“My Favorite…”

“…Motion Picture Sequel That Was BETTER Than The First Motion Picture, Is…”

FRENCH CONNECTION II (1975)

Gene Hackman Won The Best Actor Academy Award for "The French Connection"... but His Performance in "French Connection II" WAS MUCH MUCH BETTER (and Totally Got The Shaft) !!! !!!

Trust Me, Peeps... If You LOVE Hardcore, Gritty, Soul-Searching, A-Ma-Zing ACTING & STORYTELLING... "French Connection II" Will NOT Disappoint You!!!

Sooo… The Red-Sox Are Rollin’ The Dice On… Bobby Valentine?!? Really?!?!?

Well…

…hmm…

…While I Had Said To Someone “$10 Says Bobby V Takes Over BeanTown”…

…It Really Just Feels Strange To Know He Actually IS.

I Honestly DID Enjoy Watching Those 1999 & 2000 New York Mets. An AMAZING Infield, FO FLIPPIN' SHO!

Honestly, I See Him as (potentially) The Red-Sox-Version of Joe Torre.

A Good Guy with A Not-So-Good Track-Record as a Major-League Manager…

…Who’s ONLY Possible Fear Is “Fired Again, eh?!”

What Do They Call It…

…”I’m Playin’ with The House’s Money.”

That’s How I See Bobby V in Boston.

The Question Is…

…Will Boston Take-In Valentine like New York Did with Torre??? ???

The Mustache May Be Phony... BUT He May Not Be. We Shall See, Eh?!!?!

It’s Going To Be An Interesting 2012 Season, that’s Fer Dayum Sure!!!

“…STAR TREK Moment EVER, Is…”

"KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!" --STAR TREK II: The Wrath Of Khan-- (1982)

Since My Humble Little Blog “You Jivin’ Me, Turkey?” Officially Racked-Up Its 1,000Th Reader As Of Yesterday Evening…

…I Decided It Was Time To Make a Couple (minor) Changes.

I Do Hope You Like What I’ve Done With The Place.

Nothing Says “ESTABLISHED” Like a Fresh Paint-Job And YOUR OWN DOMAIN, Eh!?!?!?!???!!

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY, My Peeps!!!

Thank You For Making “You Jivin’ Me, Turkey?” Feel Like He’s Part Of The Family.

TRUST ME, It’s GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!

“My Favorite…”

“… (Retired) Red-Sox Player Who SHOULD BE In The Hall-Of-Fame, Is…”

Bill Buckner's Numbers : 9397 AB, .289 Career-BA, 2715 H, 174 HR, 49 3B, 498 2B, 1,208 RBI, 1077 R,183 SB, 453K, 450 BB!

This Is The ONLY Thing Most Of You Know About Bill Bucker. PERIOD.

 

—Mookie Wilson Hits a Dribbler…

…The Ball Goes Between Buckner’s Legs…

…Mookie Wilson is Safe-At-First…

…Ray Knight Scores From 1B with The Winning Run…

…Game 6…

…1986 World Series.—

That ONE Error... That ONE... All Alone... Made Him Almost a Laughing-Stock When He Reached His Year Of Eligibility For The Hall-Of-Fame.

— Bill Buckner WON A Batting-Title in 1980.

He Was An All-Star.

Buckner Lead His League in Doubles TWICE in 1981 AND 1983.

His Strikeout-Total To Walk-Total (453 Vs 450) is A-MA-ZING By Any Baseball Standards I’ve Ever Heard About OR Read About.

He Finished The Season in The “TOP-5″ for MOST HITS…

…And Did So FIVE TIMES…

…and was in the “TOP-10″ TWO Other Times.

Had THREE 100+RBI Seasons.

But All Most Remember is That One-Single-Individual ERROR.

It’s So Sad…

…Really It Is.

He Made One Mistake that He’ll Never Be Able to Totally Run Away From.

It’s With Him Forever.

They Are Linked.

His MAJOR MISTAKE and HIMSELF are Now ONE-In-The-SAME.

Y’all Should Go Check-Out His Numbers Yourself.

Find Some Quotations From Those He Played With/For/etc.

Bill Buckner Deserved So Much More From His Baseball Life.

He Deserves To Be In The Hall-Of-Fame.

He’ll Just Never Get That Chance.

All Because Of that ONE-Error.

Buckner Played For The Chicago Cubs from 1977 until He Went to Boston in 1984.

It Was His Lucky Glove. So Why Jinx It, Ya know? It WAS The World Series, Peeps!!! In Baseball... When You're "ON"... You GO WITH WHAT'S WORKING!!!
