Textbook Says Donkeys Are Better Than Housewives
"A donkey is like a housewife. It has to toil all day and, like her, may even
have to give up food and water. In fact, the donkey is a shade better, for
while the housewife may sometimes complain and walk off to her parents' home,
you'll never catch the donkey being disloyal to his master."

This week's movies (1100 screens):
Girlz - no reviews available
- Mo'Nique and Eric Roberts - together at last!
This week's movies (one trillion screens, or at least 3100):
The Benchwarmers - see below
- This is the baseball film with David Spade and Rob Schneider, so don't
expect lots of positive reviews, because they are not exactly the darlings of
the arthouse set ... or, for that matter, any other set I can think of.
- One RT commenter wrote: "In my medium-sized American city, all critics
screenings for 'Benchwarmers' were cancelled at the last minute so there won't
be any opening-day reviews."
- One site wrote: "Jon Heder has joined the axis of evil."
This week's movies (1700 screens):
Lucky Number Slevin - 69% positive reviews
- The previews look terrific. It seems to be a Guy Ritchie crime movie with
- Hollywood Reporter said, "No matter how badly the movie cons you, you must
admit that the film is stylish as hell with sharp dialogue, a tongue-in-cheek
plot and visual and editing razzle-dazzle."
This week's movies (2800 screens):
Take the Lead - 73% positive reviews.
- Critics have been impressed by the Banderas dance movie, and by the
perfect casting of Banderas himself, although they have acknowledged it to be
a formulaic and schmaltzy genre flick. Rolling Stone summed it up, "The movie
shucks its corn straight from the cob. But it's no less engaging for that,
thanks to the enthusiasm of the young cast and the fusion of classic dance
with hip-hop moves."
The Weekend Warrior makes his predictions for the upcoming weekend.
- There are four more new releases this week.
- Warrior feels that Take the Lead (Banderas) and The Benchwarmers
(Spade-Schneider-Heder) will open in the fifteen million range, with the other
two new releases falling by the wayside.

with the changes in the SAT," says Robert Schaeffer, spokesman for FairTest, a
non-profit organization that says tests are overused.

More baseball salaries:
Phil Nevin makes ten million per year. He is 35. In the
past four years, he has averaged 16 HR, 65 RBI.
- Nevin has managed to stay in the line-up during only
one of the past four years, but if he finds his stroke and stays healthy, he's
going to love playing in Texas. In 2001, he had an OPS of nearly 1000 playing
in a pitchers' park, and knocked in 126 while hitting in a mediocre line-up in
that tough park. If he returns to that form in Arlington, in the current
Rangers' line-up, he could knock in 160 ... which is of course why the Rangers
are willing to gamble on him.
The 2006 salaries for the 409 Major League Baseball players
earning $1 Million or more.
- The Yankees pay $100 million just to their top five
guys, and another sixty million to the next five!
- Magglio Ordonez makes $16 million per year, and over
the last two years he has averaged nine homers and 42 ribbies. (Of course, he
averaged about 120 RBI for the previous five years.)

Dallas to play in Philadelphia on Christmas Day
- Will T.O. receive the spirit of goodwill toward men?
Not in Philly. The legend is that the Philly crowds boo the losing kids in
Easter Egg Rolls.
- Note this interview with my dad,
Danny "Suits" Sparrow, who claimed to be the world's
greatest baseball player. "Scoop: So dad, if
you were so good, how come you never hit more than 47 homers in a season?"
"Danny: Hell, you gotta remember that I only had 48 at-bats that year playing
for the Philadelphia Cheesesteaks. In my other trips to the plate, I had 665
intentional walks and a ground-rule double. And the home fans in Philly booed
me for ten minutes when I hit the double."

cheerleader moves with the split on the floor before taking on Barry Scott and
Travis Knight in the living room."
- She must be the first porn star to change her real
name to a LESS sexual one. Sources report that her real name is Courtney Cox.
Here is a site with lots
of pics of her as a cheerleader and .. um ... elsewhere. The threads also
include posts by ol' Courtney herself.
