I can barely contain my enthusiasm...time to download a little Bare Naked Ladies..."If I had a million dollars..."
Multiple Wimbledon title holders, unlike Benjamin Becker and Brian Baker.
Bettina Bunge's backhand...
B & B
^^^ Dedan's avatar and the alliterative list above remind me of the boxing Boom Boom...Ray Mancini.
He was never the same fighter after the infamous D-K Kim title bout.
Boom Boom Becker, a nickname Boris did not like for obvious reasons...
(Alberto Mancini once beat Boris Becker in the Monte Carlo final)
Bernie Boom Boom Geoffrion, NHL Hall of Famer and six-time Stanley Cup champion; regarded as the "inventor" of the slapshot.
Geoff with Craig Ferguson...
An unidentified woman pulls a flying saucer from the sky...
UFO...Unidentified Female Operative!
Damn that Ovechkin...ruining my wildest dreams!
SVR's Anna Chapman
Uncovered Female Operative...
From Russia With Lust!
BTW, who is the UFO with the perfect body???
The Spy who came in from the cold and loved me.
"Nobody Does It Better"...one of only two Bond theme songs with a different title than its matching film.
The song won the Oscar and was Carly Simon's longest charting single. It was written by Hamlisch/Sager.
^^^I will correct myself...the song was only nominated for the Oscar...beaten by "You Light Up My Life" (yuk!)
Also, Radiohead's cover of the tune is pretty damn good!
Originals are always my favorites but Daniel Craig is growing on me!
Daniel Radcliffe - the original Harry Potter

Manoj Night Shyamalan
Eating pickled herring with mayonnaise on rye one night with an Altai shaman...
Corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and Russian or 1,000 Island dressing on rye, all grilled...the classic Reuben sandwich!
Origin of this classic vary...some say an Omaha grocer named Reuben K. invented the sandwich for consumption at his weekly poker games. Others claim it got started in the early 20th century in a NYC deli and was created for a famous actress as a post-performance snack.
The Earl of Sandwich...
Why is an Earl's wife called a Countess???
Do you think the Earl of Sandwich's wife was a calorie Counter???
The Count Of Monte Cristo (another classic sandwich)!
A fondness for this samdwich will really make you count calories!
Transylvania's Ion Țiriac's blue clay courts, worse than being impaled...
The Falafel King in Westwood, near UCLA...
The king of clay's return to Monte Carlo...
All this food talk reminds me of Lavash and Bhakri (a bread that is thick and crumbly like a biscuit).
Makiri likes a lavish breakfast; it puts a hop in her step...
Hop skip & jump...former name of the track event, the triple jump!
Triple Crown winner Secretariat...
Does the "rear end" of CraigyFerg's Secretariat have to remain in costume while in the stall? Does he/she get hazardous duty pay for assuming that position?
"I've never spent a colder winter than a summer in San Francisco"...Mark Twain!
Winterland...not a dreary rock'n'roll venue in '60's-'80's San Francisco. Its former site may be a bit drearier...converted to apartment buildings.
The Fillmore (Bill Graham's original venue)...
Millard Fillmore, unlucky 13th POTUS...his wife, Abigail, caught a cold during her husband's successor's inauguration that resulted in fatal pneumonia only 26 days after the change in power.
