Veteran creative executives Rick French and Patrick Shanahan are partnering with Buddy Holly’s widow on “Clear Lake,” depicting Holly’s 1958 music tour with Clarence Collins, Variety has learned exclusively. […]

Looking forward to this.

Just received my THREE MISSIONS edition @FieldNotesBrand: “Although assembled capsule is rated for use in Zero-G environments, do not use for actual space flight. Capsule will not survive re-entry, will not float after splashdown, and will not result in ticker-tape parades.”

Remembering Steve McNair

Independence Day conjures up images of “Air” McNair’s amazing performances and a life taken too soon

Yussuf Khan writing at The Shadow League (last year):

He was known for his toughness and for being a dual threat with both his arm and legs, and he was always the one to watch when he had the ball in his hands. […] He was an original, and another great name in the long line of incredible Black college quarterbacks whose on field performance elevated them to legendary status. […]

Steve “Air” McNair was a football legend who will never be forgotten, and on Independence Day, we honor his memory.

“Zooey, you are about to marry one of the most honest, kind and fun-loving people I’ve ever had the honor of knowing. The Pistol is a pleasure giver that’s for sure. So beautiful Zooey, give it back. Yeah?” I Love You, Man (2009)
