I was starting to think it was in his contract, and it's probably why he was so natural in Moneyball.. Half that movie he was either dipping, drinking coffee or mowing through a powebar.

McShay is a child still trying to tape his Logan Thomas poster back together, but I caught John McClain on the Zone last week. He's pretty inside Houston, not a troll, and listed a few rational reasons that they would take Bortles. I believe one of them was the Texan's qb coach being his qb coach in...

Well, Comcast agrees with you. Not that I attach any merit to their ratings, but BL gets 2 stars-a ranking that puts it on par with great works like American Reunion.
I thought it was one of the most unique and well-cast comedies of all time, even before I'd seen it unedited....

It's unlike anything I've ever seen. The attention to detail, long unbroken shots, cool score in lieu of sound and gas explosions that don't occur in space, and Bullock in her space undies.
The only drawback (for me) was Clooney basically playing Danny Ocean in a space suit. I might've liked it m...

Seems petty from a guy that embraces "Zen Master" as his nickname. I mean, you can't work on 7'1 325, and I don't think he was ever going to have much touch on free throws with those bear paws. I guess Phil could've just benched him, right?
Anyway, I can't wait for Shaq's shaky-iphone bar video c...

He had a great feel for screens. Backs never had to wait on a fluttering duck, it was drilled in their numbers and they could turn downfield.
