An Actual HEADLINE I’m Proud To Report: -AP source: Zimmerman, Nationals add $100M, 6 years-

(Some Of The Article) By HOWARD FENDRICH, AP Sports Writer

–Ever since he became the Washington Nationals’ very first draft pick, Ryan Zimmerman wanted to stay with the club for the long haul.

Now he’ll get that wish.

The Nationals took what they hope is another step toward consistent contention by locking up their third baseman—and the guy many still call the face of the franchise—through 2019, adding six years to Zimmerman’s existing contract in a deal announced Sunday.

The deal includes a full no-trade clause.

The extra six seasons are worth $100 million, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no financial terms were revealed publicly.

“It’s nice that it’s done,” Zimmerman said at a news conference at the club’s spring training stadium in Viera, Fla. “It’s where I want to be. It’s where I’ve always wanted to be.” …–

Random Movie Mention: VAN DAMME Double Shot Edition: HARD TARGET (1993) and IN HELL (2003)

The Meat Of This “Double Shot Edition” Is The Random Mentioning Of My TWO Favorite Films Starring “The Muscles From Brussels” JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME. The 1ST Mention Goes To This Little Number, JOHN WOO’s 1993 Fun-Fest “HARD TARGET”!!! I Was One Of The Fortunate To Have Seen “HARD TARGET” Within DAYS Of It’s Initial Release, And It’s Honestly Been My FAVE-FAVE Of Ole JCVD’s Since. To ME, “HARD TARGET” Has ALWAYS Been The Most Fun AND The Most Well Put-Together Film In The JCVD Library. The Highlight Of This Film, However, Is NOT JCVD Himself. No, It’s The Combination Of WILFORD BRIMLEY As JCVD’s “Cajun” Uncle, And LANCE HENRIKSEN As The Flick’s BAD BAD BADDIE!!! Trust Me, My Peeps, It’s A PRICELESS 1990s ACTION-GEM!!!

Now, WHY Does 2003s “IN HELL” Belong On My “Double Shot Edition”??? Because JCVD Is Mostly Famous For Doing Those “Fighting Tournament Flicks” Like “BLOODSPORT” Or “KICKBOXER” Or “LIONHEART” Or “THE QUEST” etc etc Well Kiddies, “IN HELL” Is BY BY BY FAR The BEST Of The BEST Of JCVD’s Rather Old And Simple Fightin’ Flicks, Fo SHO!!! Sadly, For JCVD, No One Really Bothered To Watch “IN HELL” As I’m Pretty Sure Everyone Figured “Oh Sheesh, Here’s VAN DAMME With ANOTHER Of Those Cheesy/Crappy Fightin’ Flicks.” When, In All Sincerity, I Think Folks Should See “IN HELL” And Simply Forget About Some Of Those Past Transgressions. Trust Me, My Peeps, If You’ve Liked ANY Of JCVD’s “Tournament Styled Film Entries” Then “IN HELL” May Be That One Film You’ve Overlooked. Anything In The Name Of “Quality Cheesy Entertainment” Fo SHO Fo SHO!!! 😉
