Reds great Sparky Anderson dies
Manager of Big Red Machine was 76
By John Erardi jerardi@enquirer.com November 4, 2010

Comments (27) Recommend (11) Print this page ShareThis Font size:AA Reds fans will remember Sparky Anderson for three things: The way he was hired, the way he was fired, and everything in between.

He was Sparky Who? in the headlines when he was hired as a 35-year-old no-name manager at the end of the 1969 season.

After his firing nine years later, he was mourned by fans throughout Reds Country as though theyd lost a loved one.

In between, the Main Spark (a nickname he picked up from the name of his pre-game radio show) led the Reds to five divisional crowns, four World Series appearances and two world championships.

Anderson died Thursday at his home in Thousand Oaks, Calif., of complications from dementia. He was 76.

Sparky's a bit late, but I guess he'll fit right in very nicely, thank you!

Your third of "they Come in Threes" winner.

Meanwhile Zsa Zsa is near the 'ned,' or so they say...

Jill Clayburgh, Oscar-nominated actress and Broadway veteran, dies at 66 of leukemia

LAKEVILLE, Conn. - Jill Clayburgh, whose Broadway and Hollywood acting career stretched through the decades, highlighted by her Oscar-nominated portrayal of a divorcee exploring her sexuality in the 1978 film "An Unmarried Woman," died Friday. She was 66.

Her husband, Tony Award-winning playwright David Rabe, said she died after a 21-year battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. She was surrounded by her family and brother when she died at her home in Lakeville, he said.

She dealt with the disease courageously, quietly and privately, Rabe said, and conducted herself with enormous grace "and made it into an opportunity for her children to grow and be human."

Clayburgh came from a privileged New York family. Her father was vice president of two large companies, and her mother was a secretary for Broadway producer David Merrick. Her grandmother, Alma Clayburgh, was an opera singer and New York socialite.

Growing up in a such a rich cultural mix, she could easily have been overwhelmed. Instead, as she said in interviews, she asserted herself with willful and destructive behavior so much so that her parents took her to a psychiatrist when she was 9.

She escaped into a fantasy world of her own devising. She was entranced by seeing Jean Arthur play "Peter Pan" on Broadway, and she and a school chum concocted their own dramatics every day at home. She became serious-minded at Sarah Lawrence College, concentrating on religion, philosophy and literature.

Clayburgh also took drama classes at Sarah Lawrence. She and her friend Robert De Niro acted in a film, "The Wedding Party," directed by a Sarah Lawrence graduate, Brian DePalma. After graduating with a bachelor of arts degree, she began performing in repertory and in Broadway musicals such as "The Rothschilds" and "Pippin."

Alongside Richard Thomas, she headed the 2005 Broadway cast of "A Naked Girl on the Appian Way," Richard Greenberg's comedy about one family's unusual domestic tribulations.

Director Doug Hughes, who directed her in a production of Arthur Miller's "All My Sons" at the Westport Country Playhouse two years ago, called her for "Naked Girl."

"That she has the time to do a run of a play is just an extraordinary boon because I've had the pleasure of seeing her play a bona fide tragic American role beautifully, and I have had the pleasure of directing her in a very, very smart light comedy and be utterly brilliant in that," he said in 2005.

During an interview that year, Clayburgh explained the unglamorous side of acting.

"One of the funny things about actors is that people look at their careers in retrospect, as if they have a plan," she said.

"Mostly, you just get a call. You're just sitting there going, 'Oh, my God. I'm never going to work again. Oh, God. I'm too old. Maybe I should go and work for Howard Dean.' And then it changes."

Besides appearing in such movies as "I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can," ''Silver Streak" and "Running With Scissors," Clayburgh's Broadway credits include Noel Coward's "Design for Living," the original production of Tom Stoppard's "Jumpers," and the Tony Award-winning musicals "Pippin" and "The Rothschilds."

Clayburgh was also nominated for an Academy Award for "Starting Over," a comedy about a divorced man, played by Burt Reynolds, who falls in love but can't get over his ex-wife. She appeared on TV shows including "Dirty Sexy Money" and was nominated for two Emmys: for best actress in 1975 for her work on "Hustling" and for her guest turn on "Nip/Tuck" on FX in 2005.

She is survived by three children, including actress Lily Rabe, Michael Rabe and stepson Jason Rabe.

There will be no funeral, Rabe said. The family will have a memorial in about six months, though plans have not been finalized.

It's a bad attitude to learn to like MILF's at an early age? Don't you have a locomotive to fall off of?
