    The Pirates haven't handed out a larger monetary contract than the one they gave to Jason Kendall in 2000 ($60 million).

    Such ingratitude, after all the times I saved your life.

    White Hart Lane ( the station) and White Hart Lane ( the stadium) are also both outside of White Hart Lane ( the ward), but are both in White Hart Lane ( the neighborhood). White Hart Lane (the station) isn't directly on White Hart Lane ( the street) either, but if you walk from White Hart Lane ( the station) to White Hart Lane ( the stadium), most likely you'd take White Hart Lane ( the street). That's probably how White Hart Lane ( the stadium) was named.

    Honestly, I thought the play was closer to contemporary to the book than the present.

    I was surprised to find out that ALW wrote the School of Rock musical.
    - Yeah, you know, a white guy ... mustache ... about six-foot-three.
    - Awfully big mustache.

    Villanova University has had a men's basketball program for 100 years. It has had only 8 head coaches:

    Michael Saxe (6 years)
    Rube Cashman (3 years)
    Doc Jacobs (7 years)
    Alex Severance (25 years)
    Jack Kraft (12 years)
    Rollie Massamino (19 years)
    Steve Lappas (9 years)
    Jay Wright (18 years)

    But that's not nearly as impressive as Syracuse University, which has had a men's basketball team with a known coach since 1903 - and has had only 7 coaches in that time. (Not counting the Mike Hopkins "era".)
