So last week we made a bet about the number of people to show up to Mayor Marx’s dedication of the Madonna Inn Bike Path on Friday. Jeff was positive that no more than 15 people would show up, so Jeremy and Brett took the over. This morning, we decided to give her office a call to find out the specifics, and Jeff wasn’t even close. Our source said that after some people left, she took a head count of over 40 people at the event. This means that come March Madness, Jeff will have to pay up on his losses and buy a pitcher of beer and food for each Jeremy and Brett the Intern at Firestone’s. That poor bastard.
Over the weekend, Charlie Sheen had a slew of ex-major league ballplayers, plus current Giants closer Brian Wilson, over to his pad to screen his old movie “Major League”. Now apparently this was a booze and drug-free event, allegedly, but it sounds like a kickass time, if not a terrible career move for these players. The whole situation got us pining for ’89 when Jeff and Jeremy were watching Major League at theaters and Brett the Intern was being born.
We got a little excited and a little nervous for Major League 4 which is apparently in the works. The movie is going to be centered around Wild Thing, if Sheen gets paid enough, and would hopefully be better than the last one. What do you think? Anyone out there excited for the franchise to continue?
Templeton’s very own PK is on Rolling Stone’s list of the 16 top unsigned bands in America. This is a ridiculously awesome feat in itself, but it’s possible that it could get a whole lot better. There is a voting system set up online (which I have embedded in the post above) for people to vote for their favorite of the 16 bands. The winner will get a record deal with Atlantic Records, a spot at Bonaroo, and the privilege the first unsigned band to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. Please vote 5 stars for PK and get these SLO County natives this huge honor!
Jeff was talking about his latest addiction that has been keeping him up until 4 am every night over the weekend, ruining his sleep schedule: it was the phenomenon of Angry Birds. Once we got on the subject, we did a little research and realized that the game is infiltrating every possible platform from console video games to movies to even cakes! Yes cakes. Watch in envy as this kid uses his playable Angry Birds birthday cake.
