Screen Scenes: A Bronx Tale – Door Test

You gotta do what your heart tells you to do. Let me tell you somethin’ right now. You’re only allowed three great women in your lifetime. They come along like the great fighters, every ten years. Rocky Marciano. Sugar Ray Robinson. Joe Louis. Sometimes you get ’em all at once. Me? I had my three when I was 16. That happens. What are you gonna do? That’s the way it goes, you know? Tell you right now. See this girl? Maybe this girl, she put wind in your sails. Maybe she’s your first great one. … Alright, listen to me. You pull up right where she lives, right? Before you get outta the car, you lock both doors. Then, get outta the car, you walk over to her. You bring her over to the car. Dig out the key, put it in the lock and open the door for her. Then you let her get in. Then you close the door. Then you walk around the back of the car and look through the rear window. If she doesn’t reach over and lift up that button so that you can get in: dump her. … Listen to me, kid. If she doesn’t reach over and lift up that button so that you can get in, that means she’s a selfish broad and all you’re seeing is the tip of the iceberg. You dump her and you dump her fast.

This Dog Has Bite

For those who follow the NFL, you know that when you least expect it, expect it. Week 3 was a perfect indication of that. The reason that this happens EVERY YEAR is that the NFL has few dominant teams and a lot of weak and mediocre teams, which is why many use the word “parity” when talking about the NFL. That being said, Week 5 is time for that to showcase itself once again. There is one winless NFL team left; the Arizona Cardinals. They are on the road this week at San Francisco, who has taken a huge fall from pre-season grace with the loss of QB Jimmy Garappolo. The Niners looked good against San Diego last week, but I think that it was more of a product of the Chargers’ defense being in the infirmary. Arizona is showing signs of life….too bad the ownership was brain dead when they decided that Sam Bradford could stand upright if they stacked $20 million next to him. Not bad wages for 2+ games. At least they pointed towards the future with Josh Rosen in a winnable games versus the Bears. He has looked very poised in his 2 games and that is helping open up the running game. With the inability for the opposing defense to stack the box and shut down David Johnson, the offense can move the ball. The defense is very good and needs to see less plays. Controlling the clock on the offensive side of the ball is the key to that. I expect that to happen this week and Arizona will extend their 6 game winning streak versus the Niners…yep, the Cardinals have won 6 straight in this series.

I am playing the Cardinals straight up as a Moneyline winner at +170. If you can’t get that bet or are scared, play Arizona +4.

Good luck on your wagers!

1.Deaths 240x172 - Declicked: Celebrity Deaths You Probably Didn’t Hear About

Declicked: Celebrity Deaths You Probably Didn’t Hear About

“Declicked” is a series that suffers through click-bait with misleading cover stories and copies everything onto one page.

There are some celebrities who are such big superstars it would be impossible not to hear about it if they died. But, there are others who were in our favorite tv shows and movies, and then just seemed to disappear. Some celebrities we grew up watching, and others who have been on the small and the big screen more recently, have passed away without anyone really finding out about what happened. For some reason, their deaths just didn’t make the headlines. There are stars who battled their own inner demons, or drug and alcohol addiction, which ultimately led to their deaths. While there are others who have been cut down in their prime as the result of freak accidents at their home or horrific car crashes which led to injuries so severe that no one could have survived them. Others have passed on because they committed suicide when life just seemed too much to bear, while some have lost battles with rare illnesses. There are even some celebrities whose deaths remain a total mystery, still to be solved. While many celebrities and icons are mourned by the whole world, for others, their passing has been a more private affair, with only friends, family and loved ones in the know. Read on to find out the surprising deaths of stars you may not have realized were no longer with us.

Sadly, despite medical treatment, he passed away as a result of a heart attack at the age of 54.

Gleason died in hospital at the age of 67 as a result of lung conditions. It is thought the types of diseases he suffered from were brought on as a result of working with asbestos on construction sites with his father before he became an actor.

David Graf – Heart Attack

David Graf’s family had a history of heart disease, but no one could have known he would suffer from a heart attack during a family wedding, aged 50. Best known for playing Sgt. Eugene Tackleberry in the Police Academy movies, he probably had looked at all sorts of sensible plans for his real estate and his last will and testament because both his father and his grandfather had passed away as the result of heart attacks when they were 51.

But, sadly she passed away from Myocarditis, one of those types of diseases which doesn’t care how young or old you are! She was just 39.

He died after falling into a coma at his Bel Air real estate. He was 83 at the time of his death and had already undergone medical treatment for obstructive pulmonary disease caused by smoking.

Unfortunately, he suffered from drug and alcohol addiction as well as needing medical treatment for depression. He died at home in Bel Air at the age of 52 after suffering a stroke.

Anita Mui – Cervical Cancer

A renowned singer from Hong Kong, Anita Mui was compared to pop legend Madonna because of the way she performed and as a result of her knack for reinventing herself. But, sadly, she was diagnosed with one of those types of diseases which does not only take the old and frail. Despite medical treatment, Mui lost her battle with cervical cancer, aged 40. Sadly, her family faced battles with the administrators of Mui’s real estate after her death.

Start of the Week – Patrick Mahomes vs. San Francisco 49ers

Is Mahomes now a must start in all fantasy leagues? If you didn’t draft an elite quarterback ahead of him, well, the answer is yes. He has another great matchup this week, as he’ll face a Niners ir?source=bk&t=312land 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=f9ed0bcfdb26f3e1c390db8a4e61c706& cb=1537564523298 - Mike's NFL fantasy reportdefense that has given up five touchdown passes and an average of 22.52 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks after two weeks. Fire him up!

COU709400 - Mike's NFL fantasy report vsBUF - Mike's NFL fantasy report
Kirk Cousins vs. Buffalo Bills

Cousins has opened the season on absolute fire, throwing for six touchdowns in his first two games. He should continue to shine in the stat sheets against the Bills, who have surrendered six touchdown passes and an average of almost 25 fantasy points per game to signal-callers. Consider Cousins a virtual must-start option.

GAR363225 - Mike's NFL fantasy reportvs. KC - Mike's NFL fantasy report
Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Garoppolo has had a disappointing start to the season, but don’t lose hope in the handsome field general. In fact, this week’s matchup against the Chiefs makes him a terrific starting option for owners. Their swiss cheese defense has allowed a combined seven touchdowns and 33.97 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

FIT792915 - Mike's NFL fantasy report vsPIT - Mike's NFL fantasy report
Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Fitzpatrick has been on absolute fire, scoring nine total touchdowns while leading all players in fantasy points after two weeks. While the bubble might burst this week, the matchup against the Steelers is hard to ignore. Only the Chiefs have allowed more fantasy points (31.21 PPG) to opposing field generals this season.

STA134157 - Mike's NFL fantasy report vsNE - Mike's NFL fantasy report
Matthew Stafford vs. New England Patriots

The Patriots made Blake Bortles look like the GOAT last week, allowing 377 yards and four touchdowns in a loss to the Jaguars. While defensive adjustments are certain, I still like Stafford as a No. 1 fantasy quarterback based on the matchup. What’s more, game script projections have Stafford throwing the ball a ton on Sunday night.

Dak Prescott vs. Seattle Seahawks

Prescott and the Cowboys pulled out a nice win against the Giants last week, but the quarterback still had a mere 14.9 fantasy points. He’s also failed to score 15 points in nine of his last 10 games. And while the Legion of Boomir?source=bk&t=312land 20&bm id=default&l=ktl&linkId=323b86d10084898459f955b4d06e0edb& cb=1537564654775 - Mike's NFL fantasy report is now extinct, a road game against the Seahawks is still enough to bench Prescott this weekend.

Derek Carr vs. Miami Dolphins

Carr looked good in last week’s loss to the Broncos, completing 90.6 percent of his passes with a rating of 114.6. Unfortunately, he mustered just 15.52 fantasy points. Next up is a road matchup in Miami. In his last 11 road contests, Carr has just one game with multiple touchdown passes and has scored 16-plus points once.

KEE690598 - Mike's NFL fantasy reportvsBAL - Mike's NFL fantasy report
Case Keenum vs. Baltimore Ravens

Keenum was a major disappointment a week ago, scoring just 14.48 fantasy points despite what looked like a nice matchup on paper against the Raiders. Now he’ll head east to face the Ravens, who have allowed just one quarterback to finish better than 15th in fantasy points over their last nine contests at home. Keep Case benched.

MAR186347 - Mike's NFL fantasy reportvsJAX - Mike's NFL fantasy report
Marcus Mariota vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Mariota missed last week’s game with a bum elbow, and his status for Week 3 remains in question. In the event that he is able to suit up, however, he needs to be far, far from your starting lineup in a matchup against the Jaguars. Their defense has allowed just one top-15 signal-caller performance on their hoome field since 2017.

1924 bears

Chicago Bears – TEST/DEMO Page

The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) North division. The Bears have won nine NFL Championships, including one Super Bowl, and hold the NFL record for the most enshrinees in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the most retired jersey numbers. The Bears have also recorded more victories than any other NFL franchise.[6][7][8]

The franchise was founded in Decatur, Illinois, on September 17, 1920,[1][9] and moved to Chicago in 1921. It is one of only two remaining franchises from the NFL’s founding in 1920, along with the Arizona Cardinals, which was originally also in Chicago. The team played home games at Wrigley Field on Chicago’s North Side through the 1970 season; they now play at Soldier Field on the Near South Side, next to Lake Michigan. The Bears have a long-standing rivalry with the Green Bay Packers.[10]

The team headquarters, Halas Hall, is in the Chicago suburb of Lake Forest, Illinois. The Bears practice at adjoining facilities there during the season. Since 2002, the Bears have held their annual training camp, from late July to mid-August, at Ward Field on the campus of Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, Illinois.[11]

Franchise history
Main article: History of the Chicago Bears
1920–1939: Early Bears
In March of 1920 a man telephoned me … George Chamberlain and he was general superintendent of the A.E. Staley Company … In 1919, [the company’s Fellowship Club] had formed a football team. It had done well against other local teams but Mr. Staley wanted to build it into a team that could compete successfully with the best semi-professional and industrial teams in the country … Mr. Chamberlain asked if I would like to come to Decatur and work for the Staley Company.

— George Halas, in his book Halas by Halas.[9]

The team’s founder George Halas (right) with NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle
Originally named the Decatur Staleys, the club was established by the A. E. Staley food starch company of Decatur, Illinois in 1919 as a company team. This was the typical start for several early professional football franchises. The company hired George Halas and Edward “Dutch” Sternaman in 1920 to run the team. The 1920 Decatur Staleys season[12] was their inaugural regular season completed in the newly formed American Professional Football Association (later renamed the National Football League (NFL) in 1922).

Full control of the team was turned over to Halas and Sternaman in 1921.[13] Official team and league records cite Halas as the founder as he took over the team in 1920 when it became a charter member of the NFL.[14]

The team relocated to Chicago in 1921, where the club was renamed the Chicago Staleys. Under an agreement reached by Halas and Sternaman with Staley, Halas purchased the rights to the club from Staley for US$100.

Job-shamed ‘Cosby Show’ actor exposes addiction to judging

It was called a “feel good” story, but it was all about feeling bad.

A 50-year-old woman was shopping with her 40-year-old wife at a Trader Joe’s in New Jersey. At the checkout counter, they noticed a slightly heavyset cashier with a graying beard. He was ringing up and bagging groceries.

“I said, ‘Wait a minute, that’s the guy from The Cosby Show,” Karma Lawrence would tell the media.

Had this been 30 years ago, the incident would have ended there, and you would not know a thing about it. But because everyone now carries the world in a pocket, Lawrence quickly went online and found photos to confirm her belief that the cashier was indeed Geoffrey Owens, who had a featured role on “The Cosby Show” from 1987 to 1992.

So Lawrence did what so many of us now do, for no reason, and with nothing good to come from it. Without even speaking to him, she snapped Owens’ picture and posted it on the Internet.

You know what happened next. The Daily Mail ran the photo and wrote a story about how Owens, 57, had been spotted working as a cashier, a job that reportedly paid around $11 an hour. And a viral firestorm began.

Now, while the Daily Mail piece had a condescending tone, if you read the actual comments after the article, you see more people saying, “Why is this a big deal,” than you do people making fun of Owens.

But there’s no pathos in that. Instead, the headline became that Owens was being “job shamed” on a massive scale, and way more media outlets ran that story, and next thing you know, Owens was on “Good Morning America”, and CNN, and in People magazine. He said all the right things, that work was work, that there was nothing shameful about going from high-profile acting to low-profile earning-a-living.
