Thanks for starting this. Another celerity death this week. Wilford Brimley has died. He would have turned 86 in September. I remember seeing him in "The Firm" that also starred Tom Cruise & Gene Hackman. Of course he did oatmeal commercials & other ones too.

Yeah. He did Quaker Oats commercials in the 1980's & 1990's. In "The Firm" he was a former police detective who became the firm's security chief in charge of monitoring their lawyers & doing the dirty work of crime family "Morilitos". Terrific film based on a John Grisham novel.

The Firm was amazing. It came out in 1993 & I didn't watch it until 1998 or 1999 as a teen I think on VHS, but yes even though his role wasn't 1 of the biggest in that film, it was noteworthy. 1 of Grisham's books that was adapted into a film & is on Prime currently is "The Rainmaker" starring Matt Damon, Danny DeVito, & Claire Danes, among others. I wanted to mention thay news in case some if you remember him.

Yeah. I wish that the Canucks & Leafs would have won yesterday, but but it was fine. I watched "Paths of Glory" overnight. What did you get to do?

It seems so long since I last watched hockey. My Habs are so bad.

I hope you guys had a great weekend (or Civil holiday weekend or Bank holiday weekend). Not much happening here. I was working on my interview prep.

Montreal just won vs. Pittsburgh on Saturday. They are not awful. Some NHL teams don't even get to play in this tournament. The Canucks & Maple Leafs I do worry about more, because they didn't score anny goals on Sunday. Goaltending for them I do expect to be fine.
