I read another interesting perspective on David Mamet's opinion piece in the Village Voice a few weeks back, this time in the New York Post (March 22, 2008) by Jonah Goldberg...Good old Mamet...Always stirring the pot..."It would have been nice, the Swiss thing."...I guess we can guess the final fate of the CBS show, "The Unit," in light of Mamet's new point of view...At least "Redbelt" is in the can and set to debut at the Tribeca Film Festival, "House of Games" is in light rotation on my cable system, and my DVD's of "Heist" and "Glengary Glen Ross" are still in the pile (now if I could only get a good copy of "Spartan" and "Homicide."...But I digress...Click here to read Jonah Goldberg's opinion, as reprinted in the Post and originated at (gulp!) The National Review!

Over the years, the sports-themed cartoons of artist and writer Bill Gallo have often given me pleasure, especially when the subject matter is my alma mater, Villanova University...Here is his cartoon from Tuesday, March 25, 2008...from one of my world-favorite daily newspapers, The New York Daily News! Go, Wildcats!

Regular readers of DeLorenzo's Dugout may remember that I am a great fan of the writing, especially for the movies, of David Mamet...In fact, I am anxiously awaiting the return of "The Unit" to CBS, and the release of "Redbelt" to theatres this spring, and have hopes of going into NYC to see Nathan Lane in "November" before it's too late...David Mamet recently wrote a very interesting article for The Village Voice, which I know I enjoyed and thought I would share with you.

I had the pleasure to meet Baseball Hall of Famer George Brett in the summer of 2005 while working on a client project, and to work with him coordinating media interviews and personal appearances that summer (including the 2005 All-Star Game in Detroit)...Every once in a while something pops up to remind me of Mr. Brett, including his "pine tar" bat that is appearing in an exhibit in Philadelphia this spring at the National Constitution Center...The March 10, 2008 issue of FORBES Magazine included a memorable quote from the Kansas City Royals great that I thought was fun (in their regular feature, "Thoughts on the Business of Life")..."If a tie is like kissing your sister, losing is like kissing your grandmother with her teeth out."
