What does Chief Tyrol and his Deck Crew have in common?  Well, someone mentioned

Maybe, like Hank Hill, Tyrol has a narrow urethra?

So Chief Tyrol is Hank Hill!!! That explains so much, such as why his deckhands always stand around, drink moonshine and fail to make coherent sentences… yep.

King of Galactica

There you go, that's Boomhauer, Hank, Dale and Bill for ya.

  自從去年到現場觀看第24屆亞錦賽,台灣對菲律賓一戰後,我一直覺得台灣可以投資菲律賓的棒球市場。前一陣子也看到駐亞洲的球探提出在菲律賓打造大聯盟主導的聯盟,做為亞職球員繞過小聯盟前進大聯盟的跳板。沒想到大家都慢了一步,在 2007 年已經有人搶先在菲律賓創立職業聯盟: Baseball Philippines

2007亞錦賽的菲律賓隊總教練 Edgar Delos Reyes 與三壘手 Nino Tator 讓我印象深刻

Nathan, ever the politician.

 

There are a lot of talks about Nathan's rapid shifting of sides in Heroes season 3.  Frankly there are a lot of talks about Sylar's rapid shifting of sides in season 3.  Some fans thinks this is due to poor writing, and they are out of character. 

 

I don't share that view and I think this could possibly be the deepest and most thoughtful season of Heroes yet.  I think the writer is trying to show us it's not your views that makes you a villain, because you can be a villain no matter what your view is.

Hopefully this is what will be on front pages during the 2009 season. Well, maybe not 2009, but at least by 2011? 

 

I can dream…can't I ?  He sure looks good in that uniform.

陳致遠:球員工會應爭取最低薪資保障」這篇新聞讓許多球迷看到了一絲希望。已經有許多球迷和球評指出建立完善的球員工會是改進職棒環境最有效的方法。職棒球員運動生涯相當短,現在的制度下也沒有退休金。薪水如果和一般工作差不多,一但失去舞台生活就失去保障。如果沒有合理的薪資,難免出現好選手寧可留在業餘球隊以求末來有保障,或是職棒選手受不了黑道威脅利誘配合打水球的情況。因此合理薪資也是防水球和重建球迷對職棒信心的方法。然而怎樣才算合理的薪資呢?

 

美國基本工資是時薪 $6.55。如果一週是 40 個工作時間,一年是 $12,576 (等於台幣 41.5萬)。美國大聯盟球員工會訂的大聯盟球員最低薪資是 $380,000 (等於台幣 1,254萬)。美國大聯盟最低薪資是美國基本工資的 30 倍,而登入過 40 人名單的小聯盟球員基本工資是 $60,000(等於台幣 198萬)。只要上過 40 人名單,美國球員最低薪資是美國基本工資的 4 倍。

 

不曾登錄 40 人的小聯盟球員因為沒有小聯盟工會,第一個球季如果從菜鳥聯盟出發,最低月薪是美金 $1,100。由於最多僅付 10 個月薪水,實際最低月薪低於美金 $1,000 元。但是隨著在小聯盟中的年數和等級增加,薪水也會隨著增加。受期待的選手至少都有美金 $20萬 以上的簽約金。在簽約金用完前升到 AA 以上的等級,就能得到超過美國基本工資 2 倍以上的薪資。

2008 年亞職賽統一7-11獅隊痛擊 SK 飛龍隊,成為繼 2006 La new 熊後第二支在亞職賽中擊敗韓國的球隊。其中極大一部份要歸功於中華職棒首次為亞職派出的專門情蒐小組。第 312 期的職業棒球雜誌採訪了肩負情蒐重任的馮勝賢與林聿文,其中一句話令我思考。

馮勝賢說,由於他是選手出身,知道球員要的是什麼,因此,情蒐資料力求簡單明瞭,「學術派的數據選手根本不想聽,站在球員的立場想就對了。」

職業棒球雜誌 312 期

馮勝賢會出此言有幾種可能,我能想到的有兩種。第一、過去曾經有人把學術派數據當成情蒐成果給球員,球員覺得毫無用處。第二、可能沒有人拿學術派數據當成情蒐成果,只是球員平常就覺得學術派的數據毫無用處。而讓我深思的是「學術派數據」怎麼會和「情蒐成果」混為一談?而我深深希望馮勝賢說的是第一種情況,而非球員任何情況下都不願理解學術派數據。

After hearing what Mike Huckabee said about the issue of Gay Marriage on The Daily Show, I have come to the conclusion of what will resolve the debate on Gay Marriage once and for all.

 

Most prominent anti-gay-marriage politician would argue that a homosexual couple can civil union instead, stating that it grants, to a large extent, similar privileges to marriage.  They also would argue that marriage is a term to define "man-woman" unions, because it is so written in the bible.

 

I am a firm believer of separation of church and state, so it seems blatantly obvious the solution to this issue is leave the task of defining marriage out of government.  Since marriage and the very definition of marriage is a religious matter, it has no business for the government to sponsor it. 

 

Couples should go do the paper works for the government to recognize their union, but if they want to be "married" they go to the church and do the religious ceremony.  That is pretty much how it is done anyway.  So I say do it properly.

 

All future couples should only be recognized as civil unions in the eyes of the government, and marriage or not will be the task for individual's religion to determine.  If your church strongly believes in anti-gay-marriage, fine, then no gay marriage will be recognized by your church and its believers.  But there are other churches and people that would.

 

I am sure I am not the first one come up with this idea, but it makes a lot of sense to me.

跳格子雖然只是短片,但是在公視人生劇場播出後卻有許多人向公視詢問會不會出成 DVD 或是 VCD。 被短短 15 分鐘的片子感動的不僅是公視的觀眾,連金馬獎的評審也把最佳新人獎頒給了 Suming 。
