Several movies quotes have been running through my mind. I realize my thoughts are probably unfair and not exactly peaceful.
Sean Connery as "Jim Malone" in "The Untouchables" explained to Kevin Costner's "Elliott Ness" how to get Al Capone: "They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue." The Steelers pulled a knife, sent Palmer to the hospital and got away with it.
Accident? John Wayne in "Big Jake" to Richard Boone: "And you understand. Anything goes wrong, anything at all--your fault, my fault, nobody's fault--it won't matter--I'm gonna blow your head off."
Yes, those quotes are extreme, and make-believe as well--and, yes, on refelction, my "better angels" would probably make me regret even having the thoughts.......I just hope the Colts whip the Steelers 75-0.
What about the Duke in "The Quiet Man" talking to the Reverend about the reason why he quit fighting:
“Tony Gadelo was a good egg... nice little wife and home, a couple of kids, clean fighter. But I didn’t go in there to out box him. I went in there to beat his brains out, to drive him into the canvas, to murder him. That’s what I did. For what? Purse? Piece of the gate? Lousy money.”
