I went to the Patriots game in San Diego yesterday. We hit the road super early and tailgated with Sam Adams Octoberfest, sweet Italian sausages with garlic grilled peppers and onions and bacon cheese burgers. We won tailgating. Then we won the game.
This is what the sky looks like starting the day.
The Naked Gun boobs.
Ladder ball. This was so much fun. Also, I was awesome at it.
This mural has some funny/weird stuff on it.
This guy is how you watch football games.
This is what the sky looks like ending the day.
Patriots 23 Chargers 20. The game shouldn't have been that close but a win is a win.
Today I saw Goodfellas & Mean Streets at the New Beverly Cinema. Seeing those movies in a theater was awesome but this was extra awesome because Nicholas Pileggi and Paul Sorvino did a Q&A before Goodfellas. Their stories about working with Scorsese, Deniro and Liotta were priceless. They talked about everything Goodfellas including how Pileggi & Scorsese connected to make the film, adapting Wiseguy into Goodfellas, casting real life wiseguys, improving on the set, Scorsese's planning the soundtrack, the dinner in prison scene, how Sorvino prepped for the role, Sorvino's thoughts on acting and so much more. If you're a fan of Goodfellas and haven't read Wiseguy, I highly recommend it. Also, if you haven't seen Mean Streets, I recommend that as well.
Sorvino said a great line about Italian cooks: "If you tell an Italian restauranteur, 'Give me a bad meal or I'll blow your brains out,' the cook says, "Pull the trigger, I can't help you."
"One day some of the kids from the neighborhood carried my mother's groceries all the way home. You know why? It was outta respect."
