Well, you've read the notes, you've gotten comfortable with the notes, you've Frenched the notes, and now it is time for you to post until the cows with the plunging necklines come home.

Just as I went to post the notes, AOL "quit" for about the eighth time today.  I had to reinsert the notes into the form after I logged on - which is why they went up late.  A POX on AOL.

I don't really enjoy "Sports" films much at all - particularly anything to do with Boxing. "Cool Running" was quite fun but way ahead of every thing else IMHO is "Breaking Away".

Sports movies: I like Ice Castles for skating, Pride of the Yankees for baseball, I hate football so I don't know from football movies, Strangers on a Train for tennis, the Harlem Globetrotters movie from the fifties for basketball, and Slap Shot for hockey.

I'm doing the meringue right now - it is fun, especially in a chiffon gown with plunging neckline.

Welcome five GUESTS.

I still think a wonderful film could be made about wrestling - there have been a few, but they're all lousy.

BK, glad to each Mr. Eastwood is on his usual form.  As you say, no pretention, nothing to prove, no look at how clever I am.  Just finding the best way to tell the story.  He also respects writers by not taking a possessive credit.  A class act.  Looking forward to seeing this movie.  My birthday wish this year is for Clint Eastwood dust off one of those great scripts of mine lying around and take it out and shoot it.

My favourite sport is baseball.  I watch and root for the Cincinnati Reds and have since I was a boy in the fifties watching them play in Crosley Field and were called the Cincinnati Redlegs ( so no commie baiters would confuse them for reds of a Russkie sort).  I follow the Reds these days until they break my heart somewhere before the All-star break, then I don't open the sports page again until Spring Training starts in February.   My only other sport is Scrabble.

I'll have to think about sports movies.  But as I'm now another year older, I must wuss out for tonight.

I was thinking what it would have been like if Scorsese had made Million Dollar Baby and Eastwood had made The Aviator.  Scorsese would have hyped up MDB like crazy - it would have been all about him, all about Oscar bait, just as his The Aviator is.  Whereas, if Clint had done The Aviator, that film might have actually told a story and been good.

Yes, Breaking Away was a lovely film. I also liked Bull Durham; Stay Hungry; The Hustler; Pride of the Yankees; Rocky; the documentaries When They Were Kings and Pumping Iron.
I'm sure there are more. It's actually surprising that for someone who is not really into sports, there are so many sports movies I like. I suppose it's because they're good movies which happen to take place in that world.

It's not really "about wrestling" -- but wrestling at a school level is an important element in THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GARP.

And then there's always that artiste, Hulk Hogan.

I seem to be a copying you, Tomovoz, but I also enjoyed Bend it Like Beckham.

I think my Japanese food was spiked with caffeine. I am SO awake.

Bang the Drum Slowly - was that TV? A good football movie. And I wrote a football TV-movie  - hard as that may be to believe.

let me get this straight -- we're discussing cross-dressing and sports. Am I correct?

 Bang the Drum Slowly was a film, not TV.  Brian's Song was TV and I liked that one even though it was football.  Oh, and Fear Strikes Out is good if you like baseball mixed with mental illness.

Did you know that when I was in my early twenties I played on a softball team for about six months.  Other players included Richard Dreyfuss, Angela Cartwright, Charlie Martin Smith, and more.

Sad to be all alone in the world.  I guess I'll toddle off to bed, since I don't feel like doing a monologue.

I'd have thought apricot, much better for your skin tone.
