Happy Opening Day!
This post is coming at you 2 hours and 37 minutes away from first pitch of a baseball team I've followed since I was young lad in the early 80s. The New York Mets came so close last year and the bad guys won the World Series. I'm not one of those appreciative-of-good-baseball fans. My team lost last year and it was upsetting. Not as upsetting when Carlos Beltran watched that curveball for strike three from Adam Wainwright during Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. No. That was horrible. The TV went off and stunned silence controlled the room for a good ten minutes after that awful ending.
Enough bad vibes. The baseball season starts tonight! Why aren't you excited? Is it because you like movies and not sports? Why not both? There's some really good baseball movies out there. Major League. The Natural. Eight Men Out. Field of Dreams. (Yes, all dudes cry at that ending) I even have a little affinity for Little Big League. But in honor of opening day, I thought it would best to share a scene from arguably the best baseball movie. Bull Durham.
(If you haven't seen this movie. Go see it.)
Enjoy! (Curse word alert)
