    Talking A lesson from Joe Dirt....

    I've been kind of bored tonight (obviously), so I watched Joe Dirt again (great comedy for anyone that hasn't seen it) and was reminded of the current situation around our MBB team when I heard the following quotes......

    To Joe Dirt from Radio Host (Dennis Miller):
    "You are an underachievement nexus in the universe. It'll always be like this, Joey."

    Joe Dirt's Response:
    "But you got to keep going.
    I won't quit. That's not an option.
    You gotta keep on keeping on. Life's
    a garden, dig it, make it work for you.
    You never give up, man.
    That's my philosophy. You hear that?"

    -The 1st quote reminded me of some of the nancy's around here claiming most of our players & coaches are not worthy of being in the Big XII and they will never achieve.

    -I hope the 2nd quote encompasses our coach's and team's attitudes moving forward. They just need to keep pressing on and good things will come - there's really no other option. As long as they keep working hard and believe in each other, good things will eventually come.

    ------------------------------------------

    I'm just throwin' this quote in for fun - couldn't resist.......

    Joe Dirt to Kicking Wing (Joe's Indian buddy who owns a fireworks stand:)
    "Come on.... You don't got no ladyfingers,
    buzz bottles, snicker bombs...
    ...church burners, finger blasters, gut
    busters, zippedy-doodas, crap flappers?"

    Kicking Wing's Response:
    No, I don't.

    Joe Dirt (again):
    You're gonna stand there,
    owning a fireworks stand...
    ...and say you have
    no whistling bungholes...
    ...spleen splitters, whisker biscuits,
    honkey lighters, Hüsker Düs - Hüsker don'ts.
    Cherry bombs, nipsy dazers, with
    or without the scooter stick......or one single
    whistling kitty-chaser?


    Okay, probably time for bed now that I've posted this masterpiece. Darn internet anyway.

    Great, underrated movie. I watch it every time it comes on FX or whatever it comes on...

    My favorite lines:

    "See the peanut, dead giveaway.
    That's a space peanut."

    Not to hijack the thread...but Lost Dog is underrated as well! Something about Spade...I am sure many are turned off by his sarcasm but I find him to be hilarious! As for Lost Dog...any movie with Sophie Marceau in it...I will stop flipping the channels just to look at her!

    Joe Dirt is a pretty fun flick. The scenes with Jamie Pressley are great.

    I even hate to admit it, but I thought Dickie Roberts, Former Child Star was pretty good as well.

    Hmmm......I'm a huge Spade fan and don't know anything about Lost Dog - I'll have to check that out. Thanks!

    I believe you're referring to Lost& Found
    Lost & Found (1999/I)

    You most likely won't find it under the name Lost Dog. I believe he is talking about Lost and Found.

    Oops...it is actually called "Lost & Found". Sorry about that. It is more of a romantic comedy...but Spade is as sarcastic as ever! Again...with Sophie Marceau in it...that is all I need to enjoy the film.

    Spade singing Brother Love's Travelling Salvation Show is worth price of admission.
