BEATS THE TAR OUT OF AN OSCAR:

Chicago's Michael Clarke Duncan, an Oscar nominee for 'The Green Mile,' dies at 54 (BILL ZWECKER,  September 3, 2012, Chicago Sun-Times)

He often loved recalling a favorite youthful stunt. In 1979, Mr. Duncan was part of Steve Dahl's famous "Disco Demolition Night" at Comiskey Park. He was among the first 100 people to run on to the field and he slid into third base. Unfortunately, during the ensuing melee, his prized silver belt buckle was stolen. "Security came after me, so we had to run," he laughingly told the Sun-Times in 2006. "It was death to disco that night. I am part of history."
