Former Red's reliever Pedro Borbon passed away yesterday....

In what great comedy is Borbon mentioned in? Double bonus if you can name the other major leaguer mentioned...


Hint/clue...the movie is over 30 years old now

I bet Stinky Pete knows...

You kill me, Chris. Unfortunately, I am a paradox of trivial knowledge. When you expect I know something, we may as wwell be discussing chemical equations. But I will come out of no where and dazzle you with the most random tinyest minutiae when you don't think anyone knows.
Crap.
I am unable to think of it now. But it's the sort of thing that you will tell me the answer and, "Ahhhh... Shit! I knew that!"
Piss.

My favorite part is "would you like something to read? Do you have anything light? how about this leaflet on Jewish Sports Legends" gets me every time.

Definitely a classic! One of the few movies I don't mind watching more than once. It's also one of the few that I own, and I've probably watched it a dozen times, though I don't remember the Pedro Borbon reference. Guess I'll have to watch it again...
