Predator(s)

predator alien.jpgI didn’t think it was possible to make a better Predator film than the first, but then I saw the trailer for the latest incarnation and I got that same tingly feeling I get from watching that Smoltz-Morris World Series match-up from 1991 — a game that has a strong argument to be labeled the greatest post-season baseball game ever played.

Like Chris Hansen is the greatest on-air predator-catching person in the history of investigative television…

And Manny Ramirez is the most prolific ballplayer with Predator roots (he’s only 2/3 human) as I pointed out nearly a year ago today…

Sure.  I’ve got Predators on the mind.  But I know I’m not alone. 

And though this post doesn’t have much to do with politics (we’re getting health care I heard) nor baseball save the Manny reference, it is important that I prove to you that I am not alone, by showing you an even better version of “American Gothic” than the original “American Gothic”:

Exactly.

So don’t hate me, ‘cuz I’m right.

Peace,

Jeff,
What about the Smoltz Morris World Series in 1991? BTW, you transposed the letters on Smoltz. A great matchup that was.

Fixed :-)

Looks like it will be a sweet flick. Good to see a movie that features Billy ‘Downtown’ Anderson from ‘Major League: Back to the Minors”.

Mike, you have an excellent memory. Never saw that sequel…the second one alone was pretty hard for me to watch. Can’t catch lightning in a bottle TWICE!

We’re getting health care? Oh, yeah. I seem to remember there was a bill passed the other night. Talk about some interesting matchups in Congress.
