Ahhh, The Princess Bride. Somehow it never gets old. And if you can believe it, it was almost 38 years ago, on 26 March 1973, André Roussimoff made his WWF debut as a "face", defeating Buddy Wolfe in New York's Madison Square Garden. André branched out into acting in the 1970s and 1980s, making his acting debut playing a Sasquatch on the 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man. Towards the end of his career, André also starred in several movies. He had an uncredited appearance in the 1984 film — Conan the Destroyer, as Dagoth, the resurrected horned giant god who is killed by Conan (Arnold Schwarzenegger). But he appeared most notably as Fezzik (his favorite role) in the 1987 film The Princess Bride. Both the film and Andre's performance have retained a devoted following both male and female alike. André the Giant had undergone major back surgery prior to filming, and despite his great size, could not support the weight of the much lighter Cary Elwes or Robin Wright for a scene at the end of the film. For the wrestling scene, when Elwes was pretending to hang on André's back, he was actually walking on a series of ramps below the camera during close-ups. For the wide shots, a stunt double took the place of André; on close examination, it is apparent that the double is much smaller than André. Robin Wright had to be attached to wires in the scene where Buttercup jumps from the castle window into Fezzik's arms because he couldn't support her himself.
Why do I bring all this up? Oh, just a little something Jake sent in kind of jarred my memory...
This is tough to watch, but don't worry there's a happy ending: Canyon Crest K9 Training Center owner, Ron Pace, saves the life of a boxer with CPR during a regular training session. During the session, the dog suddenly collapsed and stopped breathing. Ron immediately applied CPR. Within a few minutes, the dog regained consciousness. Once the dog was resuscitated, the owner took him to the vet. And yes, I'd have been a sobbing, blithering idiot, too.
If I were to say the phrase famous sports mistresses, who would come to mind? Maybe Jenn Sterger -- who spent $11,000 on her tits, by the way -- or maybe Rebecca Loos (who was banging David Beckham), yes? All pretty high rate pieces of ass, right? Worth the risk of all the tabloid publity, right? Yeah, wait until you get to number fifteen and you'll be like what the fuck. Maybe she's a good cook?
Baseball Hall of Fame ......Yes. Pilot Hall of Fame.....Eh, not so much. Greg

THANKS, You Yanks, for 'being there'.......Back then. Stu
After arriving in San Diego this past weekend, the folks at Bullz-Eye had the chance to drive the all new 2011 Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet and luckily, the weather was just about perfect. Nissan is coming off a 2010 where they saw market share increase .04% and overall sales jump 18%. Obviously the company wants to keep the momentum going into 2011. And just FYI: Nissan sales were up a whopping 31% in February 2011.
P.S. Here are more Mardi Gras pictures.
