Norman Einstein
 
Well well well.. it seems that Joey T's "famous" quote about Norman Einstein actually was props to a real person that Joe knows. Norman Einstein was valedectorian of the high school Thiesmann attended and went on to become an ER doc. Thiesmann apparently though very highly of him.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the real [URL=http://www.charlotte.com/mld/observer/entertainment/8952316.htm]Norman Einstein[/URL]!

Guess I'll need a new sig.

I found it (and a lot of the other stuff) through Google News. I bookmarked a search I did and it always returns some good articles. It won't return things from the network's web pages (ESPN, CBS, etc), but it does return things from daily newspapers, NFL.com, and official team web pages. It's pretty much what you get from ESPN Insider plus the NFL sites.

Here ya go for your bookmarking pleasure...

good stuff man, thanks. I might take the Nascar part out to limit it to Skins stuff.

Dave Butz Baby! 06-18-2004 01:12 PM

Actually, the NASCAR stuff is already being excluded in the search string (that's the part that says "-NASCAR"). It also excludes the word Clinton, because there is a high school in Michigan whose teams are the Clinton Redskins.

ahh, well I apologize. Seems youve read enough articles on there to know what to search for, very nice.

DBB, my take on this is that it still really was a blooper and you should not change your signature. Obviously, when he said it NO ONE in the listening audience would have known who he was talking about, and he did nothing to clarify it. I think he just made a slip that we all make from time-to-time, and, knowing two people with the same last name, accidentally transposed the first names without noticing it. It does eliminate the "bonehead" aspect of the blooper, though, and changes it to a mere slip of the tongue.

Hehehe.. not really! "Data mining" is actually what I do for a living. I spend all day writing code to find certain things and exclude others.

Really exciting stuff, I'll tell you what!

I agree this is probably the case, though I have been known to throw a name or phrase out to a large group that is actually a private joke that one or two people might get. It can be fun to get a room full of blank stares!

I was considering replacing it with this gem....

After hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skins say: "I'd run over my own
mother to win the Super Bowl," Matt Millen of the Raiders said: "To
win, I'd run over Joe's Mom, too."

I guess they both hit Joe's Mom in '91!

Tell you what... let's move this off of here. Shoot me an email from the board and I can talk to you more about it...
