Out of the Blue

Last night I got to see an rerun of a Seinfeld that I heard about years ago, but never managed to see: the "pony remark" episode where Jerry is debating whether to attend a funeral or go to his softball championship. The reason I was particularly interested is that I was told the team they play for was a team that I myself played for: Friends o' Clyde. Sure enough the episode features the team name, jerseys that resemble ours, and even the name of another player who was actually on the team " can't put Bender in left... he stinks!" None of this is a coincidence or a mystery however, as Larry David was on this team himself. This was just before his success with Seinfeld though, so at the time his claim to fame with us was a great catch in right field during a playoff game. And no... while George (Larry) was on the team in real life, Jerry was not.

I got a fresh batch of that Tylenol Cold, and this stuff doesn't expire for 2-1/2 years, so pills I found yesterday that were five years past expiration were actually close to 8 years old. Eeek!

Hey Blue, something's wonky with today's OotB message board layout - - it's so wide it won't fit w/o side scrolling.
That's not a problem with the board, but with the obscenely long link posted by Hump in #7. It only wraps at the question mark, and the remainder is too long so you'll get the horizontal scrollbar.
