Too bad not too many people know about the late 1970s movie, "The Warriors." It made for a great Halloween costume. Too bad all but a small handful in corporate America understood the humor. The Warriors has just been launched as a special edition DVD and videogame ... so while Star Wars III and its videogame counterpart, Battlefront II, get all of the deserved hype, take a minute to check out The Warriors.
Imagine a bleak future where gangs rule the streets of New York City, from Coney Island to Manhattan, and you have The Warriors. The beauty of "the future" is it is full of pimp outfits, handle-bar moustaches, leather vests, afros and headbands. My favorite gang in the flick is a face-painting gang known as the "baseball furies."
So for all of you polo-shirted, dockers-wearing, moustached business men who didn't get my Halloween get-up, I offer this:
CAN YOU COUNT ... SUCKAS ?????!

In my mind - and the minds of Raiders, A's and Warriors fans everywhere - Bill King was tbe best sports broadcaster ever. May he rest in peace and play the heavenly violins and harps with more dexterity than Kenny Stabler played the Minnesota Vikings defense in Super Bowl 15.
