Remember those Drivers Ed movies? Here's one on YouTube if you don't. Serious splatterpunk. And you gotta love the hardcore narrator and his rude cracks about artificial limbs! Check out the old Macs as well. The 16 mm flick we watched "back in the day" was from 1964--no computers in that one. And there's something about the clicking of projector sprockets and the rolling film reels that added to the experience. The Dolby/THX generation has no idea. Dude, that was authentic.
Speaking of road death, the MMIX San Francisco Giants just made the math easier last night. We've played 10 road games and won 2, and even a math teacher can tell you that's a .200 win percentage. The "beat 'em with pitching" model only works if you get a good start, and poor Sanchez was all over the place, walking six. The Cubs are a tough lineup even though they aren't playing up to expectations these days. They are vulnerable if you can score some runs. Thank goodness we had some youth at the top of the lineup, Mississippi Fred got a rally going with a walk and Pablito had two hits, but our VSC crowd were the walking dead. Señor Slow got rewarded for hitting a double play ball--he can pad his RBI stats for his free agency next year. Gomer is just about unmentionable. And that RF Guy needs a rest. Give Schierholtz the next few starts, eh?
