"Scrappyness, along with a general disregard for my own well-being, made me the man I am today." —Ron Stilanovich

"If you could go back in time and take Nap Lajoie into a room after Rube Waddell K'd him on three pitches and show him a glowing box with a video replay of the at bat, he would call you a demon, slit your throat, tear out his eyes, and generally freak the fuck out. It's a different game, these days." ---Ken Tremendous

Post-game Thread: Giants play like Giants

Just when you thought it was safe to go back on the internet...  BOOM, BITCH! It's Friday night, I'm subbing for Grant, and writing a post-game thread on a Matt Cain performance. That was exactly...

Japanese Rowand even gamier!

AFTER FURTHER REVIEW: The 1st Round Live Blog (Tape Delayed)

A running diary of the NFL Draft from the perspective of a Niners fan.

Attn: Rush Fans

It seems the new movie 'I LOVE YOU, MAN' features McCC's most controversial band prominently, including a scene where the main characters (played by Paul Rudd and Jason Segel) attend a concert, and another where they belt out their own version of 'Limelight'. That track is also on the film's soundtrack, and you can hear it here. Rush is back! Suck it, jponry haters!

Mike Smith: Best Rookie Coach?

I write a weekly column called 'Any Given Friday' on SB Nation sister site Niners Nation previewing all the weekend's games. This week, the main topic is the argument over who is the best rookie head coach in the NFL this year. Since I used a link from here for the piece (and since Mike Smith is currently running away with the vote), I thought I'd throw up a link. With the Niners being (perennial) also-rans, I've kind of adopted the Falcons as my second team due to impressive work by Smith, Ryan, and Turner in turning the team around this year. Good luck on Sunday vs. the Vikes!

OT: 'Synecdoche, New York'

WARNING: SITE PIMPAGE AHEAD I don't know how many Charlie Kaufman fans there are out there, but I consider myself one (and I think the restraining orders attest to that). His directorial debut, the metaphortastic 'Synecdoche, New York', opened yesterday in LA, and I was there bright and early with all the other film geeks to catch it. Short story: Mind blown. For the long story, check out the review on my infant blog.

Open Gameday Thread, 9/28

If Lincecum pitches 25 scoreless innings today, his ERA will be a full run below Brandon Webb's. Bochy has a goal! All the Giants will have to do is not score for 25 innings. As long as Lincecum...

OT: Indiana Jones & The City of Gods

It's long been reported that Frank Darabont ('SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION', 'THE GREEN MILE') wrote a great draft for the 4th installment of the Indiana Jones franchise which was approved by both Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford, but was later rejected by George Lucas, who wanted to take the movie in a more cuddly, family-friendly direction (shock!). Well, that script -- titled 'INDIANA JONES & THE CITY OF GODS' -- is now available on the internet, so I thought I'd provide a link in case anyone is interested in downloading it before it's removed (The site is in French, but if you hit the link under the title which says "Telecharger ce fichier" it will download). If you're a fan of the movies, this is a really amazing read. But I'd advise you to only read it if you've already seen 'INDIANA JONES & THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL'. The storyline of this script is the same as the film, but there were several important -- and if you ask me, unfortunate -- changes made from this draft. I would describe and/or critique the changes, but it's already been done as well as I could do it here.

OT: The video George Lucas doesn't want you to see -- a "highlight" reel of 1978's "Star Wars Holiday Special", starring Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Jefferson Starship, and... Bea Freaking Arthur!
