Photo: Frank Franklin II/AP/Shutterstock/Frank Franklin II/AP/Shutterstoc I had just moved to New York when the last World Series between the Mets and Yankees took place, in 2000. Though I hadn’t lived in the city long, its baseball pecking order was clear enough to anyone. The series pitted the then-dominant Yankees (who had won three of the previous four World Series) against the plucky Mets (who trailed the Yankees in total World Series titles by … 23). The series, which the Yankees won 4-1, reflected that dynamic; it felt like a big brother allowing his tinier sibling a few meek swings at him before felling him with one straight jab.

It was a lunatic moment made even more surreal by the fact that Clemens both avoided an ejection and ended up tossing eight shutout innings, earning the win.

Miller, and Chuck Noland had to endure. I doubt that most people will find anything relatable—or redeemable—about Colonel Tom Parker, Hanks’ character in Elvis . While he helped Elvis Presley’s popularity explode across the country and then the world, so much so that he went on to become the highest selling solo artist in musical history, Parker’s unethical management of the icon led him to pocket at least half of Elvs’ income over his career. Parker is unlike any movie that Hanks has been in before, … [Read more...] about Has Tom Hanks Given His Last F*ck?
