Dan O\'Halloran

Dan O’Halloran wears No. 13 as a reminder of the night he defied death.

Upon visiting ESPN.com a few minutes ago, I was greeted by a quite different picture, but with the above stirring caption beneath it.

Read the following article, written by ESPN.com’s Scott Burnside, in one of two ways.  The first is an inspiring story of a man persevering and earning a second chance at life.  The second is an account of the above man, Milltown’s own, who apparently has the divine ability to cheat death.

Just concentrate really hard and imagine Dan-O as an apparently immortal hockey referee.

Kim Christie

Notice above a nice picture of an attractive girl. This girl is a friend of mine, a beautiful singer, and an all-around nice person. However, for all the things she has going for her, the one thing she doesn’t have is glam shot originality.

The Miley Cyrus pregnancy rumors might be getting fired up again after this home footage of the Disney star was released.  It’s unclear exactly what she is talking about but I assume she has to give up her Hannah Montana alter ego because of a bun in the oven.  Maybe Martha Brockenbrough was right.

This is clearly a joke and I adore Miley and everything she does.  But this clip from the show was just too good to pass up.

At first glance, nothing out of the ordinary in celebrity gossip news today. Amy Winehouse can’t afford cab fare, Kid Rock is cooking at a local Waffle House, and Courtney Love is out of her mind.

But wait… what was that last one? It seems that Courtney Love is accusing someone of stealing money from the trust fund Kurt Cobain left for their daughter, Francis Bean. And she says that person used the money, as well as Cobain’s social security number, to purchase a $3.2 million home in our own New Brunswick, N.J.!

Carlos Ray “Chuck” Norris is 68 today, and I thought it would be fitting to honor the man by listing some hilarious facts about his life.  This seems like the cool thing to do these days, so hopefully I’m jumping on the bandwagon at the right time.

God I hate her face. I’m sure none of you know who the hell she is. I had no idea of her worthless existence until my MSN homepage had a link for an article entitled ‘Is Miley Cyrus the Next Britney Spears?‘ I just got finished reading this trash and I couldn’t sit by idly. This is my first crack at pulling a FireJoeMorgan like post, a feat that a few of my fellow writers have flourished at. I left some parts of her article out that didn’t seem necessary but you’ll read what’s needed. Anyway this jerk jumps to more conclusions and makes more ridiculous assumptions about a teenage girl than a grown woman should be making. And as a big Miley/Hannah fan, I didn’t appreciate it.

Zac Efron: October 18, 1987

Me: October 19, 1987

I can only imagine that if I had been delivered one day earlier, I would be that dreamy. I can only imagine.

sports betting

I’m not a gambling man, at least not a large scale. I’ll get together with the guys once in a while and play a good game of poker in a smoke-filled room, hopefully wearing a pork pie hat (I thought “porkpie” was one word in the case of hats, but spell check just flagged it – it flagged “spellcheck,” too; maybe they should be hyphenated). However, I’ve never gotten into the big bucks, the world of sports betting. A lot of my friends do it, and they tend to stick to the common targets, the “big four” sports (though I don’t know one that bets on hockey). But here are some things I didn’t know anybody bet on, and maybe some that you shouldn’t be able to bet on. (Note – all odds and lines taken from Bodog)

Roy Scheider

I am deeply saddened to report that Roy Scheider passed away today at the age of 75. Best known for his role as Police Chief Martin Brody in the classic film JAWS, Scheider died due to complications from multiple Myeloma which is a cancer of the blood cells.

I know that many people out there barely know of Roy’s existance because honestly he didn’t have that many classic roles under his belt. But all I have to say to that is “hey, he was the police chief in JAWS.” In my opinion, JAWS is one of the best films ever made. The strongest element of the film is the acting. Roy played the everyman and to his credit, he put us right there in the water with that shark every step of the way. He made it real.

On the set, the main characters of the film (Roy Scheider, Robert Shaw, and Richard Dreyfuss) were always known as the “Big 3.” Today that number drops to 1 with the loss of Robert Shaw in 1978 and of Roy today. I’m already warming up my DVD player to watch JAWS today because it just feels right. 

In closing, I first want to leave everyone with a bit of trivia. Roy Scheider actually improvised on the set of JAWS the famous movie line “You’re gonna need a bigger boat.” It is not only still a pop culture reference that many use in one way or the other, but it is also a line that makes the film so much better.

And this one’s for you Roy: Show me the way to go home. I’m tired and I want to go to bed. I had a little drink about an hour ago, and it’s gone right to my head. Wherever I may roam, on land, or sea or foam, you will always hear me singing this song, show me the way to go home…   

I hope you find your way home Chief.

It wasn’t too long ago that Drake Bell was ruling to teen world but ever since the emergence of High School Musical, Hannah Montana, and the Jonas Brothers it’s like the world has forgotten about Drake.  His hit show on Nickelodeon was big with little kids and he too also was putting out his own music.  He was dating Vanessa Hudgens and she even sent him a naked picture of herself.  Lucky guy.  But we’ve all seen them haven’t we?  Anyway Drake, just wanted to let you know that I still think you’re a pretty cool guy.  I’ve been listening to a couple of your songs a lot lately, they are pretty catchy.  “Makes Me Happy” and “I Found A Way,” both are very enjoyable.  Personally I don’t really care what happened to Josh Peck, but you, I want you to make a comeback.
