    Blue Chips (Johnny Orr Sighting)

    Watching "Blue Chips" on HBO, and I forgot that Johnny Orr had a cameo in the movie when one of the recruits is in a parade with Larry Bird, with Nick Nolte driving the car. Johnny is on the side of the road with a bunch of other famous BBall coaches from the era.

    My favorite line in that movie, press conference at the end....

    Nolte...."You know 900 million chinaman couldn't give a damn, could care less right now, about this press conference"

    How true is that....

    They got that line from Reggie Jackson. Something like, "Everytime I strike out there's a billion people in China that don't care."

    My favorite sequence.

    "You know, the best coaching job I ever .. that wasn't tonight. It was last season, you know when we were 14-15, we had a losing season. But *** **** those kids they gave me their heart! They gave me everything they had! They played up to the maximum of their ability! They gave it everything!

    And you know it wasn't good enough! Wasn't good enough for me, wasn't good enough for you, wasn't good enough for anybody!


    That's pathetic. I mean it's really pathetic."


    Even more true.
