More About Rocky 

David from Sports And Bremertonians was good enough to email me a link to this Bill Simmons article comparing and contrasting the first four "Rocky" flicks. Simmons pretty much nailed it; I would choose "Rocky IV" as well.

There is a central character missing from Wednesday's "Rocky"/baseball comparison, Rocky's ever-discouraging wife, Adrian.

Typical Randall (an acquaintance of Pete's and mine) statements:
"The Cubs can't do it. They have X, Y, and Z flaws."
"I knew X, Y, and Z would come through! I just knew it!"

Playing on that slowpitch team with Randall's co-workers remains the worst athletic experience of my life, but that's another story.
