Fleur-De-Links: Saturday, May 14

It gets bad on Friday the 13th, but it gets worse on Saturday the 14th!

That's the tagline from this 1981 cinematic gem featuring Richard BenjaminPaula Prentiss, and a young Kari Michaelson (who also starred at that time on Gimme A Break). [HansDat sidenote - G A B was a show that lasted seven #$%^ seasons - seriously! I had no idea it ran for that long.]

Since IMDB didn't have a picture of Ms. Michaelson, here's a screenshot of her from the Gimme A Break title sequence. And in the interest of reaching out to all manner of CSC readers, here's a recent photo of that hunky beefcake Joey Lawrence, who once played a precocious cherub on Gimme A Break.

Wait, what am I supposed to be talking about? Football?  Saints/NFL tweets and links? OK, make the jump quickly before I go off on another 80's sitcom or movie from my childhood...

Millionaires vs. Billionaires or Them vs. Us? Why the NFL Would Do Us a Favor by Calling Off the Coming Season |
Robert Lipsyte - Some days I think that the worst-case scenario -- no National Football League games this year -- might be a blessing. It would be a year in which we could study those leading American issues that football vivifies so well.

"We went to the matresses because they made us" |
Michael David Smith - In the latest round of the war of words between the NFL and its players, NFLPA* chief DeMaurice Smith invoked some Godfather-style language to explain why he places the blame for the ongoing labor fight squarely on the owners. (HansDat note: then who's Fredo in this role-play? Who's going to get gunned down like Sonny at the toll booth? Let's carry this comparison out a little more, Maurice...)

The NFL’s self-serving anti-litigation PSA |
