Punk rock dads open up In the documentary "The Other F Word" the word implied in the title is fatherhood; the film takes a look at the seemingly contradictory transition into middle age for men who are in a working rock band and also trying to settle into a stable family life. The most boldfaced name in the movie is likely Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers (interviewed alongside his daughter), but the main character who emerges is Jim Lindberg, longtime singer with the band Pennywise who also published his own book called "Punk Rock Dad. " He gives the greatest insight into the struggles of being a present, active parent and husband while making a living brashly rocking out, juggling tour dates with father-daughter dances.

I don't like to have ridiculous waste. I was raised to be wise and prudent and not overpay." This makes White the perfect person to run the Dodgers' scouting operations at a crucial juncture in club history. The no-longer-young core is rapidly approaching free agency, and how the Dodgers manage the inevitable roster renovation might well determine whether the franchise preserves the anticipation of a World Series or reverts to the mediocrity of the post-Kirk Gibson era. The Dodgers no longer spend big bucks on free agents, so White and his staff must sign enough prospects to replenish the major league roster and provide General Manager Ned Colletti with a stash of trade chips as well.
