At least 2 allusions to Lebowski quotes... especially using the not-often used term "conscientious objector"... makes me think either the author made a bunch of this up, or Koufax was playing with this guy.

I'm glad TFA linked to DiMaggio's response to Paul Simon:

"What I don't understand," DiMaggio said, "is why you ask where I've gone. I just did a Mr. Coffee commercial, I'm a spokesman for the Bowery Savings Bank and I haven't gone anywhere!"

DiMaggio didn't get the counterculture and Koufax doesn't care about the digital revolution.  It's almost like older generations don't care about new shiat.

Koufax used the conscientious objector line before the guy brought up Lebowski.

Unless you're saying he's also psychic?

The Big Lebowski was not a great or important movie. It was a stoner flick. And for a pro athlete who became one of the best ever to play his position and became an icon to his race, being name checked in a stoner flick, only notable because its main character wanders through the film with the same clueless stupor with which many of its viewers wander through life, is not an important life achievement.

(Koufax was prepared with any excuse to decline an interview. He's a pro at that, but he's also been burned unfairly by the press before, the New York Post most notably. Not only that, he used the term "conscientious objector" - which is awesome in itself, because he reached back to the late '60s, the prime of his life, when people were getting drafted into the military and refusing induction.)


yeah, no shiat.  he's notoriously private.  many MLB folks were amazed he took such a "public" role with Los Doyers.

someone post that iconic picture of his perfect game at Chavez Ravine, with him releasing the ball and in depth of field hazy focus, the zeros across the scoreboard.

Almost... that was a no-hitter, but his perfect game was against the Cubs, not the Mets.

He doesn't care? What is he, some kind of nihilist? I mean, say what you will about the basic tenets of National Socialism...at least it's an ethos.
 
2013-03-10 01:49:28 PM
Did he throw on Shabbos?
 
2013-03-10 02:21:42 PM
Wow, I didn't know Sandy was still alive.  Thanks wikipedia.  And he was also the youngest player ever @ age 36 to get into the hall of fame.

I heard Sandy and Johnny Bench like to find strangers in the alps.

The funny part is that Paul Simon used the name because it fit better. His favorite player was Mickey Mantle.

no love for Moe Berg?

//Koufax has 6 great seasons, 6 crappy ones
///game he didn't play because it was Yom Kippur? just stayed in his hotel room and watched on TV

I had no idea he was still alive or Jewish. That's my 'now you know' moment for the day. My last one was watching bowling (for some reason) and TO apparently owns a bowling team called the Dallas Strikers.

"How do you feel about being briefly mentioned in a movie 20 years ago?"

What the fark kind of question is that? I'm starting to feel like every journalist is a Goddamn moron.

You sir have hit a home run with this comment.
+1 with a *golf clap*.

Good for Koufax for not caring and good for you for pointing out that TBL is a second rate film and third rate Cohen Bros.

You get a moment w/ Sandy Koufax and waste it on asking about a stupid movie? Well played.

An icon to his race - by being able to hit a ball with a stick. Jews must not be very discerning who they hold in high esteem.

it is funny you say that...since I have a story relating to that....short version.... Wife's cousin brings his long lost old grandma to thanksgiving.... We get into some conversation that causes her to say "the Jews are all psychic". We all played it like it was a joke, but she kept going on about how her dad told her about it... And we just all tried to move the conversation somewhere else after that.

He's always willing to chat with the fans; that's one of the reasons why he's so well-loved.
