Posted by TopOfTheThread on July 10, 2010

If you haven’t seen Goodfellas at least 5 times, please do not watch this video — for real Goodfellas fans only!

From http://www.script-o-rama.com/movie_scripts/g/goodfellas-script-transcript.html
Funny. You're really funny.
What do you mean?
It's funny, you know.
It's a good story.
You're a funny guy.
You mean the way I talk? What?
It's just, you know. You're just funny.
You know, the way you tell the story.
Funny how? What's funny about it?
You got it all wrong.
He's a big boy. He knows
what he said. Funny, how?
Just, you know. You're funny.
Let me understand this.
Maybe I'm a little fucked up.
But I'm funny how? Funny
like a clown? I amuse you?
I'm here to fucking amuse you?
What do you mean, funny?
How am I funny?
You know, how you tell a story.
I don't know. You said it.
You said I'm funny.
How am I funny? What the
fuck is so funny about me?
Tell me what's funny.
Get the fuck out of here, Tommy.
Motherfucker! I almost had him.
You stuttering prick, you.
Frankie, was he shaking?
I wonder about you sometimes, Henry.
You may fold under questioning.

Lebron James. His ego? Being mislead by Team James?

Posted by TopOfTheThread on July 8, 2010

Lebron – you need to surround yourself with different people. Who is guiding you?

This move to ask for an hour on ESPN to announce your decision, shows you in bad light.Lebron James Big Head ego

Don’t pretend it’s for charity. (Yes, we all know the advertising proceeds will go to The Boys And Girls Clubs.That’s nice. You can write a check to the charity for more than they will make tonight.)

Please don’t kid yourself. We all know it’s all about you –  Lebron. It doesn’t sit well with people.

This is not helping your brand. It’s simply showing your ego and how “Team James” is misguiding you. A simple press conference would have been appropriate.

People rise and fall quickly. This is not what Michael Jordan would have done it.  Perhaps you should speak with MJ?

Are you starting to believe you really are  King James?

Frustration – dealing with morons who believe they are intelligent

Posted by TopOfTheThread on June 29, 2010

Of late I have been forced to deal with a frustrating situation.  I am dealing with people who sincerely believe  they are intelligent but, in reality, are stupid, and cannot even grasp many elementary school concepts.

I know I am no “brain surgeon” but a person of average intelligence.

How do you argue with people when you have to bring the communication down to a 3rd grade level?

I was so frustrated, I went online to see if anyone had a great quote on the subject. Surely someone was quoted as saying “The most dangerous person is one who believes he is intelligent but really has no clue.”

Here’s the most relevant information I could find.

From SecretGeek.com

The problem is the people (like you, for instance) who don’t even begin to suspect that they are stupid. People who insist they’re God’s gift to intellectual discourse. But in reality: as thick as whale blubber.

Again from SecretGeek.com

  1. Forrest Gump: stupid, but he knows it.

  2. Homer Simpson: is actually dumb, but seems to think he’s the cleverest guy alive.

  3. Columbo: is actually smart, but comes across as quite a dope.

  4. Mr Spock: smart, and knows exactly how smart he is.

The people I am dealing with are Homer Simpsons.

Sorry this post is a pure vent but I needed it. Thanks for listening.

Super Bowl: Who dat? And Arrogant NY Giants Fans

Posted by TopOfTheThread on February 7, 2010

As a  NY Jets fan we have had our ups and downs — mostly downs! We are used to the Giants being the “Pride of NY Football”.

This year we (the Jets) had a run and made it to the AFC Championship game.  Believe it or not, we were one game away from playing in The Super Bowl.  It was fun while it lasted.  We had no illusions of grandeur. We knew the Colts were theWho dat arrogant giants fans better team.

Once the  Jets were out of it, I really did not care who won The Super Bowl.  I just hoped for a good game that was worth watching. Colts win? So?  Saints win? So?

The concept of rooting for teams in “Sports” is interesting. Why do we root for one team or another, when it’s not “our” team?

I have nothing at stake in this game. No bets. No boxes. No ties to either team.

…. I think back to the week before the AFC Championship.  A Giants-fan, season ticket holder, buddy of mine says “it doesn’t matter who wins the AFC Championship, there are no good teams in the AFC anyway.  The team coming out of the NFC will destroy the AFC team in The Super Bowl….”

Wow. What a case of sour grapes!  Poor baby. The Giants didn’t make the playoffs so put down the AFC and the Jets. Poor baby.

* News Flash *  NY Giants Fans — The NY Jets are the best football team in New York. And they’re an AFC team!

Now I know who to root for!  I am passionately rooting for the AFC and the Indianapolis Colts!

Go Colts!

The top 3 lies of all time – the updated list

Posted by TopOfTheThread on February 22, 2009

We used to joke around that 3 of the great lies of all time were

  1. The check is in the mail
  2. You can’t get pregnant the first time
  3. It’s not you. It’s me.

Recently there seems to be a need to update this list. Here are a few updated examples

  1. Read my lips, no new taxes <George Bush>
  2. I did not have sex with that woman <Bill Clinton referring to Monica Lewinsky>
  3. I did not take steroids or any performance enhancing drugs <Alex Rodriguez, he later recanted>.(Not to stick up for him for his ethics and motives, but it’s kind of interesting how Jose Canseco has NOT turned out to be as big a liar as we thought… right?)

The check is in the mail. I suppose we can keep that one on the list for Bernie Madoff.

* * * * * * * * * ** * * * ** * * * *

Who can we trust these days?  It has become a sad environment, not just because of the financial problems,  political polarity, etc…  but because of the warranted distrust in the world.  Here is a song that has come to mind. It is not an exact fit  (actually it’s a stretch) , but today, where are all our leaders? Who can we trust? Our athletic heroes?
