RIP Peter Magowan who saved the SF Giants from going to Florida. Thank you Mr Magowan.  76 is too young for an otherwise healthy and good-natured soul. Fuck fucking cancer. 

Good man. May he rest in peace. 

Florida baseball is a joke. I think they're all just spoiled by Spring Training. Nobody goes to Rays or Marlins games. It's really pathetic. The Rays sell out on opening day every year with pretend fans who go for the atmosphere. Then they have about 5,000 people in the seats the next day, with official attendance usually 13,000 or so with all of the empty corporate seats that they give to sponsors. After that, the only time there is a decent crowd is when the Yankees or Red Sox are in town and bring their own fans along with the old geezers who have transplanted themselves into the area.

RIP Peter Magowan.  Didn't even know of him, but big respect to someone who fights to keep a team in a local market, especially if that market can easily support the team.

Another baseball great is gone. Frank Robinson was MVP in both leagues, was the first African American manager in the MLB, Giants manager in a tough/sad period, and is in the Hall of Fame obviously. Fuck bone cancer twice.

RIP Frank Robinson and Albert Finney.

I'm a big fan of Finney and his role in Miller's Crossing is my favorite.

X2. An absolutely underrated movie.

Maybe popularly underrated but surely not critically? It's a masterpiece.

It's hard to overstate the impact that Finney had in the UK in the early years of his career. "Saturday Night and Sunday Morning" is pretty dated now but was a big marker of cultural shift in Britain from the austerity of the 50s to the swinging 60s. He was damn handsome, too.

He was absolutely perfect as Hercule Poirot in the best screen adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express. A truly great actor. :(

Underappreciated is the word I should have used.
