I am unilaterally crowning Cliff Lee "The Sultan of Sell High". I don't want to hear it, Pat Burrell!
Until IMDB posted that it was Jack Klugman's birthday last week, I was under the assumption that he had been dead for many years. I had a similar misunderstanding about Carl Weathers. In Weathers's case I suppose the fact that he died in the only three roles I've ever seen him play (Apollo Creed, the soldier in "Predator", and Chubbs Peterson) led to my confusion. In Klugman's case, it's probably because he was old in the 60s.
The NFL Draft was mundane. There was really only one guy the casual fan could get about and things went pretty much according to plan. Nobody traded up for a top-tier player. Nobody slid overly far. At least it was fast.
Who would thought that Jeff Van Gundy would become one of the most colorful characters around basketball. I could see him going completely off the deep end, a la Bill Raftery, in his old age. The thought of watching this alone gives me the motivation to live into my 40s
