We’ve seen plenty of clips from The Sessions, but few from this film, which was a great nude scene from a much younger Helen Hunt (she was in her late 20s).

Once upon a time, when I wore a younger man’s clothes, I did some collages from this film. I also wrote a brief review, because the film itself is excellent and underappreciated.

It’s kind of a shame that HH pissed away so many years on her mediocre sitcom, which began right after she did The Waterdance. That period, nearly an entire decade, may have cost her a spot on the all-time A list. (Although she did do As Good as it Gets during her sitcom era.)

F. Robby was one of the greatest players of my youth, and a top tier Hall of Famer.

He is the only player to win the MVP in both leagues, and he was the first African-American to become a major league manager.

He was a superstar even as he broke out of the gate with Cincinnati. He hit 38 homers with a .290 batting average in his rookie year, making him the unanimous choice as rookie of the year, and he raised the ante to .322 the following year.

He was the NL MVP in 1961, which was a real show of respect, because some great players had great years in ’61. The early 60s in the NL may have been the greatest collection of top line talent in baseball history, especially in the outfield, and Robinson won that MVP against great years from Cepeda (.311 46-142), Clemente (.351 with power), Aaron (.327 34-120) and Mays (.308 40-123). (Imagine the outfield of Mays, Aaron, Clemente and Robinson. Which one would you bench? I’d play the other three and move Robinson to first base, where he played from time to time.) You’d think it would be hard to top winning an MVP against that talent pool, but his following year was better in every respect. He raised his OBP and slugging enough to lead the league in both, reached his highest HR total to that point, knocked in 136 runs, batted .342 and added a new dimension to his slugging – 51 doubles.

When the Cincinnati Reds traded him to the Orioles a bit later – a trade often considered the dumbest in history – he attacked American League pitching with ferocity, finishing his first AL season with 49 homers, and again leading the league in both OBP and slugging. That won him his second MVP and his first World Championship, which included the World Series MVP trophy to sit on his mantel next to the regular season one. The Orioles were magnificent in that series against the Dodgers. The Dodgers had their vaunted 1-2 punch of Koufax and Drysdale on the mound, but it was the O’s pitching that shone, allowing the Dodgers only two runs in a four-game sweep. The O’s beat Koufax once and Drysdale twice. Robinson kicked off the sweep by hitting a homer off Drysdale in the very first inning of the Series. Robinson also sealed the sweep with another homer off Drysdale to account for the only run in the final game.

His second and final World Championship, in 1970, was the sweetest of all. A Robinson was the Series MVP that time as well – but that was the time for Brooks to shine. So why was it so sweet for Frank? He won it against the same Cincinnati Reds who had dumped him five years earlier.

What a career

It’s interesting to see how the oddsmakers view it.

If you really think your faves have a chance at the Oval Office, you might be able to clean up on this. For example, you can get 25-1 on Elizabeth Warren, so a bet of ten grand lands you a check for a quarter of a million if she makes it to the White House. Righteous bucks.

Or as she would say, righteous wampum.

Trump is, as you might expect, approximately an even money bet (21-10), since he’s more or less certain of the GOP nomination, and about a coin flip in the general election.

A bet for Kamala Harris only pays off 6-1 at this moment. That doesn’t seem like a good bet to me. A lot can happen between now and then, and that’s not much reward for your risk. Kamala has really been established as a betting favorite, which surprised me. I like her well enough, but I didn’t know she had that much swagger. She only pays off 10-3 on a bet to win the Democratic nomination.

Beto is the next favorite for the nomination, even though he hasn’t even declared. The best payoff on him is 13-2 to win the nomination. Biden is next, with the best odds being 7-1. There is a sizeable gap after those three. Bernie pays off at 12-1, Warren at 14-1. At this point Cory Booker is a 20-1 shot for the nomination. You can get 33-1 on Hillary if you like the long shots.
