 Mark McGwire: synchy red stuff 
Author Message
Former Major Leaguer Mark McGwire once testified in the Sentate about his role in steroids:



Yesterday, he came out (finally) with a statement admitting he used to use steroids.

But he's a "marked" man. Even though he was an incredible hitter (I'll spare you the statistics) he'll probably continue to be shunned by the Hall of Fame voters for his previous activities.

His name is Mark. He played for the Athletics (known as the A's) - which recalls the scarlet letter A (a 'mark'.) And he played for the Cardinals (aka The Red Birds - scarlet.)

The Cardinals have just recently hired him as a batting coach - hired by his former manager Tony LaRussa. Tony is the name of a reddish-brown fashion color. LaRussa means someone with red hair:

Oddly, it is McGwire who has the red hair, not LaRussa.

LaRussa says he may also use him as a pinch-hitter - pinching someone makes that part of their skin turn red.

I was wondering how long it would take for some kind of baseball synch from you......

nothing to add yet except....if I remember correctly Barry Bonds topped Mark's Home Run record....??. and barry and his wife made a recent apperance on the Sun King Thread...
Quote:
Home run king Barry Bonds' son charged with battery after allegedly throwing doorknob at mom....

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP) — San Mateo County prosecutors have charged Barry Bonds' son with five misdemeanors after he allegedly threw a doorknob at his mother....

The 45-year-old Sun Bonds, the home run king's ex-wife, wasn't injured.



Nice start

Yeah trying to keep baseball out of it. :)

Barry Bonds (as in gold bonds?) is the single-season home run leader and the all-time homer leader. However, McGwire has the highest home run rate in baseball history, even higher than Babe Ruth (remarkable.)

From taint to tarnish:

from tarnish to eclipse (as in he eclipsed several home run records (I won't name them all):

" Image "

3 days from now, a solar eclipse:

which is the same word basically, as "occult":

Going too far or decent reasoning? Is this an omen or an omlet (big fat egg!) ? :)

no mark for you but here are some reds....

1. http://splashpage.mtv.com/tag/john-malkovich
John Malkovich Joins 'Red,' Replaces John C. Reilly
Quote:
John Malkovich's status as the latest "Spider-Man" villain isn't entirely clear yet, but the actor does have some official news on the comic book front — he's joining the cast of "Red."

Even at the expense of Reilly's departure, Malkovich's enlistment to the "Red" cast only furthers the continually exciting line-up of big name actors attached to the project. In addition to Malkovich, the cast of "Red" consists of Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Helen Mirren, Mary-Louise Parker, James Remar, Julian McMahon, Ernest Borgine, Richard Dreyfuss and Brian Cox. "Priest" star Karl Urban has also reportedly signed on to play a character named Cooper.

another couple of reds for you

Quote:
The Xbox 360 video game console is subject to a number of technical problems that can render it unusable. Many of the issues can be identified by a series of red lights flashing on the face of the console; the three flashing red lights (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death") being the most infamous

Three flashing red lights around the Xbox 360 power button (nicknamed the "Red Ring of Death" or "Red Lights of Death"), in lieu of the one to four green lights indicating normal operation, represent an internal problem that requires service.

thinking about Red/and the Red Cross blood drive made me think about this

Quote:
The Masque of the Red Death", originally published as "The Mask of the Red Death"(1842) is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe.
The story takes place at the castellated abbey of the "happy and dauntless and sagacious" Prince Prospero. Prospero and one thousand other nobles have taken refuge in this walled abbey to escape the Red Death, a terrible plague that has swept over the land. The symptoms of the Red Death are gruesome: the victim is overcome by convulsive agony and sweats blood instead of water. The plague is said to kill within half an hour. Prospero and his court are presented as indifferent to the sufferings of the population at large, intending to await the ending of the plague in luxury and safety behind the walls of their secure refuge.
One night, Prospero holds a masquerade ball to entertain his guests in seven colored rooms of the abbey. Six of the rooms are each decorated and illuminated in a specific color: blue, purple, green, orange, white, and violet. The last room is decorated in black and is illuminated by a blood-red light; because of this chilling pair of colors, few guests are brave enough to venture into the seventh room.


The film version added a bit more Satan to the mix….and some tarot cards too… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Masque ... eath_(film)
