Like The Fat Lady Has Sung...
One of the most
beloved people to ever squat in public, New York Yankee's catcher Yogi
Berra died this week at the tender age of 90. Berra was an integral
part of the famous Yankee lineup, garnering many World Series Championships.
When asked by one of his teachers - who was returning a test to Berra with a lower-than-passing grade - "Don't you know anything?" Berra replied "I don't even suspect anything"
Another time someone asked him what time it was. "Do you mean now?" replied Berra.
Once, Yogi's wife Carmen asked, "Yogi, you are from St. Louis, we live in New Jersey, and you played ball in New York. If you go before I do, where would you like me to have you buried?" Yogi replied, "Surprise me."
I'll bet he's pretty surprised along about now.

That Darn Cat!
|He was some cat,
alright (but in the hipster sense - and this is likely the only time you
will see 'Dean Jones' and 'hipster' in the same item....) Ok, so he played
opposite the cat....
Probably best known for his roles in Disney movies - That Darn Cat and the Herbie series most notably - Jones appeared all over the silver screen, on Broadway and particularly the little screen.
Monkeys Go Home! was probably not the brightest moment in his career....
I remember him mostly from a television show from my youth, Ensign O'Toole. Click on the picture above to see the amazingly long list of guests on that show - he worked with just about everybody that was working at the time.
Jones died recently at age 84.

Believe In Reincarnation?
|Separated At Birth?
Ok, so this topic has obviously been done before - but not here.
I can still recall the fuss from my earliest childhood.

Anybody else out there have any similar experiences....?

One of the music-centric cable channels ran the Director's Cut of the film Woodstock t'other day, presumably because it was the anniversary of the legendary festival. Check out the poster: the real name of the wingding was the "Woodstock Music and Art Fair," but few remember the Art part. Hecksakes, the film barely showed any art, but, given the Olympian stature of the musical acts, it's not surprising.
One of the noteworthy aspects of the film was how half a million "hippie freaks" look less bizarre from today's distance.
Question: which one is the cowboy, and which is the freak?
