1 Has to be around 1977 or '78?

2 Don't forget Milton Berle, Gene Kelly, and Peter Falk!

That's some Hollywood star power right there.

I loves me some Rickles.

Jul 17 Barry M. Bloom, of, reports former major league CL Rich Gossage said he believes New York Yankees SP Joba Chamberlain is more valuable to the team as a relief pitcher and not as a starting pitcher. "I think he's more valuable, personally, in the bullpen. To utilize him three or four days out of the week is more valuable than starting him. And the way starters are used today -- now it's five innings. Six innings is a quality start. They can get most anybody to be a starter with the emphasis on those setup guys, who have really been instrumental. You don't win a World [Series] championship without a great, great bullpen. So that's where his value is," Gossage said.

Don't get me wrong, I love me some Goose, but seriously STFU.

You guys only referred to the honkies. Nobody funnier than Redd Foxx. I'm commmminnnn.... Flip Wilson, too.

And how about the shot of Frank's wife, Barbara. After Nancy, Ava, Mia, Lauren Bacall (they dated), and long legged Juliet Prouse (dating only), he married Harpo Marx's widow. A former model and Vegas showgirl, she was a woman with class and style who had a love for music,art, and a phenomenal taste for complex men accompanied by the ability to be their friend.
