Unfairly Slimed: It's Time To Forgive Ghostbusters II

In the weeks leading up to June 16, 1989, I can only imagine how incessantly my seven-year-old self pestered my parents to go see Ghostbusters II. I spent years obsessed with the 1984 original, once watching it on repeat from the moment I woke up to the moment I got sent to bed, wearing my plastic proton pack and… » 6/20/14 11:10am 6/20/14 11:10am

Watch Bill Murray And Harry Caray Kick Off The Cubs' First Night Game

Twenty-five years ago today, the Chicago Cubs and the Philadelphia Phillies played the first-ever night game at Wrigley Field.

Bill Murray Is Wearing A Ghillie Suit And Punting Footballs At The…

I'd urge anyone watching this to try not to make sense of it. Bill Murray (paired with D.A. Points) is competing today at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am in a ghillie suit, what appear to be gardening gloves, and at one point he punted a football into the crowd. It's all so ludicrously surreal you may wish to tune in the… » 2/11/12 1:34pm 2/11/12 1:34pm
