To be aging, spoiled, and Yankee-hating

Break out the bon bons, it's Tinseltown gossip time! David Fincher's Gone Girl DVD commentary caused monocles to drop when the megaphone jockey slammed his star, fourth-worst Batman Ben Affleck, as "unprofessional." Screen Rant slings the sassy scoop:

Fincher's "unprofessional"  remark stems from a Gone Girl moment [when Affleck's character] Nick puts on a baseball cap and hopes that people won't recognize him from the news . . . Fincher recalls that he wanted Affleck to wear a New York Yankees cap, but Affleck refused . . .  [P]roduction was shut down for four days as his team negotiated with the actor's agent, Patrick Whitesell. "I thought it was entirely unprofessional," Fincher states. Affleck ultimately wore a New York Mets cap for the Gone Girl sequence.

In the immortal words of Doug K:

Fuck Ben Aflac.

AND...

Aflac doesn't deserve to be on the same list of anything with the late, great, and venerable Adam West.

BAM!

Hey, I just stumbled over something. Something good!

Someone name of Marly Rivera (of ESPN) tweeted this on 3/22 -- about The Gleyber:

I asked him about the possible comparisons with @Lindor12BC, with both of them being in New York now: "Lindor is one of the best shortstops in the majors. I am not here to compete with that. I am here to win a World Series."

Is this the right attitude, or what?

Yeah, I know it's off-topic. But good news can't wait, can it?

Adam West was the least-used, most under-appreciated, most enjoyable actor of his generation, gifted in comedy and very able in drama.

Ben Aflac is a lucky shithead who knew Matt Damon, another idiot Red Sox fan but one with talent.

And, yes, Gleyber, like West, has the right attitude.
