I found out about this saddening news just a little bit ago while I was at the gym. I tuned to the TV & it had a statement at the bottom of the screen. I couldn't believe what I was reading- "Actor & Director Penny Marshall passes away at age 75." All I could do is say "WHAT?!" to myself even though I'm pretty sure the entire gym heard me.
One of the very first #films I ever saw that I truly enjoyed was a #PennyMarshall#film, #ALeagueofTheirOwn... you may have heard of it. I love that movie! In fact, I just watched it for the millionth time a few nights ago! My sister, my mother & I would watch that movie & just laugh & laugh & laugh. I can literally quote every humorous moment within that film.
Even as a young boy, I understood how big it was not to only have an almost all woman #cast in a #featurefilm about #equality in #sports & #society for women, but also to have been directed by a woman. BIG! As I got older I came to realize just how much of a #pioneer Ms. Marshall IS, including how talented of an #actress & #comedian she was. Luckily I was able to see bits & pieces of her work in the years prior to me being born.
Thank You for all that you've given the world & the industry that I love so much. You're a #legend, You're an #icon & now you're an #angel. 😇 #RIP#RipPennyMarshall You will be forever missed...🙇🏾♂️
So many wonderful photos on the net of Laverne & Shirley 💗

11.22.1911 In the pantheon of sick discoveries throughout my time digging in the crates this one ranks top three, easy. Check it. Baseball immortal and HOFer Christy Mathewson aka "Big Six" showing his shit during a friendly exhibition between his NL Champion NY Giants vs a local 305 squad called the Miami Seminoles @ Royal Palm Park. Basically this would be like the WS Champion Boston Red Sox and Pedro Martinez playing a group of local ballers. Insane. Mercifully, Mathewson and the G's took it easy on our local boys while still handily wrapping the game up 8-3. Mathewson, career 373-188 w 2.13 ERA, put in like six innings of work. Many cool details. Note it wasn't much of an infield or mound for that matter, really raw. One umpire, too, standing right behind Mathewson. I see what appears to be a small scoreboard and the bay behind the RF, too. The wooden fence was quickly built specifically for their two exhibition games so they could charge admission: 50 cents gen ad (like $12 today) and a quarter more for the tiny grandstand. RPP was located on the corner of SE 3rd Ave and SE 2nd St Downtown Miami where Clove Med Kitchen and other biz now reside. Mad history 🔥⚾️ #miami#baseball#sports#history#mlb#exhibition#game#nygiants#sfgiants#christymathewson#beast#baller#legend#hof#oldschool#vintage#postcard#throwback#miami#downtownmiami#royalpalmpark#pure#305#dadecounty#urban#miamistadium
When we talk about pioneers and legends none epitomise those titles for me quite like Penny Marshall. She not only introduced me as a child to the notion that a woman could be a director but also in my eyes THE BEST director for my generation, making some of my favourite movies of all time, challenging gender norms and inspiring girls and women across the world. And I believe she had so much more to give. #PennyMarashall#aleagueoftheirown#Big#jumpingjackflash#ridingincarswithboys#legend#GOAT
Can you believe that Taylor does secret sessions. She really likes to meet us, to invite 40+ people TO HER HOME to listen to her Album early???? WE DON'T DESERVE HER
Would you rather:
1) Meet Taylor with one internet friend
2) Meet Taylor with one of your family members?
