Nice Place You Got Here

I'm pleased and honored to be guest blogging here, after leaving so many bits of Hraka in the comments over the years. I promise I won't drop F-bombs in front of the wimmin folk, do anything to scare the children or frighten the horses. I'll also take a loyalty oath if necessary, but only to the Seychelles.

Forthwith...

Bill Laimbeer, Detroit Pistons, um, sorta great, was a sleestack.

I'm not referring to his looks or the way he played - shuffling, slow, gimpy, not real smart. If I had to play "What Monster Is He?", I would figure he was more like the Swamp Thing - slow, clumsy, no hops, but a definite appeal to unconscious women... Laimbeer definitely did have a lizzard brain though, if you ever saw him play. He was nasty.

And while I'm at it, Sid and Marty Krofft, who produced "Land of the Lost", also produced The Brady Bunch, H.R. Pufnstuf, Lidsville, and Far Out Space Nuts.

Okay, first off, Pufnstuf, and Lidsville? Were these guys huge stoners, and dying laughing that the network censors let them get away with those names for kids shows?

Second, how the hell did they come up with all those hideous shows? Did they have some huge cannon-like device, that tossed out great big piles of schlock? Could it be that there is a 155mm Self-Propelled Schlock Artillery piece rusting out on a back lot at MGM? Of course if there is such a thing as schlock artillery, I'm pretty sure the broadcast networks each have a battalion, and Sci-Fi and Lifetime each have a brigade.

I will fess up and admit that I liked the Sleestacks. But then I was a 10 year-old moron, and I liked Velveeta too. I also hated Rick Mahorn, who was one of Laimbeer's arch enemies back in the late 70's NBA, when it had a pro-wrestling-like atmosphere. So maybe my subconscious mind made me like the Sleestacks. That, and the fact that they moved like more athletic looking versions of Danny Schayes.

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

Never liked the Kroft stuff, but the wife is nuts for it.

Bill Laimbeer is pure evil. I only wish he was a Celtic.

(Now that he's retired, I can admit it...)
