Laces Out, Dan!

Image for article titled Laces Out, Dan!

It was all that Dan Marino's fault, everyone knows that. If he had held the ball, laces out, like he was supposed to, Ray would never have missed that kick. Dan Marino should die of gonorrhea and rot in hell. Would you like a cookie, son?


Thought of Ace Ventura and Sean Young this week when Crecente shared this link, which has a gallery of Polaroids of Young when she was working on Blade Runner. Edward James Olmos, Rutger Hauer and, of course, Harrison Ford all cameo.

If you're wondering why I didn't make the quote from Blade Runner the answer is: Because Blade Runner was not a funny movie. On with the deals.
