    The more people hate on Tebow, the more I want him to succeed. I dunno why.

    It's not hate, it's point and laugh.

    Obviously I'm completely on board if he wants to turn into a bona fide MLB player. Gonna have to sell something to afford Jake and Thor.

    Italy scores 5 in the bottom of the 9th on zero outs to beat Mexico 10-9.

    Trump really missed out on his running mate.

    Despite being a preseason tournament, US-DR featured Jim Leyland pitching mismanagement as real as any postseason game.

    Re: 2017 MLB Season - The Goat Memorial Thread

    Watched three really good baseball-related things on my DVR today. Smithsonian Channel had a series about Major League Legends last year - the Hank Aaron episode is outstanding. Very well done and insightful. Lou Gehrig's episode was really good, too. If they replay any of them - check it out. I didn't see the Babe Ruth or Ted Williams episodes.

    And then I watched the 30 for 30 about Darryl and Doc. Really interesting, but incredibly depressing. Seems like Darryl is doing OK these days, but I so wish Doc's story could've ended after his no-hitter with the Yankees. Heartbreaking.

    The one with Ted is on 3/21. I've always found his approach to the game fascinating.

    They said it's been 19 years since the last Dodger Stadium rainout. I know the Angels had their first in 20+ seasons a year or two ago.

    US beats Japan 2-1 with the help of a couple fielding errors. They'll take on undefeated Puerto Rico tonight at 9 on MLBN for the championship.

    I just can't watch it. '85 and '86 are so cherished by me, I will go to the grave with my illusions intact. "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend." Or something. That line actually never did make sense.

    Didn't know how many he died in so I looked it up.

    The Shootist (Killed in a gunfight)
    The Cowboys (Killed by Bruce Dern)
    The Alamo (Killed by Santa Anna's army)
    The Sea Chase (Lost at sea, unknown if he was drowned or just got away)
    Sands Of Iwo Jima (Killed by enemy sniper)
    The Fighting Seabees (Killed while under enemy fire)
    Wake of the Red Witch (Killed by giant squid)
    Reap the Wild Wind (Drowns in wreckage)
    Central Airport (He was a corpse)

    They might not be including Liberty because he was dead at the beginning of the movie.

    Then you've been watching the wrong movies. . "Sands of Iwo Jima" got Duke an Oscar nomination but he lost out to Broderick Crawford for "All the Kings Men".

    The Shootist was his last movie where he portrayed an aging gunfighter dying of cancer. Also starred Ron Howard, Lauren Bacall, and Jimmy Stewart.

    I despised Bruce Dern for years when he shot Wayne in the back in The Cowboys. All was forgiven when he did Coming Home.
