        1. I think I'm about there as well.

          I don't know if I can talk about it without ruining it. I thought it was a different conceit on the idea. Pike was excellent.

          I watched it through Teleparty with a friend, so the movie coupled with the post-movie discussion was plenty to make it an entertaining evening.

  1. Twins Daily posed the question, "What is your favorite ballpark tune?" after posting a complaint about "Centerfield" being overplayed. I think my favorite tune is whatever the ballpark organist wants to play. I'd rather hear that than anything pre-recorded.

      1. The organist at the Ft. Wayne Komets hockey games when I was growing up was awesome. Any questionable call, or missed call, got several bars of Three Blind Mice.

  2. Things Presidential (From the Scandia Messenger):

    James Madison and George Washington are the only Presidents who signed the Constitution.
    John F. Kennedy was the first President who was a Boy Scout.
    The 'S' in Harry S. Truman does not stand for anything.
    Martin Van Buren was the first President to be born as a citizen of the United States. The presidents before him were born as British subjects.
    President Gerald Ford was the first President and Vice President without ever being elected.
    Ulysses S. Grant smoked 20 cigars a day, which probably caused the throat cancer that resulted in his death.
    Zachary Taylor didn't vote until the age of 62. Until that time, he had not established an official place of residence because he had moved many times as a soldier.
    George Washington was the only American President to be unanimously elected.
    Thomas Jefferson wrote his own epitaph never mentioning that he served as president. His epitaph read, "Author of the Declaration of American Independence, Author of the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom and the Father of the University of Virginia."
