Open Thread: Brian Bruney, actor


A riveting nugget of information from Tyler Kepner today:

Finally, Brian Bruney’s movie re-aired on cable Sunday morning. You didn’t know Bruney was a film star? In 1990, when he was eight years old, he appeared in Kindergarten Cop with Arnold Schwarzenegger. The movie was filmed in Astoria, Oregon, the next town over from Bruney’s hometown of Warrenton.

The producers needed some extras for a scene where a bunch of kids pour out of the school during a fire drill. Bruney is one of the kids, wearing a blue-and-white striped shirt with a bright orange hat. That hat was the suggestion of his grandmother, who told him to wear it so she could spot him when the movie came out.

Exciting stuff, huh? I guess it’s better than talking about the Bruney-Reynolds feud. Yeah … there’s not a whole lot going on right now. PeteAbe’s got a bunch of pictures from camp today, but that’s about it. Otherwise, use this as your open thread. Anything goes, as usual.

Oh, quick note: I’ll be on regular RAB reader and commenter Joey H.’s radio show tonight around 8:30. You can listen in here.

Update (7:47pm): Steven found a clip of Bruney’s acting gig. Skip forward to the 6:07 mark, and like T-Kep’s piece says, he’s the one wearing the orange hat. Can’t miss ‘em.

Update (7:54pm) Manimal has a screen cap.

  1. Joey H says:

    As I look through ST pictures and posts all I can think is how happy AJ is to be a Yankee. I think he is going to excel here.

    • Ryan S. says:

      He certainly did as a Blue Jay. Maybe he’s the type of guy who just excels in the NY spotlight. I remember someone on ESPN or something saying there’s never been a guy who signed a $80M contract who has received such little press as AJ Burnett, so he should have a slightly easier time adjusting than he may have had previously.

  2. Jamal G. says:

    You see, Harold Reynolds? That’s what happens when stupid people make their idiotic opinions public, they offend others.

    • Drew says:

      Take it easy man, Bruney didn’t even play last year, marte had a hard time getting lefties out(which is his job) and veras is rather bummish. The fact Reynolds says we have a hard time getting to Mo isn’t that big of a deal and he’s probably right. Now if Bruney does what he’s capable of he’ll prove everyone wrong.

  3. Sweet Dick Willie says:

    “If they do that, they would have Bruney, Chamberlain, (Jose) Veras, (Damaso) Marte,” Reynolds says. “You’d be making it a six-inning game for 162 games. Book them into the World Series.”

    Do you think these asshats say this for the ratings or because they believe it?

    Either way, I’m sick of it.

  4. Mike Pop says:

    Should I bank on Travis Snider or Adam Jones and trade Carl Crawford for Felix Hernandez or Fransico Liriano?

  5. Manimal says:

    I will try to get a screen capture of bruney.

  6. Mike Pop says:

    Looks like Griffey might be going to the Braves.

  7. Manimal says:

    Man, he was a scrawny little guy.

  8. Joey H says:

    Oh and by the way guys me and mike are going to go over Spring Training stuff. Live at 8.

  9. Manimal says:

    BTW, Joey and Mike, I’m going to try and get my webcam to work on that live chat, If not I’ll call in.

  10. Matt says:

    Blazing Saddles is on (sweet)….AMC. Not so sweet.

  11. Mike Pop says:

    Lol @ Shaq.

  12. Jake H says:

    Brackman threw BP today and according to Pete A the glove was popping and the coaches were impressed.

  13. Matt says:

    There must be something on that isn’t the NBA All-Star Game or edited Blazing Saddles, right?

  14. kevin says:

    has anyone been down to spring training before? ill be in tampa this thursday and i would like to drop by but i dont know when they’ll be on the field and how much access ill get if i go check it out

    • Artist formerly known as 'The' Steve says:

      Spring training is great. Not only will you get autographs before the game, you can even stand behind the batting cage during batting practice.

      If you want, you can also sit in the dugout during the game. There’s so many guys working out down there coming and going that nobody even notices. Just get yourself a jersey with a high number. If anyone asks, tell them you played in Charleston last year.

  15. Anyone else find it interesting that DeJesus’ WPA was almost the same as Bobby’s and Cust’s, even though he played only 135 games compared to Bobby’s 156 and Cust’s 148?

  16. John Kruk looks like a douche with those glasses.

  17. Matt says:

    John Kruk just said the Yankees need to figure out what the Yankees are going to do with Joba.

    Does he not read the newspapers?

    And he’s starting a B-Jobber argument we don’t need to get into.

  18. Manimal says:


    Don’t think anyone commented on this article here. Bruney spoke about the Reynolds saying the yankees have trouble giving the ball to Mariano.

  19. Mike Pop says:

    Craig Sager and his crazy suits.

  20. Mike Pop says:

    Kruk also said that the Yankees offense may not be good enough to compete.

  21. Mike says:

    You can link directly to certain times in YouTube videos.

    So the Bruney walk-on is here:


    That opens up the video right at the 6m 7 sec mark.

  22. Mike Pop says:

    Off to the Casino!
