The best heckle I ever heard of was to Kirk Douglas's other son - Zeppo Douglas. He was a drunk and a bit of a druggie and a bit of a lost soul with personal worth issues. So naturally he turned to stand-up. His act was dying in some Hollywood club and in desperation he said: "You know who I am, I'm Kirk Douglas's son," and someone in the audience stood up and shouted, "No, I'm Kirk Douglas's son," and then another stood up: "No, I'm Kirk Douglas's son," and the whole audience was on its feet.
1 - Melbourne has won 12 premierships (1900, 1926, 1939, 1940, 1941, 1948, 1955, 1956, 1957, 1959, 1960 and 1964)
The 1941 Grand Final showcased one of the gutsiest triumphs in the long and decorated history of the Melbourne Football Club. The Demons were severely depleted - they were missing about 12 players due to war service and injury - and faced a full strength Essendon, and were on the end of an astonishingly lopsided free kick count, which favoured the Bombers 52-20. But the Bombers posed no threat to the Demons, who put the premiership beyond doubt with an 11-goal to two first half. As Smith simply stated: "We won the premiership easily."
As Smith really wanted to state: "Suck on that, maggot."
dazzling socialite, wowed Melbourne, blonde bombshell, serious competition, show stopper
I mean, really.
Not that common sense is entirely absent from the event. Hats off - exquisitely embellished hats, of course - to Felicity Harley and Erin Maxwell:
"You can either buy into the Brownlow and get someone to dress you and say yes to doing lots of media things, or you can go there and just wear the easiest dress you can find," Ms Harley said."
"You're not forced into the spotlight," Ms Maxwell said. "You don't have to get a free dress and you don't have to put pressure on yourself to promote a designer."
But what do I know?
While I thought Lauren Phillips looked fantastic - especially when she hopped into Lez Ellis on the blue carpet - my best went to almost everyone else's worst, Lucy Cornes. Her refusal to go uber-formal echoes the sentiments of Felicity Harley and Erin Maxwell. Will it set a trend for next year's Gownlow?
A flute with no holes is not a flute—and a sports world with no Caddyshack, well that seems unthinkable. Three decades after the golf classic's release, SI catches up with the cast and crew.
IT'S IN THE HOLE! Bill Murray nails the money shot:
Let me tell you a story. The first time I went to Augusta, I was skulking around with a hat pulled way down on my head, trying to be invisible. And I ended up right behind Jack Nicklaus and his son, who was caddying for him. They were standing on the 18th tee. And his son spots me and points at me. And I thought it was because they saw this strange guy with his hat pulled down. I thought they were going to call security. And just as I was about to run, the son says to his dad, in Carl's voice, "I think it's about a five-iron." And I thought, Holy cow, that's my joke!
Sunday night, lying awake flipping around the radio, I landed on the 927 Sport overnight wrap. Don't know who the announcer was. Let's call him Got The Job Done, since that was what he repeated over and over again. "Chelsea got the job done against West Ham 3-1." "The Dragons got the job done against Manly 28-0." "Melbourne got the job done against Brisbane 3-0". Anyway, Got changed to Get when he moved on to next weekend in the NRL:
"The Canberra Raiders will play the rampaging Roosters, pardon the pun."
Controversial Brisbane Lions full forward Brendan Fevola is facing the sack after his club received a complaint from a member of the public about "improper conduct" at an AFL family day on the weekend.
The Age believes Fevola exposed himself to a woman at the family day.
