• Vanderkitten Stalks Matthew Modine

    by  • June 3, 2012 • too random

    I went to the Glencoe Grandprix for another publication yesterday.  It was very cool to see so many top NorCal riders in the women’s race.

    Ruth Winder, fresh off her Sommerville win, was the top NorCal rider in sixth. After the race i got a photo of the Vanderkittens with race Grand Marshall Matthew Modine. They didn’t really stalk him. They are all born in the 80’s and 70s so I got blank looks when I was saying Vision Quest and Full Metal Jacket. Kids today need more education I think more races should have grand marshals.

    Modine is in two of the best sports movies of all time. Vision Quest is sort of cheesy at times but this little speech is awesome.



    Of course, he’s in Any Given Sunday too. I have no idea what he plays in the football movie. Still… it has the best locker room speech given by the scene chewing Al Pacino.
