 Step right up and greet the Mets --- in their underwear.  Perhaps drunk.  Jim has a boo boo on his knee.

Entertainer Fred Astaire was born in Omaha, Nebraska on this date in 1899.

  1. My favorite show biz quote (other than how she is a heinous bitch goddess...) "Sure, Fred Astaire was great, but don't forget Ginger Rogers did everything he did backwards and in high heels!"
