Jeff's Reviews

Thoughts on movies I've seen recently.


The Frozen North

April 16, 2021

Hard to understand Dick’s own voiceover, presumably recorded when he was an old man. He’s not very good at reading his own material. Might have been worth combining all the footage to produce a more complete, succinct, well-rounded documentary about Dick and his experience.

Alone in the Wilderness Part II

April 16, 2021

This one is mostly from the point of view of two others, giving us a bit more background on the man, which makes his life a little more interesting. But the footage is starting to get a bit boring.

Alone in the Wilderness

April 16, 2021

Dick led a fascinating, solitary existence in Alaska. It’s amazing what kind of life he was able to build for himself. Like Bob Ross, Dick has a real appreciation for the Alaskan outdoors, and he does a good job capturing it with his modest photography skills and equipment. All the…

Game 7 of the 2019 World Series: A Live Blog

October 31, 2019

We’re here. Game 7 of the World Series. The Washington Nationals have defied all odds to get here. They weren’t even supposed to make it to the playoffs, let alone the World Series. Along the way, they trailed in and eventually won all 4 playoff elimination games they’ve been in,…

Odds of Winning the Division

August 16, 2019

We’re now in the home stretch of the my baseball simulation league season, and I thought it might be fun to try to run some numbers to see what the odds are for each team to win their division.

Bunting into the Shift

March 26, 2019

With more frequent and more extreme shifts appearing every season, I see lefty batters pull the ball right into someone’s glove while the 3B bag sits there, sad and alone. I keep asking myself… Why don’t players bunt into the shift? It seems to me that if players could effectively…

The Card Blog

Reminiscing about some of the baseball cards I used to collect.


1991 Topps #15 – Von Hayes

September 16, 2013

The Card The 1991 Topps set was an attempt to be a little bit more minimalist and refined with its design, which was the trend in the early 90’s. An anniversary emblem adorned the front and back of every card, but other than that, it was just another very mediocre…

1990 Leaf #180 – Albert Belle

September 5, 2013

The Card Donruss used the Leaf brand from 1985 to 1988 for cards distributed in Canada. Despite their relative rarity and the fact they were almost visually identical, Leaf cards were even less desirable (if that’s even possible) than the standard Donruss offering. In 1990, Leaf was rebranded as an…

1990 Topps #162 – Todd Zeile

September 4, 2013

The Card The 1990 Topps set was a hideous abortion of secondary colors, halftone gradients, and squares. Topps tried real hard to cram the trendiest design elements into a single layout and succeeded in making one of the ugliest sets of the decade. It didn’t help that most of the…
