Reporter: What kinds of things would [Lakers] fans do to you?
Larry Bird: They’d be out there shaking our bus and everything. But one night, they beat us and we’re walking out to the bus and this little Mexican guy ran up and just punched me right in the nose! Just jumped up and punched me right in the nose! And that little guy took off so fast. It was almost like it didn’t really happen. I said to my teammates, "Did you see that? That Mexican guy punched me in the nose!"

From the archives at UNZ.org: Francis Ford Coppola’s Biggest Gamble, July 1981 article in ‘Saturday Review’ on making ‘One from the Heart.’ This awesome article is as much about the film as it is about his ambitious Zoetrope Studios project. Great read. [thanks to Larry Wright]
The making of Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘One From The Heart’ dates from 1982 and shows in detail the conception of the characters and the sets and the insane methods and technological experiments by which they were brought to the screen.

Today Ryan Smyth of the Edmonton Oilers played his 1,270th  and final NHL game.

As he was taking his final lap in tears and saluting fans, we got to witness one of the classiest moments in sports we’ve ever seen. The entire canuck team came back out to individually congratulate Ryan Smyth on an amazing career.

Ain’t hockey just the greatest?

Joe Torre hits two home runs in Milwaukee’s 4-2 Opening Day victory at Crosley Field. Next season on the same date, the Braves catcher will do it again, joining teammate Eddie Mathews as the only major leaguers to have hit two home runs twice in games played on Opening Day.
