does tron count?

2002-09-03 01:32:32 AM  
Oh god, I hope I do this is an Mpeg file of Randy Johnson smacking hell out of a pigeon or some other airborne fowl.
2002-09-03 01:32:35 AM  
I'm too lazy to look but is Youngblood on there?
2002-09-03 01:34:05 AM  
And where was that movie with the chick covering herself with whipped cream? "Blue Something" I can't remember...
2002-09-03 01:34:20 AM  
Dr. Toast, exactly the clip I was thinking of, minus the dog, only mine was a 1.5 meg .avi file.

I can't remember where I found it, darn it.
2002-09-03 01:35:56 AM  
Oh it's about 1.3 meg
2002-09-03 01:36:07 AM  
trout stomper

Varsity Blues. That was an okay movie. I was glad the hot teacher got naked, and she drove a Saleen as well
2002-09-03 01:37:01 AM  
I'm sorry but Chariots of Fire is top 5, including the Vangelis soundtrack. Who the f*ck voted?
2002-09-03 01:37:42 AM  

"man, what randy did ain't shiat. all luck. me, i aimed at that muthafarker."
2002-09-03 01:38:18 AM  
It was from a photoshop thread. Ihatemonkies downloaded the video from Kaaza, turned it into a gif and inserted the dog.
2002-09-03 01:38:30 AM  
Anything is NOT possible
2002-09-03 01:39:37 AM  
Chariots of Fire is so amazing..I ran once or twice and I have wondered how Vangelis captured the feeling before a really big race.
2002-09-03 01:41:00 AM  
Again.. Chariots of Fire. Top 5 Easy.

White Men Can't Jump.

Yea. good movie. idiots...
2002-09-03 01:41:33 AM  
I third the vote on Chariots of Fire.

And indeed, who voted for this?
2002-09-03 01:43:12 AM  
Jova: "Anything is NOT possible"

Prove it! Okay that maybe that was an exaggeration although I found this website...
2002-09-03 01:43:13 AM  

Saleen Mustangs don't impress me...this is my baby.

<img src=""

Well, actually this isn't mine...but mine looks very much like this but is dark purple.

However, hot naked teachers do impress me.
2002-09-03 01:43:33 AM  
I'd buy a ticket to see Scott Hamilton break a nail for the Red Wings.

And a good name for that movie would be 'You're on thin ice'

or 'the Dallas Stars suck'

Take your pick.
2002-09-03 01:44:16 AM  
I already mentioned the Cutting Edge...and I thought it was cute...for a romantic commedy that has little to do with actual sport.

DB Sweeny and Moira Kelly were sadly on their way out anyway. Hopefully they will both make a comeback someday.
2002-09-03 01:44:17 AM  

HTML skills also impress me.
2002-09-03 01:45:07 AM  

What, no Top Gun on wheels?
2002-09-03 01:45:07 AM  
2002-09-03 01:45:48 AM  
And indeed, who voted for this?

The full list of voters included Page 2 columnists Bob Halloran, Jeff Merron, Eric Neel, Dan Shanoff, Bill Simmons and Ralph Wiley, Page 2 editors Kevin Jackson, Jay Lovinger, Jim Wilkie and Mary Buckheit, Page 2 contributors Eric Immerman, Kurt Snibbe and Jeff Freedman, plus ESPN The Magazine deputy editors Neil Fine and Gary Belsky.

not exactly siskel or ebert or roeper....or shalit...reed?
2002-09-03 01:46:01 AM  
And I wanna be the first to say that picture is farking huge. I'm sorry. I hear voices and do as they command.

I'm going to bed.
2002-09-03 01:47:34 AM  
Who watches this shiat?

2002-09-03 01:48:32 AM  
The other argument for Chariots if you haven't seen it - and then I'll stop...

The intelligent dissection of what makes a championship athlete tick when it really isn't about the money; the plea for cross-religious understanding and human decency (which would certainly come in handy these days).
2002-09-03 01:48:54 AM  

Bull Durham, number 1???

If I'm bored tomorrow I'm going to email my displeasure to those folks

ooooo..big threat!! ooooo

But seriously, Bull Durham?
2002-09-03 01:49:06 AM  
sweater girl

OOOO OOOO I vote for "the dallas stars suck"!
I even have a part of my website devoted to that.
2002-09-03 01:49:40 AM  
Hey, Bel4sucks:

The Grimson 'fight' can be found here.
2002-09-03 01:50:04 AM  
Should of made the cut:

Happy Gilmore
Mighty Ducks
slam dunk ernest
2002-09-03 01:55:02 AM  
Oh there was no vote and we all know it. They just all sat around getting drunk together one night and this is the result of their beer induced conversation.
2002-09-03 01:55:45 AM  
(The reviews being written afterwards, of course, as the seemed almost savagely sober)
2002-09-03 02:00:10 AM

Kind of answers your question JWest and adds a story.

Well, it answers your question Canada style, they were required to wear them in the 70's.

Pardon my html.
2002-09-03 02:01:04 AM  
I sense a conspiracy.

2002-09-03 02:05:12 AM  
Some of the players in Slap Shot did wear helmets. But they were all different styles and even different colors. Apparently helmets were optional back then, and players were responsible for buying their own.
2002-09-03 02:06:14 AM  

"i don't need no steenking helmet!"
2002-09-03 02:08:08 AM  
My favorite NHL goaltender's helmet, and I can't remember the name of the guy to save my life, was the old style Jason-from-Friday-the-13th kind. He would make a small mark on the face like a scar when he would get hit in the face. Priceless.
2002-09-03 02:08:33 AM  
I saw Summer Catch on cable this morning. Jessica Biel is a piece of ass. That movie is a piece of shiat.
2002-09-03 02:09:21 AM  
Interesting history SG.
The reverse happened to Aussie Rules football in the 70's when all protective gear was stripped down to sideburns and a beergut.
2002-09-03 02:09:46 AM  
Speaking of random events in baseball, in tonights Padres Rockies game, one of the Rockies hit a high choper off the plate down the first base line and the first bounce landed on top of the batters helmet when he was a third of the way down the line. Hilarious. Too bad he was in foul territory when it hit.

Oh yeah, not a movie but I would vote for that episode of X-Files with the baseball playing alien.
2002-09-03 02:10:58 AM  

I can't remember any deaths ON ice, but ask Sweater Girl if she remembers how Terry Sawchuk died.
2002-09-03 02:11:50 AM  
It's brutal
2002-09-03 02:12:36 AM  
I would have thought this was obvious

2002-09-03 02:14:49 AM  
What about Basketball?
2002-09-03 02:15:13 AM

You mean Gerry Cheevers?

2002-09-03 02:16:47 AM  

did you mean
2002-09-03 02:18:29 AM  
CableGuy - It's not possible for us to know a particle's exact position and momentum.
2002-09-03 02:19:55 AM  
Terry..beloved Ranger.

He died of heart failure.
2002-09-03 02:21:37 AM  

Yup it was brutal. I had always heard that Stweart Body slammed Sawchuk down on a hot grill at a BBQ they were having at the house, and then beat his ass. He took a few days to die.

He looks like Hannibal Lecter here.
2002-09-03 02:22:09 AM  
And his case has been listed above. So much for me refreshing.
