Richard McWilliam was a co-found of Upper Deck trading cards. Thanks to Richard McWilliam, I have about 10 copies of this card. I never opened a pack and found the elusive Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card, but I don’t hold that against you Richard. RIP Mr. McWilliam.
NBA basketball dunker Blake Griffin put on a fake mustache a week ago while answering inane questions like “Will you ever learn how to shoot a basketball?” and “Do you even practice shooting a basketball?” All I know is with that mustache, he’s an earring and and track suit away from becoming Sinbad. Are they remaking House Guest yet?
Dan “The Beast” Severn retired this week after a long career in which he unneccessarily fought other gentlemen for prizes. Severn fought in 127 MMA fights on record. That’s right, he voluntarily got into a cage to fight another human being 127 times. And Severn fought before there were actual “rules” in place. The ESPN article says he fought in UFC 4…..3 times that night.
*If you were to look up “scumbag” in the dictionary, you wouldn’t see George McCaskey’s picture because [a] the dictionary doesn’t have pictures and [b] I don’t think dictionaries are produced anymore. But for arguments sake let’s say the dictionary is still mass produced and does contain pictures, you still might not see George McCaskey’s picture. There’s been a lot of scumbags over time. I forget where I was going with this. Anyways, George Halas owned and coached the Chicago Bears football team, a perenial powerhouse. Since then, the generations of family members that followed have all been Fredo Correleone’s without a single Michael. George is another Fredo. In fact, he’s even growing a mustache like one.
*I don’t know much about the Chicago Bears or George McCaskey. I got my information from people’s twitter feeds. That’s an acceptable source in 2013, right?
If you couldn’t tell, that’s David Hasselhoff behind that clever mustache work on the hit(?) television show, “Knight Rider.” I haven’t seen much of the show to give any funny tidbits about The Hoff and his evil twin. All I do know is that Mr. Feeny is the voice of KITT and that’s all you really need to know as far as I’m concerned.
In the spirit of day time soap operas, we present the mustache of Zeev Katz, the evil twin of Raanan Katz. Raanan Katz has been all over the internets recently for suing Google (dodged a bullet, Bing) for an unflattering still of himself. When you’re rich and bored, you have the time to sue Google.
We want to repeat, REPEAT, that the above picture is Zeev Katz, the evil twin of Raanan Katz. It’s NOT Raanan Katz. I’m trying to put my kid through college with the profits on the website.
Ebay has everything for sale. You want proof? A man is selling his mustache for charity. Instead of just donating the money straight to the charity like a normal human being, this fella is shaving his mustache, recreating it on pictures of himself, and sending some lucky(?) winning bidder the photos. When it’s done for charity, it’s a noble cause. When it’s done with no charitable donation involved, this man is arrested. Fine line.
Cliff “Good News” Levingston carried the Chicago Bulls to 2 NBA Championships in the early 90s.
Here’s a weird fact about Cliff:
“In 1986, while playing for the Hawks, Levingston had the rare distinction of “fouling into” an NBA game in a game. In a game where Dominique Wilkins and Antoine Carr were injured, Kevin Willis, Scott Hastings, Spud Webb and Levingston fouled out of the game. After Doc Rivers was ejected, the Hawks were down to only four players. Under an obscure rule, Levingston, the last player to foul out, was allowed to come back into the game at the cost of a technical foul.”
The Hawks decided to pass when they realized Cliff would be coming back in and just played with 4.
Cliff Burton was the bassist for Metallica before he died in 1986. If Cliff were alive today, I’d imagine he’d have written several Op-Ed pieces for the Wall Street Journal on the insustainability of our government to function for the people with the callous and irresponsible way in which they conduct business. Or maybe he’d just spit in John Boehner’s face. Either way, ya know?
How many women are instantly going to be pregnant when they see this photo? The Jon Hamm baby boom may cave in the earth when he quadruples the world’s population with this photograph from Adult Swim’s “Greatest Event in Television History.” Greatest event, indeed!
This type of music makes me happy because (a) it will now remind me of your father’s mustache & (b) it reminds me of this delicious restaurant.
Dock Ellis was a pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates who threw a no-hitter while high on LSD*. A no-hitter is hard enough to do, but to do it on LSD is amazing. It must have been real tough not to lose his shit while hallucinating on the mound.
*Dock Ellis never actually threw a no-hitter, but no one had the heart to tell him he was just high in the dugout.
G. Spencer is a Wisconsin State Senator in the 6th district and Milwaukee City Treasurer-elect. Spencer is originally from Milwaukee, which is home to Sobleman’s, the best hamburger place on the planet. So Spence is an ok guy.
Spence’s claim to fame is that he has gone from Mailman to State Senator. Only in Wisconsin.
England Dan & John Ford Coley were a music group in the 1970s. They are known for their hit song “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight.”
In the song, Dan & John are real coy with their intentions when they call up a woman, claiming they’d be all right with just watching tv with them. But that long hair and mustache tell you otherwise, ladies. They’re coming over to get it on.
When my son or daughter asks me what the 1970s were like, I’ll simply show them a picture of the England Dan & John Ford Coley album above. Seems accurate.
According to SI.com’s list of the top 50 earnings by individual athletes in the United States, Barry Zito is tied for 36th place with 20,000,000 dollars. Zito earned this money while pitching well for a different team over a decade ago. Zito was featured in the movie “Moneyball,” where a pitching staff of Hudson / Mulder / Zito carried the Oakland Athletics to the playoffs & the movie was not a story about how Scott Hatteberg and the trade of Jeremy Giambi carried the Oakland Athletics to the playoffs.
