7 Degrees of Tremors

Basically like the 7 degrees of Kevin Bacon except with the movie Tremors. Few other changes, these are movies, not people. This is because I wanted to rank them, and personally I've never heard of many of the actors in Tremors except the few I'm going to mention. Let's be honest, most of these are going to be Kevin Bacon movies. Every other actor is just mainly a TV actor.

Michael Gross: Family Ties
Reba McEntire: Reba
Robert Jayne: Wonder Years

and I'm pretty sure they've all been on Boy Meets World or How I Met Your Mother at some point.


Honorable Mentions and because I spent too much time researching this.
Robert Jayne
Tremors 1 - Melvin Plug
Can't Hardly Wait - Boy
Pearl Harbor - Sailor

Michael Gross
Tremors 1, 2, 3, 4 - Burt Gummer
Batman Beyond - Warren McGinnis

Reba McEntire
Tremors 1 - Heather Gummer

Ariana Richards

My 100 movies (as of 2006 - Pre Netflix) 60 - 51

More Honorable Mentions:
I made this list in 2006, at some point I had about 10 other movies in the list which have been since removed. Two of them:

Hot shots
First was a top gun spoof, second was a Rambo spoof. Back before scary movie, and all the terrible ones we have now, (The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It...anyone?) this was what we had. Love the Farley brothers way of writing, where every 30 seconds there is a joke thrown in. So very similar in that Spaceballs, Airplane! line. Lloyd Bridges is brilliant in both. Charlie Sheen...well he did the movie straight from rehab.


Wedding Singer
One of Adam Sandler's finest roles. The music is pretty good, and we have a good villain to root against. Don't think I like Drew Barrymore in any other movie.


60. Predator
3 Predator movies now along with the two Alien verse Predator ones. Haven't seen the new one, but the original two were decent. The formula is simple. There is a team/group and…

STEVE VS MIKE FANTASY FOOTBALL CHALLENGE 2010

Me and Smitty went to 97.1's fantasy football convention today. They promised us fantasy football talk and prizes. Though we showed up 2 hours late, alas we came home with no prizes. There was about 1 hour of lions talk, which is actually kind of boring. Then we did get an hour of Mike Valenti who looks totally different in person than this guy. Mike Valenti? Or the Devil?

We listened to Mike talk to a yahoo expert, which is pretty sweet. I usually hang on to their every word for advice. Anyway I got bored and challenged Mike to a 50 on 50 fantasy football draft. I said I would keep track and I will.

Rules:
Yahoo Default scoring.
No pick ups/drops. Injuries tough luck, though neither of us drafted Brett Farve or Ronnie Brown(who averages 12 games a year for his career)
Must draft 5 Quarterbacks, Tight Ends, Kickers and Defenses
15 Running Backs and Wide Receivers.

Now no one cares to hear about other peoples fantasy teams, nor do I feel like breaking down how this played out(especiall…
