• Return to kicking my own ass by 2018
She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.
And you can quote me as saying I was mis-quoted. Groucho Marx

Mongo no go...
We're going to let DS watch it for the first time, tonight. He's almost 12. There are a lot of comic greats in that film who are no longer with us...Alex, Madeliine, Cleavon, Harvey, Slim, Dom. When Mel Brooks and Gene Wilder die I expect I will be a wreck.
and this, also. I watched this kick as a kid and remember vividly Alex, prior to the play, laughing his ass off that the Saints were attempting a 63 yard field goal. RIP, #71.
