beard to save him. I can’t really do anymore research for this post, so let’s just say his glasses are ridiculously huge, and Scoot sounds like a Canadian character on South Park would say Scott.
Zeljko Ivanek plays a guy who has a mustache in Argo. If you remember back a few months ago, he also plays a guy with a mustache in Seven Psychopaths. He looks more like a psychopath in this movie than the other.
Christoph Waltz hosted SNL last weekend. During the monologue they pranced out a number of characters meant to make fun of Waltz’s native Austria, one of which was Casual Hitler played by Taran Killam.
Casual Hitler is probably very offensive to a lot of people, but it can’t be more offensive than some of the movies Taran (who is very funny) was in before getting on to SNL, like Big Fat Liar or Epic Movie.
Jack White was named this year’s Record Store Ambassador and released a note pretty much telling people to stop relying so much on computers, phones and the internet. I agree with some of what he says. Jack, let’s get a cup of coffee and talk it over.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, married couple Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally answered questions and shared relationship advice with The A.V. Club.
Who is gong to be the next pope? No one knows, but if this guy shows up looking for the job I hope people realize it’s just Pope Benedict XVI with a steesh.
Why does the mustache cover his nose? I made this picture in 2008 when me no good at Photoshop. Somehow I remember that the mustache belongs to Paul Teutul Sr., so I guess I haven’t had much going on over the last 5 years.
It looks like Bill Murray hasn’t shaved much since the last time we saw him. I think this picture was taken as Bill left a model train convention.
I just saw this picture on the Breaking Bad Facebook page and I think I am legally obligated to share it here. Enjoy.
Daryl “Razor” Reaugh, or Daryl “I Lost My Razor” Reaugh as the insufferable Chris Berman might call him, is a retired goalie, and current color commentator for the Dallas Stars, The NHL on Versus and Hockey Night in Canada. I don’t know much about hockey ay, but this guys got a nice duster.
First, I apologize for the title of this post. It’s gross in that rashes are gross and also just a horrible joke. Not even close to funny. So, I’M SORRY.
Next, I am really starting to get excited about seeing Jim Rash as Dean Pelton tonight. He is really funny and makes me feel uncomfortable, which I think is a good thing because I’ve heard a lot of girl say the same thing about me.
I was watching Seinfeld last night and couldn’t stop thinking about how much I like Jerry Stiller. Between Frank Costanza on Seinfeld and Arthur Spooner on King of Queens, he has brought me an awful lot of joy.
ESPN the Magazine has put together a music issue featuring athletes posing as famous album covers. Here is Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman as Michael Jackson (slightly modified) on the Thriller cover.
The issue also features NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson as Bob Dylan and track and field sprinter Allyson Felix as Beyoncé. You’ve got to give it to ESPN the Magazine for knowing their audience. They took athletes their readers might usually not care about and dressed them up as musicians they probably don’t care about.
