Does anyone else see AA as a bitter old man trying to return soup at a deli? :-b


You forgot to add after he finished it. He's probably the guy who eats all of something and then says how bad it was. :-D

Does anyone else see Mookie as a (edited by mod) man with a tiny (edited by mod) and some possible latent (edited by mod)?

Honestly, I just don't see the appeal of the movie. Maybe it's because I teach literature, but the whole story seems so trite and obvious. I've seen it a few times, too, so it's not like I didn't give it a chance. But, c'mon! It's a chick flick, really. It's just about baseball so you all love it. It's terrible.

Oh, and Mookie - sorry about the Lance Armstrong reference above. If I went over the line, let me know. For the record, I have no idea about Mookie's (edited by Mod).

Uhhh.............If this was a joke by AA, it's quite funny. :-b

If a mod really did edit it, then maybe AA is having a rough year at school. :-o Still moving after the school year AA? Lol. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Does anyone else see Mookie as a a cross between Alex Trebek and Motorcycle Boy in Rumblefish man? with a tiny bit of make up and some possible latent martial arts ability couldn't he be the next Bruce Lee?

I edited out of modesty.
