Around The Horn

  • The Therapist has the rundown on Katie Couric's interview with runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks:
    One insider also noted that the televised interview would show a side previously unseen by the public: the fact that Wilbanks indeed has eyelids.

    “It’s our job to get these things out,” he said. ‘And nobody can elicit a bilateral display of eyelids better than Katie Couric.”
  • The American Film Institute has released it's list of the top 100 movie quotes of all time. "Caddyshack" slid into number 92 with Carl Spackler's imaginary, flower-chopping, Masters "Cinderella story" valedictory. So he's got that going for him, which is nice. However, "Fletch" makes zero appearances, rendering the entire list a sham. Perhaps the voters were just trying to get a bird's-eye view.
  • My 12-year-old son's baseball team won their league championship recently, cruising to a 15-1 season record. You can read all about it (including my son's single in the title game) at the Miami Herald (free registration required). Mom and Dad bought five of the hard copies.
  • I'm starting to feel sorry for the guy who wrote that new Hillary book. Everybody seems to hate it, conservatives and liberals alike. All sides are fleeing from it like kids at birthday party Michael Jackson just walked into.

    Now even the photographer who took the highly publicized photo of Clinton apparently mouth-kissing a supporter is taking umbrage. Photos taken by that same guy at the same time seem to show that the kiss was not a mouth-kiss and clearly taken out of context by the book's author. I don't know what everyone's getting so huffy about, though. I mean, in light of the liberal defense of the "60 Minutes" National Guard memos, can't we just say that the Clinton-kiss photo, while not technically accurate, points to a "deeper truth"?
And that's how we play "Around the Horn." Thank you, and drive safely.
